You guys may have heard of mathematical induction, but...

...have you ever heard of engineering induction?  If it works 3 times, it will always work.

It's still must stronger than computer science induction: if it works once, it will work all the time.  If it doesn't work all the time, it's the users fault.


"In the real world, this would be a problem.  But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist.  So we'll go ahead and do that now..."
