Back in November the Sunday New York Times featured an article about stress in the work place and how those at the top seem to be missing out on all the fun. The higher up in the company you are, no matter how much work you have to do, you’re still chillin.

I gave my take for the Sunday Review, locking all the office workers in an office shaped like a Bug Out Bill stress toy. While the boss strolls out whistlin’.

I heard the same, perhaps from the same article.

Apparently the more "hierarchical layers" there is in the organization OVER you, the MORE stress you will feel daily.

The same can be observed in animal flocks.

Oh wow! It's been forever since I've seen one of those aliens... I was just thinking about them recently, too! I didn't realize they had a name... "Bug Out Bill", huh? As charming as I'd expect! <3

Well executed idea!
Although the little room with that one bookcase in it seems a bit weird.
It seems a pretty useless room for an office.

And that's why upper management can go take a long walk off a short pier.

Into a volcano.
