That the Falcon 9 delivers the payload to its appointed orbit through rain, sleet, wind, and dark of night. That neither fire nor explosion will divert it from its task. A Falcon rocket canít be stopped, canít be reasoned with. It takes horrendous damage without flinching and just recomputes the optimal strategy to carry out its mission. It isnít like other rockets that disintegrate when they get hit with styrofoam or blow up when their rubber O-rings get the shivers. It never falters. It never stands down. It doesnít feel pain. It doesnít know fear, and it doesnít feel remorse as it drives its competitors into bankruptcy

That was really asinine.
