Rails ActiveRecord by-pass validation

ActiveRecord is my favorite way to access a SQL database. It offers very useful validation inside of a model. But sometimes you just want to save an attribute quickly, without validating the whole object. For that you can pass a parameter to the save method.

object.save(:validate => false)

That saved me a lot of time. Awesome!
