In the pre-PC, pre-Linux days, I was working in a company making their own machines, their proprietary systems programming language and of course their own compiles. Sometimes it crashed fatally with the message "Something wrong".

We started competing: Who can make the shortest, simplest program that creates a "Something wrong" crash. Of course we reported to the compiler responsible, and the next (or maybe second) compiler release handled that case. But as "Something wrong" was a catch-all comparable to "Unhandled exception", we regularly came up with new cases. The shortest program to result in "Something wrong" was four lines long Smile | :) , about as complex as "HelloWorld".

Religious freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make five.
