Warning: This is a jestful tirade of various UI development curiosities…
But you're not stepping up anymore. No, that next step through will lead you nowhere you want to be. An event listener maybe, if you're lucky. Most likely it's your UI middleware or perhaps it's some View logic that runs in response to that jQuery-bound event that you set up when your mind still made sense to you.
In defeat you sit there and wonder: when did everything get so complex?
But you don't really wonder because you know. It makes perfect sense–the various steps leading to this. It was inevitable. But it's okay; it really is! Because Mr Rogers, as he scrolls his mouse-wheel, will realise that this shiny thing on the page is slowly swivelling. And he'll think "Gosh, that's nice."
Thank God, you say, it's all for something.
