That's a frankly laughable misreading of the Java story. The Java story is that they wanted everyone to use checked exceptions, but the users loathed them so much that they found hacks to get around the checked exception system, from subclassing `RuntimeException` or `Error` to labeling everything `throws Exception`. This is hardly a shining model of good language design.
