# Inheritance is a way to retain features of old code in newer code. The programmer derives
# from an existing function or block of code by making a copy of the code, then making
# changes to the copy. The derived code is often specialized by adding features not
# implemented in the original. In this way the old code is retained but the new code inherits
# from it.
# Unlike Object Oriented programming, inheritance in Abject-O need not be limited to classes
# - functions and blocks may also inherit from other code. Programs that use inheritance are
# characterized by similar blocks of code with small differences appearing throughout the source.
# Another sign of inheritance is static members: variables and code that are not directly
# referenced or used, but serve to maintain a link to the original base or parent code.

# Method chaining helps methods adhere to the single responsibility principle as well as
# improving performance and saving memory by getting rid of all those pesky local variables.
# Such eval! So performant! Much wow!
