Myself, I never considered to be anywhere in the neighbourhood of realism. Not by a magnitude or two. But when you meet the fanboys, you often wish you had a checklist to point to, displaying 24 main reasons why the project is completely unrealistic, each of the 24 points certified by an internationally recognized expert.
Okay, okay, I know: Internationally recognized experts don't have a clue when you try to defend your own job in the coal or oil industry; then the experts are just talking bullshit. If you are working with Ovibos moschatus[^], you do not want that work to be turned down, either. But a list of 24 well argued objections would be welcome.

I was reading Griff post about ice age asteroid got to the BBC web site, a pop up told Terry Jones, Actor,writer,comedian,film director,presenter,poet,historian & author has died A member of Monty Python, always funny when interviewed and I'm told a really nice guy! A friend managed to run over his toe at LAX airport!
is that mean to be
- as in Engineer the Community (mass murderers, poison gass)
- or Engineer for the Community (umm, can fix my toilet?) ??
after many otherwise intelligent sounding suggestions that achieved nothing the nice folks at Technet said the only solution was to low level format my hard disk then reinstall my signature. Sadly, this still didn't fix the issue!
I read it as something akin to social engineering. Like Griff with his irrelevant daily posts that give all of us a chuckle (or a groan) to improve the place, although a little dusting wouldn't hurt either.
Or it's something like the strange choice management made when they renamed the support desk here. It is now called 'client engineering', which raises a very interesting question. What sort of clients are we building and can we tweak the formula a little to make them a bit smarter?
