    Nine out of 10 people thought colleagues who answered messages during face-to-face meetings were rude, while three out of 10 believed it was not only acceptable, but a sign of diligence and efficiency.

    wow, this is like that line in anchorman...

    Haha, I can believe that. I think that grammar and spelling is suffering as well. (I know mine has been suffering because I don`t use spellcheck or use proper grammar on these forums or in emails/IMs etc).

    "Nine out of 10 people thought colleagues who answered messages during face-to-face meetings were rude, while three out of 10 believed it was not only acceptable, but a sign of diligence and efficiency." well that adds up to 12 out of 10 people total, sounds like the writers of this article spent to much time checking their e-mails ;-)

    Ummm, so, pot doesn`t do anything to your brain. It`s a freaking herb. It just zonks you out for a few hours, and does not kill brain cells or eat up your IQ.
