Poop floats

fogTower of Babel, Star of David diagram, puttin’ lipstick on a pig, Poop Floats. I think my fave is the last. Poop floats. Yes. Actually, I am trying to think about whether or not poop floats. I want to say that it does, thinking about all the times us kids adventurously pointed our flashlights down the outhouse hole. But I have not researched this topic. I have not taken any samples and I do not have any data.

Sit in a room for an hour and a half with folks who speak everything from old mainframe computer languages to web application languages to try to dredge out requirements for moving old stuff that runs on old technology to… Well, I have said enough about my job. Let’s just say that nobody is talking about off-shoring my job or anyone else’s on my “team” to India or wherever. I know how silly this is but we are part of the “brain trust”. Not that those Indian (or whatever) folks are not pretty damn good. Because they are fantastic! Actually I think India is going to take over the world, aminals (big ones) [and humans] peeing in the street notwithstanding. But whaddoo I know? But start learning the languages of India because they may well be the next lingua franca [francae?]. They already know all of the computer languages.

All that said and I am not sure where I am going with this but why do we have to compete all the time. Why can’t we collaborate more often?

Oh yes, I am driving on the “grate” here on our southward trip outta the yooperland.

    Collaboration is ideal if we want everyone to be successful, but if we want only ourselves to be, we have to always be in competition so we win and someone else loses. A sad state of affairs.

    Poop floats? Take a tall glass, add two scoops of ice cream and fill with soda!

    EWW, that’s not what you meant, is it?
