That's a lousy going-in position, where you are obviously not wanted, for the sake of "learning vulnerable points"? Who wants to get out of bed for a job like that every morning - regardless of the paycheck? Life is too short.

That boss does sound rather anal doesn't he?

This is one of my favorites for funny job requirements. ... Another reason never to work at a restaurant. ....

You may require the services of one of these professionals (copied from article):
Certified Applied Poetry Facilitator (CAPF): These individuals typically have a bachelor's degree and some experience in psychology. They work primarily with individuals who are not experiencing mental health concerns, but they are trained to recognize when an individual is experiencing distress and may benefit from a referral to a mental health professional. They often work in schools or libraries but are often able to work in a mental health setting with the supervision of a qualified professional
I need a CAPF that's fluent in Robert Frost!

Liberal Logic 101:
Americans shall be required to submit to a background check to exercise a right already guaranteed by the 2nd Amendment while any foreigner shall be allowed into America without submitting to a background check.

I heard of an oil field service company that had a little entry test. It was designed to filter out brown nosers lol.

I'm kind of an amateur CAPF, so here ya go. The road not taken, as written and then in jive...


Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,

And sorry I could not travel both

And be one traveler, long I stood

And looked down one as far as I could

To where it bent in the undergrowth;



Then took the other, as just as fair,

And having perhaps the better claim,

Because it was grassy and wanted wear;

Though as for that the passing there

Had worn them really about the same,



And both that morning equally lay

In leaves no step had trodden black.

Oh, I kept the first for another day!

Yet knowing how way leads on to way,

I doubted if I should ever come back.



I shall be telling this with a sigh

Somewhere ages and ages hence:

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—

I took the one less traveled by,

And that has made all the difference.

All things real Conan I do understand your frustration with this Congress. If I could and it was a factory I would just fire every single one of them. Regardless of they're political party.

I can understand now why Mars would want to blow the crap out of the earth. Heck I would join them.
Just like America had to do to the redcoats. And what really started our civil war.

In that show they are getting plenty of them along with others wanting to escape the commie earth. You know like wanting to get out of CA. About for the same reasons. But the natural born Martians are not real happy
about it and they are very racist and proud. Earth is very afraid of Mars, even the moon residents are
now telling the earth if you illegally board our ships anymore we will ask the Martians to help us.

War between the states but now between the planets. Might happen one day. The Martians have some
really cool looking uniforms though lol.
