    6 weeks (30) plus 17+2 is impressive. 49 days off a year, you really only end up working ~200 days a year if I'm marthing this right.

    You didn’t even factor stampede or patios into that analysis.

    Spicy caesars with the vendor to get information is definitely a work day

    The benefit of masks is not known at this time. But we do know it is some non-trivial amount more than zero.

    We also know that the cost of mask use is, essentially, zero.

    So the cost:benefit of mask use is approaching infinity. I'll take that every time. And every time I see someone without a mask, I think they are stupid.

    Vendor, client, customer or just a stakeholder. They all need some ceasars.

    I remember SAFETY DAY at Shell being essentially a full day party. Zero alcohol, but the square root of zero work, plus clowns, balloon animals and BBQ.

    *Before 2015

    Safety day would be something conceived by an Industrial Hygienist, the balloon animals were crafted in a fume hood.

    No that is a “training course” for new grads called Shell Life. Yes that’s the actual name lol. Apparently I wasn’t cool enough to get flown to NL. But I did get a free week at the rim rock in Banff and connected with other grads, so it was a decent way to spend a week. I even got to expense the mileage to drive back and forth at a pretty generous per km rate

    No idea if they are still doing that. Not even sure if new grads have been hired in the last few years at all even.

    It's not. I was in the middle of something and didn't have time to Internet with the full care & attention people have come to expect from me.
    It's just a loop of about 3 seconds from Letterkenny.

    Haha yea, clicking a link about 12yo girls seems like a good way to get on a list.
