A man's being arrested by a female police officer, who informs him, "Anything you say can be used may be held against you." The man replies, "Boobs!

What's up with Dr. Lou in the neck brace?  Was he in a motorcycle accident while riding with a woman who was not his wife?

I was in the exact same position as you - 20+ years in and boom.  It ended up being the best thing that ever happened to me.  Got out of a rut, went back to school and got another degree, was able to advance myself, within 4 years or so I was making about 70% more than I was when my position was eliminated (never did get the sweet vacation/earned time package back though - I was at 8 weeks).  There was a lot of luck involved, definitely some low times (I was underemployed for about two years), my wife was awesome about it.  Keep your head up, it is not personal, not a reflection of your capabilities in any way.  Just try to keep a positive attitude, keep plugging, take what comes your way.  No other advice to give, but I took the severance package rather than the alternate job assignment because i was pissed and did not want to work for that company anymore.  It might have been a better decision to stick around and make some money while I looked for something else (though I probably would not have been able to get that additional degree), so just try not to make decisions based on emotion.  Good luck man, I definitely feel your pain.

Steeler's scored the last touchdown with 2 seconds left.  Patriots controlled the game throughout, really.

If you see Founders Backwoods Bastard absolutely buy it.  It is a seasonal, but about to come out I think.  Bourbon barrel aged scotch ale.  Great, great beer (I have both Founders Breakfast stout and Founders KBS in the fridge right now, BB rivals them, at least).

Always been an android user. Got an iPad to see what life was like on the other side. I found out it is very pretty, but values form over function. Won't be shopping at Apple anymore.

They are standing in front of a glass front high rise hotel which is reflecting the setting sun back at them causing the shadows, duh.  By the way it's mo'on, haole.

It doesn't really, just that you forget that it's beer when you're drinking it cuz it tastes like candy.  If you want to step up a little try an Oskar Blues Old Chub.  Usually easy to find, fairly easy drinking, 8% abv.

I have a bottle of 2014 FiftyFifty Eclipse Imperial Stout aged in Four Roses barrels.  Monday may be just the time to finally pop it open.

Thanks Ramzy.  I have no one to call, but this was a wonderful reminder of, among other things, how sports is much more than just sports.

If the team loses again to VT, they should be forced to wear that helmet the rest of the year (until the NCG).

Not  knowing where you are located (it might help to state that), I have no specific recommendations, but I would suggest ditching the electricity requirement.  It's cooler - You are tent camping after all - and it may increase your chances of getting a more secluded site.

This event was a big influence on my life and my outlook, even though I was still in grade school when it happened.  Watched a very good special last night on PBS about it.  Public opinion at the time was highly in favor of the National Guard being in the right.  Great sound clips I had not heard before of a professor trying to de-escalate the situation - very emotional -  and some clips of a surprisingly human Richard Nixon in the aftermath.
