I could probably fill a whole month of those, single-handedly...

Although ... I've found most people here are terrified of the whole
concept, and although a lot of them claim to subscribe to "fail fast,
fail often", what they actually believe is:

 "Yeah! But when you say 'fail', you don't actually mean 'FAIL", you
mean just, you know, EXPERIMENT?

 and ... um ... don't do it OFTEN, just do it like ... once? Maybe?
... and ... yeah, no failing, really. Because failure is bad.".

Might be difficult to find speakers who embrace the idea fully?
