    Ok, so let’s say you’re an undergrad. You have a class where you need to establish a business plan for obtaining funding to launch said business. You’ll need to do a 40 page formal business proposal for your group project. This is outside your realm of comfort.

    Now imagine you have an MBA student in your class, who has told you that he/she has done NUMEROUS lengthy case studies and is generally unfazed by the assignment.

    Here’s the kicker – the MBA tells you “I have a great business proposal, and I have a lot of info. I can basically do the entire project on it. Just agree with me”.

    When the idea is pitched to the professor, would you argue against it?????

    Yeah, I had a complete 50 page presentation. They knew this. In fact, they loved this. The project was effin’ 90% done already! They all said “yeah, let’s do that, it’s a great idea!” Then, when I pitched the idea to the professor last night, MY OWN GROUP started questioning me and adding so much to it that they made it so complex the idea collapsed upon itself! The prof rejected it, and now we’re back to square one.


    HOW EFFIN’ MORONIC CAN YOU BE???? I’m not mad or anything – the project is still easy enough that I can pull it off with no problem. It’s just to asinine to me, I can’t really comprehend it.

    Wow, your experiences kinda remind me of my own.

    I absolutely HATE group-project work!

    I'm irritated with parking cars. Turning my head is getting annoying.

    I just applied for an Electronics Technician position at a gigantic government owned corporation which shall remain nameless.

    I gotta take the test and it'll go on from there. (Yes I do have connections, but we won't talk about those.)

    Wish me luck.

    Depends...

    Windows: Push the PRT SCR button, then paste it into Microsoft Paint, save as .jpg.

    Mac OS X: Hit Command+Option+3 and the picture saves to the desktop (or whereever you prefer screenshots be saved to.)

    The old phpBB site was getting slammed by a huge spam bot query that was pulling millions of rows. Needless to say it was destroying our server CPU quota and causing this mayhem.

    HOPEFULLY the issue was corrected and THANK YOU BENNETT!!

    But atleast you can physically still get on the site, albeit the server busy...not like before where you couldn't even get close to the site.

    On another note, I don't remember typing "off with his head" last night......

    Now if you'll excuse me....(blarg)
