More quotes and a joke

In software, we rarely have meaningful requirements. Even if we do, the only measure of success that matters is whether our solution solves the customer’s shifting idea of what their problem is.
Jeff Atwood
Reader, suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you didn’t use version control. But I repeat myself.” 
Mark Twain
A man can never really know whether he isn't sitting in a madhouse. 
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg
A Foolish Consistency is the Hobgoblin of Little Minds 
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The joke

A mathematician and an engineer are sitting in on a string theory lecture. The engineer is struggling, while the mathematician is swimming along with no problem. Finally the engineer asks, "How do you do it? How do you visualize these 11-dimensional spaces?" The mathematician says, "It's easy: first I visualize an n-dimensional space, then I set n equal to 11."
