Hi, I'm Eric. I'm here to talk about what seems like an absurd idea:
that if-then-else had to be invented.
If-then-else is how we talk about conditions in programming languages:
if something is true, then do a thing, else do a different thing.
That's just English, right? Except that it isn't.
I can't use "else" as a conjunction in normal speech,
only in computer programs.
