Apr 14th 2011 11:20AM Not sure how a salary is "handed" too someone. I believe they have to work as long as needed to get the job done without reward, show me someone these days with a salary who works 40 hours and doesn't work the a state or federal government. They don't have a Union to call when I mess up either. As for myself I make whatever I can earn on my own, I don't have the luxury of either job.
Basically you don't have to defend your job to me. You have to defend it to the taxpayers, good luck in a broke state like IL.
I think my sons and daughters will be just fine, thank you for the concern.
Really I glossed over the minutemen based on the news coverage they are getting now, and didn't really express an opinion one way or the other. Nothing was untrue, you yourself admit to getting lots of overtime (maybe you read my tone differently because there is some guilt). I don't think I bashed you or your career in any way. In fact my follow up comment was pointing the rescue job in the video was done out of necessity for safety and gave you the benefit of the doubt. Perhaps that was hasty given your reply.
Me thinks you doth protest too much...
Apr 14th 2011 10:49AM Kia had recently hired the lead Audi designer, it's finally beginning to show. Looking better and better. Korean is the new Japan in car design and quality. Honda and Toyota are running into the same issues the American car companies did. Getting too large and bloated to be nimble in the market place. The latest from them has been pretty bland and uninspiring and quality isn't what it used to be.
Who cares where it comes from, here's to more fun to drive and interesting design where it is.
Apr 11th 2011 1:07PM Also what you don't see is that this an incredibly dangerous area he wrecked into the wall, there are no break down lanes there and he's sitting in the left lane backwards. Better to just rip the car out of the way for everyone's safety.
Look again, this wasn't an unwrecked car on the side of the road, you can see debris on the ground and some clear right side damage in the front of the car. We see the clean side.
Apr 11th 2011 12:57PM Big story on how these minute men are getting mad overtime, including up to doubling their salary. That being said looks like they tagged the wall pretty good, so living here and personally being stuck in late night traffic jams because of these tools coming into the city maybe they will drive better.
Am I wrong or is the real crime those atrocious rims he put on that Corvette..
Apr 11th 2011 9:15AM Archaeology, haven't touched it.
Apr 8th 2011 3:34PM Anyone know the manufacturer of the Liberty?Cherokee wheels? They are nice indeed.
Apr 8th 2011 9:27AM Another case of digital courage. Anonymity can be a very cruel thing for some people, and it brings out the worst in many people. No one ever has the guts to try this face to face. Shameful, plain and simple.
That being said, I think vent is becoming less and less vital to raiding. The addons and in game notifications and graphics are much more precise and telling. I agree with the other poster that is seems to be there more for razzing and scolding. If you are a good aware player you don't need it, and should be last on the list of guild requirements below authenticator.
Apr 7th 2011 9:54AM I couldn't agree more with the comments from other tanks. I too was a raid tank in Wrath and retired my paladin (arguably the easiest Cata tank class), not because its too hard, or challenging, or even because its not fun. I retired because of the horrible attitude of players in the LFD. I will only tank for guild runs now as well. I second all of the previous posters frustrations. The simple matter is we are all learning mechanics, and a tank miss on a mechanic means everyone wipes. DPS miss on a mechanic means little, sometimes they die, generally not a wipe. I feel for healers as they get a lot of the same problem. Not much call for my Holy/Prot paladin.
The game mechanics have changed to the point good solid players generally are not willing to sacrifice and hour or two to deal with the garbage and run guild runs only. Sure there are exceptions but the good players are done with LFD and what is left are mostly irritable soloists who have nothing better to do than make snide remarks and ruin your game play time. You just simply get so much more rewards and gratification doing a guild run. Fixing this isnt as easy as a grab bag.
Team work, patience and good character come from your guild or friends list, not from the anonymous random dungeon finder. It worked in wrath because the above 3 traits were not needed to accomplish the task. It simply does not work well now.
Apr 6th 2011 12:13PM I cant imagine that spotting opponent gear level is the main reason for the gear uniformity. Blizzard has often said you have to make a development choice on where your priority is and they choose less customization and more content. Besides they allow druids to run the pvp field in a uniform appearance, you cant spot the gear level on a kitty.
