  2. Question for the racists

  3. Arnold Schwarzenegger said what needed to be said

    No argument here. I’m just saying that if tomorrow I moved to, lets say Germany, sure I would learn the language and try to assimilate into their society. However, I would also still watch movies and read publications in English. I think I could do both: learn the German language and culture, and stay in tuned with American culture. To think that someone has to totally cut themselves off from one culture (which is what I believe Arnie is saying) to learn how to function in another one is “naïve”. I give myself more credit then that.

    I hate lettuce. I prefer to get my crap form hamburger meat.
  5. Arnold Schwarzenegger said what needed to be said

    No, but if you wanted to get a satellite dish to watch programming in English I would understand.
  6. Tell a Joke Thread

    The Marine Corps found they had too many officers and senior enlisted men. It was decided to offer an early retirement bonus. They promised any officer or senior enlisted man who volunteered for retirement a bonus of $1,000 for every inch measured in a straight line between any two points in his body. Those applying got to choose what those two points would be. The first officer who accepted asked that he be measured from the top of his head to the tip of his toes. He was measured at six feet and walked out with a bonus of $72,000. The second officer who accepted was a little smarter and asked to be measured from the tip of his outstretched hands to his toes. He walked out with $96,000. The third one was a non-commissioned officer, a grizzly old Sergeant Major who, when asked where he would like to be measured replied, "From the tip of my weenie to my testicles." It was suggested by the pension man that he might want to reconsider, explaining about the nice big checks the previous two officers had received. But the old Marine insisted and they decided to go along with him providing the measurement was taken by a medical officer. The medical officer arrived and instructed the Sergeant Major to "drop'em," which he did.. The medical officer placed the tape measure on the tip of his weenie and began to work back. "Dear Lord!" he suddenly exclaimed, "Where are your testicles?" The old Sergeant Major calmly replied, " Vietnam "
  7. I Might Be Moving

    If you’re willing to move I wouldn’t let the relocation package be a deal breaker if I were you. Think about it, if you make the move you get the following: 1. more distance between you and your current boss who you think is an idiot 2. more visits with your in-laws from NC which will make your wife happy 3. a bump in base pay 4. a chance to look like a hero in the eyes of the company 5.an additional “raise” based on the cost of living difference between Nashville & Knoxville. (according to salary.com “the cost of living in Knoxville, TN is 21.6% lower than in Nashville, TN”) Whatever you fork out in moving expenses you will recoup pretty quickly. It sounds like a great opportunity.
  8. Verizon is hands down the most F'd Up company ever

    Whatever happened to the old way of processing credit card orders with the bulky machine that creates a carbon copy of the credit card info? Sounds like a good backup for when phone lines are down.

  10. Employment history checks

    Sounds like telecom. There have been so many changes to this industry in the last 15 years that I'm in the same boat as you are after working 10 years for a telecom company. I too try to keep tabs on whats going on at my previous job. It seems like no one I worked for (or with) is still there. If I were you I wouldn't worry about it. Companies now-a-days must run into this all the time when trying to verify previous employment.

  14. Lebron

    I take all the nice things I said about Flip back. He is an idiot! Having Billups and Rip on the bench for the start of the 4th qtr while the Cavs go on a 6-0 run was downright stupid. Some coaches jsut can't get a team to the next level. Last year he was given a pass since it was his first year but this year he has no excuse. I heard someone on ESPN radio put it perfectly today when they referred to Flip as the Marty Schottenheimer of basketball.
