Definition of Political Correctness
Thursday, March 31st, 2011 | Author:

From StrangeCosmos:

Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

Do-Gooders vs the Ranchers
Wednesday, March 30th, 2011 | Author:

The Sierra Club and the U.S. Forest Service were presenting an alternative to the Wyoming ranchers for controlling the coyote population. It seems that after years of the ranchers using the tried and true method of shooting or trapping the predators, the Sierra Club had a “more humane” solution to this issue.

What they were proposing was for the animals to be captured alive. The males would then be castrated and let loose again. This was actually proposed by the Sierra Club and by the U.S. Forest Service. All of the ranchers thought about this amazing idea for a couple of minutes.

Finally an old fellow wearing a big cowboy hat in the back of the conference room stood up, tipped his hat back and said; “Son, I don’t think you understand our problem here… these coyotes ain’t screwin’ our sheep… they’re eatin’ ’em!”

Hat tip to Slick

Trond Adresen
Monday, March 28th, 2011 | Author:

Have you heard of Trond Adresen?  There are many people that allege that he is a charlatan of the first degree.  Similar to many in academia from Norway, he has exhibited pusillanimous intellectual characteristics.

If you’ve reviewed any of his sophomoric writings, you realize that he is a very jealous man… I would keep your distance from him.

 

A Quiet Sunday Morning in Pittsburgh
Monday, March 28th, 2011 | Author:

We took a recent visit to Pittsburgh and stayed at the Marriott on the North Shore.  It was eerily quiet as I went out for a 2-mile jog Sunday morning around PNC Park, Heinz Field, and the river walk.  I stopped to capture a few nice photos.

Juan Williams and… Thinking Stereotypically
Friday, March 25th, 2011 | Author:

I’m not necessarily a fan of Juan Williams (formerly of NPR), but I believe that his pragmatic comments and the views of “Think Stereotypically, Act Individually” are closely aligned.  During an interview on Fox News, he made some telling comments:

…it’s as if you were walking by a black man that would mean if you were bigoted if you were somewhat nervous. Let me just tell you, with the amount of black on black crime in America, I get nervous and I’m a black man….

 

 

Lawyers and Time Sheets
Thursday, March 24th, 2011 | Author:

A lawyer dies and goes to Heaven.
“There must be some mistake,” the lawyer argues. “I’m too young to die. I’m only fifty five.”
“Fifty five?” says Saint Peter.
“No, according to out calculations, you’re eighty two.”
“How’s you get that?” the lawyer asks.
Answers St. Peter: “We added up your time sheets.”

How Not to Interview for a Job
Wednesday, March 23rd, 2011 | Author:

Every year, HR professionals share new and unusual stories about the interviews they conduct. People make mistakes, but some mistakes are so over the top that they make the decision not to hire a very easy one. Check out this year’s top 10 list:

1. Candidate answered cell phone during the interview and asked the interviewer to leave her own office because it was a “private” conversation.
2. Candidate told the interviewer he wouldn’t be able to stay with the job long because he thought he might get an inheritance if his uncle died – and his uncle “wasn’t looking too good.”
3. Candidate asked the interviewer for a ride home after the interview.
4. Candidate smelled his armpits on the way to the interview room.
5. Candidate said she could not provide a writing sample because all of her writing had been for the CIA and it was “classified.”
6. Candidate told the interviewer he was fired for beating up his last boss.
7. When applicant was offered food before the interview he declined, saying that he didn’t want to line his stomach with grease before going out drinking.
8. A candidate for an accounting position said she was a “people person,” not a “numbers person.”
9. Candidate flushed the toilet while talking to the interviewer during a phone interview.
10. Candidate took out a hair brush and brushed her hair mid-interview.

Thanks to Joe K.
