ObjC to work in geometry, metaphysically hurts

The well known Erica Sadun posted something that totally resonates with my experience so far. If you need just one compelling single example, take CGRect: Swift 2.2 lets you expand this essential structure with methods and properties that let you center on a zero origin, or scale and transform, or add math to combine instances. It’s so practically useful that going back to ObjC to work in geometry metaphysically hurts. I could have not expressed that better than that! [source]
