    I have been once to a sauna with a gay friend...

    Never again...

    Was quite a scary experience..

    He did laugh at my face during the ordeal....

    the equinox in Brooklyn is really bad with the gay sex in the showers/sauna. it has some of the prettiest girl concentration too though.

    That the one that uses base 12 to match the number of digits on your hands? Also you didn't answer the why part, is it some kind of solidarity with Burma and Liberia or just typical American pigheadedness?

    Perhaps... Does this sound like AB-esque?

    Is that why you don't actually go? :confused:

    Fixed, to be more AB like.

    It's not base 12. And it matches the number of months in a year.

    It's not pigheadedness. It's that we're better than you so we don't have to change.

    I was about to use this very same answer in my post above... We use it because we're America, we do what we want because we're the boss.

    Working as a contract attorney. I have been doing it for about a year now.

    First I had a long term contract for six months. At least I had a paycheck, but by the end of the contract I was tired of know nothing managers who literally got out of law school a few months ago lecturing litigators with 8-10 years experience at respectable firms how things should be done. All work is frustrating, but I found this to be particularly ridiculous.

    For the last few months I have been bouncing around firms in the greater Boston area. The pay is decent, but the uncertainty kills me. From getting a call on a Saturday morning telling me "Not to do any more work" to getting a call literally while I was on the commuter rail on the way to the first day to tell me not to go in, this type of stuff is really starting to wear on me.

    I am probably in the minority that doesn't mind the work, but the majority of law firms treat you as subhuman. From lying about when projects are going to end in what seems like an effort to avoid some kind of conflict or confrontation (which of course is ridiculous-- half the time I am back in the same room within a few days) to making contract attorneys sit in what are clearly chairs about to be thrown away and making a fuss when anyone switches one or complains.

    I am being petty to an extent. I live a nice life and I am happy to be getting work. I have been networking and making some moves work wise that will bring an end to this stuff or allow me to do it less, but for at least the next couple months I am going to be living this life. I am really tired of it.

    That sounds pretty bad man. Hopefully your networking contacts pan out and you can get out of that shitty cycle.

    +1, uncertainty and being condescended to are the pits. hope it straightens out for ya.

    the tailor added a think silicon strip to my trousers to keep the line, I did not ask for this. I do not like it. Is this common? How should I go about this now.
