Web nonsense
We have webnonsense at work now.
Which is nice.
And some smart arse, thought it'd be a really cool idea to redirect everyone in the company, through google.fr.

Websense bothers me slightly. Blocks hacking sites and swimwear sites, but sites about the cultivation and use of cannabis are fine.

Which actually leads me to wonder.

Wouldn't a climate controlled, always lit computer room, with aircon to take away the smell be almost the perfect place to operate a hydroponic garden?
You could even hook the nutrient supply and other environmental controls in to the systems monitoring tools, so you can track how well your weed is growing.

On a completely unrelated note, is it morally wrong to have a wank on company time? I mean, you're effectively paid to go to the toilet, make coffee, and to attend to other 'bodily needs'...

On the completely unrelated note, is this an admission of guilt?

Of course not. Wanking makes you short sighted.

oh wait

Obligatory "oh shi..!" response.

You can't say it will help de-stress you because the government will tax it as a benefit

hang on. I thought taxable benefits were things of a financial nature.
So they could tax you on the porn, but not on the ... ahem act.

Although if the same logic applied to having a dump, then I'd be almost too delighted to announce that it allowed me to de-stress. Poo-tax appeals to my sense of toilet humour.

Kinda like the planet in HHGG where it was suggested you always get a receipt after using the toilet...

You can imagine the tax inspector waiting outside the cubicle wanting to take his slice (so to speak)

I think it depends on how long you take and how important the thing is that you're supposed to be doing instead. If you work in an office where you've got nothing to do for large amounts of time and your job is to run about like a headless chicken and fix things occasionally, then I'd think it was a good thing to do. It would make you less stressed and therefore better able to cope during headless-chicken times.

On the grow-room angle, you don't want to do that in an in-service room because plants generate a lot of dust. But other than that, it's fairly consistent. You'd just need some lighting correction (Mercury vapor and HP Sodium, naturally) and the air handling would indeed be sweet ;)

Consider the toilet as a place "to perform boldily functions and then wash your hands" and you should have the true nature of the issue in mind.

Not that I have a freind who does it or anything but I thought that you had to have periods of darkness occasionally to get the flowering cycle things right.

Then again, I could be too high to make sense.

hmm, set up one of those office zen gardens.. put a small potted plant on the desk.. place a little diddy spade and rake in the pot. then every now and then start to judiciously prune said plant with crooning love and attention:)...

and you have areas to dry out the fronds of your beloved plant and keep them as momento's of how much peace and tranquility it is bequeathing you with its presence.

i;d say its worth a blag at least once:D
