comment Is there any evidence that JS Bach, A Vivaldi and J Handel had perfect pitch?
Pitch is very important to a singer. Whether the singer had absolute pitch or not, she would quickly learn which towns to avoid because of the difficulty of reaching the high notes.

comment Is it possible to have "Perfect Tempo"
"Solo piano piece" ... that sounds right. Compare a solo piano piece to an orchestrated version of the same piece, or an orchestral piece to a piano transcription of it, and the performance of the piano version is almost always much more flexible in tempo.

comment Is it possible to have "Perfect Tempo"
There are plenty of pieces meant to be played exactly at a single tempo. Every parade march, for example. Judging from historic recordings I would say most dances, jazz pieces, ragtime, boogie-woogie and rock-and-roll.

By the time I finished my answer, Dursk had already posted his(/hers). Genes is just a simple list, so a deep copy is not required.

comment How are timeouts handled in JUnit?
From the "Core Java" book: "You can kill a thread by invoking its stop method. That method throws a ThreadDeath error object that kills the thread. however, the stop method is deprecated, and you should never call it in your own code." I don't know if that's how JUnit does it. It may use some JVM magic that most developers don't normally need to learn about.

comment How are timeouts handled in JUnit?
A thread can only be interrupted when it is blocked by a wait(), join(), sleep() or other blocking call. Your "thread.interrupt()" has no effect, so as you say, it has to be some other mechanism (which I don't know off the top of my head).

Do you have an electric alarm clock? Most likely it beeps at 60 beeps per minute. Can you think of the sound right now?

You mean like Julie London in 1964? That's not production or mixing. That's a vocal technique. youtube.com/watch?v=DXg6UB9Qk0o
