Re: Meditation

I'm fairly susceptible to stress and, as an extension, headaches, mild depression, and insomnia. A few months ago I became interested in meditation as a possible aid, and after trying a few different methods I found one that seems to work well for me. I've found that, not only does it put me in a m...

Re: Need help concerning over-worked friend

Well, when you partition what's could happen, it falls into two categories: She either keeps at it or leaves.

Now, she doesn't exactly have to do porn (not that there's anything wrong with that), but it doesn't sound like she's a way out other than the literal one; to leg it and do something else.

Re: Need help concerning over-worked friend

This really reminds me of Asia Carrera. From the lore, it is said that she legged it to do porn as an escape from the uncomfortable strictures of her oppressive parents.

A company kindof has to budget for payroll, and that's a lot easier if everyone maintains a consistent daily time schedule.

Telling staff they can stay as long as they want to get their work finished is essentially writing a blank cheque.
