Yes, I'm a geek

I had the realization that in a purely functional language, doubly linked lists are impossible. Furthermore I quickly realized cycles in all data structures are impossible.

A strange feeling of vertigo came over me as I realized the scenery had changed when I wasn't looking. Had the very ground I'd been standing on disappeared? Would I fall into the void for lack of these important features? But then I looked down and saw I was still on solid ground. The ground had changed to be sure, but it was there and I felt relieved. And oddly exhilarated.
