I Am Teh Awesome

I now possess the +1 Miyagi Power-Up.

Longevitology [Chang Sen Xue] uses the human body to receive energy from the universe. Students...improve their health by sitting quietly (meditation) and making adjustment [sic] (healing). They can also use longevitology to improve the health of others.

I'm tapped into the goddamn universe, people! Who needs some laying on of hands action?

How long does it take you to read this?

30 seconds? Two minutes?

Well, everyone at my company has to take harassment training (required joke: and you all know i don't need to be trained to harass people) and if we run through the whole thing in less than 2 hours, it doesn't count and you have to do it all over again. It works out to me having to stare at these slides for upwards of 5 minutes each. And it's smart enough to know when the window loses focus (so you can't just keep it up in the background), and it times out if you stay on any one individual slide for too long (like if you left the window up while you went to lunch). This is agonizing. As you can see, i finished all of Module 1 and part of Module 2 in less than 15 minutes (required minimum time for Module 1 = 45 minutes), and i am "in the red". I swear i've read every word, and i answered all the questions right at the end, but i still don't get credit because i read it too fast. I don't understand it. Am i being punished for being a faster than average reader? Is everyone at the company being punished for harboring naughty harassment thoughts? It's aggravating and it makes me want to go out and yell at someone for being stupid.

Update: (i really did try. i even kept the damn pages up and stared at them while i was on a 45 minute conference call).
