MEME: slow and laborious; destroy thoughtlessly

“To build may have to be the slow and laborious task of years. To destroy can be the thoughtless act of a single day.”- Winston Churchill

I read this and thought of the bozo who tumbled that pile of rocks. 

Maybe I’m just a fat old white guy injineer and, while I don’t see the significance of that particular pile of rocks that got everyone upset, I do think one should think carefully about what one destroys.

Reminds me of “Reinke’s Rule of Negative Progress”!

(Namely you can screw up enough in one day that it can take weeks to fix. Keep backups and change control.)
