"Post Traumatic Embitterment Disorder" - instead of being fearful and anxious after a traumatic event, all you want is REVENGE!  Now, if that doesn't describe stockmen, I don't know what does.

Why I'm a Geek...Part Two

  Nothing could be geekier than being a movie fanboy, and I have to admit, I'm definitely one.   However, it depends a lot on what kind of movie you go all fanboy over - anime (revered by 12 year olds), horror (revered by anyone with taste), Tom Cruise (revered by queers and Scientologists), and ... well, you get the picture.

  So what gets my inner geek all wound up?  Three words, my friends ...


Yep, it's time for some more Bruce...coming this month in the form of My Name is Bruce.  A washed up actor in an Oregon town, mistaken by the residents for the movie hero he portrays, is recruited to fight a monster invading the town.  Bruce, playing Bruce who sometimes plays Ash...kind of like Galaxy Quest with a Campbellian twist.

Swearing at work is good for you.


Published: Today

F*** me! Boffins have found swearing at work can fight stress.

It seems foul-mouthed kitchen genius Gordon Ramsay may be onto a winner when it comes to boosting morale in the workplace.

The University of East Anglia said a study of leadership styles found the use of "taboo language" boosted team spirit.

Professor Yehuda Baruch, professor of management at the Norwich-based institution, warned bosses that any moves to prevent workers from swearing could have a negative impact.

He said: "In most scenarios, in particular in the presence of customers or senior staff, profanity must be seriously discouraged or banned.

"However, our study suggested that, in many cases, taboo language serves the needs of people for developing and maintaining solidarity, and as a mechanism to cope with stress. Banning it could backfire.

"Managers need to understand how their staff feel about swearing. The challenge is to master the art of knowing when to turn a blind eye to communication that does not meet with their own standards."
