"Give a man a fish, feed him for a day

... Teach a QA person basic SQL, they'll not bother me for a lifetime". I hope.

I write s**t code... therefore I refactor

Or to be more precise, "I write s**t code the first time, therefore I refactor".

I find this admission of imperfection very liberating and a good way to explain to people why refactoring is important.

After all, can anyone honestly say that the first time they attempt anything, the result is a study in perfection? Or is it more likely a haphazard cludge of elements that just happen to achieve the desired result?
