[quote]Why leave software to go into pharma? Pharma is not exactly known for its stability. [/quote] Much higher base and the product I'm going to be selling really sells itself. Far more relaxing and for higher pay than I'm currently getting. And at worst, I can go back to software. Granted I h...

Resigning from my job tomorrow - OMLandshark
So, got a new gig doing pharma sales, and passed the background check. I have a manager of 3 months I utterly despise. His boss is cool as shite and lives in my area, to where I intend to hand over my two weeks notice directly to him. If I want my immediate boss fired and want to keep a good recom...

[quote]If they made a decision to stay away from each other it was probably done with the child's best interest at heart.

re: Worse Parents: The McAllisters or the parents from The Parent Trap? - OMLandshark
[quote]While the trap parents lied maybe it was out of genuine concern. Maybe the relationship was abusive due to struggling and being young. By separating they found their way and both became uber successful. Possibly matured through the whole process. Their kids were very well taken care o...

[quote]The Parent Trap was one of my childhood movie favorites .

[quote]But twice? lol [/quote] As I said, they simply did not give a frick about Kevin. If Kevin turned up dead, then their only major concern is what their friends and neighbors would think of them.

As far as my Top 10 who were alive from the start of Book 1: 1) Jaime Lannister- It's between him and Barristan really. All the Mountain has going for him is his vicious size and strength, while in overall fighting abilities, Jaime is superior. 2) Barristan Selmy- Debatably better than Jaime, bu...
