(Blink!)   Did you actually hear yourself?   “Six months designing...” (Then...)   “Six months implementing...”

Obvious question:   Heavens to Betsy!   Just how many “Six Months” does it take?” . . .

Inquiring Minds want to Know ...

Thomas Edison might quite-plausibly be excused;   after all, no one had invented a Light Bulb before.   But, let’s face it... “by now, we are supposed to know what-the-hell we are doing!”

I mean...   even in the worst possible of conditions, our dear CMC Machine Shop does not have to tell Boeing, “so sorry, Boss, see you next year!”

“Jimminy Cricket ... we do need to deliver!”   This is Engineering, after all ... isn’t it?
