LOL. As a young LTC I was slotted as a Liaison officer newly arrived at Grafenwoehr for an exercise. I no sooner walked into the briefing tent from the convoy and was immediately chewed out by the general for not having my PowerPoint briefing slide up on the screen, my protestations to having only arrived 5 minutes before cut no ice. Thereafter I always had my 2 liner ready - Go or No Go. He was not amused. Meanwhile, staff pukes were spending the majority of their 12 hour shifts dreaming up all sorts of whiz bang PowerPoints that the general spent less than 2 seconds looking at and never even asking questions about. At the end of the exercise I handed out PowerPoint Ranger Certificates authorizing the wearing of the Powerpoint Ranger Tab. Again, the general was not amused.

LOL. We wasted ALOT of time and paper one upping each other with Power Point razzle dazzle. It got to the point where commanders would critique staff slides for style points and color pallete choices. Such BS.
