This just makes me think about all of the awful experiences that I have with multitasking. 

It is really hard to troubleshoot someone's problem at their computer while on the phone troubleshooting someone else's problem.

Nordic Combined, speed plus insanity
An IT pro who ski jumps with cross country skis will quickly learn why most X-country skiers try to do their "gliding" on the ground.

"Imagine shooting down an icy track on an iPod. That's absurd, you say, and rightly so -- if you really want to go downhill fast you use a Zune." Haha, well done, sir.
