So I'm dinking around in the browser console trying to figure out something on a web page and think to myself how much easier it would be if this page had jQuery on it. So, I'm a programmer, right? I should be able to write a console script to add jQuery to whatever page I want! So I start. Hmm, I'll use $('<script></script>') to create the script element, then, let's see, attr() to set the type and point src to a jQuery file. Then I'll probably want to use appendTo() or something like that to add it to the head.

Then it dawns on me.

(I Googled and found a POJS snippet that does exactly what I want, so I'm all set. Just wanted to share my Friday morning moment.)

Bootstrapping!



Seriously, it is amazing how, once you get used to having jQuery around, how lost one can feel without it.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
