“Far from being the rock or island in the Simon and Garfunkel song, it turns out that the best metaphor to describe the human body is 'sponge.”
Rick Smith, Slow Death by Rubber Duck: How the Toxic Chemistry of Everyday Life Affects Our Health

Permasteelisa installed CATIA in their office after this, and they began using it on all their subsequent projects.”
