Much has been said about work units. This project is always falling in and out of it. Families are started and ruined in the name of it. Work units has been the theme of many poems, stories, plays and movies. It has been portrayed in as many fictional scenarios as there are in real life. If the world knows so much about work units, then why does the world suffer so much from the lack of it? What the world calls "work units" is not God's definition of "work units". Since the world doesn't know God, it doesn't know work units either, because "God is work units"

I once knew a WU from another planet
S@H cut and blanked to use it.
The gpu with zing
Finished the WU in a ping
Now the database can go and store it.

And so, my fellow Setizens: ask not what your work units can do for you — ask what you can do for your work units.

In the beginning a Work Unit was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move.

A day without Work Units is like a day without kitties.
Always remember.....kitties are all Angels with fur.

The bowl seemed almost to sing with the sun, to chime with the intensity of its light, and cast darkly brilliant rainbows around the sand and upon them. He turned it, and turned it. They could see quite clearly in the fine tracery of its etchwork the words "So Long, and Thanks For All The Work Units."
