  1. Based on the language you’re using, you’re not welcome here. Since you’re a continuing problem, this is permanent.
  2. The transplants have turned him evil.

    After watching the first episode of season 3 of The Orville, my gut is that it’s guilty of too long of a hiatus, too much money, and not enough constraints. Season 2 was a good ending place, and season 3 also launched with a Very Special Episode with no real consequences. Season 3 showed us that the only time you need to worry about a character is it the actress dated MacFarlane.
  4. Dude, your entire post is a trans joke. Nobody needs to make one. But I hope it goes well. This was a huge move, along with starting a new job - either of those things are enough to make life difficult, doing both is crazy. You’ll get there though.
  5. It’s also worth noting that the work is completely different now. Before I handled claims, now I have to explain to the CEO why we’re hemorrhaging money on claims that no other company would pay. And that’s not an exaggeration- I’m on vacation but when I come back there’s a meeting with the CEO and I have to explain how we came up with our numbers because I understand the scoring system better than anyone else, because I built it and I can read the actual formulas.
  6. I have a really good grasp on relevant pay scales, and I imagine I’m within $3k on each person based on my knowledge of the industry, and my companies pay scale, but I agree. At this point it’s more about encouraging honesty, verifying what I already know, and encouraging everyone to try to negotiate together. P has been with the company for 2 and a half years, she’s one level above me in terms of department. Knowing what I know about salary and raises, she makes 6-8k more than me. K has been with the company for 2 years, and was sniped from another insurer and she was giv
  7. After the contracts are signed, I feel like it’s a completely different story, so I get you.
  8. So I said in another thread that I have to apply to keep my job, but the good news is the permanent position will be a pay increase. Currently I’m the lowest paid member of my team, and there’s probably a $20k gap between me and the top earner, because we came from different departments and her department makes a lot more. So I want to bring it up to the other three members of our team, so that when we get job offers we can say “I know that other members of the team are making X amount of dollars, and I would like something close.” I know corporate America hates that, but federal law protects
  9. I'm not sure what things being online has to do with having a historical record. I've tried to think about it, but every time I do I just become snarkier and snarkier. But, overall, this is important for all of the reasons you're claiming. 1) These hearings are part of an investigation, not a trial. So there is a chance that important people could face charges, but there needs to be a public investigation so that we can at the very least hold people accountable in the smallest of ways. 2) This is huge political spectacle, but it doesn't have to be about changing positions.

    Fallout 76 was a bad idea, and no amount of patches or modding can fix a bad idea.
  11. Now I’m at the wedding and there’s an open bar and I’m drunk.
  12. For both of my parents I went with 2 Maccabees 12:43-46 Judas [the ruler of Israel] then took up a collection among all his soldiers, amounting to two thousand silver drachmas, which he sent to Jerusalem to provide for an expiatory sacrifice. In doing this he acted in a very excellent and noble way, inasmuch as he had the resurrection of the dead in view; for if he were not expecting the fallen to rise again, it would have been useless and foolish to pray for them in death. But if he did this with a view to the splendid reward that awaits those who had gone to rest in godliness, it was a
  13. That’s a great picture! I remember now, but Catholic light kinda works for both, even more if you’re actually in England with the Episcopalians/Anglicans. I’ll share thoughts in the morning.
  14. I normally don’t drink rum, but it seemed beachy and tropical, and that’s where we are.
