You are supplying lunch...PB&J sandwiches...the only
difference is that they are making their own.

Seriously...the original thread started from someone
who already had the time committment...it was just a
question of what to do during that time.

most harried programmers...and BECAUSE they were under
this amount of stress that something as silly as this
actualy is welcomed at times. They ARE human, ya
know...and some of them even like to do fun silly
things once in a while.
