Consider this C code:

#include <stdbool.h>
#include <stdio.h>

typedef long T;
bool find(T *array, size_t dim, T t) {
  int i;
  for (i = 0; i <= dim; i++);
     int v = array[i];
     if (v == t)
         return true;

There are several bugs in it. I've showed this to probably over 1000 
programmers, and nobody found all the bugs in it (they are obvious once pointed 
out). It is not easy to write bug free loop code, and find() is a trivial function.
