  1. My Resume was sitting un-touched on Monster.com for over a year. Last week I was suddenly contacted by two different recruiting firms that were scouring Monster. Same thing happened to a former co-worker of mine too. The economy is getting better. More jobs were created under Obama's term so far than during all of Bush's 8 years. http://politifact.com/ohio/statements/2011/apr/28/joe-biden/vice-president-joe-biden-says-there-were-more-new-/ NPR had a story on how some economists think we may be seeing the starting stages of another tech bubble. Money is starting to flow again. People are slowly starting to take risks. Service and Tech will be the first to recover. And once these people have money to buy things, manufacturing and housing will follow. Cheer up. Good times are on the way. PS. The first thing they asked me to do was update my resume. :-P
  2. That is a fake internet rumor. There was no such settlement. The case was thrown out. http://www.snopes.com/politics/business/matrix.asp
  3. So, You've never heard the term "burial at sea" before? Ever? Really? Let me explain how they do it: they throw you into the ocean, you sink. The more fundamentalist forms of Islam require that you be buried within 24 hours. I'm sure that before today, in the whole course of human history, Islamic people have died or been buried at sea. I'm pretty sure Islam has it covered. So, in regards to your post: "Sell crazy someplace else, we're all stocked up here."
  4. Unfortunately, that picture is a fake. It's three other photos put together. http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011/may/02/osama-bin-laden-photo-fake I have no doubt they will release a photo and video of the burial at sea. I hope they kicked him out of the copter from really high up into a swarm of sharks. Also, congrats to Obama and all the spies and soldiers. Could you imagine if this FAILED? Obama would be forever known as the president who let Bin Laden escape. He'd have no chance at re-election. Terrorists around the world would be emboldened. Obama took a big gamble and it paid off. He's got what it takes to be commander in chief. I'm more excited about the fact that they had 40 minutes to gather up documents and evidence. There are a lot of folks looking out their windows for a cruise missile right now.
  5. It's Fox News. What did you expect. Their goal from now until the election is to take this sentence: "Obama killed Osama Bin Laden" and substitute "Bush" in for "Obama" somehow. They'll just repeat it enough times until the idiots that watch Fox News are thoroughly programmed. The truth of the matter is that this was a HUGE risk for Obama and the rest of the world. He took it, and it paid off. It shows the man has the set of big brass ones it takes to be commander in chief of the best military in the world. Could you imagine if the mission failed? Obama would be forever compared to Carter. He'd have no chance at re-election. He'd be known only as the President who let Bin Laden escape. And terrorists around the world would be emboldened. He had a lot to lose and he lived up to his campaign promise to take unilateral action if presented with an opportunity to take out Bin Laden. (Which was something Hillary Clinton tried to criticize during the campaign by the way) So, congrats to Obama. Congrats to all the hard working spies and special forces soldiers who got the job done.
  6. Are you seriously blaming Obama for the Gulf of Mexico? Didn't Republicans chant "Drill baby Drill?"
  7. Video taken by me in the approximate geographical center of the ~200K sized crowd.
  8. Just to let you all know. If you have a Windows PC, try playing Allegiance. It is a multiplayer online dogfighting and strategy game. I discovered it a few weeks ago and I'm now adicted to it. The game is totally free. If you use Vista, run it under windows 2003 compatibility mode. Otherwise, you should have no problems. Download it here. http://www.freeallegiance.org/ Let me know if you start playing.
  9. The Greening.... San Francisco.... Let me guess. They are a jam band? :-P
  10. Just saw Zombieland. I have to say, it lived up to the hype. It was both hilarious and very suspenseful. It also has the best cameo appearance in a movie that I've seen in a long time. I can't tell you anything more about it without spoiling the film. My only critique is that they hired these movie actor clones to play leading roles. Here is what I mean. Lead actor Jessie Eisenberg looks and acts like neurotic indie actor Michael Cera. And lead actress Emma Stone looks (but thankfully acts better than) Lindsey Lohan. It is painfully obvious that these people were hired because of their similarity to their more famous counterparts. Anyhow, go see the movie. I liked it. It has some serious gore, and some serious laughs. Its a great date movie.
