  1. Worst Job Interview You Ever Had.

    My senior year of college, some firms brought in talent scouts to interview new hires. I interviewed with Strong Capitol Management. With them, if you interviewed well, the company would fly you out to Wisconsin to go through the full interview process. I made that trip. While there news broke that the CEO and other senior managers there were being investigated by SEC for some shady mutual fund dealings. The next day I purposely bombed the interview because there was no way I was going to jump on that sinking ship. One question was, "What is a tough decision I had to make and what process did you use to come to the decision?" I rambled on about breaking up with a high school girl friend and how hard it was for me. At the end of round robin interview process they brought all of the prospects in to give us an "Everything is fine" talk. The next spring the CEO ended up paying a fine personally and was barred for life from the industry. I will say the campus was beautiful.
  2. Nurse arrested for doing her job

    Also, from what I've heard, there was already blood drawn. Fairly standard procedure to get a blood sample upon admittance. The officers just needed to wait for a warrant if they wanted access to the samples. There was a SCOTUS ruling siting when a blood sample may be taken from a person from law enforcement. They are the reasons the nurse gave; With a warrant, with consent, if the person is under arrest. That is it. I think the guys screwed up. If you watch the released body cam footage, they realize it later.
  3. I'm pretty sure he stuck around long enough to hear it the first time. There wasn't really anyone who he could tell it to that would have mattered or better context. With the conversation between him and Sam, it made sense to reveal the name to us as the audience. Also, I think the show runners are trying to leave things for GRRM to reveal. Hoping he would finish Winds. He hasn't so they had to push forward.
  4. Jon is basically the same age as Dany.
  5. Terence Crawford

    That body shot was brutal.
  6. CB Brendan Radley-Hiles [Nebraska Commit]

    As long as Kaplan or Phoenix aren't in play, I'm not too worried.
  7. Less than one week to go ....

    I treated this weekend grocery run like a impending snow storm. Tri-City area is said to be inundated with a large influx of visitors.
  8. But they didn't get married so the point is mute. Not only did they not get married, Rhaegar broke his previous engagement to run away with the daughter of his family's enemy. (I don't buy that he kidnapped and raped her). The only reason Jon is king of the north is because everyone thought he was Ned's only living son, and they're living in exceptional times. Dany is alive and well and has the only claim to lead the Targaryens as long as that's true and they're following the previous rules of succession.
  9. Bastards don't have claims to thrones. He has zero claim. If we pretend his parents were married, no one on earth knows or thinks they were married except maybe Bran, and like I said it probably wasn't a legitimate marriage anyway. Neither side wanted it. Robert would have killed both of them if he thought his woman was in the relationship willingly (married or not), and the mad king probably would have too. I don't think there will be any conflict, unless it's from Dany being paranoid, because Jon is a very reluctant ruler in the first place. (I think she will be thrilled to have a living relative). King of the North is a bit different since it's a brand new title, and also because the Starks were decimated. At one point everyone thought there was no male heir to the throne. They also thought Sansa was lost to the Lannisters forever and Arya was dead. That left literally no one from the strongest house in the North except Jon. So he, a bastards, becoming their ruler was only because of extremely odd circumstances. Also, when Stannis offered to make Jon a legitimate son of Ned, he turned him down. Agreeing to rule the north was a big leap, and I think Sansa will end up doing that even if Jon survives. Jon wouldn't accept being king of everything. What he would accept, IMO, is ruling the north for Dany, or giving Sansa a strong recommendation and helping bring them to some kind of agreement. That ending wouldn't be disappointing at all, given all the sh#t everyone's gone through. From what I have read is that info like marriages, even runaway ones are information that maesters in the citadel keep records of deep in their libraries. And I bet it's one of those out of site out of mind deals. Or at least that's how Reddit seems to think the whole thing probably went down. Yeah, the r/asoiaf reddit is a deep cave of conspiracies. The maester comment is correct. Logs like this are kept as a record and only really brought back out if there is a legitimate claim. I don't think Jon will want the Iron Throne either. I'm just saying that there is a better than likely chance that R & L got married thus making Jon a more legitimate heir. From what we know, the kidnapping and raping was just a narrative that Robert to legitimize his hold on the Throne. Creating the story that ALL Targs are bad is an easier sell than I lost my girl to a pretty boy.
  10. But they didn't get married so the point is mute. Not only did they not get married, Rhaegar broke his previous engagement to run away with the daughter of his family's enemy. (I don't buy that he kidnapped and raped her). The only reason Jon is king of the north is because everyone thought he was Ned's only living son, and they're living in exceptional times. Dany is alive and well and has the only claim to lead the Targaryens as long as that's true and they're following the previous rules of succession. We have no info on if they ran off and got married. It's heavily hinted that they may have from what I've looked up. There are several hints that Jon isn't even his real name. If you watch the season finally from last year, "His name is ...(inaudible)" her lips do not say Jon. Something could be revealed later via Bran.
  11. Thought this thread might enjoy this find.
