This is the sort of thing one can find in my Computer Science 241 homework when I'm tracing any mysterious bug that makes no sense. That block of code was executed, and I just figured out what causes the error (even when not part of the assignment, I make toString() useful).

For me, it's sort of catharitic to see the computer apparently as frustrated as I get, hence cursing code.
