Nobody will do that

Some humans would do anything to see if it was possible. If you put a large switch in a cave somewhere, with a sign saying ‘End-of-the-World Switch. PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH’, the paint wouldn’t even have time to dry.

— Terry Pratchett, Thief of Time

I’ll print out this quote so I can point to it when I’m discussing edge cases and someone tells me “nobody will do that” or “it will never happen.” Famous last words.
