Daily Post: Sudden Downpour

From The Daily Post:

It was sunny when you left home, so you didn’t take an umbrella. An hour later, you’re caught in a torrential downpour. You run into the first store you can find — it happens to be a dark, slightly shabby antique store, full of old artifacts, books, and dust. The shop’s ancient proprietor walks out of the back room to greet you. Tell us what happens next!

We’re going to get into a long conversation that starts with the weather, segues through the items in the store, and ends with the state of the world today. At the end of the conversation, I’ll spend a few dollars on something I never had any intention of buying (but simply can’t walk away from having) and depart with a smile on my face, thinking it was a good day.

Daily Post: Full Disclosure

From The Daily Post:

A mad scientist friend offers you a chip that would allow you to know what the people you’re talking to are thinking. The catch: you can’t turn it off. Do you accept the chip?

It’s tempting.

Being able to tell what others are thinking can come in handy, particularly when you do work like mine. Employee benefits isn’t the easiest thing to talk about. People are naturally reticent to discuss personal matters, and they often feel very out of depth. This means that they’re apt to keep silent when they don’t understand something, or when they’re afraid that they might say something that the employer could later use against them somehow.
