I don't care if the upcoming election pits Lucifer vs. Obama, I'm voting for Ron Paul. As Matt Damon famously said, "I'm terribly disappointed in Obama."
"“I’ve talked to a lot of people who worked for Obama at the grassroots level,” he told ELLE. “One of them said to me, ‘Never again. I will never be fooled again by a politician.’” That was Damon just getting started. He added later, “You know, a one-term president with some balls who actually got stuff done would have been, in the long run of the country, much better.”
Come back and talk to me after you've endured a night on the floor in DIA, and then wake up in the morning and realize that you are literally trapped in the airport, with no foreseeable way home.
After spending 36 hours in DIA (Denver Intl Airport) due to a spring snowstorm that shut down the entire airport, I will never again fly United if I can help it and DIA (United's major western hub) is to be avoided at all costs.
The most demoralizing thing in the world is to wake up from a night sleeping on the airport floor and watch freshly scrubbed local customers board the plane that you could not fly out of town the night before. That's right: United dumped all (paid, booked) passengers from our previous night's canceled flight on standby.
Want to feel a real kick in the nuts? Walk up to a departure gate and ask how many passengers are wait-listed to your home town...Ans: 99.
The only way we escaped DIA in a relatively short period of time was due to my wife's "constructive confrontation" with a United ticketing agent.
Built his own fusion reactor...excellent...and also figured out a way to make sure that the resulting neutron flux doesn't turn his carcass into a smouldering ash heap. Bonus.
The stupid but obvious question: why are people at these companies using IE6?
Some companies employ IT as an afterthought and, consequently, staffing suffers as a result. Typically, the help desk is outsourced and the local IT employees are simply not empowered to make bold decisions (like, say, forcing everyone to fix their IE6-dependent apps).
At the company where I work, I suspect we'll migrate off IE6 when some external entity forces our hand. For example, if/when Google withdraws support for IE6.
Our company-wide web filter (Websense) blocks all access to bing.com .
Guess our employees won't be using Bing
