Swift ThoughtsSwift Thoughts

I've been working on converting a Swift 1.1 project into Swift 1.2 last week (I know it's late!), and one thing that popped out at me was how natural it felt downcasting using as in Swift 1.1 and lower in certain cases, yet how wrong it now feels with as being switched to as! in Swift 1.2.

I've been working on my dissonance with the conclusion that in some cases, it's really ok to use as!. After some discussions, I agree with @allonsykraken on when to use implicitly unwrapped optionals.
