    Today I found the most fascinating thing ever on this forum, it was a thread that showcased the most awesome recursion ever. Follow this [ame="http://forums.tf2maps.net/showthread.php?p=112236"]link [/ame]here for details!

    Do you have any funny stories involving recursion? Come share them! We'd love to hear them over and over again.

    No, this is fail. Awhile back... maybe... 4-5 (6?!) years? There was an epic recursive thread on the internet, note I said internet, not forum. It talked about how cool "this" was and directed you to a link, which was on another forum, same thing, worded differently. It stretched across a multitude of forums, probably over a hundred, just kept on going.

    It was the single most awesome unplanned, collaborative, cross-community, cross-demographic, confusion stunt ever.

    edit: upon further recollection, I believe the premise was "how to occupy an idiot"

    serously, do you know what recursion is?

    Cn+1 = F(Cn) where F(Cn) != Cn+1
    wich will end with a Cn such that Cn= F(Cn)

    learn some math.

    (don't take me too serious as this thread wasn't really supposed to be serious)

    Way ahead of you there, buddy. My signature links to other posts I've made... which have my signature. I see your *cough* "recursion" *cough* and raise you a directed graph with multiple cyclic relationships. :p
