    The real question there is "why is a resume a .zip file?"

    Because the lazy woman does not want to attach 2 files but only 1.
    To me the real question is: "why attach a jpg when you want to attach a zip?"

    And yet it seems like much more effort to create a zip and upload than to drag 2 files onto the email.

    I'm willing to believe it's faked for humour. It's clearly using Gmail as the client, and sending image attachments always preview as the image. It would have been super obvious that they had attached the wrong thing.

    Incredibly interesting talk. Flash games were a big part of my childhood so this was a pleasant (and slightly bittersweet) trip down memory lane.

    Trolololol. I was thinking the beer Durboyse Blond leading to Durbuy as exact location in the ardennes.

    Game recommendation:

    http://store.steampowered.com/app/582500/We_Were_Here/

    Played this with Kybar last night and had a blast. It's basically a co-op "escape room" type puzzle where you use voice comms to talk to each other from different maps where the clues interlink

    It's free
    It's reasonably good looking
    It's got a sensible difficultly curve.
    About 1-2.5 hours long.

    Completely pointless playing it more than once, so you'll need to find a buddy to play it with who doesn't know the puzzles if you want to try it out.

    Happy puzzling!

    Slight spoiler (hinting content of one part of the game, no solution talk though),

    if you are playing with a non-native speaker, you might want to go through what chess pieces are called in English before hand. We had some difficulties at first, so DK had to go through the "line up" for me in English. I then tried to teach DK the Swedish equivalents until we realised that, perhaps, English might be our best option after all.
