in reply to Barstool Trivia

I would just have said "start a block". Otherwise you have to worry about whether a bare block counts as a loop.

Anyway, I'll toss one in: eval on a string starts a new scope. I can think of at least one other one, but I don't want to be a spoil sport so I'll let someone else jump in.

As for the baseball thing, I know that I knew this at one time, and I'm sure there are either seven or eight ways to reach base, but I'm not sure which, and I can only think of seven. So if anyone out there knows that it's eight, please let me know so that I can rack my brains for a while.
