Mixing && and || Conditions.

This works right? The JavaScript Basics video about Conditions didn't mention it. This would be nice to reduce the number of conditional statements needed, maybe. I would think we can but they'd have to be formatted with parentheses like this:

var hunger = false;
var food = true;
var justAte = true;
if ( ( hunger && food ) || justAte ) {
    console.log( 'No problem.' );
} else {
    console.log( 'Better order some takeout.' );
}

Any reason why not this:

var hunger = false;
var food = true;
var justAte = true;
if ( (hunger && food) || justAte) {
    console.log( 'No problem.' );
} else {
    console.log( 'Better order some takeout.' );
}

Errp. Yeah, that's better
