Christoph Küstler I agree - its like they know how it is to be me - and I am not even an expert, just closely observant.

I would like to laugh, but I can't. Because this is not a comedy. It is reality.

It is possible to draw a triangle with three 90-degree angles in it. Connect the north pole with the point where the Greenwich Meridian intersects the Equator. Connect that point with the point that is at 90 degrees West on the Equator. Connect that point with the North Pole. From the point of view of someone who can walk only shortest distances along the Earth's surface, this is a triangle, and at all three vertices you have 90-degree angles. Of course, the point of view that makes this true makes a lot of other things extremely WEIRD, such as the fact that when you are standing at the North Pole the triangle's edge opposite your vertex is clearly a quarter-arc of a circle that morphs as you walk south along either other edge of the triangle, until, when you reach one of the vertexes on the Equator, the edge of the triangle that had been a quarter-arc of a circle is now a straight line-segment while the side opposite the vertex where you stand has deformed until it is now no longer a straight line-segment but a quarter-arc of a circle. But nothing is wrong if you are not uncomfortable with shapes changing as you walk around and with aircraft whose maximum speed increases if they are further from you -- three identical airplanes, each starting at one vertex of this triangle and flying AT TOP SPEED along an edge to the next vertex, will all complete their journeys at the same time even though the one flying away from you and the one flying toward you only had to go x kilometers while the one flying between the two vertices far from you travels (x*(Pi/2)) kilometers (as measured by you from where you stand) in the same time using an engine of identical power. That said, the idiot in the conference-room is drawing lines in a Euclidean two-dimensional plane where none of the above rules apply, so she is stupid as stupid can be if she thinks there's seven lines (or only three lines) and they're all perpendicular. Welcome to the business-world.

This video is every job I've held since age 23. The people who get promoted are social adepts who have no concept of math or physics or the way language (either math-symbols or English) works. They have reached the tier they've reached only by convincing someone equally idiotic but higher up that they both know what they're talking about when neither of them does. And they always want the latest "concept" that everyone else in the industry thinks is sexy and glamorous, even if it can't actually be rendered in language that isn't nonsensical. If you really know about how data models the exterior world, and you try to talk to these idiots who can't actually DO anything mathematical or analytical, but want power over the people who do because it's "high end" or "cutting edge", (i.e. prestigious, like business-people's clothing which in some places I've been forced to wear) you will only drive yourself over the edge of insanity. I don't know when I fell over that threshold, but it was years ago. In every country in the world, these are the people who run the economy, and it is scary. Look at the economic meltdowns that occur every few years. I am not saying that we should fear that we will lose everything. Rather, we should fear that we aren't attaining a level of universal prosperity that would easily be within our grasp if only the economy were run by rational people with an outlook more technically-oriented and less socially-oriented.

It's 2018 y'all. Just draw 7 parallel red lines and tell them they self-identify as 7 red lines, all perpendicular, some with green ink, some with transparent, and one in a form of a kitten.

You CAN construct 7 perpendicular lines - in 7-space. Recall Hilbert's admonition regarding points, lines and planes...

I like how they named the expert Anderson. Probably a nod to Mr. Anderson (Neo) in the Matrix. **Bonus points awarded if you read "Mr. Anderson" in agent Smith's voice.**

This is the point where the expert should ask, "Why do you want it this way?" Then the client usually gives an answer that tells the expert what they really want and then he can help them achieve their real goal instead of putting tons of resourses into something the client only thought they wanted. Here's an example, "Why do you want some of the lines to be drawn with green and some with transparent ink?" "Well, because we've found that our customers like things that are green and transparent." "Drawing red lines with green and transparent ink would be really difficult and we would waste a lot of resources trying to achieve such a goal. Might I recommend having all of the red lines drawn with red ink and then add some green lines to be drawn with green ink and some transparent lines to be drawn with transparent ink." "Ok, that sound sounds perfectly reasonable." Asking, "Why," doesn't always work out like this, but when it does it saves a lot of stress and resourses

This group should do a movie on IT interviews if they haven't already, In my experience interfacing senior managers and entrepreneurs is pretty down pat, I think the IT interviews would be pretty funny as well :)
