you can't extrapolate that to every process--particularly an assembly line type process that 's been honed over many many years is in no way comparable.

apples and oranges, dude--wishful thinking...all of the posts on this and all the other photographic websites are a testament to the unpredictability of the "process".
honestly...no happy accidents in industry...every great innovation in history has pretty much been through some accidental discovery...microwave, light bulb...
taking a honed process and extrapolating it to all other processes if foolishness. if you've ever had any experience in an industry which is weather dependent, you'll see just how unpredictable and uncontrollable things really are.
for example--the fire department....how about working in a hospital emergency room...how about electrical power utilities during a superstorm....
some industries are notoriously accident prone because the nature cannot be contolled--MINING for example--an ancient industrial process and it's still extremely dangerous due to all the things that cannot be controlled.
very very controllable? nothing left to chance?.....keep dreaming the dream
how many product recalls do we hear about in the news because they are public health threats--food poisioning...dangerous chemicals---design flaws that cause fires or sudden accelleration...battery explosions. All produced by industry which strives to have zero percent defects. How many more you DON'T hear about....only the public health hazards are the ones you hear about===there are many many more that aren't publicized.
these things are all around us --- OPEN YOUR EYES AND EARS to the world around you and SEE what's REALLY going on here.
Just buy a russian camera....you'll see
