Hi Lauris, I wonder if I may use your footage for my English-teaching mobile application? I need kust video without sound. What are the terms and conditions? Can you let me know, please: [email protected]
The first time I watched this sketch I was fresh out of college and laughed because I believed this was an exaggeration. I legit had a client ask me to change the background of her site from light blue to dark blue but make it opaque so it wouldn't be dark...
OMG!...I've been in his seat before, sitting across the table from "professionals" who couldn't screw in a light bulb, but yet have insane ideas they feel you should be able to solve immediately. "Well, you're the expert" is constantly thrown in your face as a tool to bully you into their psychopathic idea. Then you end up telling them to go fuck themselves and then the next "expert" is now filling your seat.....welcome to the corporate world!!
There may actually be green and transparent inks that, after a chemical reaction with the medium or under certain lights (uv especially) will appear red, as for perpendicularity, in higher dimensions it might be possible, but I’m not clever enough to math out how high you’d have to go or imagine just what that might look like
Scratch that: even in 2d, it can be done with elliptic geometry
1) you explain how it works right now.
2) you explain that the suggestion can lead to the outmost catastrophy.
3) you come up with a solution that actually would work, but you explain that even tough it would work in this case it is not safe and might break other things, offcourse they do not care and go along with it.
Then they think you are being just very complicated. The people that deliver the solution are then being praised for there strong vision.
Usually they are not as interessted in any explanation of anything.
I've been on the opposite side as well, often, where you find yourself prying people's brains open for them, trying to guide their thoughts with baby steps with the goal to accept a slightly out of the box, yet challenging proposal. Very frustrating!
2 red 2 green 3 transparent thus the 3 transparent wouldn't be visible mute point. Little kitten drawn without picking up the pen still is a single line. Balloon animal. So possible? Yep. Still need a red pen. Lol
Shout out to all my fellow engineers who have to deal with these dumb pretentious "management" people who think dressing up nicely gives them a pass to going around telling people what to do. Talks useless bullshit all day and worst part is they think they are good at their job. That job my 8 year old cousin can do. I will sure move into management someday tho they get better pay.
I literally just had a meeting like this TODAY, me and a CAD guy struggled to explain that 2D line drawings of a product can not be rotated for a 3D view to the general manager of the company.
I swear these people, these meetings, they exist, they happen, they STILL happen, and this video should be mandatory viewing for everyone everywhere in the entire world.
In my life there's just one more terrible thing than these "expert meeting" situations. It is having almost perfect memory. Ordinarily, people remember so little and they don't even realize it. It's hell for me. It's like living with an Alzheimer patient, except the whole world has Alzheimer and you don't. If you tell them week later that we agreed on this and that (verbatim exactly what they've said), they look at you like you're trying to trick them.. they didn't agree to that as far as they remember! It's the same look you see in documentaries about Alzheimer patients. Who moved these keys from here to there?! Is someone playing tricks on me?! Oh, it was me you say? Impossible! It would be half that bad to just suffer their forgetfulness (something you could get used to), but the worst half is they go ballistic/paranoid aggression on you for remembering what they can't. They simply don't believe you and as an evidence they ask other people around (who also do forget) to confirm that they didn't say it. And sadly... they do confirm it. So in the end you look like a crazy person, who's making things up (lying) and also trying to trick others intentionally. Of course you learn to not tell. But what can you do, if you superior asks you to do a thing, you do it in a week exactly as specified and by that time your superior remembers he told you something else entirely (it changed in his brain to what he needs now, but he remembers it as if he told me this originally week earlier). You have to tell then to explain why you did what you did and then it goes mental. Luckily you can ask people to send you a mail that lists and confirms all we agreed and this solved work issues mostly.
This brilliant video shows exactly what the problem of 'management' is. The Harvard Business School - which years ago promoted the idea of swarm intelligence - should have a link from their website to this video so that their students can discuss this farcical management structure and method.
Well seven lines can be perpendicular to each other if they are drawn in every dimension.
So yes its possible.
And red ink can be mixed with green and blue still being red.
And transparency is letting every light form through thereby its red aswell!
Gotcha the expert should be fired.
Ye-essss.... It is possible. the research into a accesing higher dimensions alone would require a budget in the billions. I could produce some estimates... As for the green lines becoming red... Another few billion in Near light travel. You'll have your logo. Most expensive sculpture in history.
this 2019, my iq is minus 4 since then..aargh..for all this years i believe red ink will produce red whatever, it turns out its blue!! this is conspiracy all public school is brainwashing institution that force us to be fish so we can climb a god damn tree..
In the Marine Corps the OIC and Top would have similar meetings and demands. We nod, and went and did whatever the farck we needed to do to get the job done. Otherwise you would spend half the day playing what if games and arguing about who's idea was best.
Are used to do commercials, (that nobody would remember now but anyway) for that company I did at least 80 national commercials, that's right 80. The company was very down to earth and smart, however the people that came in let's say Kraft for example or Coca-Cola. Where exactly like these people in this video, they would be on set asking me the actor things like can you say two lines at the same time. I'm not kidding folks. So I literally just learn to talk really fast. Everyone was happy with the obnoxious request from the lady who requested two lines at the same time but she was not. And I laugh now and I am not exaggerating when I say I had to actually explain to her that it's impossible for any human to say to completely different lines of dialogue at the same time. But because this was early on in the campaign, everyone did not want to upset this outside vendor so we pretended to try. I've never fought back tears so hard after someone had called action before in my life. From laughing of course. Sorry for the long story, my point is this video is right on point and hilarious.
I have, in my career as software developer, encountered many times commissions like this.
Clients that did not now what the wanted, let alone what they needed, with constantly changing perspectives.
And on the other side of the table accountmanagers that had totally no understanding of software development, not even what software is or can do, promising the impossible for an unreasonable low price.
Where I cannot blame the clients, as they were no experts, I despised those account managers and their lackeys totally.
They need a better expert. I can draw 3 perpendicular lines easily using a Z axis. They should have gotten someone like Grant Sanderson as their expert. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYO_jab_esuFRV4b17AJtAw ......I bet he could draw 7 perpendicular lines.

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.
