"Unix programmers"

It's naughty, clever, and it has a point of view. And it makes the reader imagine what happened before that moment shown in the comic and what might happen after. It's rare to pack so many elements in one comic.

"Asok's snout"

W all know people who value form over function while being oblivious to how others view them. When you shine a light on irrational human behavior it usually triggers a laugh reflex.

"Brain golfing"

If you attend meetings, you probably spend a lot of time thinking your own thoughts while your coworkers drone on. This comic is funny because the boss is revealing his selfish thoughts.

"Synchronizing excuses"

Scott Adams enjoyes to mock common sayings. Often those little nuggets of wisdom make no sense whatsoever, but we've heard them so often they feel as if they do: Good things might come to those who wait, but so does starvation.

"Reusable presentation"

People relate to humor that highlights the selfish nature of people and inappropriate solutions to problems. If you have a job, you probably spend some part of each day trying to disguise your selfish motives as win-win scenarios. And your attempts are probably as transparent as Wally's.

"Old Johannsen"

Wally is the worst employee of all time, but he's likeable in his own way, so we enjoy seeing him get a win at the expense of the pointy-haired boss. And I think everyone who has a boss also dreams of becoming indispensable. It's easy to relate to Wally's glee in the third panel.

"Catching up to competition"

Keeping true to the major theme of Dilbert, this comic highlights the uselessness of management. If you've ever had a boss, this one probably hits home for you. This one works because you never see the pointy-haired boss's reaction, but you can imagine it vividly.

"Roll a donut in front of the cave"

A common humor technique involves juxtaposing something of immense importance with something trivial. In this comic, Wally is comparing his digestive system to Jesus rising from the dead. A dash of spiritual inappropriateness gives it some seasoning.

Dilbert

Dilbert is an American comic strip illustrated by cartoonist Scott Adams. 

It was the first comic that focused primarily on satirical office humors (such as the inefficiency of meetings, the uselessness of management, and the absurdity of office politics) a lot of people could relate to.

"Dream Job"

This comic causes the reader to imagine a funny future in which Wally will only pretend to do the assignment. Humor sometimes works best when one suggests what is coming without showing it. People laugh harder when they need to use their imaginations to complete the joke.

"Opportunities"

Management-by-slogan usually comes across to employees as ridiculous and condescending. That, in part, is what makes the staff in this comic so uncaring about the boss's house burning down. The ordinary evil of regular people is always funny to me. It's easy to relate to it.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Ghazala Begum

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
