This is complex for no good reason. 
You don't have to show off. 
Less is more.
This is not me showing off. It's a complex problem and thus warrants a complex solution.
You can accomplish this same thing with a single while loop.
My solution works just as well. You know I really worked hard on this. :(

Good point. That would be cleaner and remove some of the complexity. 
Let me rework this.

Well, there has to be a simpler approach than this!

Why didn't you just make the function's argument optional and set it to a default value?
Oh wow, that's pretty cool! We don't have that option in Java. 
I'll make this change and read a bit more about it as well.
