    I can recommend the Clone Wars cartoon series and Rebels (so far - I'm near the end of season 2). They have been quite good!

    Ah, clone wars. Brings me back to my midschool days.
    Which also reminds me of that psx game, Jedi power battles.

    No, it's 72 hours which would have been 9:13PM tonight. Isn't it?

    Good. It would've been a bummer if the thread had ended that quickly. :)

    Yeah 5 pages would be rather sad for one of these threads.

    Yep, for a time they shorten it to two days, but considering how active the forum can be it seemed that would lead to too quick of a victory.

    Sometimes I wonder about my brain in the morning hours. There's a 20-year-old document taped to the wall behind my monitor, with "line of credit mortgage --- open ended" written on it. Now I'm contemplating coming up with a short story that has "open ended" at the end as a pun.

    I have never watched the entire movie King Kong. The newer one with Jack Black.... There was a post with a scene from it with the giant insects. I wish I could go back to before seeing that. Nightmare fuel for awhile from that. Thanks.
    I can't imagine how many kids saw that in the theater...
    They should have marketed it as horror, it might have done better...

    Group chats for work are enlightening. More and more evidence that to be way high level management you have to be a psychopath.
    Guy is at the hospital because a member of his family is in surgery and when he said he is answering on his phone, the big boss guy said, "Hey, didn't we give you a laptop?"
    Just disgusting. I've lost all respect for that "boss".

    Many bosses only care about stuff like that when it's their family which is really sad.

    Makes me happy that I have a decent boss. Back after COVID-19 started becoming a huge concern, I had to go to the local medical center to get tested for it (I think in part because I had a colonoscopy coming up), and I was told during the course of the visit that I would need to keep myself quarantined for some days afterward---which meant staying home from work.

    Now, normally my boss doesn't pay me for time off. In this case, he was annoyed enough at the M.C.'s mandate that when I turned in my time sheet at the end of the month, he paid me in full for the days I missed. He didn't have to do it, since his business is at the point where I was (and still am) his only full-time employee, so I'm surprised and thankful he made that decision.

    That's someone who really cares. I wish all bosses could be like that. Many don't like taking their employees lives into account when making decisions.

    The last place I worked, our owners (a married couple) used company funds to buy a house just so their kid could play baseball in a different district. Getting anything done after that was extremely difficult because our CEO didn't like spending money even to get materials on time. Needless to say, that company is no longer in business but I found another job with WAY better management.

    Funny enough, our owner was formerly partners with my last employer. He ended up leaving early on when I was there so I basically got hired by the same guy at 2 different companies doing pretty much the same kind of work.

    It's amusing how things work out like that. And also pretty nice, too. :)
