"Captain, the purpose of game night is to improve crew morale. I have done so... for everyone but Dr. McCoy. The needs of the many..."

I wonder if Cetacean Ops had these kind of problems.

I think it's a great game, but remember to keep playing after you get to the ending.

Starch is a chemical that can be used on clothing in order to make it more stiff. It's traditionally used on formal wear -- things like fancy shirts and dresses. Using A LOT of starch can make clothes too stiff, like Mooch's favorite sock here.

Except that last one. I think it was about to say "I love you."

Refers to a tactic in competitive online games that feature a mechanic where players come back to the playfield a few seconds after they're killed (called respawning). There are usually only a few points on the map where players respawn (called "spawn points"), so some players pursue a strategy where they wait near a spawn point for an opportunity to kill any respawning players before they get their bearings. So kitty here is going to wait for the wings to be done and then snatch them the instant they "spawn" from the oven (or fryer or what have you). (Edited for spelling.)

Based on the prices I looked up you could feed everyone on Earth 1,800 kcal of potatoes for one day for around 40 billion USD. So... lets do it! Global spud day! Don't ask me where to get a pot that big for boiling all them taters though.

But is "prompt hacking" considered actual "hacking?"

  1. Who writes an email directly to the CEO of their company, and
  2. Who would that email have to be from for the CEO to actually bother reading it?

I'm guessing it's not your rank-and-file type "people".

No problem, I just need a rocket, 7.2 x 10^48 gallons of blue dye, and ten reliable men.

That's ok, I'll just take the rocket and the men, then.

I asked an executive this very question, and he said that the board was getting pressure from stock-holders to reduce headcounts, and justifying that pressure by pointing to other large companies who had already undertaken massive layoffs, and the resulting rise in their stock prices. In this way layoffs become a game of follow the leader -- or like a contagion. "Google just fired a third of their workforce, why are we doing that? We should do what they did, look how successful they are."
