Okay, I so don't have my old Stems notes anymore, but I vaguely recall looking at assorted jobbie tallies for Fall 2002 and finding that they occurred with an average rate of ~1 jobbie every 4 minutes. --JulieWortman
Related Jobbie Incident 2004: It would appear that Jobbies have been immortalized via an E4 project in which Jobbies finally have a shape (an acrylic plastic rectangle with a hole in the center). The official name of the project was "Sorting Jobbies"; ask a fall E4 2004 person for details, but they're really not worth posting.
Oddly, has refrained from saying jobbie except once in the Fall 2006 Stems....
