Just about anyone that uses a computer can relate to this Dilbert comic strip, but it is especially valid in the military where plagiarism isn’t just authorized–it is a survival skill:
A Canadian General Officer reported to NTM-A and rejected Powerpoint; he demanded that it not be used and didn’t want to see it. Within a couple short weeks, the “2-maple leaf” had submitted to the force and is now known as the creator of some of the worst powerpoint presentations!
After 30 days at NTM-A, anyone suffering a paper cut is qualified for the Powerpoint Ranger Tab. Canadians don’t wear the tab, but a special exception is in order.
