(no subject)

Today I learned:

- in pronouncing dates written in the month-date style, the article before the date is apparently a marker of BrE vs AmE;
- there’s the `self` property on the `window` object, which also exists in other browser contexts, such as web workers or service workers. Previously, the only `self` I’ve seen in javascript code was the popular hack of `var self = this` for dealing with the changing context referred to by the `this` keyword.
