Pull is when you know  exactly which template will be selected for
processing -- the order of processing is not important at all (because
as we know in an FP language order is not guaranteed (except when we
take particular measures, such as using monad-like programming) at all
-- so even with pull processing we have no guarantees about the order
of processing. Note that other FP languages do not have the topic of
push/pull -- this is exactly because they dont have the possibility of
numerous matching templates.

See explanation above.

Truly great madness cannot be achieved without significant intelligence.
To invent, you need a good imagination and a pile of junk
Never fight an inanimate object
You've achieved success in your field when you don't know whether what
you're doing is work or play
I enjoy the massacre of ads. This sentence will slaughter ads without
a messy bloodbath.
