What Is It Like To Be A Bat?

From a corporate presentation I’m watching just now, in order to earn my daily crust:

“We need to create an ideation methodology across various stakeholder groups and provide full-circle communication.”

    Sounds like PoMo language:

    “Total presence breaks on the univocal predication of the exterior absolute the absolute existent.”

    Found here, of course.

    It was that kind of corporate speak that convinced me to quit that race and go into biz for myself. Any BS to be done, I gonna do it.

    We need to create an ideation methodology …

    Well. If you need an example of that, a pretty effective one I observe, ask yourself, “When was the last time I heard one of our Publicans use the terms, “Our Nation” or another formerly widely used, “Our Republic”?

    Been awhile I think you’d agree?

    Now think, and it shouldn’t be difficult, when was the last time you heard “the homeland”? Usually in some form of “threat[s] to the homeland.”

    __________

    And while I’m on the subject, when was it last appropriate to proclaim, There oughta be a law.

    Nowadays uttering that last is perfectly superfluous as in almost every instance, there already is just such a law.

  5. “We need to create an ideation methodology across various stakeholder groups and provide full-circle communication.”

    Is this corporate jargon about organizing a circle jerk?

  7. It’s either a circle jerk or mental masturbation. Could be all of the above, HJH.

    Whoa there Big Henry, you think I’d go with a concept word like superfluous if I were including mental and masturbation?

    I have you know I is a properly speaking, reg’lar hillbilly.

    Superfluous her ass.

  12. Robert,

    I have acquired a new habit — online duplicate bridge. All the years I have played in clubs and tournaments, the only negative about duplicate has been the people. By and large, bridge people are neither as pleasant as you hope nor as annoying as you fear. They are always worse.

    Online I compete against other humans just as a golfer does on the golf course: my personal performance is compared to the performance of my competition, without actual interaction between human competitors.

    This is accomplished via robots — each human competitor’s partner and opponents (at the online table) are robots. My human competition also plays with identically programmed robots. It makes for a level playing field.

    And best of all, you avoid all that nastiness at the real tables in clubs and in tournaments.

    That’s where I’ve been hanging out lately …
