Land rush

I have a workplace running gag with a friend at a client wherein when we encounter a Rails misfeature (especially the ones that have been solved carefully and elegantly in Java or elsewhere), we rip on Rails mercilessly to make ourselves feel better. My friend came up with this one almost unprovoked, I thought it eminently bloggable:

"It's like the land rush. We are all so excited about the free land that we forgot about all the bears and Indians waiting to kill us."
