The Internet Oracle has pondered your question deeply. Your question was:

> I can't send mail. Can you?

And in response, thus spake the Oracle:

} Supplicant, when they said email will be replacing the traditional
} letter, they didn't mean for you to wrap up your PC  in brown paper and
} try to force it into your nearest letterbox. The correct procedure is:
}
} Write the email
} Photograph the screen
} Use a scanner to scan in the negative
} photograph the screen again
} Send the photograph to the recipient.
}
} Then, all the recipient needs to do, is photograph the photograph of
} the scanned negative photograph of your email, scan in the negative,
} and print out!
}
} You owe the oracle a colour-blind homing pigeon.

The Internet Oracle has pondered your question deeply. Your question was:

> Every organisation from six to 60000 people needs a Brahma, a Vishnu ,
> and a Shiva - a creator, a preserver, and a destroyer. And you need
> those tensions simultaneously.... The problem with the average-size
> corporation is that eventually the preservers take over and stagnation
> sets in. You need to protect the Shivas, the destroyers.
> - Tom Peters
>
> Is the above true?

And in response, thus spake the Oracle:

} OK, first of all, you get a low-grade, non-fatal-but-non-pleasant *ZOT*
} for Failure to Grovel:
}
} *ZOT*
}
} Don't forget that little lesson, O Crispy Mortal, for I shall not be
} so forgiving, next time.
}
} Now, to the substance of your question. The answer is yes, it's true.
} Every organization larger than six people and smaller than 60000 people
} requires a Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva. However, Mr Peters reasoning is
} incorrect. He seems to have bought the DDU (Deities and Daemons Union
} -- member AFL-CIO) propaganda, or perhaps he's shilling for the Union.
}
} The truth is, the contract between Civilization As We Know It, Inc.
} and the DDU requires such organizations to have a balanced number of
} Brahmas, Vishnus and Shivas -- at least one of each. Union rules go on
} to stipulate that, since Vishnus are relatively unskilled and thus,
} easier to come by, an organization may hire six or more Vishnus for
} every Brahma-Shiva pair.
}
} Larger organizations are required to have at least one Buddha, one
} Allah, two Jesi (the plural of 'Jesus', of course), a Jehova, and
} a half-time Kilderkin; two Satans (if they're the wussy kind from
} the Book of Job) or just a half-time Satan (if they're the really
} nasty kind from the New Testament), a Cthulu, and a Shivering Jemmy.
} This was originally due to contract requirements, but has since been
} enshrined by Affirmative Action programs, which go on to state that
} one of the Jesi can be replaced by a Zarathustra in some states.
}
} Really big organizations require to hire at least three of the Endless,
} a Zeus, and any two of an Aphrodite, Ishtar, Ra, Isis, Bast, Sutekh,
} Quetzqoatl, or Bob on full-time or any five of them half-time.
}
} And finally, gigantic organizations, like the Global Internet,
} require an Oracle: c'est moi.
}
} Needless to say, you don't hear much about these antiquated quotae,
} despite the strong anti-quota feeling in modern corporate and
} government circles, because of the tremendous possibilities for
} disaster should any of the registered, card-carrying members of the
} DDU actually choose to strike.  Among other things, it's hard to get
} scabs to fill in for us when they keep getting *ZOT*ted.
}
} All of this came about in the last century or so, when it was realized
} that Deities were increasing on the unemployment lines because of
} a lack of serious worshippers. After a series of crises with the
} management of various corporations, the Deities and Daemons began
} to organize collective bargaining units which eventually united into
} the DDU.
}
} Most corporations recognize that there are significant advantages to
} having these entities on your staff - not least of which being that
} most of them don't need health plans, and don't plan to retire any
} time soon. In addition, many of them are hard workers, with long
} centuries of experience to help their companies prosper. I mean,
} look at Microsoft. You just *know* they wouldn't be doing nearly as
} well if they didn't have a few good card-carrying Satans, Cthulus,
} and Shivering Jemmys on their pay-roll.
}
} You owe the Oracle a better contract.

The Internet Oracle has pondered your question deeply. Your question was:

> O Oracle, O Oracle! O amber waves of brain. etc.
>
> What movie should I go and see this Friday?

And in response, thus spake the Oracle:

} Forget going to the theater! Rent films instead and charge yourself
} ten bucks to microwave a bag of popcorn. The Oracle is going to
} tell you what films you should rent for the next ten Fridays. Now
} just as wise Plutrach took my advice and always wrote his bio-
} graphies to be compare and contrasts of two people's lives since
} nothing can be understood in isolation, the Oracle offers up his
} film choices in pairs that should be viewed back to back in one
} setting. Enjoy!
}
} 10) Disney's Original Fantasia and Dumbo, Wow, anyone that some
}     how still thinks Walt hung out with Huxley yet never did
}     mescaline will have their mind changed after viewing these
}     two acid classics. The Ghost Mountain imagery at the end
}     of Fantasia is like a Brugel nightmare on film. Drugs not
}     needed, fun for the whole family.
} 09) Brazil and Fight Club, Brazil shows you the future of mankind,
}     Fight Club is Brazil with blood. In fact Fight Club wants to
}     be the antidote to the world of Brazil -through- blood. The
}     scariest thing in either film? Meat Loaf with tits! NOOOO!
} 08) Casa Blanca and Treasure of the Sierra Madre.  Reasons? I
}     don't need to give you no stinkin' reasons!
} 07) Mona Lisa and American Beauty. What is love?  What is sex?
}     You'll have no idea after seeing these two films, but you'll
}     spend days wondering why, in a good way.
} 06) Lynch's Lost Highway and Wild at Heart.  Reality as malleable
}     plastic that never really goes back to the right shape again.
}     Wild at Heart's turning of The Wizard of Oz into a seedy bar
}     and armed robbery film is disturbing to say the least. As for
}     Lost Highway, Mr. Eddy rocks! You'll never forget him.
} 05) The Ruling Class (with Peter O'Toole) and the Japanese classic
}     Ran. Ran is King Lear set in samurai Japan.  Too weird for
}     words, which is why it has subtitles, go figure. The Ruling
}     Class is the longest film you'll ever sit though not knowing
}     why you did so willingly. Combined running time close to
}     six hours.
} 04) Monty Python's Life of Brian and The Holy Grail. Silly to
}     perfection. You'll be babbling incomprehensible nonsense for
}     days, but everyone around you will be laughing. Go with it.
} 03) Reservoir Dogs and River's Edge. Is death a big deal? Ask
}     yourself this before and after each film.
} 02) Woodstock and Gimme Shelter. See Woodstock first, see how
}     the summer of love began. Then see Gimme Shelter and watch
}     it get beaten to death with a pool cue.
} 01) MASH and Catch-22. War at it's finest. Tell the bombardier!
}
} You owe the Oracle ten dollar and some popcorn.

And in response, thus spake the Oracle:

} New York (AP) World Panic Continues as things continue to disappear.
} This morning when the citizens of New York woke up they were greeted
} with the latest instance of 'The Great Disappearing' to hit the
} world. The left arm of The Statue of Liberty was missing. As usual
} no one knows where the item went, or why it was taken. The arm is yet
} one more item to vanish from the face of the Earth over the last two
} months. Scientists and police alike are baffled. Not only have items
} of great value, such as the Mona Lisa and all the world's panda bears
} vanished, but also items of note but no worth, such as Prince Charles'
} ears and 42 percent of the stoplights on the island of Maui. Panic
} grows as. . .

} [ Zadoc rushes in and falls to the floor. Zadoc is wearing an

And in response, thus spake the Oracle:

} Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. Sold our soul to Satan, have we? What,
