Typed up from handwritten notes by: David Morgan-Mar

So I was doing this thing at work today (I can't talk about specifics because it's a company secret), and this person asked the question of whether a statement I'd made based on a theoretical analysis was actually supported by any sort of experimental evidence. Well, it seemed a trivial thing to prove, so I wrote a simulation to plot a graph of the metric against the variable under a range of conditions... and it turned out it didn't match what I'd said in the first place. Which places our entire project in jeopardy.

I told the divisional manager, and he said, "Ah, just go with it."

I'm glad I have such a relaxed workplace. And this strip was one I drew during our weekly meeting. The bald guy in the background is a caricature of our manager.
