Here's Helen Reddy singing: "Yes, I am wise, and I'm sure that it's not bait, just a ploy to increase supply! Ooooh no, not that! If I want to, I can do lo-gis-tics!"Everybody clap your hands.

"It depends on whose point of view and whose perception. "

Do you mean the aliens or the other primates?

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?

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

That wasn't proof, that was a movie.

It's fun to make things up, though, isn't it? It's how a lot of business and government policy is made.
