8 hrs are less productive, and I am able to get lots and lots done during a 12..the earth is flat because I saw the reasoning on another debate, and now i believe it to be true...and converse makes high tops..
beat that!

12 hour shifts are not better than 8 hour shifts because you get less time off work. I would rather have more time outside of work then more time at work regardless of which was more productive because I could care less about the success of my employer it just does not matter...plus you are more likely to become burned out and tired during a 12 hour shift than a 8 hour shift. As far as the earth being flat we know it is not because of pictures that have been taken of the earth from space

also converse is not the best shoe it actually is the worst shoe in the world...consdidering they are made by slaves in china...

beat that george

ooohh. someone thinks that they are the smartest!
well, i enjoy my job, and enjoy being very productive, and when my employer throws extra work my way, I accept it thankfully...
these picture that you speak of are photoshopped...I have a very reliable source telling me that the earth is, in fact, flat...
i will repeat my previous statement that converse it better because of the high top which provides ankle support. I've got very brittle ankles and appreciate the high top..
and Vans are made by children in china also...
Im winning....

Since you enjoy being very productive then maybe you should complete your work in the 8 hour shift instead of making it drag out into a 12 hour shift...by not getting all your work done within 8 hrs you are only costing your employer more money...

(these picture that you speak of are photoshopped...I have a very reliable source telling me that the earth is, in fact, flat...)

Can you please give me that source this statement means nothing to me...and should be considered pointless...

All I'm going to say in response to this is who the F#@! said anything about Vans?

OH and I am clearly the victor here my little friend...

You are flat too, you only perceive the earth and the universe in 3 dimensions.

all the pictures of earth are 2 dimensional images of a 2 dimensional object, the earth is flat, seeing is believing.

relax lady, someone will explain it to you when you get older..its like santa clause, when you are old enough you will understand. the copy and paste method is sneaky, and I think you get that method from logical master...watch out for him....he goes by many identities...
