Go developers watch videos like Wat and feel smug. After all, Go is a typesafe language with no automatic type promotion. Go avoids magic; we accept some verbosity as a fair price to pay for not having to memorize obscure rules. Right?
Well, not entirely. Go has some weird corners, too. If you understand what's going on behind the scenes, the behavior makes sense.
