Yeah. Like the use of "throw" and "catch"; ".inject"; "yieieild" that's 
not really the yield of coroutines, but just a way to call the unnamed 
closure (or the unnamed unnamed function) that was passed to the method 
as the last parameter; the fact that "and" and "or" have the same 
precedence, while && has bigger precedence than ||, etc. etc. etc.

The fact that I'm supposed to write

 puts 1 + 2 +
  3

or

 puts 1 + 2 \
  + 3

(Visual Basic anyone?) it fairly ... wuby as well.
