Discussion on: Explain why developers are bad at testing their work, like I am five

Testing is hard
Time is limited
Breaking your code is as hard as writing your code
No one likes to do things twice

Its impossible to figure out how my code will break, where and under what circumstances
I can test as much as is possible using good tools and a little prior experience
Its good to scope out a good hiding place before your mistake brings down the app (that is totally a joke)
