Every STEM worker, especially the engineers, will understand this video. Dodgy

Yep, that's how most meetings seem to go.

That was hilarious. It reminds me of when a colleague of mine had to explain to another chemist, who was in management, on why petroleum ether can't form explosive peroxides.

RE: Yeah, I've been in that meeting.
Holy crap, that was every week at my phone company. I loved figuring out the puzzles ... but a few of the people ... just baffling. Some never did figure out why, toward the end of meetings, I'd just sit there and laugh.

I'd send them this video but ... meh, I'd have to explain it. Dodgy

Honestly, I think anyone who's worked with idiots on some level can relate to that meeting...

The total disconnect from what sounds brilliant in the management's head with reality.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces
