the beautiful thing about electrical engineering is that in spite of physics doing weird shit and components generally not being entirely reliable, most circuits end up being far more reliable than you'd expect

the beautiful thing about computer programming is that in spite of the availability of tools to improve reliability and find error cases, and entire systems built on top of even the most poorly conforming devices (almost always due to firmware and drivers, mind you) to try and lay the tracks for you so you don't have to worry about those problems, it's an everyday occurrence for software to go off the rails for most people
