I know I quote an old post but it stuck out to me.

JavaScript has absolutely nothing to do with Java...except for the name. It's a different language with completely different paradigms (eg. functional programming) and the OO part is very different too compared to Java.

I know they aren't related. What I meant was that I can think like a programmer at a basic level, at the very least.
