I am not quite the opposite of nice. I'm not rude, but I am blunt and direct to the point. I can be a dick sometimes .. especially when it's called for, but not generally. I just don't have time to sugarcoat things and dance around people's feet worrying if I'm going to step on someone's supersensitive toes. » 1/23/15 2:50pm Friday 2:50pm

This needs to be something that everyone needs to read before getting married. I may not be in the top 1%, but I'm also not in the bottom 75%. So while I don't have 16 mansions and 4 yachts to go along my multimillion dollar lambo, I have some assets that I have busted my ass for many years working and saving. » 1/20/15 3:34pm Tuesday 3:34pm

I was in the "biz" for a while. Yes, it is a shitty place to be in. But I guarantee you that anyone who is in any of the mainstream motion pictures, or on primetime network shows (basically anyone who is invited to the Oscars/ Globes/ Emmys / etc. is not waiting tables. They're living in multimillion dollar mansion… » 1/20/15 2:59pm Tuesday 2:59pm

I've been saying this since I can remember. Of course pretty much every single time it is met with some BS rant on why tipping is good. It is not. I worked in a tip job, so I'm not talking out of my ass (though you really don't have to have had such a job to see why it's terrible to begin with). » 1/15/15 7:07pm 1/15/15 7:07pm

Look, friends have many benefits, but you can't count on them to tell you to go into engineering or chemistry or be a doctor or a lawyer. Yes they tend to know you, but they don't know the intricacies of your brain and the way you think. You may like watching law shows on TV and find the concept fascinating but the… » 1/08/15 12:38pm 1/08/15 12:38pm

A) Tipping is a ridiculous practice that really just needs to stop. Just make the price what it is supposed to be and forget it. Yes, I know .. you can flame me away, it doesn't make the tipping practice any more ludicrous (yes, I worked at a tip job for 4 years so I've dealt with tax evasion, non-tippers, etc.etc.). » 1/07/15 1:35pm 1/07/15 1:35pm

The FBI (and government in general) is not the sharpest tool in the shed. I know .. I work in government. Don't get me wrong there are some folks with an IQ above the one of a mentally challenged sloth (really there are some super smart people), but those people are the minority. » 1/05/15 4:35pm 1/05/15 4:35pm

There's no way to avoid it for me. I look a bit middle-eastern, though I'm 100% european, so the vast majority of the time I get pulled to the side after normal check (or just before boarding the plane) as a part of "random" checks they do. Haha yes random.. ahum. It's just the norm. Yes, it's profiling, yes it's a… » 12/22/14 2:44pm 12/22/14 2:44pm
