Why Fail-fast is a really good idea most of the time

We’re in the middle of drawing. Everything is going fine, we’ve drawn most of the screen. We have a stock ticker symbol, a recent quote, we even drew the word “BUY” but oops we ran out of memory. No worries, it’ll be fine. We’re pros, we can continue without crashing, we’ll just draw the word “DON’T” in a few minutes when memory is back. What could possibly go wrong?
