'Investment' banking has little to do with investments. The food must be cooked and assembled by an actual store employee. Most "celebrity" poker players are relatively bad at poker. Black boxes aren't black. I have unrestricted & unmonitored access to databases that contain name, address, email, password, and salary information for 200k+ people. While not terribly common, it's also not unheard of to have a completely unsterile set of instruments be used on a patient. And then we ship. What's something that is common knowledge at your work place that will be mind blowing to the rest of us?

Why do I need to sign in to read answers past the first one?
Quora is a knowledge-sharing community that depends on everyone being able to pitch in when they know something


That's not how the Internet is supposed to work.

This is a crap post, it's just Quora ripping off a recent reddit "askreddit" post of exactly the same subject.

Whatever Quora is, somebody went through this and cherry picked the top rated comments. Really scraping the bottom of the barrel, here.

Only a subset of books labeled 'Adult Fiction' are, in fact, pornographic.

The original Reddit thread; I'll drop a line to the mods to replace the link.
