On 1 Thing Will Make You Jump (Jump)

Similar thing happened to us with the breast pump. We had a good laugh about the nurse teaching my wife to 'hand express', which is like extracting oil from a well with a long straw

On Will Spoon You For Money

While we're talking about paying money for weird things: I tried one of those sensory deprivation 'float tanks' in seattle, not knowing what to expect, and I found it really therapeutic. I felt hyper-centered and relaxed for a week afterwards.

On Getting Sugar Cereals As A Gift

My parents were very strict about healthy food EXCEPT I basically ate Reese's Peanut Butter Puffs my entire childhood. It's literally a bowl of chocolate candy, and I will always be grateful that they caved and allowed it.

On My Day Interviewing For The Service Economy Startup From Hell

"as is BYOD (bring your own device) at both major corporates and startups alike". This is true EXCEPT that companies usually pay the monthly bills on the cell phones, which makes it a win/win in the eyes of most employees

On My Day Interviewing For The Service Economy Startup From Hell

@ronswansonluva very good point. I guess, beyond the personality issues at play in this article, the bigger question is 'what value do these new startups provide'? Not all existing industries will benefit with technology bolted onto it. High demand skilled laber jobs like tiling floors, electrician or plumbing work are already in demand. What benefit can a website like this add? Even in the case of cleaning services - what value are they adding? Are we (white people) really so helpless now that we can't operate a web search for a cleaner - we need a smart phone app?
