Pining for the good old days?
Let's remember some golden moments.
Alchohol onsite. Old Rad Lab punch made from reagent-grade ethanol. Popular until someone barfed in the stairwell in B-111.
A Lab Director trying to hop the fence and getting caught.
The Star supercomputer.
One of the lead scientists in MFE who was a notorious womaniser and loved to flim-flam Congress with outrageous promises about progress on fusion.
Using bolts and a steel girdle to "repair" quake-damaged buildings. Ones with asbestos in them.
Not knowing how to operate high-power switches properly ends up launching one of the main lab transformers into low orbit.
Forged x-ray laser data.
Associate Directors openly defying the Director's new IT policies.
Having machinists manufacture awards for Directorates.
An employee getting approval for more disk drives to soup up his onsite porn server.
Credit card abuse.
Another Director whose testimony in congress indicated he knew nothing about existing computer security practices at his own lab.
The new "fairer" job-ranking system.
Off-site "planning sessions" at luxery resorts.
A steel trampoline for car-bombs along East Avenue. Two flatbed trucks blow through Echo-1 gate and get 3/4 of the way down the road before being stopped.
High-power weapons are too dangerous to the local populace. So LLNL buys 6 miniguns that will cut a car in half and run for maybe 30 secs at best.
Anyone have more fond memories?
