I thought he was a charity worker of sorts?
No, he works for drugstore.com.
Jeez that sucks man. He's had a tough couple of years hasn't he.

RIP Fardin Qayyumi and Craig Walsh - true icons of CricketWeb.
It's not a nice feeling. Especially when you can see it happening and you try and do everything possible (ok not everything) to keep your job, but in the end there is nothing you can do.
Is he getting decent severance? It might be enough to keep body and soul together. I can't imagine a lack of demand for web developers.
He's not a developer, he's a pharmacy tech. Yea, he's down a bit at the moment because he just got good news on his cancer not too long ago, and now he'll be losing his insurance. He can go through COBRA and the new high risk insurance pools will kick in (thank goodness for the healthcare bill) July 1st, but we have no idea on the premiums. It'll likely run to be over a thousand dollars (or more) per month, which combined with having no job (and harder to find another job since he can't do heavy lifts and work in a warehouse or anything anymore since the cancer), means I'll probably have to get off my academic semi-vacation and increase my hours at a real job.

TRUE LAD - the home of lad banterA mate, on 99 birds shagged, takes back a girl he'd been for drinks with. We (his housemates) all hide behind furniture in the living room when he came back. He starts his foreplay and asks her if she'd mind if he wore cricket gloves whilst they had sex, since it was a bit of a fetish thing for him. She looked confused but said fine, he goes into bag and puts them on. Then asks if he can wear pads, then finally a helmet. Fully padded up, proceeds to enter her and after about 3 minutes (LAD) comes, flicks on the main light switch. We all pop up from behind the sofa with rousing applause and cries of "THATS THE CENTURY!!", he grabs his cricket bat, removes his helmet and acknowledges the crowd. She bursts into tears, dresses quickly and runs out of the front door. She left her pants. LAD

Nah, saw a thread about it posted on Sortitoutsi.
Assembly this morning - a child proudly announces that summer is "the season of dust and incest".
Spending the next five minutes trying to laugh silently and not catch any other children's attention
Watching the other staff trying to do the same and getting progressively more and more amused
