Ran across this SO post: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/652788 and in the top answer was a complete gem. Apparently this guy would sporadically…

… exit from his chair to do a quick ten pushups. He explained this last one as “Compiler found error in code. This is punishment”

Damn, I should have thought about that years ago. If we all had to do pushups when we mess up we might even get better at this whole programming thing. Even if we didn’t improve at coding we would at least be more physically fit ;)
