Hong Kong Education Secretary Bejeweled


From the "Player of the Week" department comes this Straits Times story o­n Professor Arthur Li, Secretary for Education and Manpower in Hong Kong. The Prof was 'caught in the act' by some students during a meeting. Being the gamer that he is he even refused to apologize for playing Bejeweled o­n his PDA as "no constructive opinions" were voiced in the debate. Being the politician that he is Li immediately tried to point the spotlight o­nto the 'real issue':

'What is important now is not an apology or whether I was being disrespectful, but how to improve education with less resources,' he was quoted as saying by The Standard.
I guess talking about the financial performance of your company might not ease the anger of your boss who stormed into your office while you were playing a game. You, however, could mention that this kind of activity probably improves your productivity and job satisfaction. The latter may have worked for Prof Li, who admits being a 'meeting gamer' instead of telling stories about how his "finger slipped."


I'd vote for him.

Yeah, it's at the local Taco Bell...

Yeah, it's at the local Taco Bell...

Does that mean you're going to buy a ticket for me? There's no Taco Bell in Europe.

Actually they made us stop using it after that little accident with Thai food and that tub of industrial lubricant. We now have our very own bucket in the janitor closet.

Oh, now you've gone and got all fancy on me...

There's no Taco Bell in Europe.

Don't think of it as a bad thing. Consider yourself lucky.
