#319: Engineering Hubris

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.
