@pixelpaperyarn well I think `==` coerces instances of Boolean to their equivalent boolean value, whereas `!` doesn't, it just sees a truthy object, so inverts it to `false`. Not that I'm complaining, i just find it interesting some of the weird pointless stuff you can do.

const f = new Boolean(false); console.log(f == !f); // Outputs `true`

Rights for people, rules for corporations. Add your name to the European Initiative: stopisds.org/?fbclid=IwAR3khu1

ISDS is effectively a corporate court system, which forces national governments to protect corporate interests, and protects corporations from prosecution when they inflict human rights violations.

A European treaty to hold corporations to account is being blocked by rich governments and corporate interests. This petition will be used by unions and social organisations to lobby governments to ratify the treaty.

Sharks are older than trees. 🦈

The first plant species which can be considered a real tree is known as Archaeopteris, and it evolved about 350 million years ago.

The first sharks evolved 50 million years before that!

So are there any libraries out there for parsing/normalising & JSON objects? All the ones I've found seem to be incomplete or not very clear on what they actually do/how to use.
