To address Rusty's question.

Appling for leave requires the following:

An organic [must be Carbon-based] tub with a capacity of no less than 50 litres
50 litres or more of pure Dihydrogen Monoxide [distilled 31415927 times]
15 Starking or Royal Gala apples cultivated by a fertility or death goddess on the Isles of the Hesperides.
The original Sword of Damocles [accept NO alternatives!!!]
15 8cm by 8cm sheets of slightly weathered wax paper
An exquisitely sharp surgical steel pin
Quilling pen of pure gold [without plastic handle]
Soup ladle [just forged]

Method:
Mark 15 alternative leave dates in the wax paper using Braille.
Roll these up tighly using the quilling pen
Core the apples using the Sword of Damocles
Forcefully insert the rolled-up wax wax paper into the cavities created in the apples.
Add the Dihydrogen Monoxide to the tub using the fruit lable
Lob the apples into the tub of Dihydrogen Monoxide.
Use either the quilling pen, ladle, Sword of Damocles, pin, or your Ring finger to stir the Dihydrogen Monoxide 8 times clockwise and 13 times widdershins.
Meditate on the reflections in Dihydrogen Monoxide
Close your eyes, open your mouth, dunk your head in the Dihydrogen Monoxide, and endeavour to grab an apple using only your mouth.
When you eventually succeed, remove the wax paper from the apple.
The leave period inscribed on the wax paper is what you will beg your boss for.
If your request be rejected, the tub of Dihydrogen Monoxide, pin, or goddess may be used as a negotiating tool.

PS. Do not try this indoors or under a Blue Moon.

Or you could persevere, retrieve all of the apples, and put them towards some home-made apple cider.

But it will add to your weight levels and then you will have to work harder in gym :P. I suggest you take up knitting! Tribble could do with some nice winter mittens... :P

/Appeling for leave? Does this mean you drink apple ciders? :scratch:

I see you did not reject the knitting option so when can Tribble expect to see her mittens? :P

see, to my mind, i can speed up the mittens production process by finding a couple of suitably proportioned kittens, scooping them out and slapping the results on the hands...

so, if she can ignore the dripping, the smell,the pathetic mewling and the complete inability to grasp anything then, yes, i would entertain the idea...

Negative Joules, Puppet? Brian Dunning would want multiple lines of evidence for the existence of such a thing. When last i heard, he was skeptical.

No. You must perform The Procedure. Quaffing cider is not part of that. At worst, you may swallow enough Dihydrogen Monoxide to have it forcefully expelled from your respiratory system by one of the two goddesses.

If you take 3 kittens, then you'll have enough limbs for the fingers. It would just require a bit of stitching.

I am supposed to be proof-reading a document, but am being told to let things that are not true, or do not follow, or feel cumbersome, slide. I don’t like this at all! 
I could not sleep with myself if I had to write what I am reading.

Add to this the people I have gabbling and giggling nearby. I would rather be doing this at home.

People have been barbecued for less. :x :evil:

Then it sounds to me that you are not proof reading, you are just reading? :? Just spell checking? The MS paper clip can do that too.

Ooops....sorry....got my terminology wrong.

The manager gave the 72 page document to me and told me to check it for spelling and grammar.
:oops:

I have issues with the way it is written as well as some of the claims being made. And I have had it up to here with all this ultra mega-size bold font BEE [or BBBEE in some parts of the document] and HDI stuff!!! :evil:

I feel your pain, inaccuracies, deliberate or not, gives you so much trouble in the long run, that it just not worth it IMO. But try telling that to other people.

OCD much?
Check the spelling and grammar as instructed and get it over with. You're just causing yourself needless frustration trying to fix it.

And then, glancing at him/her in a disapproving fashion of course, mention to your boss that you have severe reservations regarding the quality of work that had gone into the original doc.

A surprising amount of modern pseudoscience is coming out of the environmental sector. Perhaps it should not be so surprising given that environmentalism is political rather than scientific.
