Some nerds are orderly folks. Everything in its place, everything neat and tidy. For those of you in that category, here’s a video that will either frighten or intrigue you, depending on how accepting you might be of new ways to sort things. It’s footage of Romanian beer warehouse workers sorting pallets of beer by sliding and throwing open cases of bottles all over the place.
This raises several questions: How are there not dozens, or hundreds, of broken bottles all over the floor? Is sliding better than throwing? Will every one of these bottles explode when the hapless ultimate consumer pops them open? What the hell is going on here?
Maybe my wife will accept this as an explanation for why my office is always so messy. Dropping stuff on the floor or throwing it in the corner? My way of sorting things. (Is she buying it? She’s not buying it. Damn.)
