You'd almost think software testing didn't exist to pick up the bits the coder missed.

Then again the modern paradigm doesn't really consider proper testing to be a thing. And QA, what's that?

Safety languages are like safety scissors; a blunt tool handed to those incapable of dealing with the risky version, at the expense of much reduced ability and performance.

And it's not like the risky areas of ' unsafe' languages aren't well understood, it's always the same handful of basic errors.
