#3223364 Has Al finally lost it?

Posted by thefuzz on 29 January 2015 - 01:41 PM

The only thing that's out of hand is ignoring the problem.

 

Oh and

 

 

Helps to read beyond the headline.

 

Oh, I read it, and re-read it to make sure what they were proposing, as outlandish as it sounds was true.  Seems it was/is.

 

 

As to ignoring the problem....you can't go 3 minuets watching the news without it being mentioned, how on Earth is that ignoring the problem.

 

 

That said, I don't think that global warming is nearly as important as many other issues facing Americans today.




#3223256 Post Your Best Interview Advice/Tips

Posted by thefuzz on 29 January 2015 - 11:45 AM

BUMP/UPDATE:

 

The position still has not been filled and last night I spoke with my contact in HR. She told me that I am their guy and that she wishes she could give me an offer right now but the position still needs to be approved. The delay has nothing to do with other candidates but rather logistics. I interviewed December, 3rd. She told me that her gut feeling is that it will be formally approved and the necessary people will sign-off on officially creating the position but that there is a still a chance it does not happen for whatever reason. I guess my question to some of you is, is this sort of thing normal? By that I mean, for a company to interview a candidate without the position actually in place or formally created ahead of time? Do you think it is a department head that needs to sign off on the position being filled? I'd assume this is the case as he would likely be in charge of budgeting and things of that nature. 

 

Any input would be greatly appreciated! 

 

Doesn't sound real good, not too bad either.

 

 

I have seen this before.  Dept. head has a good idea, gets the "go ahead" from his boss, and so on.  Owner of the company still has to be sold on the idea, but dept. head starts bringing in people to interview to see if he get's any home runs.  If he hits on a good one, he may be able to sell the idea to the owner and get it approved.

 

 

I would continue to look if I were in your shoes....that said, if you are smart, you will never stop looking/getting your name out for a new, better job.




#3223240 Some people are just assholes

Posted by thefuzz on 29 January 2015 - 11:28 AM

That type thing, along with folks who leave the shopping carts in the parking lot, make me really angry.

 

 

I'm pretty chill to most everyone, even when they do stupid things, but I will call anyone out on that type thing in a minute.




#3222505 Crude oil may drop to $50 a barrel

Posted by thefuzz on 28 January 2015 - 02:05 PM

Or buy more poo...  It is a fact, most American families live paycheck to paycheck.

 

Yup.

 

Saw my parents live like this their entire lives....into their 60's.  Sad really.

 

 

 

The wife and I just got finished putting 1 full years mortgage, power, and water bills aside.  Next up is getting nasty on the little bit of debt she has left and retirement.




#3222469 Crude oil may drop to $50 a barrel

Posted by thefuzz on 28 January 2015 - 01:39 PM

I still expect them to dip a little but not by much.

 

I agree, but think of it this way.

 

 

Middle class family has an extra 1500 in their pockets from not buying overpriced gas....what do they do with it?

 

 

Pay off college loans....nope.

 

Pay off credit cards.....nope.

 

 

Let's go to Atlantis baby!




#3221252 Advice-Buying Hardwood or Laminate Flooring

Posted by thefuzz on 27 January 2015 - 10:02 AM

So since we have a large amount of posters from diverse backgrounds who offer great advice, I am looking to upgrade my flooring.

I have carpet in my living room, dining room, sun room and awful laminate flooring in the kitchen. I have just started the process of shopping for hardwood or the Faux Wood laminate flooring.

I would appreciate any feedback on companies, pricing, what to look for, performance of materials (laminite vs flooring) hidden pricing.

I will have to hire someone to install bc I am a girlie-man.

Any help is appreciated!

What type of foundation do you have?

 

That will determine a lot.

Ya, I always want to fight some douchebag at the end of the pinewood derby

 

Good luck.

 

My Dad was a beast with those things.  I don't think I ever lost 1 run.  

 

 

Dude was such a freak he built a test ramp to get the weight right every time.  Not kidding, full test ramp, to specs, with laser finish line.

I bet you would cut off your nose to spite your face. Once oil goes down so does the economy but you're more concerned with saving a few dollars a month but what you won't see is government programs supporting those out of work.

Go back to Twitter with the teenagers and telling me, "Sorry not sorry". The oilfield trash would have a field day with you

 

Whoa man, what's your fuging deal?

 

 

Oil was overpriced, and everyone that was touching was getting rich at the expense of middle and lower class America.

 

I'm in an industry that took a beatdown over the last 10 years....I'm not mad about it, it's just how the cookie crumbles.

 

 

As for the "once oil goes down, so does the economy"....have you ever paid attention to what lower energy prices do to economies?

Posted by thefuzz on 23 January 2015 - 01:22 PM

Once it drops below $40/bbl the oil industry is laying off 70,000 or about 10% of the industry. But you feel good about filling up your tank for cheap with oil used to support terrorism while our hard working American oil just waits for the price to go back up.

 

Sorry, not sorry.

 

 

Every industry has ups and downs, even energy.




#3216774 Re-Drafting all of the Panthers Rookies....

Amazing what you can happen with a real "football guy" heading up the front office.

 

We have a plan, and so far, I'm loving it.




#3208729 Ravens tell Smith to take a little time out

Posted by thefuzz on 17 January 2015 - 10:37 AM

Yeah lets make excuses about grammar to hide the fact that you don't have anything to back your opinion and you continue to talk out of your ass...........

 

if you would take the time and read instead of going off half-cocked you wouldn't look like a fool

 

My opinion: Steve Smith was not a great locker room guy, and cost too much to keep.

 

Your opinion: Smitty dat deal, everybady love him, he good and we win playoff with him here.  Getts sukes.  Nice to all panther wrs ever.

 

 

 

I wonder who looks like a fool in this instance?




#3207796 To be a Bears fan right now...

Foxy, like Schotty, are great at getting bottom of the barrel teams competitive, then the magic wears off.

 

 

Fox/Lewis/Lovie/Fisher

 

 

Those dudes know how to play the game, and not the way that would benefit a team.




#3207730 Ravens tell Smith to take a little time out

Posted by thefuzz on 16 January 2015 - 02:11 PM

you didn't even answer the question, did you even read the post? i clealry said name a wr that left CAR while SMITH was still here and lit it up elsewhere ......lafell had a career year, but he had that with tom brady as a qb and on a team that passes more then us..........also with him being the main wr target. Lafell having a career year had far more to do with those factors then anything else.

 

so how about you just take a break posting until you actually know what your talking about.........

 

I know you are a child, and probably next to illiterate, but for goodness sake, please learn to capitalize, punctuate, and spell, if you are going to try to carry on a real conversation.

 

 

That said, it's very well known, at least to people older than 17, and to most all football fans that SS was not great in the locker room, and went out of his way to NOT help younger WR's develop.
