    so...that company that interviewed me for the second time today now wants me to interview a third time, this one with the CEO...

    On the one hand, I guess it's good because it means I've been knocking these interviews out of the park, I think. On the other, I just want them to get to the whole offer phase because that is clearly crucial for me. I did provide them with my current compensation and I'm hoping they realize that they would need to be above that for me to jump. I have a feeling they're going to come in low.

    I dunno, this whole thing definitely has some risk. I'm at a pretty good place right now although my my job satisfaction has definitely dipped since I got moved to the impersonal cube farm.

    My sex ed was just pictures of STDs and warnings about how if you have sex you will die.

    Thanks Texas.

    To be fair, everyone who has had sex in the past died at some point.

    Not me so far

    The key words here are "so far".

    Well, if the future is going to resemble the past, then I'm going to live forever.

    Shoot for a 35% raise and talk them up to 25%. Only go back and forth like twice.

    They'll feel like they got a deal.

    Yuppism... is not definable entirely by income or class. Rather, it is a late-20th-century cultural phenomenon of self-absorbed young professionals, earning good pay, enjoying the cultural attractions of sophisticated urban life and thought, and generally out of touch with, indeed antithetical to, most of the challenges and concerns of a far less well-off and more parochial Middle America. For the yuppie male a well-paying job in law, finance, academia, or consulting in a cultural hub, hip fashion, cool appearance, studied poise, elite education, proper recreation and fitness, and general proximity to liberal-thinking elites, especially of the more rarefied sort in the arts, are the mark of a real man.[6]

    Befor. By birth you get different numbers, but also there's slightly different methodologies and there are miscarriages to account for (and possibly if a baby is born when the mother is 20 years and 1 month say, not sure). It ends up fairly similar in order

    2. Mississippi 55.0
    3. New Mexico 53.0
    4. Arkansas 52.5

    11. District of Columbia 45.4
    12. West Virginia 44.8
