Stupid(ity)

Filed under: Uncategorized — srivenu @ 8:31 am

Longtime back i had read somewhere someone defining Stupidity as “Doing the same thing, over and over again, but expecting different results”. (I could not recollect where i had read it. I tried searching on the net and got many hits ranging from teenage pregnancy to Einstein’s definition of Insanity.)

First time i read that i couldn’t stop smiling. But i quickly realized i had been “A stupid many times over!”. Based on my observation of my coworkers at work, i can say with conviction, that many of them are too! How many times have we reexecuted the same command over and over, expecting it to work miraculously the second or the third or the “nth” time!

Now i try to cut down on my stupidity by going through the error message carefully before trying to reexecute a failed command.
