This was too precious to skip!

Me: This one is for you dude, from mythical man month;

The surgical team: Much as a surgical team during surgery is led by one surgeon performing the most critical work, while directing the team to assist with less critical parts, it seems reasonable to have a "good" programmer develop critical system components while the rest of a team provides what is needed at the right time. Additionally, Brooks muses that "good" programmers are generally five to ten times as productive as mediocre ones.

Dude: Haha brilliant, of course in some cases the rest of the team are up to their own random shenanigans... sawing off legs and poking at vital organs indiscriminately.
