Pixel Perfect Collision Detection in JavaScript

I'm working on a simple game to refresh my canvas knowledge. I decided to built the game entirly in JavaScript, which isn't easy to do due to the fact it isn't designed for that purpose. There are no nice little helpers like drawing, object rendering, and most importantly collision detection. I've decided it would probably be easier to use an engine, but since you all know I hate using libraries or engines unless really necessary, I've decided to go about doing all of the code entirely myself from scratch. After a bit of playing around, and some memories from maths lessons in school I figured out how to do collision detection in raw JavaScript code, which I'm going to share with you

Hi guys! It's been a long time since I've posted on here, but I've been a very busy little worker bee! I will explain more about that in my next post, however. Right now I want to share some code that has been annoying me for the past 4 hours, as maybe it will help someone in the future. I'm currently working on an arcade racing game, just so I have something challenging to keep me out of trouble, but it's proving more difficult than I thought.
