comment Is using F# good enough for learning the important functional programming concepts of Haskell?
well, if you squint and look at the C# samples, you can pretend it's imperative F#. You're right that there's mostly no good demonstration of how to do it in a proper functional manner though.

comment Software Developer Interview Question - Fair or Unfair
It's a very common interview question: "Why are manhole covers round?" and the expected answer is supposed to be "so they can't fit into (and drop into) the hole." (and not any number of other reasonable reasons, such as "because the hole is round (because it's drilled round)" or "so you can roll the cover to move it after lifting it up (otherwise it either requires dragging, or two people to move)"
