biggest c++ contradiction

Good day,

Recently I've been reading a lengthy thread where people were
naming their favorite uglinesses of c++. Of course, multiple
inheritance popped up not once. As I was reading along I started
wondering if anyone would name something that I could agree with.
Surely nobody did and I had to think one out myself.

So, IMO, the biggest c++ contradiction that appears in every
c++ book you would care to name is the suggestion to use RAII 
and not to throw from destructors.

have a nice day,
