Java does have the ability to do unchecked exceptions. It only checks exceptions derived from "Exception"; unfortunately this doesn't help when you want exceptions thrown by other people's code (like the standard library) to be unchecked.

I was impressed to find out that javascript has closures, whatever its shortcomings are.

I've noticed that while XSLT was designed to be programmed in a functional manner, very few implementations have tail call optimization.
