I believe what we have here again is another instantaneous localized inverse micro-singularity tear in the fabric of our space time continuum that critically cascaded into a parallel dimension of anti-reality when executives, management, sales, marketing, and other dense objects had a simultaneous group think on project requirements. Maybe next time they will think to ask engineering to these meetings.

Law of thermodynamics has shown us that everything wants to go to a higher energy state in turn causing decay and instability." CEO -"English Please." A Different Random Engineer -"You sure chief?
