I would, but online poker is illegal in NY and I don't have a big enough bankroll/enough assets to take trips to Mohegan or Atlantic City on the regular.

Yeah I don't know what I've been waiting for. Morrowind is one of my favorite games ever, and I beat Oblivion this past semester at school just so I could get to Skyrim for the summer, and never made the move to pick it up for some reason

I remember when I first heard the song/saw the video for "Pressure" I was like OK, this song rocks pretty decently, and I've got a thing going for bands with females in them right now, and she's pretty cute...wait a minute, what is that?

Not a huge fan of bands with female singers (Blondie, Heart, and early No Doubt my notable exceptions), but it's not even that. My sister grew put of them 2 years ago and she's about to turn 13. I consider them an adolescent band. So LOL @ you Bob Richards.

That girl has got some pipes.

She's also pretty cute.

There is enough masculinity in my ipod that I'm allowed a guilty pleasure.

Awh shucks! Good ol' hockey where nobody does anything bad except head shots, elbowing, sucker punches, low blows, spearing and a few other things.

CBS says at least 10 people shot...no confirmation on death toll aside from shooter who has been confirmed dead.

FBI: "Shooting has no initial connection to terrorism"

LOL what? I'm pretty sure a guy shooting 10 people in the middle of NYC is considered terrorism. I doubt he did it by accident.

Now they're saying 2 confirmed deaths, so you were spot on. 2 dead (including the gunmen) and 8 injured.

EDIT: CBS: "Disgruntled employee shoots and kills manager at midtown store"

Any of our fine HF brothers find themselves within a marketing/pr/advertising/product management career whose firm is hiring entry-level employees?

Otherwise it's back to grinding out on TeamWork Online searching for a sales position in sports so I can finally break into that gig
Funny you mention that :
I have two degrees, one in Mechanical Engineering, and one in Industrial Design. What I want to do in life is be a toy designer, specifically in nerf guns. While doing my ID degree I took a concentration in Product Design, which I wanted to become my entry level career path. My brother, a software engineer, worked at a company who had a product management group and wanted an intern, so I became an intern for them. After the internship was over, I decided to look into PM since I really enjoyed my time there. Heres what you should know about PM:
Employers dont really hire entry level PMs. They lean towards people with 5-10 years experience in QA/UX design to assume the positions.
That of course didnt really stop me from searching, and in some cases I did find openings for jr PMs, but the competition is really high.
Another thing I've come across is that employers right now are learning that hiring business minded PMs is not the best way to run their company. They are changing from that and are hiring more technical people, people who for example know what an API is. The reason being is that as a PM you will be meeting with QA teams/Software Engineer teams/UX teams/ upper management. Three of those four teams will be tech savvy, and to communicate with them better its better if you understand the lingo and can (very simply) diagram/program it out for them. Being a non technical PM gives those teams another guy standing around them asking "whats with xyz, can we send it to qa yet?" , which gets annoying - they already have those guys with upper management.
Im not trying to get you out of the field, Im just giving you a headsup in the way the field is moving.

Ill add more if I can remember any - Im still lookingfor PM jobs, but I've ended up (probably ended up, waiting for the offer) taking a product design job at Makerbot, which would help in my eventual PM search later.
