Only in Bristol would you turn a main street into a waterslide :idiot:

Clearly someone's been on the scrumpy again :drinking:

I know we're supposed to respect the dead, and we shouldn't stoop to using their tactics, but this is too funny:

"How is it that hardly any major religion has looked at science and concluded, 'This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said, grander, more subtle, more elegant. God must be even greater than we dreamed'? Instead they say, 'No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way.'" - Carl Sagan

"To doubt everything or to believe everything are two equally convenient solutions; both dispense with the necessity of reflection." - Henri Poincaré

There are two ways to play this, either you do what they want or what they ask for.

If you do the former, you try and get past the words they're using (pretty sure the project lady meant intersecting, not perpendicular).

If you do the latter, you go "well, I COULD draw 7 perpendicular lines, but I'd need 7 dimensional paper" and simply pass on the impossible requirement bucket.

It is a bit sad, really, because project management is a really important job that is far from trivial. The problem is how far you can get by just appearing to do the job and let everybody else pick up the pieces.

Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.

OK, now let's look at four dimensions on the blackboard.

English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."
