you have lots of interesting ideas to share. Have you ever considered starting your own blog or facebook page? I'm sure that I and many others would follow you, it's just that I come to the Dilbert page to read comments on Scott's things and your multiple posts, as entertaining and thought provoking as they are, tend to confuse the flow a little.
Ha...nice microbiology-geek joke attempt....by an engineer!
Never mind that the NASA Asstrobiology PR team blew the arsenic life-form thing out of proportion and put the poor naive researcher in a bind with of a lot of smart(er) people breathing down her neck....it would have been more on-point if pointy-haired boss ordered Marketing to announce that Dilbert was about to release a software product completely made of hemp and Dilbert had replied "you might have well of told them it was hemp grown with As instead of P". Still, it was a good slap at Accounting, comparing them with toxin-loving lake scum. (Just kidding Accounting, I love you guys. Just keep those forms and, more importantly, those checks coming!)
