The process illustrated here is an actual filing format, known as the “pile system.” Unlike junior here, I have graduated from the lowly backpack to the open laundry basket, which can contain more stuff.
Like the composition of the earth’s sediment, or the rings of the tree, sophisticated archeological techniques can date the layers and I can find needed materials. Not!
We have known since we saw our very first “Zits” strip that it is based on our eldest son! Yep that hidden cam is focussed on him!
One of my principals once gave me a sheet about “Volcano Filing” because he thought it described my desk! He may have had a point! The theory is that when everything is piled high on the desk, like a volcano, anything that’s important will eventually work its way to the top and overflow thus being found.
Sounds logical to me!
