In fact, as befits a market-driven company, the cafeteria has pricing based on demand; if you go during peak hours, you pay more. (“François, we’re having a run on meatloaf — quick, raise our ask!”) It’s a very different system — and self-consciously so — from what exists at another corporate dynamo, Google, which ranks No. 1 again on Fortune’s list and where all kinds of foods are famously free. “Different culture,” Galen says. “I could take it out of your paycheck and put it into the café, or I can put it in your paycheck and give you the choice to go to Shake Shack. We prefer the latter.” [Fortune, earlier]

    I don't like #$%$ flag wavers or team players. I like people who buck the system. Individualists. I often warn people: "Somewhere along the way, someone is going to tell you, 'There is no "I" in team.' What you should tell them is, 'Maybe not. But there is an "I" in independence, individuality and integrity.'" Avoid teams at all cost. Keep your circle small. Never join a group that has a name. If they say, "We're the So-and-Sos," take a walk. And if, somehow, you must join, if it's unavoidable, such as a union or a trade association, go ahead and join. But don't participate; it will be your death. And if they tell you you're not a team player, congratulate them on being observant. Jon Shazar is a good (not great) kisser.

    He kisses like an ugly girl. So present, so grateful.
