Seems like the YOLO meme signifies "I'm going to do something that I know is stupid, and will hurt me more than anyone"

I would think that knowing your time on earth is short would make you want to not waste it recovering from the aftermath of avoidable stupidity

Two finalists for a decent office job, $50-60K range, typos all over both resumes.

Not exactly the same but I just produced a brochure (only 12 pages) an had it professionally edited. Got it back after two weeks and found 14 errors on the first read through.

How can you make a living as an editor when you cannot spot a spelling mistake in 32pt text?!

Establishments that don't accept 100E bills.

Fuck, in NYC not even homeless people will accept $100 bills.

true story: I once saw a medical student from belguim drop a single bill in an elevator. I went into the elevator, I was alone, and picked up the bill to see that it was a 500 Euro note. I was shocked that there was such a high denomination note and did a quick calculation to see how much that was in dollars (a lot).

I almost didn't give the motherfucker back (FINDERS KEEPERS BEYOOOCH), but later that day I saw the student (he was visibly distraught) and started to mess with him, I offered to lend him 500euros with a 5% vig. Turns out the kid lives on 500 Euros for food for two weeks (which in NYC isn't much) I felt like an asshole and gave it back and he hugged me.

I don't get why the US doesn't have $500 and $1000 in regular circulation. It would make drug deals and gambling debts/payouts so much easier.

How much did you pay? I'll edit it for 10% less. smile.gif

Exactly why I had it done! Spelling and grammar are not my forte. True Story: I once got thrown out of an exam because I spelled my own name wrong aged 15. If I'm gonna pay to have a weakness eradicated then I sure as hell want it done properly!

I saw a story on yahoo about how Ben Savage was promising that the new Girl Meets World show would not ruin the legacy of Boy Meets World. Like they are Led Zeppelin or something.

See, you said Led Zeppelin, not Kiss.

the small "outrage" over how much google interns get paid. Why is this only now coming to light, and why is it an issue?
