When you post a self-answered knowledge-base style StackOverflow post, and then someone else posts a totally wrong answer.

This one is for +Ron Amadeo and his earlier https://plus.google.com/u/0/+RonAmadeo/posts/hXfhC6CTf7Z. It's literally #pixelpushing .
Off by a pixel. About a month ago I was tagged by Ron Amadeo who spotted an off-by-a-pixel misalignment in some of the content rows in the Play Store app. This is the story of that extra pixel – as illustrated above with zoomed in portion in the inset showing that the last card in the row is by ...

All splash screens suck. Especially this one.

Don't follow Google's example in any of your apps. These screens don't make any sense no matter how "well" they're implemented. Just make your UI load fast and then load content into it. 

Splash screens are an idiotic idea especially on Android where apps are never really killed by users (or should not be). The app runs in the background until the OS decides it's not needed anymore. This should all be transparent to users but introducing a splash screen makes the app launch differently different times. Sometimes the app just appears and sometimes user is forced to stare at the splash.

Don't do what Google does!

Lost order. Took over 30 minutes to get it after asking about it. Pretty good food, but not worth the wait and poor experience.
