!!!!!!!! so jealous! PSEG seemed to really like me but they weren't sure if they had anything open for me. i'm planning on taking all of the stuff i collected at the job fair, making profiles, and applying during class today and then later tonight. BAE systems seemed to like me too. I was pleased by the amount of manufacturing places that were there because that is where my internship experience is in.


yeah i need to follow up on a few places too. honeywell seemed to like me. i saw BAE talk to you for awhile while i was waiting for the Unilever guy (who was quite cute, btw...)

i never even unpacked all the **** i got. i still have all that stuff i stole from you in my purse. i really need to go through it all

Due process is him being in jail. Bottom line. He shot someone, doesn't matter if he was being punched. If you're in a fist fight and produce a gun and kill someone who is clearly unarmed, you're in custody until the trial absolves you. This did not happen, so as it stands, the justice system, as per usual, failed.

Why would you arrrest, charge and try someone if you know your case isn't strong enough to get a conviction and if you try and fail, he'll never have to serve time for the crime due to double jeopardy? Wouldn't it be better to build a case against the guy and have a strong conviction?

The legal system sucks, but these steps have a purpose. And it's mostly to prevent overzealous prosecutors from just trying anyone in hopes of getting a conviction, knowing that they could try again later. And honestly, if these steps weren't in place, I'm pretty sure there'd be a whole hell of a lot more young black men like Trayvon Martin in jail because some white lawyer took a chance and try to convict him on less than convincing evidence.

what did i say about taking my jobs! :laugh:

BAE seemed like my best bet from what i read off them. I talked to Honeywell for a good amount of time too and she seemed semi interested. It was amazing how fast some people would look at your resume and talk to you though. I also felt like since it was aimed more for women, I wasn't really what a lot of places were looking for.

i don't think thats the case at all. yes the companies send mostly women to these things to recruit because it's a SWE event, but an engineer is an engineer. BAE wasn't for me, but location is important to me now. even Honeywell isn't in a good spot. honestly i'm not sure any of them would help my commute. lol. its nice to feel wanted though

what do you mean you "weren't what they were looking for?"

There is still a chance for that job. It was put on the back-burner because they needed someone to start right away and I am still in school. I'm going to try to apply for all of the jobs from the job fair tonight. I already found one company that didn't have the listings up yet, which is really frustrating.

My wife and I have divided our roles like husband and wives did it back in the 1950's. I swear we didn't try to do it this way but she gets mad when I load the dishwasher wrong, put food in the wrong place in the pantry or leave our toaster oven on for 2 hours like I did yesterday (I hate that thing!). She terrifies me with anything that requires oil and gas or tools that can remove limbs.

Dear Mr. Townsend:



Thank you for contacting me to share your views regarding the proposed Pebble Mine. I appreciate knowing your thoughts on this issue.



As you may know, concerns have been raised regarding the proposed Pebble Mine’s impact on the water quality of Bristol Bay and its salmon populations. Currently the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is conducting a watershed assessment which may become the basis for certain permitting decisions by the EPA for this project. This assessment is scheduled to conclude by summer 2012 and will be open to public comment. Please be assured that I will keep your concerns in mind should any related legislation on this matter be considered by the Senate.



Thank you for taking the time to share your views. Please feel free to contact me on this or any other matter of concern.

So 1702 twitted and fbed their new tap selections, but withheld Sierra Nevada Hoptimum and Dogfish Head World Wide Stout.

I wasn't prepared, so I went for Oskar Blues Deviant Dale's which is comparable to FW Union Jack, before I looked at the entire tap list.

I enjoyed the Hoptimum, but I would probably get Odell Myrcenary or DfH 90m for a buck less a 4-pack. Still love Green Flash Imperial IPA, even more than their Palate Wrecker which costs more.

Total Wine said they are expecting Hoptimum this week, but I've had my taste til next year's batch. They had DfH WWS for $8.99/12 oz. bottle, which is a buck less than last year. I asked about the DfH 75m, and they had it by request only, one bottle per customer for $8.99/22 oz. minus the $1 off coupon. That one will have to wait until tomorrow after tutoring and getting home in time for the end of the second periods of the Islanders, Elmira, and Kalamazoo games.

Yeah, I'm buzzed.

I try to have him load the dishwasher but he does it wrong. He doesn't understand how to maximize the load. Sigh. Men.

My wife complains that I put the dishes on the counter right above the dishwasher. It's not as much as she'd like to think, but it really is funny. Most times it's because the dishwasher is clean and I don't want to empty it.

But the loading the dishwasher correctly isn't a man thing. It's a spatial thing. My wife can't organize spaces worth crap. When the dishwasher is full and we still have some dishes to fit, it's me that pulls things out and rearranges them. And I'm the one who puts the groceries in the bins at the grocery stores because the people there are incompetent and my wife's view is, "You can do it better and a lot faster than I can, so I just stay out of your way."

It is tough and I only do it if it's necessary. Like once, I couldn't find an HD version of the clone wars anywhere, and I really wanted to see it so I gave in. It sucked, especially a show like Clone Wars.

You probably won't care then.

They are starting to really stray from the book. It's like they are trying to foreshadow stuff, but in the process they are leaving out important things or completely changing stuff all together. This is a huge problem because when they change things they have to deal with the butterfly effect it creates.

This is the problem with books. People will always compare them and the book usually wins.

Director made the decision and he`s fully responsible for it. I don`t think E1 was bad (still DLing the 2nd though) at all.

It`s a TV series, you can`t compress a book into a couple of hours.

Episode 1 was good. Episode 2 was god awful. The sad thing is that the people only watching the show have no clue what they are missing.

It is no longer compressing the book, it is changing facts of what happened. The writers let the success from the first season go to their heads. They have excellent source material and all they have to do is figure out how to compress the events to fit into the show. Instead they decided to change what happens.

I could write the tv episodes for the show. All you have to do is look at the book and write in what needs to stay and what doesn't.

04-03-2012, 07:06
That`s your POV because you read the book. Mine might be completely different, even though, as you say, I may "miss" (depends, I have no desire nor time to read the book) some things.

As long as I like the story line and I`m entertained, idc. It`s your problem and I feel for you but that`s how it is. When the changes become too apparent and they decide to ruin the basic concept, I will be the first one to join you, but I have no reason to atm.

if you call it GoT, you expect a certain level of adherence to the predetermined story line

However, a story is a story, and if it's a different story, but still entertaining, who cares?

that being said, i haven't read the books, don't expect to, and have little interest in the show.

my problem is the first season was so entertaining. like DF said, they did such a good job with it. hell, even the first episode was entertaining. now you get to the second episode and it was like they were demo'ing a bathroom.

for the people that read the books it isn't entertaining and that is a lot of people. there were a lot of people that read the books before the show came out and then a lot that read the whole series after the first season of the show. it is painful to watch. it also makes it very difficult to remember what really happened in the books because scenes appear and you have to sit back and say "did that really happen or was that added?"

i'm fine with leaving scene out, but when you leave scenes out in an already time restricted show so that you can add garbage into the show, then that is when i have a problem.

and thank you. there were differences in the 1st book and season 1, but i didn't feel they were as drastic as in season 2 so far. i'm talking about in one single episode, only two episodes in, there are noticeable differences.

i went from 'can't wait for next weeks episode' to 'i don't even know if i want to continue watching', in a single episode. that is quite impressive that in 52 minutes you can change someone's opinion so much.

Also, people pretend to have similar interests as people in order for them to like you. When I had my facebook I hadn't updated my interests or anything since when I made it, which was when I was 17/18. I can easily say that some of my interests have changed since then.

Well, the thing that bugs me most is the Stannis scene. What happened isn't Stannis Baratheon, he would never do what he did in the book. It explains what is going to happen in the future, but it's wrong. They adhered to the first book beautifully, I thought they'd do the same again in s2 but they haven't.

I can understand a few of the changes for sure, but others just make zero sense. That being said, there were scenes I loved. Arya and Gendry was fantastic, Sallador Saan was hilarious and the Tyrion, Varys exchange.

I wasn't a fan of how they did Arya hiding from the goldcloaks. Shae continues to be out in the open. Bronn was not made commander of the city watch. Joffery didn't order the killing of the bastards. And the icing on the cake for me was Dany's bloodrider being killed. Oh and also the Stannis scene.

The only thing I enjoyed was the Tyrion/Varys exchange, but that was all of 20 seconds of a 52 minute episode.

I had no problem with Arya hiding from the cloaks, that's what happened in the books. Shae shouldn't be in the open and Ros fucking sucks, why the hell is she in the show? Asha is ugly as sin, don't like that actress :laugh: and Balon Greyjoy is hilarious.

I'm OK with Bronn being commander of the city watch as Bywater is only a peripheral character and wasn't really central to any plot points, so why bother casting anyone when it gives Bronn a little more to do.

I know Arya hides from them in the books, it was how it was done. In the show she is 1. barely hiding 2. just jumps down and tells Gendry that they are looking for her right away. It just didn't have the right feel to it. I can't believe I forgot about Asha. I thought the same thing. She should definitely be way more attractive than that. Bronn being commander of the city watch is just weird because he is supposed to be Tyrion's guard. Idk, I just didn't like the feel of it.

What did you think of Joffery giving the order to kill the bastards? And Dany's bloodrider being killed?

Both aren't that big of a deal. If Joffrey ordered the killing of others, then why not the bastards too? I mean, is it really that troublesome? And really, just makes him more of a ****.

No I'm not going to leave my work for now. I'm going to look into a flexible work arrangement where I can work from "home". It might not work out but we are going to try.

There's gotta be country lines that will not start a war. Everyone who has studied a bit of European history knows that nothing starts war more than bad land agreements. Just giving back land as it was in 1967, and dividing Jerusalem...That's gonna kill a LOT of people, because that is war within a year.

Yeah, from the UK website. Apparently it's time locked on their web page, so, there are hackers trying to get the whole second season unlocked and downloadable.

The US HBO Go will get an advanced episode later on this season, so even if the whole season doesn't leak, we'll get another episode early.

Yeah, they're known as wights in the show, but they're called the others in the book, but they didn't want to confuse people with a Lost type reference.

Wightwalkers are actually the dead that come back, the other's army. In the show, they've decided they'd all just be called wights.

Lord Ned Stark
04-03-2012, 20:58
so in the show the wildlings are actually the others.. and the wights are just the zombies that are posessed by the others?

No, the wildlings are Craster and his wives. They're the humans that live beyond the walls. The others are the demons with the blue eyes and seemingly horse legs. The wightwalkers are humans that have died and become zombies.

Remember in season one, Tyrion says the only difference between a wildling and a westerosi is that their ancestors were born on the right side of the wall. Wildlings are just unrefined that's all. Osha, for example, the woman that Robb took captive when Bran was attacked, is a Wildling.

They call it the song of ice and fire. I believe that we as GoT enthusiasts have thought that meant something to do with the characters we know. And I thought that too, but now that I think about it, I believe it's about the others and the dragons. The others being the ice, as they've been gone for 1,000s of years and the dragons being fire who have been gone for a long time too. The fact both are missing for long periods of time cannot be coincidence.

Lord Ned Stark
04-03-2012, 21:20

There is also the possibility that A song of Ice and Fire represents Jon and Dany. Jon being ice and Dany being fire. This would require R+L=J

I will lend you my books if you promise I get them back in the same condition and if I'm not reading them myself. I lent Erik my 2nd copy of A Game of Thrones and he lost it.

Yeah, that's the popular theory. But I still think it has to do with the wights and the drags. I mean, they can only kill the walkers with fire, and the others? With DRAGON glass. There's gotta be a connection there.....

Winter is here and the others and wights will go to the wall and begin to invade the realm. It will be just in time for Dany to arrive with her dragons to fend them off. I also believe that there is a reason Mel talks about how her powers are stronger at the wall. Something will happen with her and Jon for him to do something. It all depends on what happens to Jon after ADWD. After Dany and Jon save the realm they become King and Queen by the people. I'm not sure Jon ever finds out who his mother is.
