yeah, that's weird, but it works because apply() doesn't care what is in front or behind it. it's a generic. i guess you can think of it as being "loose"; it doesn't care what function, this
, or arguments
it's hooked up with. heh.
it made "click" here. what I didn’t see is that the Math.max
in front of apply.bind()
is just the source for apply()
and hence the first parameter is the this
and the second the this
(which is irrelevant as there is no this
in a static function).
