Walking is the best possible exercise. Habituate yourself to walk very far.
Thomas Jefferson (1743 - 1826)

MEMO FROM ACCOUNTING DEPARTMENT
It has come to our attention recently that many of you have been turning in timesheets that specify large amounts of "Miscellaneous Unproductive Time" (Code 5309). However, we need to know exactly what you are doing during your unproductive time.
Attached below is a sheet specifying a tentative extended job code list based on our observations of employee activities.
The list will allow you to specify with a fair amount of precision what you are doing during your unproductive time. Please begin using this job-code list immediately and let us know about any difficulties you encounter.

Good morning everyboomie.
You know after 61 years your mind starts to evaporate to heck in a handbag.
Every time you get less than 8 hours sleep a night you lose 2% of your brain's capacity.
Any time you get up at 3:30am you actually lose 3% of your brains.
Did you know that every day that you do not spend at least 4 hours hunting arrowheads 5 cubic centimeters of your brain dies?
That's really pretty bad.
That's like watching Dr Phill.
That's like having to listen to my sister tell me about her day.
My brain's on it's last cerebral leg.
Visitation will be this coming Wednesday.
I heard that beer is like a fountain of youth elixir on the brain.
Have a happy day all.
