Pulling out the last element is done only ONE time. *Calculate* the index of the last element, (it's relative to the size of the list), then GET it out of the list and add it to your StringBuilder. Then add the last part of the string to the StringBuilder and you're done. Only thing left to do is display what's in the StringBuilder.

You might use that technique to monitor the progress of the adding of Strings and remove the println statements later.
