More like lol Rhode Island. Must be nice to be a former baseball player, they'll just give you tons of money even though you are obviously grossly unqualified to manage a company that makes the most complex type of video game.

Curt Schilling is a big douchebag clown. Feel bad for the 300+ employees who were doing a lot of good work and are now jobless though.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Forum Discussion

seems like a fairly normal reaction to feel bad for someone who loses their job due to their boss's incompetence

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Forum Discussion

Apparently some hobo ate another hobo's face before he was shot to death by police, and it happened pretty close to where I live. People are speculating that it's the beginning of the zombie apocalypse. I have been preparing for this moment my whole life.

Kind of look at it the other way, their boss being dumb with money was the reason they had good paying jobs the last 5 years, and they have good experience now so it not like they are screwed.
