Synergy

I remember the concept of synergy plastering the textbooks of business schools all over the place in the late ’90s. Synergy was in style and the mandatory buzzword to throw out in job interviews.

Whole is greater than some of its parts.
Everyone can recite the dictionary definition of the word, but I’m not sure if everyone really appreciates what it’s all about.

Generally, we’d say that 1+1 = 2. The proponents of the power of synergy would say, nay, my friends, 1+1 = Wonder Twin Girl Power ACTIVATE!

It’s amazing what individuals can accomplish as a team. The adrenaline of victory that comes only when bunch of poop-flinging monkey individuals really learn to come together as one unit… united with the trust & coordination of Redwood High School marching band… oh, man, that rush is like porn to me.

Ok. Let's see if you get this: 1+1+1+1 = ?

a) 4
b) Turtle Power
c) Girl Power
============================================

And of course, 1+1+1+1+1 = Go Go Pally Rangers.
When calling for the Megazord formation, please remember that yellow and blue are the legs, not the fucking arms.
