       4:         // do something and return something
       5:         return result;
       6:     })
       7:     .ContinueWith(res => {
       8:         // res is of type MyCustomObject here
       9:         res.DoSomethingElse();
      10:     });
       1: var someInput = ...
       2: var task = new Task(() => MyAction(input));
       3: // Changes to someInput will still be reflected within MyAction()!
       4: task.Start();
       5: Assert.That(myTask.Result.GetType(),       /* waits for execution of task */
       6:             Is.EqualTo(typeof(double)));   /* returns true */
