1) From: Robert Pearce
I don't know if any of you enjoy Dilbert but todays comic struck me as
relevant, especially since I'm in the middle of writing (and receiving)
reviews (and just drank the last of todays ration of Kona)... ;-)http://www.dilbert.com-- 
Thanks,
Robert

I get "Dilbert" via email every day. I have to admit that this is about the
only one that I don't get.... More WHAT for us?

More bonus for reaching your goals.
The concept is that "stretch" goals are used against you to show that 
you didn't meet your goal therefore you don't get a bonus or raise, when 
compared to someone that did meet their stretch goal.  So this motivates 
the employee to lower their goals so they don't get left out of the 
(probably meager) bonus trough.  Asok of course is innocent and 
oblivious to this, so his high goals leave him out of the bonus pool.

Or set reasonable goals and exceed them - then celebrate with coffee and

Agreed.
But what determines elastic longevity?

  I went and looked it up but I don't think I saw one refering to
coffee. Which day's cartoon are you refering to?

Experience.
You need judgment to determine what goes too far and breaks the elastic 
band.  Too many overstretches and you give up.  Not enough and the 
elastic breaks too easily.
Plus I'm sure the starting material (character) has something to do with it.
