WTF   The Non-WTF Job Board - Powered by HiddenNetwork, it features some great job opportunities like:


"The developers at my company produce code that is carefully thought out and well designed," Dan Morrison writes, "unfortunately we can't say as much for the guys who built our new kitchen."


"I found this in the bathroom of a medical building in Dallas," J.D. wrote, "Apparently they've had a few Darwin Award attempts there."


"At first glance, this condiment holder looked relatively normal," Eric, "well, until viewed from above..."


"These screws (I guess?) came with recent case purchase," Tullo notes, "I guess you get what you pay for. Incidentally, the quality of the case itself was somewhat similar."


"Trial closed, eh?" John K wrote, "I guess no more beta testers were needed."


"I saw this on a trashcan outside of Starbucks," Eric L wrote, "I'm not quite sure how a trashcan is out of order... maybe it just needs a reboot?"
