I've been in this meeting!

I've been in this meeting!  Friend, former colleague, and Idaho mogul-of-everything Doug S. passed this little gem along.  It's a perfect characterization of innumerable meetings I've participated in, wherein I was the only person present with any technical expertise, and all the other participants were trying to design a product.  It's entirely typical of these meetings that an apparently endless of unutterably stupid ideas are proposed.  They only stop when the engineer agrees to anything in order to make the pain of the meeting stop, or until the engineer runs screaming for the room to look for some alcohol or psychological therapy.

Whoever made this captured the essence of those meetings from the engineer's perspective absolutely perfectly.  Awesome!
