Gun Control…

Scott Adams of Dilbert Fame:

So it seems to me that gun control can’t be solved because Democrats are using guns to kill each other – and want it to stop – whereas Republicans are using guns to defend against Democrats.

That quote will probaly make my sister-in-law’s head explode.

Not a chance.

My memory of those times is not the trash was left and that they were littering, I think the parks department had people that would clean up.

Gator!

This thing is huge!

I wonder if the perspective is faked and the thing is not really that big.

Graduation is not what we called it at HP

From an article on HubSpot:

Dharmesh’s culture code incorporates elements of HubSpeak. For example, it instructs that when someone quits or gets fired, the event will be referred to as “graduation.” In my first month at HubSpot I’ve witnessed several graduations, just in the marketing department. We’ll get an email from Cranium saying, “Team, just letting you know that Derek has graduated from HubSpot, and we’re excited to see how he uses his superpowers in his next big adventure!” Only then do you notice that Derek is gone, that his desk has been cleared out. Somehow Derek’s boss will have arranged his disappearance without anyone knowing about it. People just go up in smoke, like Spinal Tap drummers.

Nobody ever talks about the people who graduate, and nobody ever mentions how weird it is to call it “graduation.” For that matter I never hear anyone laugh about HEART or make jokes about the culture code. Everyone acts as if all of these things are perfectly normal.

When I worked for HP we, at least those in my little group, called graduation getting shot. As in, “Did you hear that Derek got shot?”
