This method explicitly invokes an object's
finalize method. Because finalizer methods are supposed to be executed once, and only by the JVM's internal code, this is a bad idea.
If a connected set of objects is currently being finalized, there is a chance that the
finalize method of all such objects could be called at the same time by the JVM over multiple threads. If the
finalize method were to be invoked on such a connected object at the same time as its
finalize method was called by the JVM, it could cause a virtually impossible to diagnose race condition.
