Functions in JavaScript are objects. As objects, functions possess methods, including the powerful Bind method.

JavaScript Singleton Design Pattern

The Singleton pattern restricts an instantiation of an object to a single instance thus reducing its memory allocation and allowing a "lazy loading" on an as-needed basis. The advantages of that pattern are the reduced memory occupation, single point of access and a postponed initialization which prevents instantiation until it is required. As a disadvantage one may point out that object is hardly ever reset once instantiated and sometimes there might be hidden dependencies.
