The problem is that when people get told to cut a board to 1 meter and we get handed a .5 meter board we say "fuck you" the program on the other hand needs to be explicitly told how/when to say fuck you, and it needs that for basically every single possible source of error.

I for one applaud your use of the vulgar and am doing my best to upvote you mightily.
