Some of you might be going: woah, 'on mouseUp'? That sounds eerily familiar. This is where all that stuff came from.
NaN != NaN
I don't want to encourage people to think "oh double precision then I don't have to worry about precision." I want them to fucking figure out how the math works. I want the language to make them figure it out. I don't want it to try to do it for them because it's a computer language, not a person, and it absolutely will do the figuring out wrong some day.
. It's exactly like some guys I know doing embedded in another field who did exactly the same thing, "Oh we'll just throw double precision at it and then we won't have to worry about accuracy requirements." Only they did this on a 80186 so it crawled and THEN they didn't know about the rounding thing and it created something that would have been kind of like the Toyota acceleration thing if our industry made cars.
