*Draw all the lines in different dimensions with ink that starts off first being either green or transparent and later on changing to red. I can see how you can get three perpendicular lines (x,y,z) any corner of any room will suffice to draw those, but trying to get the fourth one (time) will be hard and 5th and 6th and 7th impossible. However the 2D projection of these perpendicular lines will be any vertice of this 7th dimensional shape.*
On the other hand if they misunderstood perpendicular only to mean that they intersect then 7 lines meeting at a point satisfy. These lines could even at once be parallel and intersect and terminate at a point; much like the lines of longitude on a spherical globe, are parallel at the equator and intersect at the poles. They would need to be drawn with transparent and or green ink which would later on changes to red through a chemical reaction.
Lines on a triangle (3 lines crossing each other) can be perpendicular (90 deg) to each other depending on the geometry; If you draw a great circle on the equator of a sphere and two other lines crossing each other at the poles, you get 3 straight lines (geodesic) perpendicular to each other.
So by induction you need a sphere in 7D in order to draw 7 straight lines all perpendicular to each other. not sure about the colors tho. ;)
This is too real. I've been in too many board meetings that involve over paid brain dead execs who come up with "ideas" that my IT department are supposed to magically make happen because technology is just a magic fix all. You know its bad though when you have to answer the why cant you do it? question with because its illegal. I'm never sure whats more concerning the illegal ideas or the literally impossible ones.
Ca s'applique aux mondes des SSII et ca peut aussi s'appliquer à la manière dont les gens te voient quand tu leur dit que tu es informaticien, ils croient que t'es à la fois magicien et personne-à-tout-faire....
The worst is when they ask you to do something that is possible but completely stupid, redundant, and a waste of time.
Them: "We see our competition uses blue lines and they get increased sales. Can we draw blue lines?"
Expert: "Well, sure, but we need to change our background so they can be seen since our background is currently blue."
Them: "Well, we need the blue background because our customers like blue"
Expert: "Well, maybe we could do a lighter shade of blue"
Them: "No, we need this exact blue"
Expert: *gun click*
Use transparent and green ink from substances which as soon as they get oxidized they become red.
Design the perpendicularity in a 7-dimensional conceptual reference system and call it done.

This should be mandatory viewing for all college grads and anyone entering the workforce. Doing the job is more about manipulating and mind-reading people than it is about actually following what they say. The words coming out of their mouths and the literal meaning associated with those words does not necessarily have a direct correlation with their actual intent. I was mind blown when I realized this.
*At the end, the guy realized what he should've done all along. Just say Yes to whatever nonsense that comes out of their mouth and do what is possible. If they don't agree with result, good luck with them seeking outside alternative.*
I faced extremely similar scenario.
Project Manager: "Show random responses, in a proper sequence"
Me: "random doesn't have any sequence"
Project Manager: "well they should be in a sequence"
Me: "then what about random-ness"
Project Manager: "Well they should be in a sequence, but every time the sequence changes"
Me: "Oh ok. Got you"
7 perpendicular lines are actually possible across 7 dimensions in a 7 dimension space! If geometry doesn't allow it, algebra certainly does. So here you go, your 7, though non-visual, perpendicular lines. You can even form planes with pairs of these lines which automatically make the other lines orthogonal to the planes created by these pairs.
Thank you. Truth is a funny thing. This skit is a concise purpose fit career descriptor for many of us. It certainly reflects "some clients" that have "contributed" to my 3-decade career as a Senior Information Security Consultant and as Partner at a security consultancy firm.
*_That. Client:_* "We've hit the wall with our problem. We flew you here, via overnight red-eye in a FedEx shipping box directly to our corporate HQ and are paying your company $1K an hour (of which you are paid out .01 on the dollar) because we are losing over 'X million dollars a minute.' And we have zero idea of who/what/where/why or how.
"Meanwhile, our priceless reputation and branding for 'reliability' are taking a beating on NASDAQ...if we don't stop the bleeding immediately we may never recover the shareholders or our market share.
"No one here has been able to solve this problem. You are a subject-matter expert in this obscure security technology.
"We admit that we are out of our depth. We throw ourselves on the tender mercies of your decades of experience in cybersecurity  and reputation for rapid incidence response solutions with positive event outcomes when faced with situations exactly like ours.
"We put our corporate future in your capable hands. Save us from this enterprise Armageddon.
"Please tell us what must be done."
*_My Immediate Debriefing Response:_* "Certainly. First, we---"
*_That. Client:_* "Nope. Nopety, nope, nope, nope...no. I disagree. We all disagree!
"Do not attempt to explain any solutions. (Client pokes fingers in ears) Lalalalalalala...but...fix it, fix it, fix it! -- Stop!
"Stop, don't touch anything!...and, in the name of all the that is holy above and is money below, have you not fixed our global network failure / financial armageddon / hyper-emergency disaster yet?"
 ~ or, Dear Reader, insert whatever your particular field is here....
Every....company...i...ever...worked...for. the amount of morons in charge and the bureaucratic BS that you need to cut through is enough to give your grandkids a migraine. Especially the sheer incompetence of the idiots in charge of you who get there my sucking up to the boss, not by being good at what they do.

Bricolajul a ajuns in Romania in urma cu aproximativ 10 ani, insa in Statele Unite si in statele occidentale acest concept este mai vechi, si isi are originile la inceputul anilor ’50. Bricolajul se refera la capacitatea oamenilor de a crea sau repara diverse obiecte fara a apela la ajutor specializat.
Primul catalog de bricolaj pentru renovarea locuintei a aparut in 1968. Acesta a nascut conceptul de bricolaj care sta la baza lanturilor de magazine din zilele noastre. De la covoare si perdele, pana la mobilier si prefabricate, bricolajul se refera la tot ce inseamna renovarea unei locuinte in aceasta acceptiune.
Pe orlo.ro gasesti toate cataloagele de bricolaj, de la cei mai importanti comercianti. Catalog Dedeman, Catalog Praktiker, Catalog Baumax, Catalog Bricostore, Catalog Ambient si altii.
In Romania retelele de magazine pentru bricolaj sau extins rapid, cel mai important comerciant din acest segment este Dedeman, care a pornit din orasul Bacau si a ajuns sa detina magazine in cele mai importante orase din tara.
