Focus on Problems or Focus on Solutions?

This is an urban legend about US/Russia sending their asronaouts to outerspace.
When NASA began the launch of astronauts into space, they found out that the pens wouldn't workat zero gravity. (Ink won't flow down to the writing surface) In order to solve this problem, they hired Andersen Consulting (Accenture today). It took them one decade and 12 million dollars.They developed a pen that worked at zero gravity, upside down, under water, in practically any surface including crystal and in a temperature range from below freezing to over 300 degrees C.
The Russians used a pencil...
p/s: What you think about our "Outsmart Tunnel" ?

As a former Andersen Consulting/Accenture consultant, i can tell you that this story is not true and have been applied to various companies, though Andersen has always been a favourite due to the big 5/overpriced factor maybe hahaha. There's the other joke about counting lambs via satellite too, which for some reason uses Andersen/ Accenture consultants too. We're not that dumb okay! Hahahaha..
