Oooh, better yet, you could try to write one ;)

Problem is, as soon as I write one, I'd probably become aware of it, thus triggering itself before it's even widespread enough. It seems part of the definition is that the bug is rather spectacular once you notice it... in which case, why would people want to use my spectacularly buggy software? :)

So deliberately setting out to write one doesn't quite seem to work.

Gah, I've seen more of those than I care to admit.

Really? Sounds like it would be *incredibly* rare.

I am a very sloppy coder.
