Many people in my company have a nother term for "Obviously". They start
statements off in meetings by saying the thing they are about to discuss
is a "no-brainer". After that little statement, no one is going to admit
they did not understand. The "no-brainer" is usually filled with
technical babble that most in the audience do not understand, and the
meeting ends with them still not understanding the topic.
