and after 3 days, he is risen!

If you are paying $20 for a haircut, I imagine people assume you did it yourself anyway.

Pocket change cost me my first and only black girlfriend.   It was in the middle of a roaring poker boom and I was flush in ways most men don't even bother dreaming of. Money, it was like dirt to me

Y'all think all of the TSA guidelines are necessary and worthwhile, too? This is how it starts.

 

WAKE UP, SHEEPLE!!

 

 

This i'm on board with. One fcking idiot with a failed shoe bomb and now we have to take our shoes off to fly or get into the local county courthouse. Preposterous

Ive never pumped then paid in my life. As long as ive been driving I swiped my card and pumped my gas.

 

I remember when AM/PM out here was the first gas station to allow debit payments. It wasn't AT the pump yet, you had to go to this island, select the pump # then swipe your card. I had just gotten my first debit card ever and we were on a trip to So Cal. I thought it was the coolest thing in the world to not have to have cash on you to get gas. This was the mid-80's and I am old.

 

My productivity today: low.

 

Put too much milk in my protein shake this morning and my fellow cubicle dwellers are paying the price.

 

But your posting acumen: High.

 

 

I do not leave my car while gas is pumping. If I did every person of Hispanic decent in the area would be filling up gas cans while I was in the store. I wash my windows then when the pump is done I will lock my car and go into the store. Though I too will move it if there are people waiting for gas.

Beaners... Whatever will be do with them.

Do the attractive women, good eats and cheap labor make up for the enormous nuisance they cause drinking and stealing and shooting their guns in the air?

 

I know a naive hipster who moved into a Mexican neighborhood. They circulated a rumor that he was a baby stealer, shortly thereafter he was violently run out whereas I go into that same neighborhood and am warmly greeted by the gang members and the children try to sell me things (which I always buy- that is a rule in life. Always buy whatever children are selling, even if its a herd of little banditos scalping you for a $1 for a ****ing bottle of Wal Mart water)

they did not have debit cards in the mid 80's

 

 

 

edit: yes I googled this after I posted it and yes I saw that debit cards were invented in 1966 and started to gain traction in the 80's but I don't care. tilt is a lying faggot. it was 1996 and that's the truth.

Pretty sure my company's founder developed the technology for debit cards.

 

You listen to Run the Jewel at all? I haven't, but the new record is getting some decent pub. Not really baby listening music, so I've yet to dig in, but I like what I've heard.

I've listened to it at least 10x today no exaggeration. was like Christmas morning checking Twitter this morning and seeing they released it early. I even had an event setup on my work calendar for Monday as RTJ2 day.

 

Shit goes hard. I flipped off like 5 cars for minor errors on my 10 minute drive home it got me so amped.

I can't think of a 2014 rap album I've enjoyed more. The new Logic "under pressure" album is really good. Sort of like a mix between Childish Gambino and Kendrick Lamar. Migo's No Label 2 is a good listen. Jeezy's new album. Ab-Soul. G-Eazy. I'm really excited for Nicki's new album. Schoolboy Q. Mastermind was ok. I enjoyed Gambinos mixtape he just dropped. Big Sean's 4 song EP was surprisingly decent. Kindofa meh year.

A link from that same page, Ford to spend 5b on reviving the Lincoln brand.

I think this is a good move. Those Gen 1 Lincoln Town Cars were the nuts. Rode like a ****ing cloud, horrible gas mileage and outwardly insulting to the poor, just like an American luxury car should be.

The real play there is going to be China, though, since certain American car lines are a luxury import there and we have no money here to be buying luxury cars anymore.

my company made mention of a statistic similar to that today--bemoaning that 'millenials' switch jobs once every two years. it may be that we all just have an attitude or commitment problem... or perhaps we have seen/experienced the shitty cost:benefit to being loyal.

so my company frequently touts how it's a "performance based organization" so they hate to hear things about how annual "performance increases" tend to not keep pace with inflation over the average. part of what got me my raise this year was explaining how staying with them for more than 3 years becomes a -ev situation and I didn't really feel like paying them for the privilege of working there. that and laying out side by side comparisons showing how it would take >3 years for me to make as much as external hire (assuming he accepted min advertised salary and got min avg pbi with me getting 2x pbi) finally got some traction.

 

point being. millennials, to their credit, have figured out that culmination of wage stagnation we're currently operating under means there is no reason to stick. the only way to manufacture a reasonable wage is a series of hops with the smallish increases they tend to include.

 

so now you're hopping makes more sense to me. but i'd still like to see you stay put for a bit strat.
