The three hardest problems in computer science:

- Doing lots of things at the same time *but still in the correct sequence*

- Doing slow calculations no more often than necessary, but also no *less* often than necessary

- Quotation

I'm seriously going to put this in my intro lecture for this term

we don't really cover quotation but we for sure hit the other two

... mixing up malloc boundary tags with payload data could be considered a quotation problem if you squint right, huh
