I'm working on site today for the first time in weeks and have discovered that nature is reclaiming our offices.

@mike Yeah, we had a plant like that when I worked at the NFP. It grew prolifically.

@pelagikat I'm strongly tempted to redirect one of our internal security cameras to monitor it.

@mike @pelagikat get it to web serve the feed and email around a link to watch it in real time

@mike @pelagikat even better: set up a bot that joins all zoom meetings from internal calendars and it’s just the video feed of the plant

@mike I can't believe that my pothos, after about five years still hasn't grown that much.

@Juju @mike Do they only grow when nobody is watching?

@mike that also means an invisible hand kept watering it for as long. (It does not look like it’s connected to an automatic watering system)

@mike I’ve seen this film. Are there any solar flares forecast?

@mike should we be more impressed that someone has actually helped it grow that way by keeping up the water? :)

@bcshort our CEO lives just a couple hundred metres away and there's been someone coming in pretty regularly just to clear mail from under the door, so it's not crazy that it's been getting water. I suspect we're all watching to see how big it'll get before we come back in for good.

@mike
They staryedany years ago with our house. The plants has grown through the walls and now just kinda hanging there on the wall as decore

@mike
Woah, you have a very nice office. Individual desks? What luxury is this?

@ultem @mike Well, offices like that for managers are usually along the walls. I don’t know this building, but I’m willing to bet on the opposite side of the camera is an open floor plan for the peasants to work instead.

@mike she's doing an outstanding job give her a raise

@mike Rick Moranis steps into the office, takes one look at that, and goes "OH HELL NO" and books it for the nearest exit...

@mike

My guess for what I was going to do after the pandemic was over was to clean off the buildings...

@mike what a good job. let this beautiful friend flourish

@mike

for light and glory
