Did I even read this article?
An AI researcher has taken time out of his busy schedule to appear in an ad for Yves Saint Laurent's scent for men called Y. Alexandre Robicquet appears in a video for the fragrance, which opens with him riding to his office on a motorbike. Of course. He then fiddles with his pen, while moodily gazing at a bit of code with …
Mr Chaudri, with that attitude to women, no wonder you must have to think this way.
That attitude applies from somewhere around 30M, not 300K. Once you get into that bracket you can definitely consider this:
Gold-diggers are a fact of life. So is the fact that they are predominantly female. It is simply a consequence from the fact that most money is with ugly, prostate case males above 50. Just look at Trump's cabinet's and their wives for an example.
However, in order to get into that category you should be looking at M per year, not 300K. At 300K$ an ugly fat AI researcher will find a matching ugly fat AI researcher. That is also a fact of life.
"Seriously, this is a total game-changer. Can I finally apply for a job at Reynholm Industries?"
Number one in the list of "Perks":
Unisex Toilets (12th Floor Toilets voted #1 in National Toilet Cleaning Finals)
FWIW, here's the rest of the "Perks"
* Staff Training/Coaching Sessions
* Vending Machines
* Regular Social & Team-Building Events
* Team Atmosphere
* Full Kitchen Facilities
* Spectacular Views from all Office Windows
Nowt special, but the BOFH will approve of the height of the Office Windows.
Nah. Farts are a normal part of digestion. Nowt wrong with farting.
Perfume, on the other hand, is olfactory pollution intentionally inflicted upon the rest of us by the idiot affecting an almost inconceivably blind vanity. In other words: It fucking reeks! There is no place for perfume in modern society. We have this new-fangled thing called "showering". Avail yourself of it.
Hollerithevo, really. Call me old-fashioned, but I very much like my wife to smell like my wife, not the way the marketing wing of a multi-billion-dollar-per-year couturière who has never met us thinks she ought to smell. When you think about it, it'd be kind of silly to marry, and then ask your spouse to stand downwind of you for the rest of your lives!
The perfume contained in most soaps smells 'orrible. IMO, of course.
Little girl's perfume is silly, just like most little girls. And there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. Adults, on the other hand, should know better. (That's not a sexist comment (little boys are silly too, just in a different way), but I'm absolutely certain somebody will try to portray it as such. Have fun, I won't bite.)
On the gripping hand, if we all liked the same exact set of "stuff" the world would be an excruciatingly boring place when you think about it. Vive La Différence!
Another perfume hater here; It acts on my over-sensitive nose like pepper spray, especially indoors and at the industrial quantities most people use it.
Wearing perfume is the best means to make sure I won't come anywhere near you, even if you're drop-dead gorgeous and the last woman on earth.
I find it contextual.
When dancing, women tell me I smell nice - because of the careful combination of showering and a light fragrance.
In bed, it stops me breathing properly so one of us is leaving the bed, fast.
So it's useful upfront then needs discarding for business. As it were.

Likewise. Mild perfumes - not a problem (much like onions - I hate the taste of them as a main flavour but like the background note that they add when used in small quantities.).
Full-on, in-your-face perfumes? That's when the remnants of childhood asthma rears its ugly head and my airways close alarmingly. In one of my previous workplaces, I used to provide IT to an HR office. I made every attempt to not go into the main office before about lunchtime as the volatiles would mostly have worn off before then.
It's the ladies. At school it was Chun Li and joysticks. A-Levels was science, so no go. At Uni, I wore a dress in class as hadn't started shaving and it made the other lads feel better. Now it's happening in France. I'm not saying I'm upset, just a little bit miffed. Should have practiced something else....#stillworsethanFB
