    Haha, then why are you here all the time then?

    Or... is it because you're here all the time, that leads you to look for signs of intelligent life?

    The work is more important than the job title but the entitlements--that comes with the job title--are important.;)

    No no, there;s a lot of intelligence on Earth, coincidentally all the Nadal fans on this planet are of superior intelligence.

    When we colonize Mars, i suggest we send the Nadal fans there so that the best of our species spread across the universe.

    No objections to this. But will they have enough bananas? :shock:

    The lower gravity means that longer bananas will grow.
    Also Mars is entirely comprised of red clay so the Nadal fans should be happy.

    Depends on the title and entitlements, say, company cars, long lunch breaks, entertainment expenses, having a shot at 10 am.;) It may sound glamorous, especially the flexi-hours but usually a 9-5 job ends more like an 8:00 to 20:00 (meaning the job that needs to be done are real stressful but challenging thus the willingness to log in long hours.).:-|

    I'm an Air Marshal on a tennis talk board and I charge you all with hijacking this thread for the last half dozen poasts.

    That being said, I pose a question...is it the "moon" or the "balls" that require constant adjustment by a certain tennis player???

    The two balls (not green or yellow, btw) are squeezed shut inside the moon, making the two balls a uniball.;)

    But it'll be easier to hit the moon with the low gravity on Mars.
