    You'd think they'd have more important things to worry about, but they are pretty close to D.C.

    That's it, you've got it! I really think you deserve the prize, and because I am so generous, you will get the full weight in gold of all the bikinis and Victoria's Secret items I received from Chick-Dance (to date), too!

    Remember the puzzle with the three powerful ladies' pictures... One was Carly Fiorina, who unfortunately was just forced out at HP.

    Sad story, but obviously, big wasn't beautiful in this case, the Compaq deal was always questionable. And the whole story certainly was no fun for the people involved, the strategy at HP was changing a lot and confusing even for the employees.

    Send me the prize NOW!
    Why 2 exceptions? There are no exceptions, actually, the event takes place every 5.034965 minutes. I can post/PM why, if you like, there is a quite simple explanation.

    No surrender!

    I am not even sure what Chick-Dance expects from me, I mean, I offered her the weight in gold of all the bikinis and Victoria's Secret items I received from her... I will check again and also ask my wife, but I am really not sure ANYTHING ever arrived!

    Since this has become a math thread (only temporarily, I hope )...

    Do you know how biologists can prove that all odd numbers are prime numbers? Easy:

    1 is prime (let's not fuss with details, ok)?
    3 is prime
    5 is prime
    7 is prime
    9 is a measurment error
    11 is prime
    13 is prime... the rest you can extrapolate.

    FWIW, and not to offend, but I know a reasonable number folks currently and formerly at HP. Unfortunately, I don't know any that thought Carly was doing a good job.

    I mean she was powerful and all, and she had to have something of a clue to get so very far, but I do wonder if she just got in over her head (or into a no-win situation).

    How about you, Chick-Dance, would you also rather wear tatoo only instead of fur?

    And do you also like Basketball stars, not only Baseball?

I wouldn't be surprise if some of her "showing off" that she did was due to the "inferiority" women feel in the corporate world.
    I don't know... why should women feel inferior in the corporate world... they are not, who would doubt that? Maybe sometimes some people (men) try to make them feel inferior, but those men also treat other men like that.

    I think being a woman (meaning being a more or less rare case in the business world, in the higher places) can be both an advantage and a disadvantage. I know both expamples, sometimes people prefer to have a woman when they fill a new position (to get a better gender mix), most of the time they don't care, sometimes it may be a disadvantage (though that seems quite rare in my experience).

    I guess the differences between two individuals in business are mostly bigger than the differences between man and woman in business.

    Totally.

    Of course, some companies have glass ceilings and some executives are racist and some people only want to be surrounded by "yes" men (er ... persons). In all cases they are hurting themselves as much as those they restrict.

    Since you're a bit of a femi-Chick, let me ask you about this tangent (no, it's not a math question you freaks! ). I had an elderly English/Lit teacher that used to have a fit about the use of "Ms." Her point was that it was not an abbreviation for anything. She was okay with just "Ms" but not "Ms."

    What's considered correct these days?

    Why, do you work for IBM or DELL?

    Maybe on average more women are just too wise to sacrifice their entire life to their career?

    Being higher up does not necessarily mean being happier on the long run...

    Thanks a lot for the link, I will have a look at it!

    I didn't know Wikinews yet, but I look into www.wikipedia.com quite often and I find it great. I am mostly surprised by the quality of information there, given everybody can change the articles at will. Sometimes cross-checking with www.encarta.com is a good idea.

    One important reason for the iPod's popularity is its versatility: it can be many things to many people. To those, add musicians with thin walls or cranky neighbors.
    Sad I don't play the guitar!

    Yesterday, for the first time I heard a song on my iPod in which the singer sang a song about listening to a song on her iPod...:
    ...
    I keep our song on repeat
    On my ipod, even when I sleep
    ...


    The song is by Joss Stone, very nice song btw, very nice lyrics, too, highly recommended.

    Edit:
    Hey I just realize I seem to be terribly en vogue: Joss Stone has won a Brit Award yesterday, the most prestigious (pop) music award in the UK:
    Joss Stone, the teenage soul singer from Devon, beat competition from rivals including the strongly tipped R'n'B singer Jamelia and last year's most notable debutante Natasha Bedingfield to be the star of the Brit Awards last night.
