This little clip from Charlie Chaplins MODERN TIMES, is funny, but if you've ever worked on an assembly line, it might not be. Its de-humanizing in a way having a man or woman stand in one place for a whole shift of eight hours doing nothing more than adding a part or screwing in the screws, doing one very small part repetitiously. I did once for three months and I don't recommend it. If you are a thinking person, and how could you not be, standing in one place for eight hours doing one task over, and over, and over, you have to wonder, Isn't there something more fulfilling I can dedicate my life to?
