[Vm-dev] HackerNews + vm-dev = a lightbulb saying "STACK!"

What is cool in those stack-manipulation languages family, that they
allow you to directly manipulate stack (tautology ;)

It is easy to express function call(s) in those languages, unlike
procedural ones.
In procedural languages, we have to go to great lengths implementing
semantics, which directly manipulates stack, like in compilers or FFI.
In stack manipulation languages, however, this is directly available
as basic,core functionality, on which you build everything else.
