did you know that most of the well known artists like Mozart etc, spent incredibly little time to create immortal master pieces?

My understanding is that this is actually an urban myth (Here's a Guardian article[^] that mentions this too)

If you can write code that works first time, no fixes, forever and ever then I take my hat off to you. You've either put in a lot of work to get to this point or you're incredibly lucky. It's usually the former.

What I was after wasn't the code that took the least effort to write. I was after the code you wrote with the least *thinking* and that you know, deep down, is just wrong, but you do it anyway. Like eating a doughnut: so wrong, but so easy.
