Fishtank Cubicle

Fish tanks as walls

Fish tanks would be the walls and sides of the cubicles. This would require a lot of upkeep, but more prestigious companies could afford it. Very relaxing.

(You could also put partitions between fishtanks, then it would not be see-through to other cubicles.)

       I think you may be forgetting about the, (inability to goof off because you've got a see through cubicle), factor. Would make for a great work environment though.   

       Bliss?

       Adding tall underwater plants, coral, rocks, etc., would provide a little bit of a screening effect, and offer a small amount of privacy. (though not enough to hide my goofing off)

       Are you really a telemarketer, [AMC]? You've done a lot of baking for a guy with an earphone... oh, and sp: intelligent ; )

       I would love this indeed but I don't think the boss would. From my years of fishkeeping, I would estimate that approx. 20% of my waking free time is spent gawping at my fish, usually started when I just happened to be passing the tank on my way to doing something constructive.
Still and all, (fish)flaky croissant.

       This is sort of baked. See link.

       You picked the right site for this. Joking aside, nothing that moves or blinks can be included inside a Cubicle. That would defeat the reason you have a Cubicle.   

       Visit: http://www.VisionAndPsychosis.Net and read: The Everquest Connection.   

       Movement in a concentrating worker's Subliminal Peripheral Vision can cause a psychiatric injury related to the human vision startle reflex.   

       You cannot turn off the brain system that detects movement and then instantly creates a peripheral vision reflex. The psychology involved is on that page, Everquest Connection.   

       You may remember that Shawn Woolley's mother sued Sony believing that Everquest caused his suicide.
