    I got a Buddy used to work in the mortgage industry who now is a bee keeper. Seems happier than most I know, myself included.

    You believe people with with different sexual orientation than you are "wrong." I think that's bigotry. I'm glad you don't make that a conscious or direct part of your daily interaction with the world.

    I guess the question is whether a belief itself is bigotry or do you have to act on it for it to be bigotry. I don't think the former exists without the latter. For instance, do you teach your kids that belief? At the very least I'm assuming that if I know it, and the poster that asked you about it knows it, your kids know it. That means you're spreading it, whether or not you mean to. I don't plan on going back and forth on this, but that's my take.

    That’s where he’s at, single, no kids, had the “what am I doing with my life” moment. Said fuck it and moved to Delaware and has twenty some hives now. Selling honey and hives watching the rat race eat us all up.

    wife and i are having a house built and when i drive by to check on it i kinda envy the builders. like i know i would hate it and the pay would probably suck but having a sense of accomplishment and seeing your work actually make something seems appealing

    Pretty fun. Last Week some guys came to our school from county office to set up our stage from graduation. For some reason they were using this thing and one dude ran all the way over the other. He was fine but had tire tracks all the way up his back.

    Speaking of things ruining my day, a fucking snake decided to drop by my son’s birthday party this past weekend at my in laws. Big ass black snake just cruised on by the entire party. I went inside immediately. Fuck snakes.

    Tiger over bear. Tigers go for the quick kill to the jugular. Bears eat you while you’re still alive. They like the screaming.

    Don't have kids and don't plan on having them.
    There's a lot of assumption on your part of what my belief means and how it affects my and others lives. Which I can't fault you for that because there are plenty of disgusting individuals who absolutely do use their religion as an excuse simply because they hate homosexuals. That's not me. The people who are like that are not Christ-like.

    That doesn't mean I think it's a moral practice that falls in line with Christian theology either. The same can be said for dozens of other acts. It's no different to me. It's between them and God on how it will ultimately impact their soul.

    To answer your hypothetical about would I teach my kids this... Yes. But again teach them what? Not the assumption you made that they should hate or anything like that. But to try and live a Godly life that follows the instructions the church has been given. Be the best they can be given the criteria set before them. Not to hate others.

    We had a racoon getting into our garbage cans, which was frustrating, but we shut them up better and now the racoon is getting into my neighbor's garbage cans. That went from shitty to hilarious in about a week.

    The whole idea that a corporation cares about you is bizarre to me. It's like wondering why a dog doesn't wear clothes. It's not designed to or capable of thinking in that manner much less carry it out.

    Like it can appear to care about you by mimicking your body language but it's doing it so that it gets the most production out of you as possible. It doesn't actually care about you

    my last job had maybe an hour of work a day. my boss would leave at noon and the office would be empty. i'd leave for hours at a time and no one said anything. would grab a few beers and lock the office door and watch a baseball or soccer game or take a nap.

    i miss it

    You have no managerial responsibility. Expectations for production and timelines are absurdly low. You get to hang out outside, drive dump trucks and other sweet heavy equipment, pawn off your real hard labor on college kids, and get to cut out at 3:00 every day. You also accumulate crazy time off through comp time when you plow snow (in the North obv) so if you do it right you can take off like 2 months during the summer to fuck off. And the benefits are really good.

    I just got off a project management conference call and basically got admonished because one of the projects I manage is too efficient and we’re going to have to give too much of the budget back to the client. Truly absurd.
