In c, checking memory allocation. In python, checking that sql queries succeeded. The point is there's always something that should _never_ fail in real life but I feel better with an explicit check on it. I figure the ease in coding makes up for telling people (not that it's a high probability of this happening) to not compile asserts out.

It just bugs me to no end how people try to make the easiest forms of error checking difficult.
