What the JavaScript?

You've heard years of complaints about JavaScript and how many WTFs it has. It's certainly popular to be in the "I use JS but it's a crazy language" camp. But is it really riddled with bad design?

There are definitely some legitimate WTFs, but they're most likely not the things you think. We're going to meander through of bunch of the weird corners of the language -- not the usual suspects -- and then look FORWARD to the new WTFs that ES6 (or ES2015 or whatever) has in store for us.

If you're looking for the "bad parts" to avoid, ditch everything you've heard before and "let" these dance in your nightmares.
