There's teams and there's teams. I've been on many teams (in sports, in college and in business school group projects, and at work) where I couldn't wait until we get together and tackled whatever the problem was, and I've been in groups where I literally wanted to shoot people in the face with the only thing stopping… » 9/16/14 4:16pm Tuesday 4:16pm

Color me absolutely shocked! /sarcasm ends . We all knew the Fire Phone was a complete joke, and honestly if you ended up buying one of those I feel really really sorry for you. Even sorry-er than for some of my friends that still rock blackberries. » 9/09/14 12:45pm 9/09/14 12:45pm

We all make fun of the amish, but in some regards (like sticking together) I truly admire them. And this video kind of proves that. When was the last time you saw something like this by a bunch of whites, blacks, hispanics, or asians? Or jews, or christians, or muslims? Yup, quite literally never. Kudos to the amish. » 9/05/14 12:11pm 9/05/14 12:11pm

The world will still continue to exist? It's a silly question to ask. Don't get me wrong I do enjoy quite a few benefits of the internet, but it's not so infrequent that I think back and life in some (quite a few) regards was better without the internet. But at this point what you're asking is like trying to un-invent… » 9/05/14 12:07pm 9/05/14 12:07pm

They can suck it! As long as media conglomerates restrict shit in an unreasonable way there should be absolutely not a single shred of fuck given when people end up torrenting stuff. Period. What's next? You MUST be sitting on an IKEA couch to be able to watch ABC, but if you want to watch CBS you MUST have a leather… » 8/29/14 2:16pm 8/29/14 2:16pm

The US system at work folks. Insurance companies line the pockets of politicians who look out only after their own interests (and those who pay). You happen to be a (now almost extinct) middle class, or god forbid a lower class - well shit you don't even fall under the "we the people" you're just rabble, and as such… » 8/27/14 3:22pm 8/27/14 3:22pm

Screw it - I'll argue on anything anywhere for any reason. You want me to argue pro Fascism - I can. You want me to argue that both Bush's were not fucktards - I can. Anything that is not based in solid fact (i.e. the earth is round, or the sun is hot) I can argue for or against regardless of where my personal opinion… » 8/27/14 12:34pm 8/27/14 12:34pm

And that is the problem with (mostly) the USA. It's modern day slavery. If I have accrued the vacation time I should be able to take it. I can see the point of 90 days waiting before you do that, but anything longer than that is reasonable. And if the fact that someone else is taking a vacation lowers YOUR opinion of… » 8/25/14 3:43pm 8/25/14 3:43pm

I think a good chunk of us have always known that, but you know if you hear it on the media that these scanners stop terrorists then it must be true! How can you doubt the TSA? That's unamerican and all that. And the security theatre continues. » 8/20/14 1:24pm 8/20/14 1:24pm

I've always (well 15-20 years? since the game was released) thought that anyone running for mayor, or seeking jobs at the army core of engineers, or any civil engineering and city planning gig needs to have an extremely successful SimCity city to even be considered to apply (on top of all other qualifications needed).… » 8/20/14 1:09pm 8/20/14 1:09pm

I'm sorry but this list is silly if you do not include the best cashback there is https://www.fidelity.com/cash-managemen... . Are the listed cards fine? Sure, they're ok, and in "promo" situations they may be great, but for overall best rewards card ranking and not including the fidelity AmEx is moronic, or poor… » 8/19/14 1:59pm 8/19/14 1:59pm

Their insurance partner is crap (forget who it is). At least in So. California anyway. For both car and home, I've called them and gotten their so called Costco rate, only to find out that it can't touch my current insurances (with different companies .. so there's not even bundling savings that I have). Granted… » 8/14/14 1:16pm 8/14/14 1:16pm
