Ooh, that was pretty, and really amazing. I love stuff like that.

I am quite surprised to see the teardrop shape. It’s only recently I found put raindrops were actually spherical, and that they used to make round bullets by dropping molten lead from huge towers. But now it’s back to teardrops again. Science eh?

@Scildfreja:
Yeah. The annoyance is more that the entire purpose of a union is supposed to be representing the interests of the workers against the management. Unfortunately, the position of union head has a non-trivial amount of power, which means that you select for people who want power and select against people who just want to do their jobs. So you get people who are ‘professional union leaders’ and the union ends up with its own internal management with many of the same problems on the inside that unions supposedly exist to solve as long as they’re on the outside.

As Douglas Adams put it: “To summarize the summary of the summary: people are a problem.”
