A commonly held misconception about FTI is that our guys don't know how to have fun. Oh sure, we regularly engage in grind-it-out, leading edge, out-of the box-thinking. That's our job. And getting there is not always pretty. Regularly, there are hurt feelings, accusations of stupidity, uneasy alliances, and chipped fingernail polish. In the end though, the job gets finished and the results are displayed here. Once that is done, though, our guys live by the motto: Work hard, play hard.
This past weekend, a couple of the guys got out on the local course and decided to play some golf. The weather wasn't ideal, but hey, it's a chance to get out of confinement. Here is a picture of one of our affiliates, Slateface, attempting to convert a simply "miserable" round to just a "horrible" one. Though the rules of golf actually do allow for such a shot to be attempted, normal players would accept the extra stroke penalty, drop a new ball, and play on. Not our Slateface, though. He brings this type of competitive determination, drive, and idiocy to our thinktank policy meetings on a daily basis. This might have some connection to the comments of most of our ideas being "all wet". I don't know what that means.
