Oh my… that’s a wonderful joke! The comments are priceless!

<!-- Modernizr might be useful so our CSS department can hook into what different browsers support -->
<!-- LOL @ CSS department! You mean those designer hippies from the top floor? -->
<!-- LOL yeah, and stop using our repository for chatting :D -->
<!-- But this is all stripped during our build step, right? -->
<!-- We're going to use Bootstrap for our building blocks. Well, only for the parts we haven't designed yet, because it's so good -->
<!-- TODO: wrap everything in one single JS file, like Meteor does -->
<!-- NOTE: but then we'll lose our caching benefits! By the way, why aren't we using Meteor? -->
<!-- TODO: add “accessibility” when we're done. We're going to get angry Tweets otherwise! -->
<!-- NOTE: About that: I've heard someone is working on a11y.js or something, which automagically adds WHY-ARIA to everything! -->
<!-- Right, enough April fooling around :) Turn off JavaScript in your browser to turn on “Server-Side Rendering” for our website! -->
<!-- By the way, try browsing the Web _without JavaScript_ for a day, it's frightening how much we developers are breaking (yes, breaking!) nowadays! -->
<!-- Next time you're coming up with smart JS solutions, take a step back. The beauty of the Web lies in the combination of _all_ layers -->
