A large file cabinet full of bureaucrap fell over which resulted in the death of a young boy.

This caused an emergency meeting of the involved parties to determine if the confiscation of all the bureaucrap will effect project completion and the cost impact of losing the important bureaucrap. It was determined that the confiscation of the file cabinet resulted in a increase of production due to the removal of clutter from the office and a cost savings due to not having to pay some one to store it at project completion.
