Previous thread reference. Scan down for the office sex thread for laughter and amusement.

It is hard work to get out of bed and make it to the office on time for another long day of Farking.

Makers is definitely bourbon whiskey. :)

That's spilled maple syrup in that picture though -- it was more photogenic.

I will be having some during tonight's Battle Of I-64 (or so the media is calling it for some dumb reason).  Maybe some of both, really.

"Integrators" are likely afraid that if they don't constantly check work emails, etc, they will be found "redundant" in the next downsizing and fired.  It's not that they don't know how to segregate work and life, it is that they fear losing their jobs if they are perceived as not being 175,000% invested in the job.

Modmins spill bourbon?  I knew they were swine.

Spilled bourbon? Suddenly "Drew ate my homework" is a plausible thing....

What an annoying website - it kept jumping up to the top every few seconds where I couldn't read anything.

Finally got to read some of it, but it seems to not have much useful information.

I've always thought Google wouldn't really be a good place to work at all.  Everyone there is likely either an unfriendly perfectionist nerd or an over-achieving, gratingly-cheerful hipster.  I think I'd go insane after a while.  I also imagine the managers are extremely strict, either directly or passive-aggressively.  There has to be a catch to all the toys, games and free food.

I would guess the catch is they don't care how you get your work done if it is done perfectly, early, and under budget.

I imagine it is like Japan in the sense that there is a huuuuuuuge unwritten rulebook about evvvvveeeeerrrryyyything.

Would have been a certain beer with a red star as its trademark, but Fark ceased all future, um, deliveries...

It's this place where they give you money just for doing things.

Truth be told, it's this "work" thing is how I get my money to buy borubon.

Will were something trophy maze
SOmething something something haze
Come and jint the brotherhood of Man
Blah blah something underwood
How many chucks could a woodchuck could
Holding Red Star proudly high in hand!

We are the preiests of the temples of Syrinx...
