How did the nil make it past my assert?

There's no particular reason why [[s = "f"; function [s]() end]]
shouldn't work. And then I think about [[local function [s]() end]]...

The first rule of NaN is: you do not talk about NaN.

    nan=0/0; assert(not (1<nan or 1>nan or 1==nan))

The second rule of NaN is: you do not talk about NaN.


The third rule of NaN is signalling NaNs mean the fight is over.

"This is my quiet NaN. There are 2^52-2 doubles like it, but this one is mine."
