I used a Kitchen Sink for a year in college. My freshman year, when I bought a bunch of new stuff expecting to have most of it until I graduated. It made it through summer classes, then tore at the top of the strap as I was walking to my car after my last final. Read more

I rent somewhat frequently for work (25 rentals in 2016, for example). I prefer Enterprise, as they have an off-airport location a few blocks from my house; since they more or less know me, I’m in and out in a few minutes, and if they don’t have a full-size for me, they’ll upgrade me for free to whatever they have on… Read more
They got out of F1 last year after selling to Renault. Racing I'm general is rarely profitable, so I imagine part of them being in a position to turn profit is from not competing in Formula 1.
I have the BookBook Volume V, and I have to say I really like it. The only first world problem that I encounter with it is when I carry more than 3 bills, it gets a little puffy. But past that, life is good with this case.
With bigger corporations, I think the "Interviews" tab is the most useful; the interview process usually is similar from one division to the next. Once you start looking at companies with multiple campuses, seeing the reviews gets muddled.
We're going through some change at my job, so we've had quite a few interviews happening in the last week or so. Anyway, a guy walks into the bullpen escorted by his interviewers (big bosses from here and corporate) on the way to the conference room, and hears a rant about our internet connection, computers, etc. I'm… Read more
If anything, it may go back to his swim in the canal. Dude was hammered... I'm pretty sure an alcohol arrest gets you put on the list.
High school basketball is much bigger, to be honest. Unless you live in Speedway or own a hotel in Indianapolis, The 500, 400, and whatever Grand-Prix is in town goes largely unnoticed by the vast majority of the state. High school basketball, on the other hand... we've had gubernatorial candidates with the sole… Read more
Same here. We have a "standing" meeting that used to be just that - you didn't sit, and it took 5 minutes every morning. Then it evolved into a 10 minute, then a 15, now it's closer to 30 minutes, and we've moved into a conference room. I was hoping that a change in management would change that little ditty, but it… Read more
I used to sit in on co-op interviews (being a former co-op myself), and it happens more than you'd think, at least in the college level. We had one kid excuse himself, then take a call from another employer while we were in the room. I'd say of the 30 or so co-op interviews I sat in on, I saw phones in about half of… Read more
Same. I very rarely look at the keyboard unless I'm hunting for a F1-F12. I specifically keep mine up, though, so my mouse-pad can slide under it a little. It helps me feel like my desk is a little more organized.
You went from hobbiest to entrepreneur. Look at you go!
I'm certainly in the red on my shooting/ firearm "hobby." My main issue is once I make a purchase, I can never justify turning around and selling it, even to the end of purchasing something better. I put so much thought and research into buying a shotgun that by the time I have it, I'm don't really want to get rid of… Read more
I'm a year out of college, but I technically hold the "senior" manufacturing engineer spot on the org chart over five other manufacturing engineers. The only reason I have "Senior Manufacturing Engineer" on my business card is because they made me put it (I argued with my boss over the fact). I know the other MEs… Read more
