Also word choice. Three slides in a row begin with "Senior Actuaries"

There should be a Dramamine warning.

you didn't see all those pictures of the globe (taken from one of the poles) in the background? Clearly a global endeavor, with focus on Antarctica or the North Pole.

I was waiting for the KoolAid man to burst through the screen and offer everyone a big glass.

Yeah, what an unbelievable waste of time. I mean the slide show, not the GI track. No wait, I mean both. Still, even if you take it as a given that we have and will continue to have a GI track and ought to be marketing it, the slide show *still* seemed like an unbelievable waste of time, and of course it's not remotely a given that we should continue to have the GI track or market it.

*Disclaimer: I grew fearful of losing my lunch if I continued to watch it, and only watched for ~5 minutes and then stopped it before it was over. Conceivable that it got better, but highly improbable.

That was the thing that bothered me the least about the slide show. I mean, it's OK to go for parallelism IMO.

Interesting the way that they prefer substituting appearances for facts and impressions for demonstrations.
