An engineer, a system's analyst, and a programmer were on their way to a tech conference on the other side of the mountains. Half way down the other side, the brakes gave out, and the engineer steered for all his life to keep the car from going clean off the edge. It was at the last second, skidding sideways towards doom, that the car finally stopped. One tire dropped over the edge. The three sprang from the car, shaking and panting. The engineer was the first to speak. "We could have been killed! I would like to get under the car and see just what happened to those brakes. Something has to be fixed." The system's analyst agreed. "Yes, but I'd like to see the design blueprints. We could fix the problem with these cars with a little research." The programmer was scratching his head. "I wonder if that's repeatable."
