What does "one path" even mean?

I spent most of the day in arguments over terminology in a really poorly-written standard. The fact that this is a standard for safety and it makes no sense at all makes me worry about things. The good news is that with a little bit of common sense, we should be able to ignore the stupid parts and still make things safe. It's just that the brainless followers aren't going to like that. It's written, therefore it is law and thou shalt not deviate. I think we're better off letting them explain the concepts of computer programming to us computer programmers, as their standard is written. When they fail, maybe they'll see things our way. Shame it doesn't work like that.

Getting to see the whole team is always good, though. So is getting to see House, which is what I think I'll finish doing now.
