[TRIVIAL] the thread becomes dead after we get the value. also we can pass a timeout value to Thread#join and try to join afterwards
t = Thread.new { sleep 5; puts 1 }
puts "status: #{t.status} on #{t.inspect}"
t.join(1)
puts "status: #{t.status} on #{t.inspect}"
t.join(1)
puts "status: #{t.status} on #{t.inspect}"
t.join(1)
puts "status: #{t.status} on #{t.inspect}"
t.join(1)
puts "status: #{t.status} on #{t.inspect}"
t.join(1)
puts "status: #{t.status} on #{t.inspect}"
t.join(1)
puts "status: #{t.status} on #{t.inspect}"
