  1. Congrats. I tell people all the time that it's not taxes that bothers me,it's a lack of return on my investment. They are welcome to 50-60% of my earnings if proper healthcare and the existence of some sort of retirement is the return.
  2. I'm just hoping for the best and preparing for the worst. Like always. My company was offering us foremen an 80% refund plan on our health insurance(turn in a bill every month and get 80% back from the company). Now they withdrew that offer. They are planning for Trump to repeal Obamacare. Now,I have never believed that forced Health Insurance is the answer (it just creates a huge middle man industry only concerned with profits),but tax time is here and the law is still on the books. In my opinion that makes the company I work for soul-less assholes. So the next time I leave this company I will not go back until it changes ownership. This is supposed to happen in the next ten years or so,and I believe the new guy is a solid individual(He's been moving up the ladder for almost ten years now)..but most likely I'll just get a Class A license,crane certs,safety certs,and just go wherever I wish.
  3. I don't think Trumpanzee needs my shitshow. He's running his own.

  5. Pfft. Lightweights.. I shit every single day. Big smelly ones. Morning and evening. Feel free to be jealous.
  6. I have not.I bought this on a whim last year sometime at the end of a beer drinking phase.This time I was just out of the hard stuff,so I popped one of these out. Really good right out of the bottle.I took a drink and didn't even bother with the glass.Some beers are just designed for the bottle they are in I think.
  7. Founder's Imperial 10.5 stout...aged about a year. Fine,fine beer
  8. I had to do that a while back.Those American Elms get so big they just can't support themselves.
  9. I'm very disappointed in.myself right now. I was at the grocery store,and it's very rare that a woman catches my eye,as I have a very specific type.So I'm going to get plastic forks and I see a nerdy looking lady with a ponytail who is exactly my height(about 6' give or take) with about a 28"waist,firm athletic build(like a runner) and wearing zero makeup.I actually say "wow" under my breath. So I go to get my plasticware,and she is looking at the same plasticware...probably means she's single and doesn't want to wash dishes. so what do I do? Nothing.I do nothing.Been kicking myself for the last few hours about it.Fucking moron. I turned in my man card.I hope I see her again.I don't know what's wrong with me.In my younger days I usually opened with something like "I'm sorry,but I really find you attractive.Are you single by chance?" Direct and to the point. I didn't say shit. Fuck me,I suck.
  10. I bought a fresh bottle of Jameson and am getting back to my hobby of altering my state of mind as much as possible.
  11. Strange,I just had the same thing happen.DPS using his signals and driving just like everyone else for a change.
  12. Hey,man.Good to see you're still around. Good luck.I haven't built anything in a pretty long time myself.If I'm being honest with myself I'm fairly disappointed in the constant monotony of middle age and that's resulting in a total lack of drive and inspiration. I have a plan to fix all that by moving and changing my entire scene within the next few years..but only time will tell if that does the trick. Anyway,I remember debating with you over some things...but not the specifics.I don't recall disliking you...but I was still dealing with divorce fallout/etc back then soooo....
  13. Well,if he wanted the propeller to work he should have faced it more forward.
  14. I officially started my vacation today.No work until Jan 3. I'm going to sleep a lot,burn a lot of brush,and try to figure out what I want to be when I grow up.
