О лени

Придумал дежурную фразу для употребления в объяснениях ленивости:

The term "laziness" has a precise mathematical meaning which you can learn from books on call by need lambda calculus. The layman definition "nothing is evaluated until the result is needed elsewhere" is just a metaphor for newbies. It's a simplification so in complex situations like this one understanding of the full theory is required to explain what's going on.
