    @Believer7713 has the full getup. I kept tripping over the ears. Plus I have been using the wiskers for flossing. There could be a run on dental floss. Ya never know.

    No crane, no fork lift. Just a tilt bed. The guy tilts the bed up about 30 degrees and no they do not gently slide off. He then jumps back in the truck. and quick pulls forward. Damn if they don't slide off and keep sliding right on top of my stack of subflooring. Whoops... he missed his mark by 10 feet. Then he grabs a strap and pulls the stack of trusses off my subfloor sheets taking half the subfloor stack with them. What a genius!

    Seen similar many times on job sites. It's common to just dump them like that. Sometimes they go off neat, most times not. :D

    And unless someone decides to to a conference call, the boss doesn't know if you're sipping on a whiskey while you're working!

    My best Eastern Egg was when I was working for my previous company.

    I got tired of the boring progress bar so I had a fish swim back and forth instead. Cute... but the Eastern Egg is if a critical error occurred during the swim, the fish floated up to the top of the screen on his back.

    That's awesome.

    When I was at Douglas, I wrote a quick script in PROFS to demonstrate human nature to the guys in the IT department who were always complaining about users complaining about slow program execution.
    I told them to add a propeller or bouncing ball.
    They didn't believe me.

    I wrote scripts, that all took 60 seconds to run, but displayed differently
    One just said "Please wait"
    One counted down dots .............. along a line
    One was a bouncing ball .o0o.o0o. in one place
    The fourth was a propeller |/-\|/-\| in one place.

    They tested a handful of people. Without exception, "Please Wait" was reported to be the slowest.
    The propeller was reported to be fastest by most subjects, followed closely by the bouncing ball.

    That is interesting. I guess if you entertain the user the wait does not seem so bad.

    EDIT: I always have some sort of progress message in long routines.

    This was late 80s at Douglas. We were running on a VMS mainframe system with monochrome dumb terminals.
    Each department had a PC-AT (8Mhz '286) that was used only for charts and graphs, since the VMS terminals couldn't print graphics.
    This was in the days when programmers were even more ignorant of the fact that human beings were using their programs, so they were all about efficiency. And that's cool... every clock cycle was precious, but the users complained a lot less when one out of every few clock cycles appeared to actually DO something... the program could take longer to run but they didn't complain.
