Well, the first device drops a teaspoon of sugar at a time from a hopper (like any good sugar dispensor), the second looks and functions just like an alarm clock, and the third is 37.

Here’s some real ones I’ve been asked

the lightbulb question.

implement a quicksort algorithm for me

how many quarters would it take to equal the height of the empire state building? Ok, now whats the dollar value of that?

How many tv sets are there in america? How many of them are on at this moment? How many of those do you think are on channel 7.

Tell me about a law you disagree with and why? (is there a good answer for that one?)

and the most hated ones:

What are your values?
Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

And the best I’ve ever been asked:
do you chew tobacco? Do you mind if I do while we interview?

HockeyGod, you are lucky you were asked those questions. The idiot who interviewed me didn’t even ask me any of those questions.

He looked highly caffinated and looked like he hadn’t slept in a week. What the hell were they thinking to let the guy interview me????? He just wasted my time. God, I HATE stupid people.

Don’t they have any better people there? I am glad I didn’t get the job otherwise I would have been stuck there working under that idiot.

Bug Bash is a comic strip written and illustrated by Hans Bjordahl. Bug Bash is a comic strip about technology: managing technology, the business of technology. It's about project management and managing projects through the dull world of Rational Rose, use cases, and requirements. Functional requirements, user requirement, functional specifications, design specifications, call it what you want but it's still the bane of project managers. And when you're done with that, you can think about all the fun that comes with timelines, scheduling, estimates (PERT estimation anyone?) and resourcing until Gantt charts are coming out of your ears. Let's not forget the risk management in the software engineering life cycle. Maintaining the project is just as much fun, managing what was initially set out in requirements and trying to keep feature creep / scope creep in check with change management. If any of these words send nightmares to you, the project manager, then this site probably rings true with you. (Who Links Here?)
