Re: What's your day job?

I think children are crueller than adults or rather that they have less understanding of social norms etc. and just work on instinct (kill, maim, dominate, humiliate).

Re: What's your day job?

I believe children are simply more honest and express themselves accordingly. 'Cruelty' is an implication of willful intent.

None...I'm unemployed and slowly draining my retirement fund.  I have been looking for quite awhile, but no offers yet; very frustrating.

@KrunchTime,

I'm sorry to hear that. It can be quite discouraging (I know). I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for you.   smile

...yes, but also share, touch, enjoy... these come on instinct, too, ungoverned and sometimes in a way that we adults have to restrict/restrain.

and i think kill & maim is a little over the top.
same species don't kill each other.

Went through that a couple times myself; last time was nearly a year out of work in 2009-2010, at the deepest depths of the Great Recession; hopefully the recovering economy will let you find a new job faster.

For now, especially at this time of year, you can at least take comfort in your family and home.

Re: What's your day job?

If you've been married longer than the typical honeymoon, you know the look.   tongue

LmFAO. The dreaded "look" ... if you've been in a relationship w any woman, for virtually any length of time someone will know of "the look". Pretty sure it's a part of the female genome, something deeply ingrained and primal. big_smile

Thank you, Panda.  It is discouraging especially given the fact that I've been looking for almost 2 years now.  I've had more interviews this year than I did last year, though, so that is somewhat encouraging.

Thank you pvsage.  This is my second time of being unemployed.  The first occurrence was when I left the military.  So both times were by my choice, not due to a layoff.  I resigned from my last job.  Lest anyone be tempted to say I was stupid for resigning, the rest of the team I worked with was let go 6 months later.  One could say I saw the writing on the wall.

Taking comfort...hard to do when I watch my retirement fund slowly being drained.  I've went through over half of it already.

Impressive, I can't teach, never have and never will. Also not at that level.

the closest to dolphiny I've got was to work on fisheries ecology research for and (for a while) after my MSc.
#yes, fully aware that dolphin are not fish wink #

For my PhD I switched to freshwater carbon cycling dynamics. So I now mostly focus on algae, aquatic plants, and a lot of life-forms I suspect most people here have never heard of.

And good catch with the avatar. Avid cycling fan here, both as a pro sport and as a commuter.

so, jobwise, does it have to do with keeping rivers and lakes clean?
and how much of it is sitting behind a desk/computer/telephone, and what's the rest?
(sorry, i'm always interested what the actual work behind a job name is)

Re: What's your day job?

Mainframe system support service in an Spanish electric company (sic).
Not a real friend of coding, but I am used to JCL and REXX language (really bad at REXX, by the way).

In linux since '00 cause of my unix teacher at my IT degree. Started with RedHat, switched to Fedora when RH went Enterprise, then played a bit with Debian and Ubuntu (I get rid so fast, in 10.04 I guess, then back to Debian). Nowadays I decided to make Elementary OS my desktop system and bring back to life an old netbook with Crunchbang/BunsenLabs, after trying to minimize lubuntu and debian to its limits and finding out someone did it much better and named it Crunchbang.
