I saw a news report the other day about a new airplane that one of the local
airlines here has just received.  Well, the film crew went down to Seattle
to pick up the plane with all the airline brass and they got a tour of the
Boeing facility.

So the cameraman is inside filming footage of the Boeing factory floor and
he zooms in on this guy 'working' on a computer on the factory floor.

His application, no, not AutoCAD.... solitaire.  On film.  Haha...

 philosophical discussion of any kind is wasted upon a koala."
