This happened about a decade ago in my first job.
It was a IT/Analytics services firm in India (I am from India), while work was interesting, the work hours were insane and folks used to work 12 hours a day usually.
Since we always had conference calls with our counterparts sitting in USA, we ended our workday pretty late, 10 pm was my usual time.
Due to this, folks used to come in to office late in morning as well, usually entire team would only be in by noon.
Management was not happy about this, so they went ahead and decided that everybody had to be in by 10am and if you are not then they will dock half a day pay (we were all salaried employees). Usually managers were supposed to enforce this, but they didn't care since they were in office with teams themselves, but occasionally HR would stand at entrance to office to implement the policy.
On one such day I was 15 mins late and HR at gate stopped me and informed me that I will be docked half day pay. I stopped for a second, thought about it and turned back. HR stopped me, with a shocked expression, and asked 'where are you going?'. I replied 'back home, see you at lunch :)' and went back home ignoring his feeble protest.
I actually ended up calling my manger and just took a day off.
After this incident, I heard similar such stories from many people and HR stopped enforcing this policy.
Edit 1: Corrected a few spelling errors, now that I am on laptop, I could see them! Also, thanks for such a response folks! My first ever post to get such traction, not that I post a lot! :)
Edit 2: well this blew up, I just got up and have been reading comments for last 30 mins. To summarise I think we are already in orwelllian future.
This was apparently datamined from the Switch firmware itself. https://twitter.com/centroleaks/status/1346969268785717249?s=21
Edit: After exploring some more I found Haddock Cove had a Deep Mirelurk King that lunges out of the water onto the dock in front of you.
The Far Harbor DLC really loves jump scares. Hermit Crabs are always terrifying the first time as well, then you know to double check trucks.
Just got an updated bulletin from our import company (Not 'new' news, just a situation report on ongoing bad news):
Right now, there are over 500,000 containers short in China compared to normal. This is affecting thousands of importers right now, as they go to pick up a container and there not being one. We need to expect massive delays over the next few months.
Last weekend almost a million containers outside of Los Angeles were sitting anchored unable to dock/berth and unload. We expect this to continue to domino into more shortages in Asia leading to massive delays in Asia and massive delays in the US.
Context: KNONO recently moved out of Black Rise to Genesis. We were blue to both Dock workers (DW) and No forks (NFG).
We reached out to the local russians (Trash Sky) for a peaceful transition, but did not get anywhere with that. So we started by bashing their pocos. In the first fight, they batphoned snuff. DW and NFG didn't intervene nor did they speak out when we spent the first week bashing pocos.
We hit Trash Sky athanors two days ago, and sent them into a panic because apparently snuff was unavailable and they went crying to NFG (6:1 numbers not good enough u know, or maybe its just a dead alliance?).
NFG invoked a defense pact and formed for 2nd timer. So now NFG is butthurt because they expected us to fight both WS and NFG with our 30 dudes whereas we called for backup of our own. So after the fight, NFG went over and cried to DW.
A few hours ago, DW reset standings to us and is now deploying to Genesis.
So my question is: How do you hype 1.5k players to take on a gang of 30 dudes? Link me that bs.
All salt in comment section appreciated. Thanks.
Edit: Thanks for the award!! I'm happy to see that my post has generated some small spark which keeps people entertained and logging into Eve. I am loving the arguments and criticism from all sides.

For reasons that are EXTRAORDINARILY complicated to explain, I need to find how many inflated gargoyles wearing muleback cords and other STR enhancing materials will be needed to fly a large wooden frigate overland. Most of the online examples for dry dock weight of a 30 by 90, 3 deck wooden boat are wildly fluctuating.
Assuming that the boat itself will have a full cargo dry weight of about 2000 pounds (including people, food, ect ect for a months journey), what would be the realistic weight of a wooden frigate made of standard wood? Does anyone have a good place to start as a basis for such a thing?
Edit: woke up to a mountain of text, and am pleased with this data. That said, what I specifically need is the weight of the ship itself, where I then devolve slowly into madness figuring out how many tribes of gargoyles that are enslaved to do it for...reasons. To clarify earlier math, the total sum of equipment onboard is 2000 pounds, not 2000k pounds. Just a small typo.
Edit edit: yes, only this exact, explicitly specific scenario.
Now that it has been over a year since kickstarter/launch, I was curious about how people are finding the dock. There seems to be little to no discussion about it outside the AMA which isn't helpful to discuss its actual use.
I'm hoping that Modern Warfare isn't neglected during the Christmas break, especially with the fairly lackluster playlist updates we've been getting since Cold War came out.
Shipment 24/7 and Shoot House 24/7 are a no-brainer. I know a lot of people want them to become permanent additions, I do too, but at the very least they should keep them up until the New Year.
Next, Winter Docks and Snowball Fight. Also a no-brainer, but this time let us continue to play both the Snowball Fight game mode and the Winter Docks map in Custom Games; they were removed from both the playlist rotation AND Custom Games last year, and they cannot do that again with support for Modern Warfare ending, or we'll never get to play them again.
Finally, the Sykov, CX-9, and Triple Threat XP. The Sykov and CX-9 are already in the game, they are FINISHED ASSETS, you can even complete the challenge to unlock them and use them in Survival Mode... so why is Infinity Ward holding them back? They can add them into the game at any time, might as well do it before Christmas. Triple Threat XP, combined with Shipment and Shoot House, would also allow us to level up the new guns fast.
