@khpage: funny thing is there could be arguments for either BS in BS or BA in BS, assuming one feels that there is either an art or a science behind BS. I could also consider differences in the various aspects of BS, such as presentation skills with it, or perhaps research and/or theory behind BS, social aspects of BS, etc. But that is all saved for MA/MS or PhD programs of BS. :)
If you understood the first panel, what would be the difference if the nerd had said: "We need to put more effort into our risk-assessment application"; except that Dilbert (and I) might have understood it. And if I've got it wrong, what DID it mean?
The 'sub-langauage' wasn't created by lawyers to so they would 'appear smarter that they really are',it was created so that you need to hire a lawyer to read and help you understand it when used in a legal document, plus, someone else had already paid the lawyer to write the unreadable legal document.
