What the!
I knew Javascript is messed up as hell but this...

I wondered an hour why "MyObject.size" is zero every time until I finally reallised that I only forgot the brackets.
Why, why does this return zero instead of throwing an exception, or at least "Function" or something like that?

That's bullshit! Arrrrgh...

    Good guy JavaScript just wants to work. It is the developer who is terrible. 😋

    So your saying it's Javascript fault when it doesn't execute a function, if your not executing it?

    Get your toolset right, and don't blame the language for allowing flexible things.

    Read an object what doesn't exist? This would have the value undefined.

    Or what are you talking about?

    @plusgut In which case would a result of zero be helpful?

    Zero? That is not the case.

    @Benedikt I was talking to @Jop- an not existing property has the value undefined, that is not the same as zero.

    Show me the codesnippet what you are talking about.

    Are you using "use strict"?

    (a good linter would catch this....)
    (Also, typescript if you really want)
