Got a slightly better position a year later running said machinery. 3 years later after 6 applications someone hired me to do an office gi...

On the outside you need to fairly nice and quick on your feet, figuratively and literally.

[quote]It's a super fun theory. I'm not hating on you. But if it has an orbit that eliptical, it'll be in pure darkness and insane cold most of the time. Nothing would grow in those conditions. Life couldn't exist on it. [/quote]

There is a theory that the asteroid belt is the remains of one planet when two bodies collided during the formation of our solar system. The "winner" of this collision was sent on a very different orbital pattern than the rest of the planets and would be very hard to detect because of the way light ...

I just quit a very good job with some great people. High stress environment. Going get 65% more money, and everyone tells me it's going to be easier, less stressful and it's a 1/2 mile from my current office.

Depends on what % of your Gross $5k is.
1-10% ok maybe if you really feel the new place will be better
10-20% maybe not. Struggling with $ can bring way more stress than idiots at work
I'm currently awaiting background and drug test results to leave my current gig with very competent peopl...

Standard scoring no ppr
I feel ok about it. Every TD Peyton throws gets me a point and the Bengals D is good enough to force a FG or Two. AJ is AJ
How do you like my chances?

Our league is dumb so this week is the semi final.
Standard scoring 4 point TDs.
Been riding Big Ben all year so I kinda want to "dance with the one who brought me" but Matt Ryan vs the saints is something I cannot ignore.
Big Ben vs KC in Pitt
Matt Ryan @ Saints

This strikes me as profound. He was raised by people who did nothing and cared about nothing, so he was not indoctrinated with any beliefs while growing up. He was a blank slate and was allowed to form his own opinions, thus ma...
