Company builds telemetry modules for off shore oil drilling rigs. They want to make a “cabin” to store all the receiving equipment to expand services. An engineer was given the task to design a method to prevent it from being damaged from a 20" fall. The only solution was hydraulic shock absorbers bigger than the cabin. He said you can’t break the laws of physics. I agreed. He got fired, they didn’t like the solution nor the fact that he could NOT break the laws of physics.
