memory smash

memory smash: [XEROX PARC] n. Writing through a pointer that
   doesn't point to what you think it does.  This occasionally reduces
   your machine to a rubble of bits.  Note that this is subtly
   different from (and more general than) related terms such as a
   memory leak or fandango on core because it doesn't imply
   an allocation error or overrun condition.
