THINGS I HEAR DURING A DINNER WITH ASTRONOMY ENGINEERS THAT NORMAL PEOPLE SHOULD KNOW.
Some of my friends have worked in one of the most amazing astronomic centers. They all work for startups in San Francisco now. So now that they are normal again, weather decided to explain how astronomy fucks our lives sometimes. And we do not know about it.
- •"Cosmic rays happen to YOU too. So when your photoshop suddenly shuts down (usually before saving your best creation) there's a real chance that it was a cosmic ray sent by they universe (and not layer 8 -which is basically you-). " Think about it next time you don't find a reason for losing work.
- •Layer 9: lawyers. (That's their kind of jokes. I actually find it funny. You need to understand layer 8 first).
- •"Cosmic rays are also responsible for your email landing in an address you didn't want. This is currently happening thousands of times a day". Problem is that normal bosses do not know this fact. You might sound weird if you use this as an excuse but it's real.
- •"Since I started in this new company last year (Internet company) I've gone through anti sexual harassment training 3 times. It's kind of weird since everyone tells me it's an annual training"
- •To be continued. (Still at dinner)
