Possibly the best error message ever

"Could not determine the type on the left side of the dot"

Dave Donaldson inadvertently demonstrated this VS.NET error message  last night while giving a demo of VSTS.

How, you ask?  In his own words:

Keep in mind that “Generate Method Stub“ can only be used on methods; it cannot be used to generate classes. If you try to generate a class from a unit test using “Generate Method Stub“, you get this hilarious error: “Could not determine the type on the left side of the dot“.
