  1. FBI Job interview

    A brunette goes into the doctors office completely distraught. She tells the doctor that her entire body hurts. Every square inch. She shows the doctor by first touching her knee. "Oww" she says almost in tears. Then she touches her elbow. "Owwww" She says again this time with tears flowing. She then touches her forehead. "Owwwwww" and she starts to sob. The doctor examines her and runs some tests. He then asks her "You aren't a natural brunette are you?" "No, I'm not" she says. "How did you know?" The doctor replies "Your finger is broken."
  2. The good thing about working for the federal government? It's almost impossible to get fired. The bad thing about working for the federal government? It's almost impossible to get rid of incompetent people for the reason listed above. The fastest way to get to where you want to be is to network with the people that you contract the work out to. Almost everyone I know that has retired from or left government employment had transitioned into doing contracting work for the very offices they left. Usually for large defense contractors like General Dynamics or Lockheed Martin. Defense is where all the money is and therefore the jobs with great budgets.
  3. Random Thoughts Version 2.0

    I like that it's Monday and I don't have to work. It's like a rerun of the weekend.
  4. Share your InspiroBot quotes

    I had to google inspirobot. I think I found a new way to waste time.
  5. Pool Safety

    All of the above and a definite on the pool alarm and pool fence. Anything you can think of to prevent a tragedy. Little boys are extremely curious and resourceful. The fence should also mitigate some of the homeowners insurance. A lot of people make the mistake of forgoing the safety measures in the winter. A semi frozen pool is even more dangerous.
  6. The Automotive Thread

    I had the 4.0 and the best I could get was 14 mpg with 31 inch tires.
  7. The Automotive Thread

    The YJ Jeeps were 87-95. All the parts are interchangeable. Personally I think they are the best ones. Plenty of parts still available at good prices. Plus, like you said they are very easy to work on. I had an 88. Loved that jeep but the 14 miles per gallon sucked when I had a 50 mile commute. Sold it and bought a Corrola for the gas mileage.

    Trolling at its finest... it's scary how easy it is to do this.
  9. Today is my birthday

    Like always in late to the party, Happy belated birthday!
  10. Everything Happens for a Reason?

    I unequivocally believe sometimes circumstances occur that are more than just random chance or coincidence. To put it simply, sometimes "fate" smiles upon us and sometimes she kicks us in the balls. I believe that there are occasions when her charity or perceived wrath happen for a reason. To push us in a particular direction. A discussion of the events that have lead me to this conclusion would be pointless since most of us are strangers to one another and it would be easy for you to just discount them to the ramblings of just another internet philosopher preaching his version of truth. So as not to enter a metaphysical or philosophical debate, I will just say that during the course of my life I have experienced things that defy traditional scientific explanation or understanding and said experiences brought me to the conclusion that yes, sometimes there is a reason why that particular event occurred. That being said one of my favorite quotes is "luck favors the prepared."

  12. Biggest bucket list item

    I like that but without a like button I can't make it official.
  13. Countdown to Star Wars

    I thought it was hilarious because I've actually heard guys at my old job having a similar argument. Personally I like both so I guess I could find it funny without being offended.
