Q: What to say to describe we are lost in a project?

asmgxAt work I am a member of a project that does not have project manager at the moment I want to tell my department manager that we are not on the right path and we are lost. I am not sure if the term "It is like we are shooting blindly" is a proper English expression that fits this situation is ...

I don't think the best English in the world will help him now.

the word dense contains two apparently contradictory definitions: 1. stupid; slow-witted; dull; 2. difficult to understand because of being closely packed with ideas or complexities of style.

@tchrist neither German nor Russian even have the I version in the first place. And good on them. Fuck Ancient Greek. If you want to speak Ancient Greek, speak Ancient Greek. If you want to speak English, well, speak English then.
Just look at Cerberus. This is what happens to you when you speak Ancient Greek.
Maybe even more to the point, if you speak Ancient Greek, you will actually die.
Buyer beware.

@CaptainBohemian Don't be so dense.
haha
ha
But seriously, that second one, 'dense' can be -used- in that situation ('densely packed -with information-) but the context has to be specified. i.e. 'He is dense' means only one thing, he is stupid. It can't mean by itself that 'he contains multitudes of ideas'.
Oh... just looked at your Free Dictionary link. Hm... I suppose, but the wording there seems to imply muddledness.
I am getting annoyed with dictionaries that add meaning entries for uses that are metaphorical that aren't sort of essential meanings of the word (like this one of 'dense').
I'm going to write my congressman in charge of the committee of lexicography.

@Mitch a profound issue for an outsider can be muddled, but why is an outsider an outsider of that profound issue? it can be because he is stupid.

@Mitch I wonder, why is densei not a word yet? Should be the most appropriate and useful coinage for the Internet.

@Robusto uh. Hm. That's quite a gamut on offer. I think I'll be taking the "speaking tube". Thanks. Chips on the side, please.
@Robusto no, that's Tom Scott.
And if you're not subscribed to him, you should be reconsidering your life's choices.
If you are subscribed, then all your choices so far have been great. Carry on.
