FULL DISCUSSION
 

This is great - but remember there are some gotchas when you start passing console.log in as the function argument. If the function you're passing to will take a variadic function (i.e a function that can take a different numbers of arguments), you may get unexpected results.

For instance

[1, 2, 3].forEach(console.log)

results in

1 0 [ 1, 2, 3 ]
2 1 [ 1, 2, 3 ]
3 2 [ 1, 2, 3 ]
 

It really all comes down to being careful with parameters. As useful as this trick is, it can be dangerous if one has not read enough documentation. "With great power comes great responsibility" after all. Thanks for this! I appreciate all the quirks being discussed here in the comments section because even I wouldn't have thought of these quirks.
