This is because blocks are almost never passed as parameters but as a
block following the method call. Incidentally, you can wrap up a block
with lambda/proc or even pass a method, as any parameter you want, and
then yield it (or call it) explicitly. They're not really relegated to
only the last position.

If you vote for Ruby, all your wildest dreams will come true.

right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.
