this is not "intelligence" its just pure math. the '&&' says if BOTH
expressions are true then the whole expression is true.

so if the first one is false, the whole is false, why checking the next one
in the underlaying C it would be something like this
if ( expression == false ) return false;
if ( expression == false) return false;
return true;
