4 promotions away from running Google

It's true that Google has less hierarchy and is "flatter" than most. In browsing the company pecking order, I found out that I could be running the show in just 4 promotions! This is even fewer than the 6 I needed to take over Bill Gates's job. Being on the research side of things tends to cut down the heirarchy significantly.

You wouldn't however, realize that I was so close to running Google from the fact that I was basically eating all day. No seriously. I was eating like all day. It's disturbing to the point that it's scary. I have the uncanny feeling that they're trying to fatten me up for some evil purpose...something to do with the cafeteria food or perhaps human soap.
