I think there are cases where comments between operators & operands can be useful in long expressions. Arguably there are nicer ways to write this, but this pattern is pretty common in mathy code:

let total = (a +      // base amount
             b / 2 +  // half of leftovers from last time
             c + 1)   // fudge factor
