var x = {key: 'value'}

var sheep={"height":20,"name":"Melvin"};
var clonedSheep=JSON.parse(JSON.stringify(sheep));

//note: cloning like this will not work with some complex objects such as:  Date(), undefined, Infinity
// For complex objects try: lodash's cloneDeep() method or angularJS angular.copy() method
