An infinite number of people walk into a bar. The first person goes up to the bartender and orders a full beer. The second person goes up to the bartender and orders half a beer. The third person goes up and orders a quarter of a beer. The bartender looks at them, says, "you're all a bunch of idiots," pours two full beers, and walks away.

I like the first one the most. It's very geeky but who cares. The second one is nice to.

So we're using "to" instead of "too" in this thread. I'll follow this tradition to (BTW I didn't understand both of the jokes)...

The first is related to array overrun in C, hence not understood by Java devs
In the second, the infinite geometric series 1 + 1/2 + 1/4 + 1/8 ... is equal to 2 (related to Zeno's paradox)

That string collected lot of garbage on its way to the bar. Thats what coke and rum can do to young Strings, not null terminated.
