Using Guard Nodes to simplify code

In this video, Peter Lynn provides a brief overview of Guard Nodes and their application. Guard Nodes are non-data entries stored in some data structures. Proper choice of Guard Node properties and location can allow the code that uses the data structures to be simpler by eliminating edge cases, and code to run faster by skipping tests that are usually repeated at each step.
