  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.
  15. Drove to Sarasota, FL. Took a couple days, but we made it. A little buzzed on some local rum.
  16. In the past, you’ve maybe mentioned being Episcopalian - do you accept the dueterconanical books? I have suggestions but I’m tired and a little buzzed.
  17. Make the main character gay. As bad as everything is right now, the 90s were probably a worse time to be a gay teenager.
  18. Jackson has been around forever, which inflates his numbers a lot, but if you take out every franchise or sequel, you're still left with $5,826,503,037. Cumberbatch drops to $1,848,662,148, which puts him not too far above Chris Evans at $1,332,859,147. Again, I'm not doing the work to dig in between leading roles and non-leading, because I'm not taking the time to look up each movie and make the determination of what makes a leading role. That sounds like a fun project from the data geek in me, but I still just don't have the time. I refuse to acknowledge any Matrix movies after the
  19. Or is that the weird part? A lot of that ilk believe that Trump is the real president and actors are portraying Biden while doing what Trump wants. But at the same time Biden is doing everything wrong and should be blamed for everything.
  20. I'm so sorry for your loss. You've shared so beautifully about Tina, and your love for her, that I feel as though I've lost someone I know.
  21. Oh, yeah. JFK Jr faking his death because he knew Trump would be battling pedophiles 20 years later makes complete sense.
  22. And then James Woods, played by Val Kilmer, starts doing it too and it leads to a war between the two that ends with a knife fight on top of the White House and then JFK Jr shows up and kills them both with an airplane propeller.
  23. I do want to see a movie where Jim Carrey plays Jim Carrey wearing a mask pretending to be the president.
  24. IMG_3112.MOV The woman isn’t related to me, but the guy she’s with (and is engaged to) is my cousin. Woohoo!
