Question: Why can’t LEGO do Star Trek stuff? Like, do you know how much fun I’d have putting together my very own Enterprise or Klingon bird of prey??
They’re all over LOTR and Star Wars — why not show a little love for a nearly fifty-year old franchise?
Of course, nobody’s stopping you building Trek sets with your own bricks, like this (as seen in the Rockefeller Center’s Lego Store, and award-winning at that).
In the US there are companies that take sick days and personal time off from the same pool of days. I had fifteen total in a year, and that’s regarded as pretty generous. Of course, if I actually did have anything that didn’t physically stop me getting in to work, I’d do so - it’s better for me to sit at my desk unproductive (and possibly infecting co-workers) than lose a holiday day.
Well done for reverse incentives there, free market capitalism.
