Always wondered why I prefer RPN while it is obviously a low level language close to what microprocessors do.

Judging from how well drivers can compare two numbers (the posted limit and the speed of their car) and act (or not) based on the result of the comparison, I suspect it's because we're actually smart enough to realize how VERY slightly, if at all, we are "smarter" than the grain of silicon in the microprocessor!

GREAT explanation in that video. Just wish he had used the bigger disks to represent the sums and products, and marked them with "a", "b", "c", "b c *" and "a b c * +"

Takes me back to handwriting assembly code and hand-entering the opcodes and operands with a hex keypad on a MC6800 trainer board in a sophomore EE elective I took in college.
