Ok, so now even forum moderators join the off-topic attempts at humor.

Way to hold up your own standards.

Please add to the point made in the OP or face the consequences. Don't make me use my awesome powers and deduct some of your ATS points.

How is this relevant to the OP? How is this not disrespecting the OP?

On a more serious note:

From wikipedia:

Skunk Works


The designation "skunk works", or "skunkworks", is widely used in business, engineering, and technical fields to describe a group within an organization given a high degree of autonomy and unhampered by bureaucracy, tasked with working on advanced or secret projects.


(emphasis mine)

I rather enjoy that concept.

There are a lot of underestimated threads to be found in this forum, and it's always been one of my favorites as well.
