"No, no, those are the cartoon animals. You can tell because of the bright colors." 

What about the black and white ones?

Hailey, 

 "I was once told to my face that i didn't get a particular job because "you are very qualified, but that job has always been held by a man and the industry isn't ready to see a women leading the charge."  Now that was nearly 20 years ago...do you think that would happen today?

That is horrible from every angle. :( You are talking about 1994, not 1904. They were already women astronauts and in other positions held previously by men only. Unfortunatly, what I think about that person can't be published here. And I am biting my tongue really hard. :/  

The fact that we are having this discussion means that what happened to you could still happen today there, and in some other parts of the world. Fortunately, things are a bit different up here on the northern part of the planet.

I am really curious about that case, what did you reply to the "person"?

Rich,

"Do you mean the aliens or the other primates?"

Both. The fact that they have a different way of communication, which humans are not able to understand, doesn't mean that they don't have imagination.

Rich, 

"Isn't imagination a big part of what sets homo sapiens apart from the other primates?"

It depends on whose point of view and whose perception.

@Susan, you asked "What is the reason why women are paid less?"


I'm guessing that it has to do with a combination of things. I know i haven't advanced as quickly as my male counterparts, but I also chose jobs that gave me flexibility over visibllity in the organization. At the same time, I was once told to my face that i didn't get a particular job because "you are very qualified, but that job has always been held by a man and the industry isn't ready to see a women leading the charge."  Now that was nearly 20 years ago...do you think that would happen today?

@Prabhakar, to play the devil's advocate, i would say that having a diverse group of people (by gender, age, experience, race, etc.) inherently makes for a stronger team with fewer gaps. It doesn't seem that people naturally create this type of team, though. How do you make it happen without enforcement? Or do we just give up?

I know First Contact is a movie, Rich. It's still proof of how humans would react in such case: In a primitive and aggresive way. 

Isn't making up things another way of being primitive?

Rich, 

I'm glad you had a good time cheking the board today. :D I am also glad you did and brought all these pieces of good time to my dull morning.

First Contact is another proof of the primitive reaction and welcome from Earthlings to other beings.

How nice, Rich! :D 

Lovely music. I'm always looking for movies from the 30s to 60s. I haven't seen Where The Boys Are, now I will. :D
