Gobsmacked: adjective, a British colloquial expression meaning flabbergasted, astounded, speechless or overawed.

We recently learned from some lab tests that the waste output of our "green" bio-diesel project will be 10 times the amount that we expected, or designed for. This means either a complete re-design or operating at a much lower capacity than planned. However, our technology experts said that they were not surprised because the lab data was in line with published information.

When we asked them why they didn't feel it important to inform the design team of this issue, they said, "It was too early to worry about it because we didn't have any hard data."
