  4. Timmy - they hire each other: "A people hire A people".

    Ah yes, but who hired the first "A" person?

    *Groan*

    Yes.

    I see.

    Jacob - if you hire Snoopy, Snoopy hires peanuts.

    Cubicle - for real, it means that mediocre people hire sub-optimal people.

    Alpha and omega people, genuine high achievers, don't feel threatened by each other, so they hire each other: they would never hire mediocre or sub-optimal people.

  5. Hmmm ... does this mean that Jobs will start hiring other people who've had liver transplants, or better still, multi-transplant recipients?
