You're not a second hand lion you're too ****ing expensive. You bring 30 years of experience to the table? They don't care. They can get some snot fresh outta college for 50% of what you'd need.

Sorry to hurt your feelings, but I have the ability to work anywhere in the world. I don't choose to live in big cities, and I have no need for them. Hell, with Biden looking like the winner, I could even consider another country. I was nearly homeless, completely broke, up to my eyeballs in debt, and I pulled myself up...with NO HELP. I am who I am because I wanted more. GWiz is who she is because she has my genes and the environment that we provided, and she kicks my ass on the world stage. That's what parenting is about.

Again, to sum it up, I have the ability to not live where the homeless choose to live. Having said that, if I find the right homeless person who has drive, but needs a benefactor to help them along, my personal charity will help them succeed.

OK Mike, you caught me. But how does one buy more beer without money.

We all need to make hay while the sun shines, and for now it's shining bright.

And not to offend the others, beer is cheap. I still have a shit ton of that $1,800 scotch.

So...for my birthday last year I bought myself a 21 year bottle for $650 and it was awesome. It lasted me a year, and I had 1 dram left for this year's birthday so I could compare the 21 to the 25.

With the 25 being 3x the cost, I cannot say that it's "worth the price", but I would say that it's worth 2x the price. The smoothness and flavor was off of the charts. There is a reason they call Macallan 25 the Rolls Royce of Scotch.

Having said all of that, I will absolutely spend $2,100 to get another bottle of this Scotch after I share the rest with Simpleman68 and our Amelia Island Corvette peeps. Planning on a rendezvous in the spring.

I have a lot of disposable income, and Scott introduced me to quality scotch. I will continue to indulge as long as I can, but more importantly, share those indulgences with friends and family.

I will gladly share the wealth with anyone. Want a personal zoom meeting to discuss, I'll be happy to share what, and how, I do what I do. Coaching is free. You just need to have the drive.

Back on topic a bit. At work they instituted a new pay raise system. We used to determine top performers and award them with better raises. Some dipshit in HR decided, "Let's give everyone a base percentage raise each year". So we now get the "Blue Ribbon" award to everyone. The top performers get 3% and the low enders get 3%. How hard do you think most work? Not much incentive to bust your ass when he idiot next to you is getting the same pay raise for just getting by. Socialism at it's finest.
