> As a general rule, code should never catch Throwable or Error, only Exception.
> Sometimes it is necessary to catch more than just Exception, but if so, the code must
be careful to rethrow certain errors, e.g.
> ThreadDeath
> VirtualMachineError
> There may be some others
> If the throwable is not logged, then it's vital to ensure that only the appropriate ones
are swallowed.
> But it is better to be explicit and only catch errors which are safe to handle.
