Why put off till tomorrow that which can be done today?
OMG!!! You are right! And the examples you gave are unmistakable signs of a piss poor QA department!
N-n-no we do-do-don't.
If you are simulating A universe, rather than THE universe, then you can make up any "physical laws" that you want.
For all we know, the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle was created by a software programmer as a simplifying mechanism for the simulated universe he was creating and in which we exist.
The above comments only make sense, of course, if it is possible to be AWARE while existing inside somebody's computer simulation.
After that stutter, you might want to seek professional help...

The final proof will be that the question, when found, will be answerable by "42".
Have you fed your mice today?
>>After that stutter, you might want to seek professional help...
You mean a better programmer?
Our universe is an upside down chinese hat on a trampoline - that you can shape with your thoughts!
QA just finds the bugs, if product management doesn’t want to fix em that ain’t our fault.
1. LDA #BS
2. GOTO 1
Where can I get the cheat codes?
In particular, it's proof we're living in a type of simulation called a cartoon. A very, very sad and depressing cartoon.
Thank you. It’s downright sad; I suppose almost every advance in science was dismissed at the time as total garbage, navel gazing, etc., by some, who were poorly educated, and by some who had no such excuse — until it produced something those skeptics found personally useful or beneficial... Just a tragic lack of intellectual curiosity and flexibility, if you ask me.
LOL, it, the universe, is just crazy enough that might be true. Thanks for the original, and very amusing, thought. Cheers!
Academics looking for an alternate God/creationist theory.
The ACLU is missing in action as usual.
This is because of the same corrupt "entertainment" industry that insists only liberal activists are eligible for "spoken word" Grammies (Michelle Obama is up for 2 this year, just as her husband "won" them in 2006 and 2008).
Chart success is determined by a mix of tracked sales in big box stores combined with heavy radio airplay in certain tracked markets.
Regional hits don't exist in the "real" charts anymore. You may see some talented names on the "South Ecuadorean Traditional Neo-Funk Accoustic Blues" chart but the subcategories are so sliced and diced as to become irrelevant (it's all about milking them for ad revenue in Billboard).
A decade ago, a British philosopher put forth the notion that the universe we live in might in fact be a computer simulation run by our descendants.By a weird coincidence, the first "Matrix" movie had come out a few years earlier -- all part of the simulation, as it turns out.
