That moment when you are alone at work in your office and wanting to kill time with a quick fap.

Who cares, the only important thing is he gets some cheap square tops and sends one to me. He sold his FD and wouldn't ship me his spare awesome parts. DK owes me a square top now.

BTW, DK. I remember the first time someone actually came to visit me while I was away at college. Enjoy your time off (and ship me a square top on the cheap)!

She says she works for the FBI. It's not exactly OPSEC or anything. Not like their IDs are classified or anything. It's the same as if I were to say I'm in the military. Stating your profession is no security risk. Unless of course you divulge specific information, which she hasn't.

haha.. I've still got a few parts, but too big and heavy to ship. Sorry brohomo.

As for the squaretops, they should be coming in this week, and I'll package them up and let you know once they get here.

Aargh...

You think some of the discussions at CR can be frustrating? Try being on a standards committee.

Cost-benefit analysis and risk management: it's not just for your portfolio.


If you need a better job than your current one, and know that drug screening is prevalant among most corporate employers these days, it might be worth doing what is in your power to bump that percentage up.

What's the upside to doing whatever it was that dropped you from 99.9% to 95%? What's the downside?

If the downside significantly outweighs the upside, you should consider altering your behavior - even if temporarily.

Well, yeah. I was drunk, it was a few hits, and it was 2 weeks ago. I'm not a smoker by any means, so surely in 2 weeks time it has left my system. I also wasn't planning on promising job prospects THIS soon. I was looking at months out, not weeks out. So it sort of sneaked up on me. Oh well, what can ya do.

Hookers and Blow.

Blow is out of your system in 3 days, hookers might leave herpes which is the gift that keeps on giving.

Am I the only person alive who has never smoked pot? Or done any recreational drugs. Hell, I've never smoked a cigarette and I don't drink, either.

I've drunk my fair share, and while I haven't smoked cigarettes since junior high, I do enjoy the occasional cigar. Otherwise, nothing. I know that makes me a square or whatever, but I've never felt the desire.

I have never smoked pot. I have had a girl tease me about it by blowing pot smoke in my face before though.

And I have had a couple cigars here and there. I do drink. (Like a king thread)

And this.


Pot holds no allure for me. If I thought or moved and slower, I'd be in a coma.

This weed that you took- was it a crystalline whitish substance that came in a little plastic vial by any chance?

Being GREEN





Checking out at the store, the young cashier suggested to the older woman, that she should bring her own grocery bags because plastic bags weren't good for the environment.



The woman apologized and explained, "We didn't have this green thing back in my earlier days."



The young clerk responded, "That's our problem today. Your generation did not care enough to save our environment f or future generations."

She was right -- our generation didn't have the green thing in its day.



Back then, we returned milk bottles, soda bottles and beer bottles to the store. The store sent them back to the plant to be washed and sterilized and refilled, so it could use the same bottles over and over. So they really were truely recycled.



But we didn't have the green thing back in our day.



Grocery stores bagged our groceries in brown paper bags, that we reused for numerous things, most memorable besides household garbage bags, was the use of brown paper bags as book covers for our schoolbooks. This was to ensure that public property, (the books provided for our use by the school) was not defaced by our scribblings. Then we were able to personalize our books on the brown paper bags.

But too bad we didn't do the green thing back then.



We walked up stairs, because we didn't have an escalator in every store and office building. We walked to the grocery store and didn't climb into a 300-horsepower machine every time we had to go two blocks.



But she was right. We didn't have the green thing in our day.



Back then, we washed the baby's diapers because we didn't have the throwaway kind. We dried clothes on a line, not in an energy-gobbling machine burning up 220 volts -- wind and solar power really did dry our clothes back in our early days. Kids got hand-me-down clothes from their brothers or sisters, not always brand-new clothing.



But that young lady is right; we didn't have the green thing back in our day.



Back then, we had one TV, or radio, in the house -- not a TV in every room. And the TV had a small screen the size of a handkerchief (remember them?), not a screen the size of the state of Montana. In the kitchen, we blended and stirred by hand because we didn't have electric machines to do everything for us. When we packaged a fragile item to send in the mail, we used wadded up old newspapers to cushion it, not Styrofoam or plastic bubble wrap. Back then, we didn't fire up an engine and burn gasoline just to cut the lawn. We used a push mower that ran on human power. We exercised by working so we didn't need to go to a health club to run on treadmills that operate on electricity.



But she's right; we didn't have the green thing back then.



We drank from a fountain when we were thirsty instead of using a cup or a plastic bottle every time we had a drink of water. We refilled writing pens with ink instead of buying a new pen, and we replaced the razor blades in a razor instead of throwing away the whole razor just because the blade got dull.



But we didn't have the green thing back then.



Back then, people took the streetcar or a bus and kids rode their bikes to school or walked instead of turning their moms into a 24-hour taxi service. We had one electrical outlet in a room, not an entire bank of sockets to power a dozen appliances. And we didn't need a computerized gadget to receive a signal beamed from satellites 23,000 miles out in space in order to find the nearest burger joint.

But isn't it sad the current generation laments how wasteful we old folks were just because we didn't have the green thing back then?
