    Write really, really good tests if you can. Write OK ones if that is all you can do. If you can’t do anything else, at least write some tests that exercise your code, even just a little bit.

    A fourth strategy is the Fool’s Defense: you signal your inability to perform a task in the hopes that someone else will then take care of it for you.
    Note: How many devs are using Fool's Defense to weasel out of front end work? :)

    I did have to put a rubber duck on my right speaker to signal George when not to ask me what I thought about buying some katanas or how many Twizzlers a bear could eat, but that was a solvable problem.
    Note: Hah, rubber duck as busy signal. Love it.

    The deeper that sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain. Is not the cup that holds your wine the very cup that was burned in the potter’s oven? And is not the lute that soothes your spirit, the very wood that was hollowed with knives? When you are joyous, look deep into your heart and you shall find it is only that which has given you sorrow that is giving you joy. When you are sorrowful look again in your heart and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.

    “All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible.” —T.
