I just found a heinously strange link through Sahil Malik: http://www.dba-oracle.com/dress_code.htm. This details, in disturbingly exact standards, the dress code for his database consultants.

Let’s walk through a couple examples here: Tie - Must be conservative, nothing George Bush wouldn’t wear.

Grooming - Protruding nasal hair is prohibited.

No Neanderthal-style single eyebrows are allowed, and you should shave any loose hair on your forehead or the palms of your hands.

Perfume - Too much perfume is considered especially heinous when the stench is so strong as to cause allergic reactions or when the odor can be detected from more than 3 feet away.

But who are the Oracle consultants passing down these stringent dress code requirements?

Mike Ault

Don Burleson

Colonel John Garmany

I gotta say, though, I only wish I could draw $500/hour fees for my work. Hrm.
