Short Circuits in Javascript

Remember, Javascript, like most languages, short-circuits when dealing with if statements.

What does that mean?

Well for example, when running an OR evaluation with two functions, such as

if( doThis(var1) || doThat(var2) ){
    alert("Woot!");
}

If the first function is true, the second function will not execute.

Something to keep in mind for future reference if you’re wondering why your function’s not running.
