JavaScript JavaScript and the DOM (Retiring) Responding to User Interaction Delaying Execution with setTimeout()

For those having difficulty with callback functions https://teamtreehouse.com/library/callback-functions-in-javascript

I believe Andrew Chalkey's Callback Function course should be a prerequisite to the Dom course or at least sandwiched between other videos in this series. Otherwise, there are a lot of mental leaps that have to be made. I felt a lot more comfortable with the material after gaining a better understanding of callbacks, anonymous functions, and the arrow syntax. I understand this isn't a question, but hopefully it will help anyone stuck.
