"Is SAP Germany's revenge for losing WWII?"

Quora folks have some fun. Sample:

This question shows a complete misunderstanding of what really happened.

WWII was just a decoy.

A cover-up while preparations for SAP were underway.

How do we know?

German inventor Konrad Zuse developed the first programmable computer “Z1” in 1936–1938. See Wikipedia: Z1 (computer).

Only one year later, WWII started in 1939. Wikipedia: World War II

Could that exact timing be just a coincidence?

Final proof: SAP was founded in 1972. Source: SAP (SAP Company History)

1938 to 1972 gives 34 years, just about the time needed to roll out an SAP system.


"Life’s Work: An Interview with Jerry Seinfeld"

Jerry has no time for McKinsey.

You and Larry David wrote Seinfeld together, without a traditional writers’ room, and burnout was one reason you stopped. Was there a more sustainable way to do it? Could McKinsey or someone have helped you find a better model?

Who’s McKinsey?

It’s a consulting firm.

Are they funny?

No.

Then I don’t need them. If you’re efficient, you’re doing it the wrong way.
