    here are some i heard from the cpsc lab, some are pretty much the same of what u posted.

    "it works, just the outputs are wrong"
    "WTF, this comp is fucked, let me log on to yours"
    "I knew it, this isnt possible"
    " hmmm, it doesnt compile... "
    " I dont see the error on this line, so you dont have one im sure, just take it out anyway, im sure that'll fix it"

    thats all i can think of right now..

    My main excuse is
    "What the fuck? This computer is fucked, let me use that one"
    and when it doesn't work on the other computer "It can't be my program, must be the program I'm using"
