Since this is my last post of the day I had to find something amusing and genius in the same respect. I believe some of you may say this is just a boneheaded move, but I look at it from the perspective that maybe their boss told them to get the task done and they were creative.

I found this video entertaining and also surprising. It isn’t very long but it is important to note how silly people can be in not realizing what they are working with. Maybe more training is in order.
