// @requires jQuery 1.3.2+
// @params el: string, jQuery object, node element.

var hasEvent = function( el, eventName ){
	if( !$( el ).length || !$( el ).data( 'events' ) ){

console.clear();
console.log( hasEvent( el, 'click' ) );// returns true;
 
console.log( hasEvent( el, 'focusNow' ) );// returns false;
el.bind( 'focusNow', $.noop );
console.log( hasEvent( el, 'focusNow' ) );// returns true;
 
console.log( hasEvent( document.body, 'onload' ) );// returns false;
$(document.body).bind( 'onload', $.noop );
console.log( hasEvent( document.body, 'onload' ) );// returns true;
