11. Too Much Of A Good Thing (TM): Go wild with encapsulation and OO. For example:

    myPanel.add( getMyButton() );
    private JButton getMyButton( )
        return myButton;

That one probably did not even seem funny. Don't worry. It will some day.

It's a bird!

It's a plane!

It's a jet plane!

It's a Blue Angel doing barrel rolls over your house!

It's an entire football stadium screaming in your ear!

Oh, no, it's just a Geforce FX.

It's not *that* loud. Only 77db.

Things Rated at 80db:

Small car
Vacuum cleaner
Busy city street
Average factory

See? And it's 3 decibels *quieter* than an average factory! Not bad at *all*.
