I wasn't not taking it easy in my reply, just noted some huge hyperbole. No offense intended. Cheers.
"Hyperbole is the use of exaggeration as a rhetorical device or figure of speech. It may be used to evoke strong feelings or to create a strong impression, but is not meant to be taken literally."

Notice that last part...and isn't "huge" hyperbole a bit redundant
Now...back to the awesome engineering feats in this thread

Well if you want to go that route, I prefer and intended the simple Merriam Webster definition of hyperbole, "language that describes something as better or worse than it really is", also " extravagant exaggeration". It was huge hyperbole...
