Of course I realize in the context the above quote is correct but it makes it sound like a third grade dropout could be a seismologist. Haha. Best laugh I've had on here for a while.

I think their role is very important for long term policies but I don't understand why the heck they were doing meeting minutes and what is the purpose of those.
