Stump The Tech

Yesterday, while playing World of Warcraft, the game developed an odd bug which caused me to contact game support. I was contacted by a GM who took a look at the problem. He led me through the routine quick fixes which didn't work and then we got down to the more extreme measures - which also didn't work. It got to the point where he just typed the line "Okay, now that is just weird." I had to laugh. I have this ability to find the weirdest bugs in programs. When I was working in graphics, I stumped an SGI tech and caused him to crash his computer. Eventually, the WoW error was fixed and I could go back to playing but I couldn't help thinking I should get a job as a tester. Sit me in a room with a computer running whatever program and by not doing anything out of the ordinary, I will find those obscure bugs. Anyone hiring?
