Wonderful Douglas Adams Quote

Over the past week I’ve been reading Nate Silver’s book, “The Signal and the Noise, Why So Many Predictions Fail, but Some Don’t“.  Early on, he includes this completely on-point quote that he attributes to the great author Douglas Adams:

“The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that can not possibly go wrong is that when a thing that can not possibly go wrong goes wrong it usually turns out to be impossible to get at or repair”.

I dedicate this post to my friends at One Ashburton Place.
