Is Phil Collins aware that Inside Edition stole the drum fill from "In the Air Tonight" for their intro music?

BWAL i have higher standards than trying to date an IT support girl. unless she moonlights as a food service worker, i'm not interested

WickedSnake00 I think work has officially sucked the fun out of operating a dyno. That's why they call it work and not "super-happy-fun-time" or "skippedy doo."

But it's definitely an option if you wanted to teach yourself without dishing out the money. Pretty sure you can get C++ or some other coding program without paying as well or just find it on the high seas.

After that it'd just be a matter of trying to convince someone you know what you're doing even without the formal education, but I've read stories of people doing that so it's totally a possibility.

and all of MITs IT stuff is wayyyyy outdated lol
What, you too good for introduction to vacuum tubes?

The thermometer on the smoker is off, by a good amount so I'm not sure what temp it was actually running. I kept them in until they were 115 internal, and they were a bit more dry than expected but my dad absolutely loved them.

I did get a smoke ring lol. I'm gonna try one more time without chips and crank up the temp as high as it will go. I did a little test a while back and the smoker can maintain 259-260 at full bore with the vent closed.

Just get a Capital One Venture card, put every single thing you can on it, and then you can still get cheap flights.
I've got a chase card that's designed for travel.

We will still probably attempt standby with United, but they are buddy passes so it's like $1100 round trip for coach, or $1300 for business class.

It makes a lot of sense for business class but less for coach.

The pay increase is.. substantial (but salary) and she would probably end up with 4-10s instead of the 5-6 day weeks that she currently has.

There are a ton of pros and cons to it, but government benefits, a $10/hr (maybe?) raise, and not dealing with union retards sounds very appealing to her.

We just lose flight benefits, so these $160 round trip flights to England will go away lol.

So Rachel has some time off left for the year, I have 5 days left as well and she wants to go to England very soon. We have an annual membership for the National Trust Sites and we want to get our money out of it lol.

I need a half day for the 23rd to do Christmas with her family, but she wants me to take an entire week so we can leave the 13th and come back on the 22nd.

I can't afford this.
