There's two reasons you usually see guys standing around on jobs like that. Unions and safety protocols. I worked for a construction company putting new waters systems under the roads of an air force base one summer. There is absolutely no cross-task work allowed. If I was directing around a junction where the welders were working and they needed a pipe brought to them I would have been fired for picking it up, even if we had to wait 10 minutes for someone designated as a laborer to show up and carry it over. You get one warning when you're new.
The safety is the more reasonable. For some tasks if there's one guy working on something there's two standing by. Getting someone who has been rendered dead weight to safety is a lot of work. You may also need one person to hold the other back in order to prevent two casualties while they try to resolve the situation.

One guy was drilling a hole and the other guy lubing it with mineral oil. You need 7 guys in addition to that to make sure everyone is safe and the two guys are doing what they're supposed to do? Again, this is the problem with both unions and management. That's just fucking absurd. I've worked union gigs and hated it. Most of my family on my dad's side are all in the trades and only one works a union gig. The rest (sub)contract out because they can't stand the bullshit.

That NYC subway video was amazing. And what never ceases to also amaze is how city workers get paid for not working. Look around the 5:12 mark on that video and you see 7 guys standing around watching 2 guys work. And people wonder why it takes forever and costs a fortune to get anything build in a city. They need to start hiring overseers that just constantly patrol and make sure everyone is actually working. If not dock them or send them home. City work is so inefficient and corrupt it's ridiculous.

Yeah everyone loved Roddy. Met him once and he was a nice guy. I guess he was our generation for those of us who watched wrestling as kids. And yes, They Live rocks - as do most John Carpenter flicks. RIP Roddy.

Damn right AI is a threat. To think we can invest an alien intelligence with human emotions, values, and morals is laughable at best.

I too liked it, but found it a tad tedious and hated the night cycle.

I went Yenn - and banged everything that moved - in the first playthrough. I'll be a good boy and just go with Triss on the next.

I've never understood rating posts. It's zero indication of quality and only one that someone else agrees or disagrees with. So you agree with it or not, so what? A poll function would be far more useful.

And wtf? This guy has been shitting in those holes...for a decade??? Jesus, fire your head of security already and get someone competent. Hell, he's probably the one doing it. That sort of incompetence boggles the mind.
