#319: Engineering Hubris
[[ Landscape in the background, canyon with a winding road ]]
Maybe engineering is the pursuit of an unattainable perfection.
Maybe it’s impossible to create something bug-free.
Maybe I’m a fool
Maybe the tyranny of Murphy is the penalty for hubris.
But I just can’t shake the feeling

With all those supplies
I could have caught that roadrunner.
