Biggest JRuby (Java) Lie

"Nearly impossible to crash runtime or VM" -From Nutter and Enebo's MountainWest RubyConf presentation.

This is not to take anything away from their achievement with 1.0. It's a Java application running nearly as fast as a c application. I am very curious to see if it's as compatible with horizontal scaling...
