Misc.

Bam chicka wah wah - BANG! (Link to CNN, via Drudge)

Clearly, the Iranian government knows a thing or two about porn. It spared the screenwriters from death penalty. (And if you don't know what "bam chicka wah wah" is, read comment #31 on this forum.)

You know who I would like to execute? People who come into meetings with their Blackberries and laptops switched on. When did it become acceptable to be on IM, browsing and checking emails in the middle of a meeting? Back in the good old days, meetings involved certain protocols, like making eye-contact with everyone in the room and asking serious questions. And playing tic-tac-toe without looking down.

It seems my blogroll has more than one webcomic artist-writer. When Scout's not writing spine-chilling posts like this one, she's busy re-discovering her drawing skills. More! More! And I didn't just spot a peacock.

My coworkers are constantly monitoring their stock portfolios in meetings. Even in design reviews!
These are technical design reviews, not some marketing presentations. (Apologies to all MBAs)

GGOP: have you tried planting false stock tips among your co-workers? Watch them prepare to die in design review meetings as their stock PLUNGES!

ha, cubicle dwellers!

Do I detect superiority in the Professor's tone? Ha, PhD!!

Tabula Rasa said...

say what you want, but our comic is better than yours :-D

Falstaff said...

tr: What do you mean "our comic"? PhD is a comic for hardly-working, cubicle sharing, penniless, unmotivated doctoral students (like yours truly) - you professor types need to get your own strip.

Not to mention the iphone is on its way, pretty soon there will be even more of them suckers

falstaff:
hey, "you" wouldn't *have* a comic if it weren't for the bearded "we". :-D

km said...

sai: Nooo! Apple says if you buy their products, then you are NOT a sucker. But that means....

TR, Falstaff: let's have a clean fight.

km:
you don't get it - we're agreeing. back to the blackberry with you.

km said...

TR: I clearly lack the smarts for PhD and MBA.

Tabula Rasa said...

what's smarts got to do with it? just sit on that blackberry - settings appropriate, of course - and start thinking about the ancient epics.

km said...

TR: That's a rather strange way of consuming an epic. Or expelling one.

Tabula Rasa said...

just being a little enema-tic.

km said...

TR: readers are asstounded at your irreverence.
