I think we're paying for the engineering. I'm sure it costs a lot of money to design planned obsolescence to kick in after the warranty expires

I want to delete him, but also curious what stupid stuff he's going to say leading up to the election.
lol, even many conservatives would find a statement that stupid.

Well, maybe I should say SOME would find it stupid.

I want to be paid to browse E46Fanatics.

I got in trouble for checking my email the other day. Boss was like, "so what are you doing", I go to Solidworks and say "Making an exploded view and parts list for the breech rotation mechanism", Boss is like "You need to enter your password for that?"

"I was checking email" lol,

"yeah, should have said that. You are only allowed to do that during your break."

Where is Kalim going? Can I go too?

Too many posts to manage. F5 key will wear out.

Where will you be?

I browse E46F as much as I do because I get work done usually long before the deadline, with superior accuracy. Consequently, I have to make myself "look busy" during dead moments because nobody wants to see employees lounging around or chatting it up with cube mates. I'm on the he's-typing-on-the-computer-so-he-must-be-working phase often times.

Also, you were just plain lying. And lying horribly at that. Can't you excel at anything?

That said, I loath accounting. After years of working here, I know enough to never work in such a place again.

I love watching that video. Makes me cringe every time. Especially with the people that come out of the cars...

Soft suspension, large sidewalls, relatively tall narrow bodies.
