comment Does Object Oriented Programming Really Model The Real World?
It's vaguely defined (and involving the coordination of many systems) to get up and go to the restroom, but you would buckle under managing that complexity every time you need it. Nevermind the fact that the actuators are an implementation detail that is subject to change, while the intent rarely is.

It's a weird feeling when you see such a compelling case made for something you still disagree with. I get the motivation for the quote, and it would be hard to word it better. I just don't know that it's a mistake to model our problems in the same way that our symbolic, relationship-oriented thought processes do.

comment How to approach functional tests in segregated systems
I see what you're saying. Personally, I think I would avoid fire-and-forget with a payment system. It seems at first glance like two new tests are needed. First, that the payment system checks to see if errors were thrown in processing, and second, that the other system it is coordinating with always raises an alarm when it can't perform it's work. Then, you have two systems that you can individual test.
