    I just listened to the CD version of the Rolling Stones LET IT BLEED 50th anniversary remaster, and it sounded fantastic. It's hard to believe I bought that album almost 50 years ago.

    Here's our um, new puppy Duke (John Wayne for short). Rescued him back in October. He'll be 11 months in a few days and he's close to 70 lbs.

    Very sorry to hear that Ari.
    Luckily you managed to get a lot of the money they owed you, not too long ago, so I hope that it will help you going through this time

    Sorry you were fired, been there myself more than once (never my fault, of course).

    Today, my brother and I took a trip (no drugs involved) to a glorious Emagine theater to see the new Jumanji movie in E-Max at a 10AM matinee.
    Going in, we saw the projection room door was open, and a man was poking at the controls with a penlight, a phone in his ear, the digital projector on a scaffolding above his head, the lights in the auditorium all at full brilliance.
    I asked him if there was a problem, and he silently shook his head 'no'.
    About 50 minutes later we were given two free passes and our money back.
    This happens a lot at the theater giving you "The ultimate movie experience in comfort and silence with no cell phone use."
    That entire statement is a falsehood.
    Also, it's Friday the 13th. Just a coincidence?
    I'm sure if there is intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe, they are wise enough to stay away from us.

    And the people bowed and prayed, to the cell phone god they made...

    Sorry to hear about your firing, Ari.

    A few years back at the company I worked at retirement party the retiree was speaking to everyone and said (and I quote), "This Company spent two weeks training me to do my job and then spent the next 40 years trying to fire me." It still remains true today.
    There are no coincidences. Only Ka.

    I don't like rep points! -
    Please use the 'I disapprove' option for me. (seriously)

    Thank you very much, everyone. I really appreciate all the comments.

    It has been a difficult year for me in terms of my (now ex) company. One year ago I was having lunch in London with the 2nd in command of the company who was praising and calling "Revolutionary" the software I designed for training purposes, which projected savings of more than a millon dollars per year from 2021 on. But then things changed, the comany was acquired by another one, a lot of people was laid off and they put the only person I didn't get along with as my manager (and I mentioned this before it happened to my former boss, saying it was a risk to put him and me in the same team but different levels, that he knew his attitute toward most of the people in the company). It took him less than a year to dismiss me and another guy from my team that he didn't like either.

    They paid me the money owed (most of it, at least) but they did a lot of wrong things with me so while they'll have to pay me a decent sum, it's very likely I'll have to go legal on them.

    I've been fired three times in my life: two because the position and/or the team where I was was closing. For this one we have a saying: it's a "skin matter". He just didn't like us and decided to fire us just because.
