This poll reminds me of "Don't try this at home".

I can think of a few others:

  • Just run this SQL on the live database
  • Shut down and restart - everything will be fine
  • apt-get upgrade
  • we can always restore from the backup

Or from history:

  • Charge! (Charge of the Light Brigade)
  • Captain, the swimming pool seems to be leaking. (Titanic)
  • That was a test run? (Chernobyl)

    • I can cross the tracks before that train,
    • I wanted to see if it [the lawn mower's blade] was turning.
    • What do you mean I can't smoke on home oxygen?
    • I thought it wasn't loaded.


    Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.
