I have it on good authority that if we buy the JS interns cots they won't leave the office, which will result in us beating V8 faster.

Is this really a good idea?  "Crunch mode" produces bugs and burns people out  -- see e.g. http://archives.igda.org/articles/erobinson_crunch.php
True, but being able to rest does help the mind. :)
To paraphrase something said at my SO's old job when someone complained about the hallway lights turning off at two AM: the problem is not the absence of cots; the problem is that the interns should have gone home long before they get too tired to go home.

The thing that I glean from that article is that the interns should be getting seven hours of restful sleep a night in order to fire artillery rounds at hospitals. Can we add weaponry to a PO for cots?

it's only a bad idea if it's done without any humor whatsoever
Reassigning to default since I don't have a corp card.

I think trucker speed would be a more effective solution to the problem.

drinking a bit of v8 might help too.

Verbotten.  Remember what they work on and who their competition is?
To beat the enemy, you have to think like the enemy. Combine that with "you are what you eat" ;)
Maybe, v8 juice has plenty of fruits and vegetables, so it could generate high energy.

Just took your recommendation because there were cans in the office fridge. It tasted like drinking thick, cold, uncooked soup broth. I won't file a bug though since the picture on the front leads me to believe this is intended functionality.

This bug is full of idle speculation. Data would be much better. For instance: C10999904740719

Can we get some data on this to see if this helps?

Doesn't appear to have caused cots to appear. Was worth a shot, I guess.

I'm sorry, I should have been more clear in my software engineering communications. C10999904740719 is only a preliminary result. I will be measuring with more exacting standards over the next few days.

So, are we fast yet?

Reminds me of the time that I worked for the European Commission in Brussels, where we had a fully equipped studio with bed, shower and kitchenette. That was supposed to be for emergency purposes (heavy snow, train strike, picket in front of the building, ...) Also handy if you went out with the colleagues and missed the last train (or was to drunk to find back the station). Or for a good afternoon nap, like I can see in the screenshot.

But often the key was borrowed by various employees and their girlfriends for an hour or so :-) One day, some English journalists heard about it (The Sun I think), and stormed various offices demanding to see "the bed". They never found it :-)
Rest assured: we have no girlfriends.
