    A method's contract states "given the following inputs, I promise to return certain outputs and/or cause certain side-effects". It is the callers responsibility to ensure that the method's preconditions—the inputs it depends on—are met. It is the method's responsibility to ensure that its postconditions—those outputs and side-effects—are fulfilled.
