Peanut Butter Sandwiches in Systems & Software Development
Rico Mariani has a good post on statements "so obvious as to be uninteresting." How often have you run across marketing blabber BS which fits this bill? How about poorly-worded requirements? (OK, so you XP fanatics will just refactor the requirement.)
Oh yeah, the rest of his post on performance analysis is pretty damned useful too.
But I still dig the peanut butter sandwich part.
