This is sooo the opening of a disaster flick
I can already see it:
Boffin 1: "Sir, we're now at 50%. Everything seems to be running fine."
Admin Guy: "Well done. See, Boffin 2? I told you you were worrying too much. Now crank it up!"
Boffin 1: "60%, all green."
Boffin 2: "What? Sir, we can't... the connectors' quality hasn't been tested. We agreed for a 50%, you've got it - Boffin 1, stop!"
Admin Guy: "Boffin 1, if you stop now, you can say goodbye to your career."
Boffin 1: "Uh... 80% now, all clear."
*cut to a copper bit beginning to melt*
Boffin 1: "90% now, though there's a small blip over the..."
*Boffin 2 and Admin Guy are busy yelling at each other, and ignore Boffin 1*
You can figure out where it goes from there.
