The bacteria rule the earth.
Thanks for the info Corrijean.
Those of you who are going to be out and about after dark during the next couple of evenings please be careful. I see that the full moon is out and the " Lunatics " may be on the prowl ( yes some of the loonies are affected by the full lunar orb, at times ).
I've never heard of the Global Bankers referred to as bacteria before, but if anything, I would've thought they would be considered more like a virus. :P
The moon was beautiful last night. I was out and about when it was rising.
I gather that Goole receives close to 50,000 applications per week ( yup per week ) from people who want to work there. So if you are trying to get in with Google there might be a bit of a wait until they send a reply back to you.
Wow. I wonder how many employees they have. Maybe I should google it. :)
I have watched some youtube videos of people Google has brought in to give talks (SGU plus some famous authors). It would be pretty neat to work for a place that brought famous intellectuals to you in the hope it would bring you some sort of indirect benefit (curiosity and critical thinking, perhaps?).
The other day there was an item on the radio about a " imaginary artist ". Yes this lady imagines that she is doing a painting or a sculpture and after a while says to folks " Ok there it is, my new work of art " ( no I'm not making this up lol ). She had a show a few days ago and when some people claimed that there was no art to see she said that you must imagine the art. She even sold a couple of imagimary pieces at $35k each. Perhaps the police will ask her to imagine some fraud charges ?
That reminds me of another fella who created a book containing biographies of imaginary artists, but the art was real enough. I wonder how art appraisers will decide if those imaginary pieces are authentic or not.
Thanks for the post Ivandh, I had not heard about that fellow. One thing that bothered me a lot is that I can't seem to find people who will pay $35k for an imaginary painting, I do have a good imagination lol.
I'm in the wrong line of work.
It's a smart move. Google hires bright (mostly young) people. A seminar with another intellectual (or, innovator), may open a door, and, if you work for google, whatever you discover probably belongs to them when you're in their employ.
If I were in IT, I would go to all seminars. If I had an idea that I thought may go somewhere (read: $), I wouldn't tell anyone. I might start my own business.
--- Thanks for the posts AlCzervik.
Yes I understand the feeling, years ago when I was very young I imagined that I was very talented but then reality set in.
