fun pathological atom situation
(def a (atom 0))
(def f1 (future
(while (< @a 1000000000)
(swap! a inc))
(println "Done incrementing!")))
(def f2 (future
(swap! a (fn [current-val]
(println "Trying...`a' is" current-val)
(Thread/sleep 10) ; actually usually works without this, just from the delay println introduces
(println "Successfully reset!")))
