Nerdy Book In-Jokes

Tal Cohen maintains a great list of book in-jokes found in maths and computer publications. My favourite one is this index entry of The Java Programming Language:

In the index, we find (p. 579):

IndexOutOfBoundsException: 30, 196, 210, 596

The book is only 595 pages long.

Found via reddit.

    That’s great! I like the ones in the Java language spec.
