I suck at math, for real. But I'm glad Janelle is taking the time to help tutor me in Algebra.

People can say I suck at Math or science and it's all good. Two subjects I am good at.

However if you writing skills suck you must be stupid.

Math and Science are harder by comparison. I would ask you to tutor in math but somehow I don't think the lessons would be as enjoyable :devil:

Ran into this problem a few weeks ago. Went to pick up a pizza and the bill was $12.78. Gave the "I want $15 an hour" person $20.03 expecting to get back $7.25. The person looked at me and what I gave her and panicked. I saw her look around for several seconds, and then shouted to her co-workers "where is the calculator? I need the damn calculator now".

It was amusing and quite sad to watch. Could not help but wonder if she would really be worth $15 an hour.


If at first you don't succeed, then sky diving is not for you.

Someone stole my dictionary. Now I am at a loss for words.

If Apple made a car, would it have windows?

Ban shredded cheese. Make America Grate Again .

Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day.  Deport him and you never have to feed him again.

How much do you think she's worth?

She wouldn't work for me, but if I become a liberal I would pay her $25 an hour.

Doesn't have to be a political thing. I work for the government and don't make 25 dollars an hour. I think people need to make money to live, you can't live on 7 dollars an hour.

I've got three things to say about this:

1. She should be back in elementary school, not working.

2. People who aren't good with numbers don't deserve to live.

Florida currently has more concealed-carry permit holders than any other state, with 1,269,021 issued as of May 14, 2014

The liberal elite ... know that the people simply cannot be trusted; that they are incapable of just and fair self-government; that left to their own devices, their society will be racist, sexist, homophobic, and inequitable -- and the liberal elite know how to fix things. They are going to help us live the good and just life, even if they have to lie to us and force us to do it. And they detest those who stand in their way."

2. People who aren't good with numbers don't deserve to live.

1. Some people can't do math equations in their heads, it happens.

2. If you want my life, come and get it. I'll have a Mai Tai waiting for you...

You mean that place where cooks make 60,000 a year? Please enlighten me...
