Meeting Cost Calculator

26 February 2008, 20:11

A friend asked me to share something I made years ago when meetings were getting very inefficient.  We could turn it on on a computer to remind us of the cost of either having the wrong people in the room or not making decisions.  I thought I’d share it. I toyed with allowing you to enter the salary etc. but that’s not in there now.

This is Sparta

The government of Iran has called for a boycott of the movie “300”, citing it as an example of cultural war. Here is a humorous take on that stance (a bit off-color, as a warning):

We have a toy like this too...

It may look like an innocent toy ...

I don’t even know the name of this puzzle—it’s not written anywhere on the product—which makes me even more convinced it was whittled by the pen knife of Lucifer himself. In theory, it’s a simple and entertaining toy, where each of the smiling vehicle puzzle pieces plays a different sound when it is removed. (The ambulance makes a siren, the tugboat blares a foghorn, etc.)This would be fine, if it didn’t keep going off when no one is playing with it.


Phew! And we thought we were the only ones! (We have the animal version of this toy and it does this at all strange times.)

Clam Chowder rant

26 April 2006, 20:03

Dear California Restaurateurs:

I grew up in Boston. I know clam chowder. Do not confuse Boston Clam Chowder with New England Clam Chowder. Do not advertise New England Clam Chowder as Boston Clam Chowder.

Boston Clam Chowder does not have cream in it; it is a clear broth. New England Clam Chowder has cream in it. And by the way Manhattan Clam Chowder is a clear broth (no cream) but with tomato.

Here is some Clam Chowder math in case this is not clear:

Boston Clam Chowder + cream = New England Clam Chowder

Manhattan Clam Chowder – tomato = Boston Clam Chowder

Thank you.
