When my MIL who worked for the "phone company" for over 35 years was offered a 5+5 early retirement package, I advised her to sign up for it first thing in the morning. She is pretty happy about that now.

Hiring back as a contractor is such a staple of American business it's not funny. Take it to the bank Merlin.

I got 4-5 literlols from this album and rather than just piece them out one at a time I want you all to enjoy today. 43 Hilarious Chinese Knock-off Toys - Album on Imgur

I'd like to nominate myself as "Big Fella", TKP as maybe "Specialman", and I get a real "Robert Cop" vibe from G.

Anyone have any experience/opinions/ideas on Android tablets? Wanting to get a tablet for my youngest. My oldest (12) has the Google Nexus 7 from a couple years ago and it's been great. Was looking at the Samsung Galaxy Tab A for this dude.

Any ideas?

They are hard to swallow. I prefer liquid when possible.

Just playing with the prefering liquid part.

I would much rather he have an ipad but they are way too expensive for a 9 year old. Although, I do like the Android UI even though I'm a diehard iOS fan.

I like Samsung tablets (even though I prefer HTC phones). I got my wife a Galaxy Tab S a little over a year ago, she likes it. I'm still using an older Note 10.1 from several years ago that I rooted and put a custom ROM on. The Tab S is definitely faster, so I'm sure the A/S2 are nice as well.

ABS + Brake + TCS warning lights are now illuminating the dashboard.

Saabs are great except for when they aren't.

Hopefully it's just a rusty sensor ring.

I recently had a wheel bearing replaced, so I'm hoping they screwed up reconnecting a sensor or something down there and it's an easy fix. Weeee shall see...

they are...and it's just beginning.

i think you have to be either really, really smart to appreciate wrestling, or on the complete other end of the spectrum. i'm in the latter camp. used to watch it as a little kid, though.

This isn't the way I had hoped my local association would make cycling news.
