JavaScript All the Way Down

There is a well known story about a scientist who gave a talk about the Earth and its place in the solar system. At the end of the talk, a woman refuted him with “That’s rubbish; the Earth is really like a flat dish, supported on the back of a turtle.” The scientist smiled and asked back “But what’s the turtle standing on?”, to which the woman, realizing the logical trap, answered, “It’s very simple: it’s turtles all the way down!” No matter the verity of the anecdote, the identity of the scientist (Bertrand Russell or William James are sometimes mentioned), or even if they were turtles or tortoises, today we may apply a similar solution to Web development, with “JavaScript all the way down”.
