When they hear a nuclear missile was on the way they stopped watching porn and ran around screaming "Oh God We're All Gonna Die!", and after the all clear they all went back to masturbating in celebration.

Damn it feels good to be a human.

I work for an information analysis company. We suck in information on just about any business / resource / environment sector you can think of, and interpret and add value to it and pump it out to clients. We employ around 9000 people in offices around the world.

The business unit I work for specializes in financial info, specifically the actions companies take that affect their shareholders (dividends, take-overs, spin-offs etc., ) and we confirm and format that info in a way our clients can use to STP populate their own systems.

Basically, we do the checking so that our clients do not have to employ pricey people who know what the hell is going on, and so can outsource the downstream actions to centres in India or Poland or whatever.

It still seems weird to me that I started off as a typical poorly-paid clerk in various stockbrokers offices shuffling paper around all those years ago, and now I am a rare and treasured expert resource.

Wait, no... I mean, no...2017 wipe?

Godammit, if that week doesn't include getting drunk, getting into a fight, and watching Screen Wipe, Christmas and New Year are cancelled.

I will spend the holiday period watching back-to-back IKEA and Coca Cola adverts in penance.

Babylonians had a method of trigonometry way more accurate than what we use.

Article above. Video below:

It's all down to using base 60 rather than decimal.

If the podcast turns out yet again to consist of a 3 hour close-up of Rem's testicles, I may withhold my support.
