    As much is I agree with this, you shouldn't spend 2 month on a variable name either.

    Boss: Why haven’t you finished that god damn project I asked you to do 5 months ago??!!

    Me: Sorry Sir, I‘m trying to write clean code. I made a list of names for this variable here, but I‘m still not quite sure what name to pick yet. What if I picked the wrong one and my variable gets bullied by the others ??
