Comment if you use it to punish the women (Score 1) 170

Why do I feel this would be used to punish the real workers even more and give the women free passes? Offices I have been at always have some lazy workers (usually women) that facebook, and generally kill 3 to 5 hours a day till it is time to go home, smart phone broswering ( how does this help that?) personnel calls, office kitchen chatter, etc. Somehow I feel they will still be gone soft on and the people will use 95% of their time well will just be ridden harder. Because certain people just seem to get a free pass because of social tyes and manager subconscious favoritism.

Comment regarding perks (Score 1) 268

Regarding perks. I've always been suspicious of the IT companies that offer man-child tier tastes such as nurf toys or endless candy bars and lounge chairs. The best workers are 40 years old, show up at 8am, take an hour lunch, and leave at 6 pm. And anyways we all know a lot office workers are lazy in general, though some of that is from Dilbert-ish stagnation of corporate stuff.

So can the Professor at the last moment before rdy-for-market product is designed abscond to the private sector to cash in screwing over his new host? Get real. There is a reason he was at the university. The system of grants works as a part of a bigger system, stop being a pedantic and realize his old university is owed something if not everything.

Comment Artists are jerks (Score 1) 172

modern "fine art" artists are jerks. In stead of learning how to make masterpieces they are all about attitude and crap. All modern art is just a drug deal game anyways, it's all about laundering money it now appears. What, did you really think some screaks of blue paint was worth 100 million to some Eastern euro people when the old masters don't fetch that much? Also I bunch of tax doges.

Of course you can't flap your arms and fly to the moon. After a while you'd run out of air to push against.
