It is or it isn't...

If you ever get confused about anything involving engineering, this quote
from the Air Force is a great guide to solving all engineering problems.
Make sure your speakers are on. Note: This is an actual quote from an Air
Force training tape on how guided missiles locate themselves and get to the
target.

Simply amazing, who knew it was this simple?

Re: It is or it isn't...

Yeah, it's an engineer trying to dumb down terminology, and doing an awful job. Sometimes you have to know the lingo to talk about a subject.

His press conferences are the best out there.
