That's pretty rich you calling the fisherman a jerk. YOU are the jerk for buzzing people on the pier trying to enjoy a nice day fishing. Take your little toy and play somewhere else. Buzz me when I'm trying to relax, and I'll use all means at my disposal to eliminate the nuisance up to and including buckshot.

This is my childhood, a big part of my childhood. I knew my ABCs and my numbers through 10 before starting kindergarten thanks to Sesame Street.
It's Mopar or no car, baby. You can have the Mustangs and Camaros. I'll take the Challenger SRT Hellcat in Sublime Green.
Um ... where's the last verse, guys?
1.3 million views. It needs millions more. Such refreshing clarity.
This is precisely the common sense that needs to sweep across our nation.
I'm sad that live versions seem to omit the last verse. Guess I'll stick with the studio version.
HP Master Technologist
Unix, Linux, Storage, Networking, Performance & Tuning, System & Application Integration, Backup & Recovery, Troubleshooting, Supervision & Management
- Hewlett-PackardHP Master Technologist, 2013 - presentAs a multidisciplinary professional currently delivering consulting for Data Protector and StoreOnce inline deduplication technologies, I routinely utilize my expertise in storage, networking, system design, and physics to solve broad-based performance and compatibility issues. Although I am still an individual contributor, my work is now focused more keenly at the organizational and global levels. Whether it is through online publishing or one-on-one mentoring, I thoroughly enjoy sharing what I know for the benefit of others. That naturally spurs my desire to expand my proficiency even further. I am called upon for my expertise and unique skills by a plethora of HP organizations including Technical Marketing, Product Development, Implementation Services, Sales, Escalation Managers, and Channel Partners. I have also trained additional resources to support an ever-expanding BURA demand generated by the success and increasing adoption of Data Protector and StoreOnce. You may be wondering what it takes to become a Master Technologist at HP. There is quite a bit to it, actually, I was promoted through unanimous consent after a formal nomination and review process by global HP business unit leaders. The review was centered upon three main principles: Continuity & impact of contributions, breadth & depth of knowledge, and leadership My entire 25+ years of engineering were examined -- much of which elapsed prior to my current tenure with HP. I am humbled by the recognition and committed to learn even more.

"In vain have you acquired knowledge if you have not imparted it to others." --Deuteronomy Rabbah (c. 450–900)
There are four Jim Turners in Edmond, OK. I'm not the lawman, the doctor, or the lawyer. I'm the engineer. Although I have made technology my life's work, my family is what matters most to me. My wife, daughter, and son continue to be a blessing beyond description. I enjoy music and own Pink Floyd's entire discography. Rush ranks up there pretty high, too. Second place belongs to the greatest blues man the world has ever known: Stevie Ray Vaughan. Coming in at a close third place is Southern Rock a la Lynyrd Skynyrd, Marshal Tucker Band, Molly Hatchet, .38 Special, CCR, and The Allman Brothers.
I wear bowties.

Decor was cool. Service was good. Prices were meh. Steak was awful. I've had a better steak at a number of places including Texas Roadhouse, Saltgrass, Lone Star, and even Applebee's. The cut Spudder offered was nearly void of any real flavor and filled with fat and gristle. The sides were equally dismal. Utterly absurd for the cost. Spudder is obviously *trying* yet failing to be a high-end steakhouse. Big waste of money. We will not be going back.

I visited Al's Metal Recycling today and dropped off a clothes dryer, a car radiator, and a bunch of aluminum cans. Everyone was kind, patient, and very helpful. It was a pleasant experience, and I look forward to doing business with Al's again soon.

Generally good service and food, but don't order the chicken strips. They are AWFUL! Dry, tasteless chicken with breading that would make grade school cafeteria food seem like a culinary delight. If you want great chicken tenders, go to Charlestons. The chicken tenders there are wonderful.

Service was good. Food was okay. Tea was great as usual. So why only two stars? That's for the IDIOT who designed such a large-capacity dining area combined with facilities that only have one commode in each restroom. It's really nice watching my lunch getting cold while I stand in line for 10 minutes to take a leak. The lines were three deep for both men and women. Utterly stupid design!
