Re: Funny circle of life moment

I remember reading a paper that included a statement in its summary along the lines of "I'm sure it is possible to write safety-critical software in C, in the same way it is possible to shell peas while wearing boxing gloves".

IIRC it came from a safety group within the NCB (National Coal Board), so not that recent.
