Here to Play Russian Roulette?

Engineering Science so far has been like riding a roller-coaster with no seatbelt, blind. Confused? Let’s review and use a scene from “The Office” as an analogy to further explore the idea. Here, Andy’s boss, Deangelo (me) is attempting to sell Andy (EngSci) as a paper salesman to a client, Boris (you, in this case,…Continue Reading Here to Play Russian Roulette?
