Javascript Should Have a groups_of Function

I forget why, but there was a certain point in time where I thought that javascript should have a getgroupsof function. So here is a quick and easy implementation that will roll through an array and grab elements in groups of n. Anywho, now you can enjoy countless hours of grabbing things, n at a time, yippeee!

function get_group_of(limit,array){
    group = Array();
    while(limit-- > 0){ 
        if(value = array.shift()){
    return group.length > 0? group: false;

stuff = new Array();
for(i=0; i<1000; i++){ stuff.push(i); }

    for(letter in group){
    final_group.push('===next group====');
