The Peter Principle is the belief that in an organization where promotions occur based on merit “Every new member in a hierarchical organization climbs the hierarchy until he/she reaches his/her level of maximum incompetence.” This may seem counter-intuitive, but if someone is doing their job well, they will be promoted. If someone is not doing their job well, they will not.
A 2009 study from the University of Catania conducted further research on this principle and found that the best way to improve the efficiency of an organization is to promote randomly. No commentary needed.
The future is here.
I learned today that the arms race between the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. was manufactured by the U.S. Department of Defense. “it is believed that the gap was known to be illusionary from the start, and was being used solely as a political tool”
At least we have learned from our mistakes. It’s not like we went to war because the idea of weapons of mass destruction was politically advantageous.
I take restaurant decor VERY FUCKING SERIOUSLY and the fact that this restaurant has carpet is disappointing and had a serious affect on the enjoyment of my meal. The service was fantastic, but the sound of their feet rubbing up against the carpet is like nails on a chalkboard. And all that static electricity?!?!
CARPET IS SO 1995, THREE STARS.
