DarkSabre, if you're reading this, I suggest that new threads have to be requested before being created.

When you dream of sheep jumping over
public class Sheep {
public static void main (String[] args)
int sheepnum=400;
while sheepnum>0 {
System.out.println ("There are "+sheepnum+" sheep")
sheepnum=sheepnum-1
}
}

In an Academic Team practice once, we had this exchange:

Coach (reading a question): "Identify this East African country based on its list of rulers-"
*I buzz in*
Coach: "...I didn't even read the list yet, let me read it".
Me: "Nah, it's ok, I wanna answer. Ethiopia".
Coach: "...What? How did you get that?"
Me: "Well, the only East African countries with notable leaders are Egypt and Ethiopia. I figured that Egypt was way too obvious, and I assume that the last name on that list was Hallie Selassie, one of the rulers of Ethiopia."
Coach: *looks at list and sees that the last name on the list is Hallie Selassie* "...How...what?"

My other favorite was:

Coach (reading a question): "Lepidolite..."
Me *buzzing in, interrupting the question* "Mica".
Coach: "...Yes."
2009 events:
Fossils: 1st @ reg. 3rd @ states (stupid dinosaurs...) 5th @ nats.
Dynamic: 1st @ reg. 19thish @ states, 18th @ nats
Herpetology (NOT the study of herpes): NA
Enviro Chem: 39th @ states =(
Cell Bio: 9th @ reg. 18th @ nats
Remote: 6th @ states 3rd @ Nats
