Scotty: Captain! The stack canna handle the strain! It's gonna blow!
Spock: Switching to a segmented stack architecture and utilizing
first-class continuations may be our only hope.
McCoy: Dammit, you pointy-eared freak, who do you think you are?
Man was not meant to take control of the stack in his own
