A physicist, an engineer, and a programmer were in a car driving over a steep alpine pass when the brakes failed. The car was accelerating faster and faster; they struggled to round curves while, once or twice, only a flexible crash-guard saved them from barreling down the side of the mountain. Positive they were all going to die, they suddenly spotted an escape lane. Safely pulled to a halt, a sigh of relief filled the car. Each looked to the other.
The physicist said, "We need to model the friction in the brake pads and the resultant temperature rise; maybe I can work out why they failed."
To which the engineer replied, "I think I've a few spanners in the back. I'll take a look; I may be able to work out what has gone wrong."
The programmer shook his head, asking, "Why don't we get going again — see if it's reproducible?"
"Profanity is the one language all programmers know best."
