if you think the primary function of code is to be run by computers and not read by humans i invite you to start littering your code with dozens of useless random variables. the computer just optimizes them out anyway right?

@dankwraith
If there were enough unused variables you could name them so they together explain what the program does.

@dankwraith it's because most programming languages aren't conducive to a pointfree style

@dankwraith I've worked on projects that used this technique!
