People with criminal records may perform better in call centers. Haha. Economist.

From a genuine CIA handbook on sabotaging organisational efficiency:

(3) When possible, refer all matters to committees, for "further study and consideration." Attempt to make the committees as large as possible - never less than five.

sounds a bit like work to me.

Make-Out Room

Had a great time there last night (on a Friday) - it had a line outside around midnight, and closes at 2 (why!), the people seemed nice, it wasn't too rammed and drinks were pretty reasonable.

Beauty Bar
2299 Mission Street, San Francisco, CA 94110
This place was rammed, full of horrible people, the loos looked like the set of Hostel, and the interior felt like Twin Peaks (the TV show, not the fashionable hill district of our fine city). My two friends felt overwhelmed with the attention (they were women). Avoid.

Anyone for sampling? Here's moderately interesting post misconceptions. I sampled this sentence. Muhaha.
