Threds: multiple call to run() method | Blinded by the lights

You can call run() method of a thread many times. However, not a single new thread will be started. This way JVM will only execute the code from run() method. And this will not probably be what you tried to achieve.

Remember: to start a new thread, you need to call start() method, which among others, will execute run() method in a new concurrent context.
