I met with my project group for Business Ethics and our topic was essentially “Do corporations influence or decisions on status symbols”.  Short answer: duh.  After about 20 minutes of talking, I quickly realized that no one in the group could actually come up with a reasonable argument that didn’t consider of “yes” so I resorted to intellectual bamboozlement.  I opened up a project I did on Berkshire Hathaway and said I’d already done the background work and would email it out to everyone.  Despite everyone looking at the project on BH no one disagreed that I’d truly done wondrous work.  Thank God they’re dumb enough to let this slide but not so dumb to insist on helping.
