  1. Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I went to the main office this morning and handed in all my company equipment. The HR Director wasn't there, but her assistant was. (he's a good guy). He was blindsided because he didn't know anything about it. When I started handing him keys and laptop, he looked confused. I told him I'm resigning a second time from the same job. Also had a chance to talk to the COO. He wasn't aware that I gave notice either. Or he was lying. But he had no reason to say he didn't know. At that point I was on my way out the door. On my way home, I stopped

  3. Barr told Congress that he'd be as transparent as possible within the confines of the law. He hasn't been. The law allows him to get permission from a court to release grand jury information. He hasn't. The law allows him to present the unredacted report to the Gang of Eight. He hasn't. The law allows him to release the report with no redactions for executive privilege or embarrassment to peripheral third parties. He hasn't, and it doesn't seem like he's going to. The law very likely would have allowed him to release the summaries prepared by Mueller's team to Congress immediately. He has

  4. 4 months later and things changed drastically... A couple weeks after I posted in December, the company I worked for did a reorganization and let the CIO go. The IT Department was split into reporting to two different VP's. Just when most companies are trying to move away from Siloing, they went and silo'd their own IT department Then on March 1st another Reorganization happened... The position that was created for me a year ago was determined to be not needed and I, along with about 200 employees, were laid off. Almost 11 years and just like that gone.. I've spent the la

  5. If you don't mind, GB, I'm gonna use this as an example of why conservatives are called "trolls" so often around here. KD is, I think, savvy enough about politics on the internet to know that there are multiple sites that aggregate presidential approval ratings to paint a much better picture of where the president stands. Here's RCP, and here's 538. This is obviously far more useful information if you want to know how the board compares to the "real world." Instead kd decided to use Breitbart, a source with an ugly history of racism and white nationalism to the point that many peopl

  6. Lone Star must be the unluckiest fantasy football player in history. I’ve played in dozens of leagues over several decades and commished many as well, and I can count on one hand the number of serious commissioner ethics issues I’ve encountered. Seems like he can’t find a league where the commish isn’t up to something shady enough to warrant a message board analysis. Poor guy.

  7. That's the thing that gets me. All of his followers (way too many of my facebook friends than I would like to admit) praise how tough Trump is, holding our enemies accountable and not letting them get away with anything (which is very questionable). Then out in the open he is afraid to fire people in person, always having someone else do the dirty work, yet crickets about him being afraid to do this task himself. Sad. Trump is a poor person's idea of a rich person, and a weak person's idea of a strong person.

  9. I ran a vending business for 15 years. Between 1995 and 2010. I struggled for the first five years, almost went bankrupt. (both the business and personally) From that point on, we learned the importance of money. It was about that time that I read "your money or your life". We decided living frugal was more rewarding than living on the edge. During the last half of the business, it was very profitable. We paid off most of our debt and saved what we could. Early in this decade we were recipients of three different inheritances. This allowed us to pay off the house, set aside money for college

  10. No - he is making a mess of the Mueller report - on many levels. It has nothing (and everything) to do with the contents of Mueller's report. It has to do with the fact that Congress is charged with evaluating the conduct of the president - and should see the entire unredacted Mueller report. Otherwise you simply have to duplicate Mueller's teams efforts - and that is not in anyone's best interest. If the contents of Mueller's report clears the president - then Congress will drop that investigation, as politically untenable. But, per DOJ policy, it is Congress who are required to

  12. “Rasmussen was one of the most accurate pollsters of the 2016 presidential election.” This is the second time in two months that you've attempted to perpetrate this lie. And it will be the second time that I call you out. The fact is that Rasmussen predicted a landslide victory for Hillary (322 electoral votes, including a sweep of Pennsylvania, Florida, Michigan, and Wisconsin). They were one of the least accurate polls in the history of presidential elections. Of course, you won't find that prediction on their website anymore -- they conveniently deleted the page. Bu

  14. A couple of points - there are no legal impediments to the Judicial committee (and probably the intelligence committee) from seeing the entire report. Yes, a judge probably has to sign off on that - but that should be the responsibility of DOJ, who controls the grand jury, to make that request. 2nd - without the actual results of the investigation - Congress cannot do its job - thus, if DOJ says that Congress cannot see the evidence, then Congress needs to develop that evidence on its own. As for what is in the report - I have no hopes - it is whatever it is, and I have said I will

  15. Jerry: Boy, do you smell something? Elaine: Do I smell something? What am I, hard of smelling? Of *course* I smell something. Jerry: What is it? Elaine: I think it's B.O.! Jerry: What? Elaine: It's B.O. The *valet* must have had B.O. Jerry: It *can't* be. Nobody has B.O. like this. Elaine: Jerry. It's *B*.*O*. Jerry: But the whole car smells. Elaine: So? Jerry: So when somebody has B.O., the "O" usually stays with the "B". Once the "B" leaves, the "O" goes with it.

  20. 1. Crazy - Gnarls Barkley (#2, 2006) I love how Wikipedia attempts to situate this collaboration: “The group created an elaborate backstory for the "Gnarls Barkley" persona, claiming to be close friends of Lester Bangs, Isaac Hayes, Gordon Gano, and lovers of Janet Jackson and Mariah Carey.[2] The character taught the band Kraftwerk English, as well as set up a meeting between the group Wu-Tang Clan and members of the Stuckist art movement.[3] In promotional photographs, the group wears costumes similar to the character Alex from A Clockwork Orange.” Oh, and the record is absolutely

  21. A few weeks ago I was listening to the classic rock station on the radio and "Jukebox Hero" came on. I proceeded to sing along at top volume, much to the annoyance of my 4 year old daughter. "Daddy, I don't like that song". Fast forward about 2 weeks, and I was drying her off after a bath and she was playing with her baby rabbit she carries everywhere with her. She says something about him being a superhero as they play, and I didn't think much of it. Then she told me that he had juice box power, and I did a double take. THEN she started in with a singsong voice "he's a Jui

  22. 978. Thomas Dolby - She Blinded Me With Science One just for nostalgia's sake. I'm 46, so definitely grew up an MTV kid. People like to say that kids back in the day spent all their time outside from dawn to dusk. I remember playing outside a lot, in the woods, pick up baseball/basketball/football, riding our bikes, getting into trouble. But I also remember plenty of time inside playing Atari, watching MTV, and looking at Playboys.

  25. Great call picking this fight. I'd hate to have to debate this on substance by providing clips or transcripts from Carlson and asking you to defend them. That would surely be a very difficult task for me, and would probably end poorly for me and well for you. Please don't make me do this.

  31. Man, do you think you might be overthinking this? Just go in and screw off for two weeks. Be respectful but dismissive to your boss, if that helps you feel like you evened things up some. Play some games online, surf FBG, write the SOPs as slowly as possible, and leave. If your boss gives you any grief just tell her you want to be thorough, and you'll get them to her as you finish them. Finish them the last couple of days and submit for "revisions". If she fires you because she thinks you're slacking, they'll pay out your two weeks (source: do HR consulting). You're in a no-lose and yet you're

  34. I think politics has become much like a sports rivalry ... but sometimes it’s hard to tell which side is the Raiders fans in that analogy. I think Trump is awful and his supporters are often misinformed about current events and insufficiently enamored of the rule of law, institutional integrity, etc. — but at least they generally don’t start attacking people for wearing the opposing team’s hat.

  42. VANDENBERG - Burning Heart (#39 - 3/12/1983) How well I remember it: 8 (Played a lot back in the day.) How well I liked it then: 8 (Liked it a fair amount.) How well I like it now: 8 (Still comes up for me on shuffle play.) A text book power ballad from a Dutch band that I thought was named after an Air Force Base in California. The song climbed to #5 on the Mainstream Rock chart. The classic rockers on the board will likely remember it. Vandenberg managed to release 4 albums in 6 years before putting out a greatest hits package 16 years after the fact. Around this time, I was
