Brrr

Since heat rises, that's probably not the most efficient location for those radiators.

[Actually, infrared energy (which is what a steam radiator radiates) propagates equally in all directions. - Dave]

Tax Temp

Things looked like this at the Australian Tax Office until the late '70s.

A friend of mine had a temp job there, for about three months in "Records Purification." Every day, all day, he'd open a drawer and check the first file. Then go to the next, then the next, looking for misfiled records, usually non-consecutive tax file numbers. Imagine the unbounded joy he'd feel when he actually discovered one.

If you've ever wondered what an aquarium snail thinks about, try this job.

File size

I wonder how many megabytes of data are in these file cabinets.
