    You'll have to forgive my incoherent and rambling posts..I'm a little brainfried today...just got back from MetalCamp.

    Everything you said is 100% true. I do miss, however, the employment of the US. Here is a bloody mess. I'm having to sue my former employer for not wanting to pay me the money he owes me, the money I have a signed contract for. They'll do anything here to fuck you. Of course I'll get my money, but I have to break my balls all over the place to get it. In the US, it was more like, "You work here now. You work these hours. You do this job. You get paid." End of story. You have project contracts and full time contracts here. Basically, you work for someone for a specific amount of time, say, 6 months. No benefits, just taxes paid. After that, he can decide to re-hire you or let you go. If you are a lucky SOB who actually can get a full time tempo indeterminato contract, you better hold on with both hands because it's like the holy grail here. That means 14 paychecks a year, 30 days vacation, and you cannot be fired. It's kinda like tenure. However, it costs companies a fortune for each person and that's why it's so rare. Annalisa has that contract working in a computer graphics company and she has great benefits. Also, when you leave those jobs, you will have accrued about 5000 euros every 4-5 years or so, and you can roll it over in your next job if you wanted. Sweet.

    Other than that, work hours, environment, etc. is about the same.

    And now I have no idea what I was talking about.

    no, i just wanted more explanation than using that one dude as an example. i guess i am California-centric, even Northern California-centric in my would view. i dont really care what happens in the rest of the country, let alone the rest of the world. im mostly concerned with the west coast haha. hell, i even compare everywhere i go to the mostly liberal, cow pasture and vineyard county i grew up in. but so what? i guess i was just trying to figure out what your point was, or how this is so much more prevalently american.

    edit: the above paragraph was not intended to be jerky-sounding

    noticing the difference was one of the most interesting (and frustrating) aspects of my travels through Europe. i enjoyed myself, and definitely would love to go back, but it gave me a new appreciation of California as well.

    Guys, guys, stop fighting. There's not much of an argument anyway. Jesus died for our country.

    With a cute, big ol' clown nose on his face. I'm thinking about starting up a Jesus the Clown business for children's parties. The disappearing nail trick gets them every time. And you should see their faces when I use the hole in my hand to drain meat.
