'cat' && 'dog' what does that return? Why? How might that be useful?
'cat' || 'dog' what does that return? Why? How might that be useful?

var attrib = obj && obj.subobject && obj.subobject.attribute
or if attribute is just one level down, use:
var attrib = obj ? obj.attribute : 'default'
var thing = getThing(parameter) || reporterror(message)

var contents = fs.open('filename') || process.exit(1) (actually only useful in node)
