| I think the lisp syntax Blake refers to is:
| left parenthesis
| function name
| arguments
| right parenthesis
| which applies to any instruction, whether it's a variable declaration, a
| function definition, an addition, etc. and the same syntax also applies
| recursively to the arguments.

  but this is _obviously_ false.  why do people believe such nonsense?
