No need. Just make yourself a little placard with the following to serve as a meditation.

'FEA is only a tool, not a solution.
It doesn't think and it doesn't design.
It doesn't do what I mean, just what I say.
If I poke a tiger in the ass with the FEA stick, I'm the one who gets eaten.'

I am definitely staying in Florida.....  Alligators are easier to avoid then tigers anyway.
Not in Florida. When was the last time you heard about someone fishing a tiger out of his swimming pool?
