Dilbert REALLY needs to get some lessons from Wally - Dil tries too hard, thinks too much. No sense in being the nowhere man, man - just keep it low and slow - the only thing anxiety does is produce more of itself.....
I know how Dilbert feels.
I do control systems in power plants, and stationary facilities (paper mills & various types of process plants). Color is very important when showing the status of switchgear, motor controls, motors, etc. Power plants were first- and a red indicating light meant energized, running, danger. Green was the opposite. In the stationary plants, I don't know when, and probably due to green being the color of money and money is not being made if the equipment is stopped, some ignorant PHB-type decided to reverse the power plant standard i.e. Green is energized, running, danger and red is stopped.
Could possibly explain why so many drivers run red lights?
