Sorry for the top post. 

Often when I think I'm being clever in code I put extra comments around it because the likelihood of a difficult bug will be particularly high in that area. ‎Perhaps these areas in my code require more comments. Or better yet, more linefeeds. :-/
But ‎I found an example in code last night that I think works. I had to check all three variables in a function for type. One line if-then-else's were very effective for reducing the lines and creating a block of code that I can recognize without having to read. 

As I said, I think the problem dictates the style. I also think my Lua code is very clever. XD

That explains a lot :-)
