comment Terminal vs bash?
That's what I meant, yes. But that question is asking for a disambiguation of terminology, while this question is asking how the OS X terminal is related to the bash shell, which is now clear to me. Your question is related and helps but is not the same.

comment Terminal vs bash?
@Gilles this is not a duplicate!!!! I already knew about that question and your answer and I have read it and it did NOT tell me why my terminal can run bash commands on its own and what the difference is when I execute bash again! Your answer makes no mention of the fact that the OS X terminal is executing bash by default!

comment Terminal vs bash?
The arbitrary-level nesting is actually kind of awesome. Had to go test that by entering bash repeatedly and then ctrl+Ding my way back out. Really neat.

So what does the bash command DO then? What is the purpose of it? Why does it change the prompt from computername:pwd to bash-3.2$ ?

comment Using Object.create for inheritance?
I just don't understand what happens when you call Object.create(Shape). I get that it doesn't work but I don't know why. If you take out the line Shape.call(this) and use Object.create(Shape) instead of Object.create(Shape.prototype), then instantiate a Rectangle, the resulting object has neither x nor y nor move. So what happened? What is being set as what?

This is a really superb explanation of an extremely ambiguous, cloudy subject. Thank you.
