Anyway procrastination is the mother of invention. People will always find new and inventive ways of wasting time when supposed to be working. It's genetic.

Taking what we have already had...

---

Regarding inventive procrastination, I obey section 11 of the Intentive Procrasination Act 1519. This is following inverse excuses which demands that the greater the task to be done, the more insignificant the work that must be done prior to beginning the greater task. Section 11(a) of that 1519 Act states that you must remember to delegate the bulk of the work of the greater task to someone junior so that you can take on a strategic "project management" role. This is not, contrary to popular belief, a euphamism for "Lazy Git" - it is simply effective time-management.

Any more?  



I don't like 'it is simply effective time-management.' Any alternatives?

 rotfl  9V.

I hasten to add that my nose is not unusually large in real life; indeed, it was just the close-up and weird angle of that shot. Another part of my body is unusually big, though.

No. Do you honestly think anyone would be sad enough to post their real size on an Internet forum? If you do, think again (well, for me anyway). And it's .5".
