    What's this recession everyone keeps taking about? I've changed jobs 4 times since 2008, and each time was a step up

    Nice. I ordered a new tv over the weekend. Got delivered yesterday. It was an odd feeling connecting my tv to Wi-Fi and then downloading apps to it.

    You are most fortunate ..and I salute your initiative.

    This recession & economy rumor ...
    It's a Monster ..and it's real.
    You'll know it when you see it.

    It's taken a few of my friends down.
    I got a glimpse of the Beast ...it was ugly ..I'll leave it at that.

    On a more postive note .... It's Thirsty Thursday already!
    This week was not nearly as bad as predicted.:thumb:

    All joking aside, I definitely consider myself lucky to have been unaffected by it.

    You got married, so you fvcked yourself financially another way.

    Today is my Friday as it's been since April. The 26/650b/29 thread should keep me occupied all day until I can ride after work. Hardtail to be delivered and build Saturday. Boing.

    How do you figure? My wife actually makes more than I do, but she has her master's degree.

    It was a joke referring to the cliche notion that women love fancy, sparkly expensive things.

    Oh well that's true. But other than occasionally, she pays for her own stuff.

    Had an awesome ride this morning (ground is starting to freeze, which makes for excellent conditions). Now I'm sitting in my office staring at my bike, researching new bikes, doing exactly zero work.

    Just found out my brother-in-law lost his job today.
    Sure didn't vote for oboma but sure hope he can pull his head out of his ass and turn this economy around.
