Grrrr #1

(yesterday) “I have good news and bad news. The good news is we have a wonderful testing opportunity for LCxxx (super-secret project slated to wrap up in, oh, April). Bad news is we’ll need a fully debugged, working prototype by next Friday. It’ll need to record continuously for 3 months on the ridiculously under-sized memory we slapped onto the test boards, without running out the ridiculously under-sized 9v battery. What are you doing this weekend?”

QOTD: People deliberately lie for two reasons: To get what they want, and avoid conflict.
Actually people lie for a third reason, to GENERATE conflict. …
Actually people deliberatly lie for one reason: to get what they want. If I’m lying to avoid conflict or generate conflict, I’m still lying to get what I want.
What about people who tell the truth? Why do they do that?
So they can sleep at night.
So you say they lie in their sleep?
