[ Q ] Бритьё яков как форма активной прокрастинации


"Yak shaving." Our very own Carlin Vieri invented the term, and yet it has not caught on within the lab. This is a shame, because it describes all too well what I find myself doing all too often.

You see, yak shaving is what you are doing when you're doing some stupid, fiddly little task that bears no obvious relationship to what you're supposed to be working on, but yet a chain of twelve causal relations links what you're doing to the original meta-task.


Хорошее название. „Всю ночь брила яков. В промежутках много думала“.
