Mar 1st 2011 7:51PM This is all garbage. I detest the idea of such nonsense being displayed during something as crucial as a job interview. The interviewers ask this crap so when you don't answer "correctly" they can say you didn't pass the "screening process." It's HR creating their own importance, all pseudo-psycho analysis and empty prognosis. I mean, imagine this scenario, "Well, they fit all the requirements of education, experience, and had great referrals, but they said they wanted to be an Oak tree instead of an Evergreen! We CAN'T hire THEM!"
P.S. For me, it's Star Wars, Episodes 4 through 6 - and if you don't know the difference, you have NO right to ask!
Jan 15th 2011 6:47PM Just wanted to say I loved this article! Great to read about something positive for a change, especially when it comes to animals. My only gripe was your comment about the homeless guy; the difference is that the stork CAN'T go into rehab, go back to school, get a job, get health care and pay for the prosthesis itself. I'm gonna say it's at least possible for the human to do that.
Jul 17th 2010 7:41PM Oh, I hear you! Mine was basically the opposite; I'm an agnostic but I respected and appreciated my "friend's" dedicated and conservative views, only to have her abandon those "Christian" beliefs as it suited her. It angered me so much she was a cliche, just a front for her true self.
Jul 14th 2010 8:46PM this is EXCELLENT! I love it! The only problem is I would be making a total fool of of myself, repeatedly yelling, "I love you, Lord Vader!" and "Take me with you!"
Jul 11th 2010 9:28PM I had a couple of "friends" at my workplace; one was the boss and the other was a coworker (the boss liked her too). After a while, my coworker "fell in love" with a new hire and humiliated me by all but announcing who her new friend was and promply stopped speaking to me. I knew she had issues but I did NOT think she would pull that! When it went sour with her, the boss took her side and gave me bothing but sheer Hell. Now, I am much more careful and selective about having friends at work.
Jul 7th 2010 9:21PM You clearly have absolutely no idea what martial arts are about. The reason you never hear about such bar-room brawls are because most with such training have either left before it escalated or was able to stop it from happening in the first place. (or those who got their butts kicked stay mute!) Sure, some dojo's sell their belts, but it's just as with everything else, the word will get out that said "sensai" offers a price to graduate, i.e. lousy students. Sweetie, it's not about beating people up; it's an art, a form of excellent exercise, a literal soul-calming exertion, an intense study of melding the body and mind and yes, knowing when to protect yourself and -most importantly- when to diffuse the situation. Too bad you can only think of Bruce Lee and idiots like Van Damme. Hey, if you think it's crap, then go to your local karate school and offer take on the folks there! Or wait until they leave and pick a fight. The worse part about it, nothing will happen; they will flatten you without blinking, nor will they hurt you and you will think they're just being soft. _feels sorry for you_
Dec 2nd 2009 8:18PM it looks like a home-rolled cigarette, big and crudely made, which were *much* more popular back then (I should know - my parents smoke them!).
Nov 1st 2009 6:17PM I just wanted to say I agree with you, amy. I *know* I have been turned down for jobs because of my poor credit. And no, it wasn't for a bank or a job in security. It angers me off that because I chose to eat, pay rent and provide for my family instead of paying some credit cards bills I used years ago, I am suddenly not good enough for certain employers. That's my private life and has nothing to do with where I work.
Nov 1st 2009 6:11PM These types of questions are just utterly ridiculous when it comes to judging a person's qualifications for a job. How in the Hell does it make me qualified if I answer "correctly" to inquiries such as, "What tree would you like to be?" or "Where is the location of Jupiter right now in relation to the Earth?" Um, what? How about judging a person's education, experience and references? Being turned down for job because I don't meet *those* requirements is one thing, but doing so because I say I want to be a Wolf and not an Eagle, is just idiotic.
