Loser's Guide to Life
It's funny how the word “collaboration” may sometimes have a negative flavour, while “cooperation” is usually a good thing, redolent of “sharing” and its mate “being nice”. If you look at the roots, they're roughly equivalent, but I suppose “labor” is harder than “oper-”. Operators are in charge. They know what's what. They're standing by. Labourers are down in the ditch, covered with smuts. Taking a smoke break and talkin' strike!
