Code That Made Me Cry, #CTMMC™

95% of all code makes me cry. The other 5% are white space.

Just to be Sure (Java, #20 / 48)

// test run #1
test();
for (int i=0; i<10; i++) { 
  // calling repeatedly to increase chances of a clean-up
  System.gc(); 
}
// test run #2
test();        

And then, there are those who repeat things. Just to be sure. What's next? Executing (a == b) 10 times to be sure it's true?
