    Where I work, I seem to get three levels of password security. The worst are the ones who write their password on a post-it note and stick it on the monitor. The second level are the ones who write it in a notepad and put it in their desk drawer. The really smart ones write it in a notepad and put that in their bottom drawer. Sometimes I wonder why I bother.

    Oh, how long can trusty Cadet Stimpy hold out? How can he possibly resist the diabolical urge to push the button that could erase his very existence? Will his tortured mind give in to its uncontrollable desires?
    Can he resist the temptation to push the button that, even now, beckons him even closer? Will he succumb to the maddening urge to eradicate history? At the MERE...PUSH...of a SINGLE...BUTTON! The beeyootiful SHINY button! The jolly CANDY-LIKE button! Will he hold out, folks? CAN he hold out?

    I have to change my passwprd once a month

    You think you have it bad?!

    I have to piss into a cup and pour it into a biometric reader next to my thin-client to get access in the morning. Sometimes if I splash too much, I end up spreading pee germs all over the keyboard - and all the other hardware in the office. I think it's all just a scam by my employer to gather plentiful urine for operating the urine batteries they're sure to start including in their bulky laptops.

    Too bad they didn't use sperm biometric tests, instead. I mean, you don't always have to piss, but you surely always have to.... you know...
