    Another effective technique is to explain your code to
    someone else. This will often cause you to explain the bug to
    yourself. Sometimes it takes no more than a few sentences,
    followed by an embarrassed “Never mind, I see what's wrong.
    Sorry to bother you.” This works remarkably well; you can
    even use non-programmers as listeners. One university
    computer center kept a teddy bear near the help desk.
    Students with mysterious bugs were required to explain them
    to the bear before they could speak to a human counselor.
