    It's senior level.

    By the way: That is my favorite line.

    I say it every time I want to be crystal clear that the risks are high and it's not clear what could happen.

    A "Hail mary" by all means.

    *shrugs* You want a solution. You get a solution.

    Not saying it solves a problem, just saying it's a solution.
