I feel for Anderson, as a developer I've been in similar non-sensical meetings.

Author — Adam Nicholls


A project manager is the sort of person that thinks, 3 women can produce one baby in 3 months

Author — CptObvious


I wonder what would happen to this company if this guy quits

Author — Nicholas Lau


This is painful to watch. Especially if you're a real life Anderson.

75% is also 75 / 100 which means they can produce 75 prototypes and when he's done we can ship the other 25. Its much more efficient than shipping only 3!

This scenario happened exactly 3 hours ago in our project meeting

Author — Kapitan Blue


What I don't understand is why 90 degrees was the bottom value tested for right angles. I believe an 81 degree right angle would be better. It is 10% more efficient than a 90 degree right angle, and so we could expect it to work perfectly 9 out of 10 times.

Alternatively, the right angle problem would have been resolved using a straight angle. R&D should look into developing straight angles. As we all know, in theory, straight angles are ambidextrous, so using them would allow them to be used for both right angle and left angle applications.

It would be funny if it wasn't so true. I invariably find myself working for ass-holes who not only don't understand the technological issues - they just don't WANT to. So they believe whatever is convenient and then blame the "experts" for the consequences of their uninformed decisions.

I feel like I missed the "Design me a pie chart to show 114%" episode. I can just see how it would have gone down. "Anderson, you seem fixated on circles with this pie-chart problem. You're the expert, I shouldn't have to be creative for you, but maybe you should try a square. Think outside the box a bit." Then, someone else, "Clearly if he can't show 114% with his circle, then he needs a bigger circle. I'm not saying I understand everything Anderson does, but this is obvious. If you need more, make it bigger."

I do technical stuff that are hard to explain to laypeople in any kind of comprehensive way without explaining like 10 different technologies. Sometimes I have similarly frustrating meetings and interactions at work. I often show these skits to friends and family to explain what those are like for me. I'd gladly support a patreon or whatever to keep these coming!

Brilliant writing, brilliant acting. He has the perfect WTF face, someone should make a meme out of it. LoL

Author — lestersys


As much as I love these videos, they make me really angry :D keep it up!

Author — Ultimate Pixel


Before it was funny. Now I'm just conflicted on whether I should give Anderson a hug or just punch everyone else.

Author — Joseph Douglas


He's decided to use the right angle for the square project, and he's getting Anderson to remove any pesky left angles,  but he forget to tell Anderson to make sure the lines in the right angle run parallel to each other. ^_^

I hope he quits, goes to an interview and gets the exact same treatment. That would be a bummer

Author — VannTile Ianito


Just like in real life then. 10 office crawlers in suits bragging away with the results left for one single worker to sort out months in advance of the regular predetermined schedule.

Author — Peter Liljebladh


Squares on wall paper, squares on shirts, on ties, on drinking glasses, out in the hall there are squares everywhere in this video! are you trying to brainwash us? lol
Seriously love this series!!

I feel like Anderson is going to shoot them all one day XD
