Hi Lauris, I wonder if I may use your footage for my English-teaching mobile application? I need kust video without sound. What are the terms and conditions? Can you let me know, please: email@example.com
In my life there's just one more terrible thing than these "expert meeting" situations. It is having almost perfect memory. Ordinarily, people remember so little and they don't even realize it. It's hell for me. It's like living with an Alzheimer patient, except the whole world has Alzheimer and you don't. If you tell them week later that we agreed on this and that (verbatim exactly what they've said), they look at you like you're trying to trick them.. they didn't agree to that as far as they remember! It's the same look you see in documentaries about Alzheimer patients. Who moved these keys from here to there?! Is someone playing tricks on me?! Oh, it was me you say? Impossible! It would be half that bad to just suffer their forgetfulness (something you could get used to), but the worst half is they go ballistic/paranoid aggression on you for remembering what they can't. They simply don't believe you and as an evidence they ask other people around (who also do forget) to confirm that they didn't say it. And sadly... they do confirm it. So in the end you look like a crazy person, who's making things up (lying) and also trying to trick others intentionally. Of course you learn to not tell. But what can you do, if you superior asks you to do a thing, you do it in a week exactly as specified and by that time your superior remembers he told you something else entirely (it changed in his brain to what he needs now, but he remembers it as if he told me this originally week earlier). You have to tell then to explain why you did what you did and then it goes mental. Luckily you can ask people to send you a mail that lists and confirms all we agreed and this solved work issues mostly.
This brilliant video shows exactly what the problem of 'management' is. The Harvard Business School - which years ago promoted the idea of swarm intelligence - should have a link from their website to this video so that their students can discuss this farcical management structure and method.
Well seven lines can be perpendicular to each other if they are drawn in every dimension.
So yes its possible.
And red ink can be mixed with green and blue still being red.
And transparency is letting every light form through thereby its red aswell!
Gotcha the expert should be fired.
Ye-essss.... It is possible. the research into a accesing higher dimensions alone would require a budget in the billions. I could produce some estimates... As for the green lines becoming red... Another few billion in Near light travel. You'll have your logo. Most expensive sculpture in history.
this 2019, my iq is minus 4 since then..aargh..for all this years i believe red ink will produce red whatever, it turns out its blue!! this is conspiracy all public school is brainwashing institution that force us to be fish so we can climb a god damn tree..
In the Marine Corps the OIC and Top would have similar meetings and demands. We nod, and went and did whatever the farck we needed to do to get the job done. Otherwise you would spend half the day playing what if games and arguing about who's idea was best.
Are used to do commercials, (that nobody would remember now but anyway) for that company I did at least 80 national commercials, that's right 80. The company was very down to earth and smart, however the people that came in let's say Kraft for example or Coca-Cola. Where exactly like these people in this video, they would be on set asking me the actor things like can you say two lines at the same time. I'm not kidding folks. So I literally just learn to talk really fast. Everyone was happy with the obnoxious request from the lady who requested two lines at the same time but she was not. And I laugh now and I am not exaggerating when I say I had to actually explain to her that it's impossible for any human to say to completely different lines of dialogue at the same time. But because this was early on in the campaign, everyone did not want to upset this outside vendor so we pretended to try. I've never fought back tears so hard after someone had called action before in my life. From laughing of course. Sorry for the long story, my point is this video is right on point and hilarious.
I have, in my career as software developer, encountered many times commissions like this.
Clients that did not now what the wanted, let alone what they needed, with constantly changing perspectives.
And on the other side of the table accountmanagers that had totally no understanding of software development, not even what software is or can do, promising the impossible for an unreasonable low price.
Where I cannot blame the clients, as they were no experts, I despised those account managers and their lackeys totally.
They need a better expert. I can draw 3 perpendicular lines easily using a Z axis. They should have gotten someone like Grant Sanderson as their expert. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYO_jab_esuFRV4b17AJtAw ......I bet he could draw 7 perpendicular lines.
have you ever exp, your boss order you to finish ridiculously impossible task, plus it must be done that day, you already tell it will be impossible, but the boss just telling to get done it cuz tomorrow it will be use for meeting or something. You know its impossible but you dont have much choice but to get it done. That day you sacrifice everything, meals, drink, your free time and you dont even get to sleep. The next day after you barely finish it and without sleep or breakfast you goes to office to report the task. Your boss come and without so much care he said lightly to you "I got new job to you and its urgen" you instantly reply "but boss I just had done this task so what about it" and yet he said "oh, thats not really important right now, this one is more urgent"
Draw 3 lines, fold the paper. Now you have 3 perpendicular lines. Repeat. On one paper, make a dot at the origin, take away the paper while keeping marker in place. Then place origin of other paper under the marker. Now you have a line in time dimension, and 7 perpendicular lines. Use blue and invisible ink that oxides to red. Instead of using a marker, use a stamp with a kitten image on it and stamp out a line of it. Problem solve.
+Lauris Beinerts This was really well done. Unfortunately been there done that.
Not that I'm an expert but still.
Also, Youtube algorithm is really weird. Suggesting a 5 year old video...not that I'm complaining :)
Thank you. Will surely check the channel out.
Have a great day!
