Hehe,

Whenever mention of 'implicits considered dangerous' is brought up in a scala context I always think back to this small piece of British comedy gold.

...think you need to have seen the original robocop (1987) to fully appreciate the reference but I think it sums up perfectly my (and many others'!) experiences with the magical world of implicits in scala :-)

Cheers,

A.
