In December 1985 J.K.Stögerer tried to characterize the various
"Types working at the Institute"
Type 1: The Workoholics
... Furthermore it is obvious that with this dilligence basic
human needs such as eating and sleeping are highly annoying
matters. Whereas the problem of food consumption could be
drastically defused by the consumption of m cigarettes and n cups
of coffee (m»n), the question of the sometimes necessary but
ineffective sleeping time can be regarded as completely solved ...
Type 2 : The Gambler
... It all started off very innocently under the cover of
pseudo-science. Chess and Go were introduced ...
... However, for some people the disturbing factor of this
desease might have been the fact that the games were played on
a rival devices (Apple) exclusively ...
... While the undermining of working morale could be stopped by
appropriate measures (removal of the devices), the gambler
connection struck the next blow: many games were installed on
MUPID, in order to invalidate the argument "rival device" ...
Type 3: The Dandy
... It is a fact that this type has become very rare, and some
people think that he can only be found during the recovering
stages of Type 1. This is revealed by his outward appearance:
unshaved, without characteristic features such as leather tie,
Lacoste or Fiorucci polo shirts, ...
... Anyway, it is said that an exclamation of a female member of
the institute ("Most of them don't even realize that there are
women in this world!") has caused Greenpeace and the World Wildlife
Fund to put this type on the list of endangered species.
