Deleting stuff with javascript

Would you like to clean house with js without messing around with hidden stuff? Piece of cake:

document.getElementById("thing_to_delete").parentNode.removeChild(document.getElementById("thing_to_delete"));

Yes, it's kinda weird, just like referring to myself as "the son of my father", but it actualy works.
