Watching this was the best 7 1/2 minutes of my week. How many of us have been in this meeting?

    This video has hurt my feelings and I am experiencing cognitive disonance as a result of watching it. ;)

    Hello,

    I only see a piece of 12 seconds.
    What is the point of this?

    The video is about 7 1/2 minutes, at least for me. It is the dramatization of the predicament of an engineer who is surrounded by management and artistic people asking for impossible things in a project kick-off meeting.

    This might have been a Monty Python sketch!

    Reminds me of the "Turbo Encabulator" leaves me walking away thinking what was accomplished here and what was that all about?

    I forget when I first saw this, but it definitely reminded me of a couple of meetings I've been in.

    I've been looking for a used one for years. I think the government has confiscated them all, they never show up on eBay.

    I'm not big into this kind of stuff, but why is it always referred to as a "turbo" encabulator when the video always refers to it as a "retro" encabulator? Or am I not hearing it correctly?

    There's a couple of different versions of this, I just typed in "turbo encabulator " and this was the first one to pop up. I'd say keyword is "encabulator"
