Is the universe producing better idiots ?

software-problemsThe quote-of-the-day widget in the sidebar of the blog came up with this one today…

Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning

I really liked that one. That’s really how I feel sometimes trying to make software that anticipate all the obscenely stupid things some users not only might do but will do…and then, of course, blame the software for allowing them to be idiots. It’s like the people that microwaves the cat and the sues the manufacturer because they didn’t explicitly state in the instructions that you shouldn’t do that.
