Submission + - The Grand C++ Error Explosion Competition

An anonymous reader writes: Long, incomprehensible error messages are a daily occurrance in the life of a C++ developer. The Grand C++ Error Explosion Competition turns this annoyance into a challenge. The goal of the competition is to produce the largest possible error message with the shortest possible input source. Categories range from Anything Goes, which allows the use of external libraries, such as Boost, to Bare Hands, where every bit of code must be written by the submitter. The competition has been open for a few days and has already gathered some truly twisted entries. The deadline for submissions is 2014-01-18.
