The best part: when the second lady starts to faintly grasp that perpendicularity has nothing to do with color, the other morons hold her back.

Just ignore it.

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.

After spending 45 years as an engineer interfacing with marketing, sales and the military, I can attest to the fact that this hits the nail on the head. People ask for ridiculous things while insisting that the cost and time frame for completion remain the same. In the meantime managers only want to hear "yes" regardless of how impossible the requests may be.

This happens a lot with us. The people above keep making decisions and they don't even know how to do what needs to be done hahaha and when we explain it to them the limitations and what we can achieve, they go like "it's impossible?". I dunno. This video is disturbing for me and kinda triggered some anxiety attacks

This is what happens when you hire a "businessman" and "managers" to accomplish the production of anything. Just because you can manage people doesn't mean you can produce anthing.

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

To draw 7 perpendicular lines you should get 7 dimensional world. When cross them in one point. To draw 7 red lines with green and transparent ink we can use several artificial languages in which green and transparent mean red in english.
