Want to hear some serious nerd bullshit?

Monads, the hardest concept in all of computer science for anyone to understand

are just

the things between pipes

monad | monad | monad | monad | no --really

"But they're pipes with types!"
"Oh, that's always a mess."
"I KNOW!!!"
Monads Are Just Pipes

This is like the Battlestar Galactica "It Was Angels All Along" of Computer Science
To be fair, Monads can route nonlinearly, and dynamically too. They’re still monadic w/o, and pipes nonlinearize.

Bullshit was a bit much. Pure math is talking bout pure math things. It’s their language.

“Well defined interfaces, known good state” is not just theirs to enjoy.
OK, not just a bit. *facepalm*
