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

Opinion:
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)
