Happy Indigenous Peoples Day

(from Wikipedia, with edits by me)

Michael Berliner of the Ayn Rand Institute said Western civilization brought "reason, science, self-reliance, individualism, ambition, and productive achievement" slavery, death and pestilence to a people who were based in “primitivism, mysticism, and collectivism” lived with and honored the natural balance of life, and to a land that was "sparsely inhabited, unused, and underdeveloped." capable of maintaining homeostasis with all life forms.

FIFY, Donut Man

One reason my company is in trouble

  • [I walk into elevator lobby to head home, notices the CFO is likewise waiting. We exchange pleasantries.]
  • Head of Finance/Controlling: [joins us from other hallway, not wearing coat, not carrying computer bag, clearly not leaving]
  • CFO [to FI-CO]: On your way out?
  • FI-CO: Ah, no, just heading down to get my lottery tickets.
  • [I notice FI-CO is holding a plastic envelope that appears designed for organizing lottery bet slips, money, and tickets. My eyes roll. Luckily I am wearing sunglasses.]
  • CFO: Ah, yes. You do this often?
  • FI-CO: Well, I'd hate to see my numbers come up not having bought a ticket.
  • CFO: Ah, so you play the same numbers every time?
  • FI-CO: Yes, sir. Not gonna do EZ-Pick or anything.
  • CFO: I'd do the same, I've always thought it was statistically more likely for them to come up if you used the same numbers each time.
  • FI-CO: Absolutely.
  • [At this point the elevator arrives, this is good because I am probably visibly twitching.]
