  1. Some say the decline started when they took prayer out of school. To that I say bullshit. The decline started when they no longer allowed snot-nosed brats that were acting up to get their ass beat. In junior high school we had a principal named Mr. Washington. This guy was seriously bad news for anyone unfortunate enough to be on the receiving end of his paddle. Prior to his career in education he was a linebacker in the NFL. Needless to say most everyone tried their best to stay out of trouble.
  2. In 2003 she correctly predicted the bursting of the credit bubble Considering the credit bubble didn't burst for another 4 years, it's misleading to call this a correct prediction. There's an axiom in the business that says "If you're too early, you're still wrong." Many people got wiped out shorting the dot com bubble too early. Although they were eventually proven right, many were no longer around to reap the rewards of their foresight.

    Lousy Staff

    Ha, you were lucky. I've had the same experience except they didn't bother to say anything at all until I asked. Had I not brought it up, I would probably still be sitting there.
  4. From the book "Traders, Guns & Money": "If you arrive at a country and discover limousines waiting to transfer foreign investors and their investment bankers to five star hotels, then generally speaking it is time to sell. There is a second unfailing test. If you can't buy a good meal and a young, attractive woman for the night for less than $100, then it is time to get out." Words to live by.
  5. Maybe. Or it could just as easily drop back to $10.
  6. Say what you want, but I would give Ann the greatest two minutes of her life.
  7. Has anyone ever used 3BB broadband? I never heard of them before our development's manager recommended them as an alternative to TOT. They offer a 16 Mbps wireless service that would be pretty kick ass if it's all it's made out to be.
  8. Cash a check for the 25k, then go to the bank with the bills and open a new account? Technically it's not transferring directly from your existing account. Be sure to use the standard drug cartel member chrome briefcase. Maybe even handcuff yourself to it. I've always thought that would be a pretty cool thing to do one day.
  9. Royal Dutch Shell. I've worked on one of their projects for the last four years. Some of the Shell guys have been with the company for ages and are some of the biggest idiots I've ever come across in the entire industry. They pay high salaries and apparently job security is pretty much assured. What more could you ask for?
  10. snowball, Mudloggers are at the very low-end of the totem pole. Mudlogging companies don't really have anything to differentiate themselves from the competition other than low prices. That means these companies are running on very thin budgets. Salaries are negligble compared to the other service companies. If your nephew wants to pursue a career in the industry then as mentioned before an engineering degree is the way to go. Petroleum, chemical, mechanical, electrical, it really doesn't matter. The industry requires qualified people from all the engineering disciplines. However, I would recommend he stay away from petroleum engineering unless that is where his true interest lies. The industry is notorious for downturns. It would be better to have a broader background in one of the other engineering fields so he could switch industries if required.
  11. So the wife and I moved into a new subdivision in the same development that we've lived in for the last year. In our previous location we had a very high-speed broadband connection. It was just as fast as some of the broadband I've used anywhere else in the world. Good stuff. Very handy considering one of my businesses requires fast and reliable internet service. Never had a problem at the previous residence. Anyway, when we moved into our new house TOT had not finished installing the telephone landlines, but they were working on it. No big deal, this shouldn't take too long. I got one of those air card thingamajigs to get me through what should have been a couple of days max. Said air card is basically crap because it is slower than the days of the old 28.8 modems. Well a couple of days turned into a week. I was getting a bit perturbed to say the least. But there was still hope because we saw the little monkeys climbing around hooking up wires and all that shit. Wife asked one of the monkeys when they were going to be done. Monkey replied everything was going to be finished that day (this was about 10 Jan). Well here we are on the 5th of freaking March and TOT still hasn't established a land line. Can't get my supped up badass high speed internet connection until these morons pull their collective heads out of their ass. I am at wits end with these morons. I've tried being nice and I've tried being nasty. Nothing works. Is there any alternative at all? My business is taking a hit due to this. Not sure how much longer I can put up with this crap.
  12. Which one of these guys was the parking attendant that they claimed owned the place?
  13. Stayed there one night but honestly got so f'ed up I went back to the room and passed out. Was probably in the room in a conscious state for a total of 30 minutes. Well it took about an hour trying to figure out how to turn off all the flashing / blinking lights before I could pass out; but you get the picture. Have heard from others that yes it is a great time for a one time visit. Sorry but I don't have much recollection.
