I typically don't recline all the way. It's really not necessary, and while I suppose you have a "right" to do it, I consider it a matter of courtesy not to simply spread myself out and hog all the space I can claim "right" to if it is just as comfortable not to inconvenience others. This exercise of restraint and courtesy goes generally without reward. I have noticed with some satisfaction more airlines putting emphasis on asking people not to recline when a meal is...
No 500-person company is going to have regular problems making payroll on time. By the time you miss a paycheck, you're out of a job anyways.

I agree, though it's not much more baffling than the popularity of any top-rated sitcom. Two and a Half Men, etc. What baffles me even more are the smart people I know who watch these shows. My own fucking father, who is as well-read and educated and cultured a man as you'll ever meet (museum board chair, world-class japanese studio porcelain collector, history wizard, business exec, world traveler) owns DVDs of this show.
The Svedka vodka "sexy" robot lady. Huh?
you know, you're right. I forgot you don't pay for property taxes, or maintenance and upkeep, when you're paying rent.
French doors where only one door opens are referred to as Polish doors.
