Seriously. I hate GC. It's terrible. It ruins everything. It's slow. It's complicated. It tanks compared to refcounting. It doesn't take a genius to use weakptrs where necessary. WHO THOUGHT GC WAS A GOOD IDEA
It could all work Dino, it could all work. I could be running parallel logic right now in 16 threads. I could be happily shouting from rooftops that FPLT IS SOLVE because that extra bump from threading would get me there. But I'm not. All because of the GC.
But here here, the night is still young, there are still many more hours for me to be defeated by this ugly beast.
