Drunk Driving

Read this article for background: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/07/30/AR2009073004030.html

I think drunk driving should be punished thusly:
  • 1st offense, no fatality: permanent revoking of the offender's driving privileges
  • 2nd offense, no fatality: mandatory installation of breathlyzer for offender's cars (and all cars to which the offender has access)
  • 3rd offense, no fatality: 10 year prison sentence
  • fatality (regardless of # of offense): charged with murder 1
To me anyone who drinks and drives is essentially saying: "everybody's live isn't worth the inconvenience of me taking a cab". The person is saying: "hmm, who can I find to kill tonight". I really don't care if you took 1 or 2 drinks. Why should everybody have to pay a hefty price for your inability to watch what you drink?

Take the care of this f**king bastard. He rang up tab of $107 (17 bottles of Corona, 2 Lemon Drops and 1 Cuervo Gold) and proceeded to get on the highway. He causes an accident, leaves the scene, calls 911 to report his injury and then checks into an hotel room. Doesn't turn himself in until the next day. So tell me, what right does a bastard like that have to life? Why should he live when he knowingly consumed a huge amount of alcohol before driving? BTW, this guy has previous convictions for drunk driving, reckless driving, selling marijuana and speeding.

To add insult to injury, he's only charged and convicted for manslaughter and could be out in 4 years with the slate wiped clean. This means in 4 years, this bastard will be free to kill more children just so he can drink. I hope he gets what's coming to him in prison.

Career 101: Dunk, layup or dribble out of bounds?

Saw this on Whisper:


The way I see it, this dude has 3 options:
Reject the $55K increase and stick with his old job that he loves (dribble out of bounds)Take the $170K to his current boss and negotiate for a raise (layup)Take the $170K job, stick with it for a year and then bounce (dunk) The first option is what I call a poor person's advice. It sounds very noble...very "get a job you love and you'll never work". Well I am here to say that's bullshit (mostly). This is business; you should always get the most you can. Besides, this is a chance for this dude to change his baseline salary for future jobs. At his current job, getting that $55K will take several years because corporate America isn't going to offer you more than a token raise each year.

My advice would be to take the $170K offer to his current manager and get him/her to match it or raise his current salary. That's the layup option. It's not too money-hungry and doesn't summarily leave $5…

What to do?

I recently bought one of those wireless earbuds from Amazon. I spent some time researching all the available options and finally picked this particular one. It was highly rated on Amazon 5 stars from 54 reviewers (most of them "verified purchase"). Not great but not bad. Anyway, the earbuds arrived and I found this in the box:

Hmm, OK. Very mysterious. As instructed, I sent them an email for further information. Here's what I received:

Funny thing is I really like the ear buds. Excellent build quality and thus far, great performance. They reconnect to my phone 2-3 seconds after taking them out of the case. It's easy to create a good seal...sometimes so good I get that underwater feeling one gets with noise cancelling headphones. Even without the 40% incentive, I would have written a review...that's how much I like the ear buds. But now I feel weird about doing it. I wonder how many of those 54 5-star reviews were motivated by a 40% discount.

As for the 40% discou…
