General Electric

Friday, May 11th, 2018

Update on General Electric’s goal to have a perfect 50/50 ration of male and female workers:

G.E. continues to move forward on the 50/50 plan.  Although there remains some debate concerning which direction the company is heading, details of the plan are emerging.

The current focus of the plan concerns the physical orientation of the employees at the building site.

Will they:

1. space the cubicles evenly (e.g. male, female, male, female….)
2. segregate the males and females by sides of the building (perhaps using a compass… or a rotating building to keep it fair)

Once the employees are in place, phase II details will be banged out.

On the table now:

  • Address the gender deniers and trans-trans gender-errs
  • Operate on all the employees to remove all trace of gender and eliminate the bathroom problem, driving the stock market wild.
  • Implement  gender as an attachment with a firewall that prevents them from opening it at work.

note:  The attachment will not open (display) properly on their cell phones, however, there will be those who try.

According to Wikipedia, Valentine’s Day is not a public holiday in any country.

Of course not – Love is private!

Happy Martin Luther King Jr.’s Birthday!

National Park now – how cool is that?

(It is a Federal Holiday and this year it is on the 15th- his actual birthday)

MLK:  Civil Rights Act, Congress, Presidents – whew!

They managed to squeeze one out.

Lots of words, people still trying to mangle it, but it worked.

MLK was the leader of the Civil Rights Movement in the U.S.

I don’t see it as a bunch of laws that are supposed to do everything for everybody.

It’s about Black Americans.   Especially about the ones who have been here building the country longer than most white people.

It does, however, include everybody.

Credit deserved where the credit’s due.

Scarbage

Scarbage

Sunday, July 9th, 2017

     Scarbage is the evolved state of garbage left unattended. It leaves a scar after it is cleaned up, like a wound.  It is permanent.  It is vulnerable to infection.  It can be contagious.

It is a combination of social, biological, chemical and physical processes.

Although many of the components in the creation of scarbage have been identified, the processes involved are complex and not yet completely understood.  There is debate among the scientific community over whether or not scarbage is self-aware.

The major components required for scarbage to synthesize are usually a combination of:

  1. Anti-social behavior
  2. Debris
  3. Air
  4. Ignorance
  5. Unsanitary conditions
  6. Exposure to UV light
  7. Time

The time required for scarbage to synthesize varies.

In addition, the type of scar left on the landscape varies.

The three major categories are:

  • Visual
  • Fragrant
  • Audible

It can also be a combination of all three.

There is a lack of consensus whether scarbage is a disease or disorder.

In spite of the fact that an effective vaccine has been available for centuries, many cities refuse to participate in the inoculation.

There is speculation that this refusal is itself a symptom of dormant infection, and may be a mechanism in reproduction,  propagation and overall life-cycle of scarbage.
