I used to post occasional notes on Mathematica "gotchas" and even 
started building a collection of them on my HD -- given up on that, 
better things to do.

Then someone else started posting descriptions of similar encounters

any of those lately.

Looks like, whichever you'd like to call them, they still exist . . .
