Hey, thanks!

Here's another one:

Here the pony is spitting floats at her own source code.  She can glitch 
herself and trigger automated behavior like firing in an endless loop.

I just went ahead and disabled zero-logical-time recursive loops for the 
canvas forwardmess method responsible for sending the float the pony 
spits to an object.  Forwarding a message like that is already obscure.  
I figure if someone really needs to use recursion on top of something 
like that it's probably time to start looking for a solution outside of 
a visual dataflow environment.
