You missed my one, though I think the "ballistics algebra" one is better.

ISTR that the point of the original list was originally to show that, 
though you can screw up with C, with every other language you can screw 
up in far more complicated and inscrutable ways.  Ballistics algebra is 
indeed a way to screw up that is not possible in C.
