    cable box finally breaks on it's on accord, so I go to xfinity and get a new one. I now have no cable because they need to activate it and cannot remotely.

    before xfinity went digital there was no need to activate anything as cable was just a firehose. i'm ready to go back to it; I do not need whatever I cannot get without anyways.

    The Marriott Platinum dedicated phone line sucks now. The other night I was trying to change a reservation while driving and I was on hold for half an hour and they never picked up. It used to just go immediately to an operator, now it goes to a voice recognition menu. Fuck you Marriott, I (well my decisions but it wasn't MY money) spent over $20k with you last year. Give me a fucking operator and don't leave me on hold.

    So, I'm sitting there drinking an 8 dollar IPA, complaining about my bicycle situation. The rear wheel on my custom steel Ultegra Strong just lost a rim, and Mavic isn't even shipping anything until the first of the month, so I'm down to my other bike, the custom steel Ultegra Serotta, which I don't like as much, but will be forced to ride for 2-3 weeks until the Strong is good to go.

    Let's do some livin'
    After, we die

    And somewhere down the bar I just watched a local raise his glass in a toast

    I received a resume for a new accountant today. He was a movie / film accountant. Lots of experience in porn. I can’t think of any good questions to ask him though. There will be additional people in the room. Ideally looking to make them crack up laughing at in appropriate times. Thanks.

    Ask him if he ever worked on something big enough for the AVN awards. What counted as a capital expenditure in that context and how did they handle depreciation?

    Were they able to obtain an insurance policy that covered stain damaged upholstery, or was that all costs associated with the work? What was the cleaning budget for post shoot? Similar rate for orgys, or exponentially more expensive?

    Classy as ever. This guy probably expects a porn stigma. Therefore, stay away from porn. Cracking up the room at his expense would not be good.

    It makes perfect sense...until you think about it.

    No thanks. I'll stick with porn. - Benny

    If you listed your porn accounting experience on your resume and you can't enjoy a joke about it, you are probably awful to work with.

    Spent two weeks in Haines. Skied half a day. Rained on for almost two weeks straight. When the sun finally came, it was shit snow and insane avalanche danger. A gazillion hobs rolled over with a 50% loss.

    Been there, done that unfortunately. Got cabin fever by the 4th no fly day and went to Juneau and got hammered.

    Such a feast or famine sport.

    We managed a day and a half in Cordova. Low angle skiing, and I still managed to get mostly buried. If I ever heli again it will likely be Canadian Rockies--if I'm going to ski low angle it might as well be powder.

    It really is. I have always told people that going to AK is a big gamble, but I didn't expect to lose it as big.

    Yeah, I'm considering the same. Was this now in March?

    Wow, that's brutal. I appreciate the days I managed to get even more whenever I see a report like this. Ugh

    Olivia Jade Giannulli feels “hurt, devastated and resentful” that her parents, Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli, were allegedly involved in a nationwide college admissions scam, a source exclusively tells Us Weekly.

    “[Olivia] was passionate about her career, and now everything she built has imploded before her eyes,” the insider reveals in the new issue of Us. “She feels they ruined everything.”

    A second source previously told Us that Olivia, 19, and sister Bella, 20, “were so close” to their mom prior to the scandal, but the trio’s relationship is now strained.

    The insider revealed, “[Olivia] is not talking to her parents right now. [She] feels she is the victim.” The beauty guru lost brand deals with TRESemmé and Sephora as a result of her parents’ alleged actions.

    The source continued, “Olivia blames her mom and dad for this scandal and for the downfall of her career.
    1st world indeed.

    I once interviewed a kid that grew up working at the family funeral home. It was at a retail luggage and gifts chain store assistant manager position. He did embalming among other things. Should have hired him. A couple months later some lady came in the store with her mother's ashes looking for a cheap assed jewelry box to keep them in.. too cheap to purchase a proper urn LOL..
    Go that way really REALLY fast. If something gets in your way, TURN!

    Did this post get its own thread? What interview question got the most laughs? Did the guy get hired? This post deserves some goddamn follow-up. Cross posting to first-world shit that annoys me !

    When I was a chief surgery resident I did some interviewing for internships. Guy who used to be a whitewater guide--recommended. Guy who ran the family farm after his father died--recommended. Guy who published a bunch of papers and had straight A's in med school--not recommended. Unfortunately my recommendations were ignored. One of the attendings blackballed a couple of people because of weak handshakes. (For the record, when you're taking care of a lot of old, fragile people a strong handshake is not a good thing.)

    I always looked for the people who had real life experience and they always panned out. 4th year Med students know a lot about being students and jack shut about being a successful doc.
