I'll tell you what's scary. A manager visibly shaking at your desk  
pointing out that they'll be out a quarter million if your project -  
which has just keeled over despite some late evenings beating it into  
shape - doesn't fly, and you don't know how to fix it. I could almost  
see my P45 (en_US: pink slip) in front of me there and then.

As it so happens, I did pull that particular rabbit out of the hat  
and it *is* front page news, but in a good way. But I'd rather have  
not been in that position, TYVM.
