    I read this. I waited 20 hours and read it again. It still didn't make any
    sense.

    As I understand a stack (I once tried to learn Forth), anything put on the
    stack has to be dealt with and removed before anything that was already on
    the stack. It's like the pile of crap on my desk. Last in, first out.

    But that's not what we're dealing with here (not that I really believe
    we're dealing with it anyway). The alleged list in this case is like the
    doughnut cooker at Krispy Kreme: new circles of batter go in at one end and
    come out as finished rings of ecstasy at the other end... in the SAME ORDER
    they went in. First in, first out.
