I have a coworker who speaks almost entirely in jargon and whose contributions to group projects is making slideshow presentations. Listening to them, you’d think they were a programmer, multimedia artist, and electronics hobbyist and they’ve impressed the uninformed with their vocabulary. Meanwhile they try to outsource actual work like web development or research to others.
I’ve been tempted to create a random coworker phrase generator in Python.
On mine, the spurving bearings were misaligned, causing a fractal decoupling on the panametric fan’s topmost perambulating Harris flange. That sucker hit me square in the spavicle and I haven’t been able to talk right for a week.
Thanks! I looked it up on Wikipedia. Well played! (I should have seen that coming, but I’ve gone to too many industry expos where a sales person tries to ST:NG a database to make it sound more impressive.)
Also @Ponchyan back in 2008 after HP demonstrated the first memristor, some people started calling it a “flux capacitor,” supposedly because of the symmetry of equations between it and a capacitor, but based on flux instead of charge, but I think everyone knew it was an excuse to make that movie reference.
