    Finally amalgamating with the Colombians, then?

    But seriously, that's a terrible situation. My brother got laid off a few months ago, and it was terrible to watch the way he got depressed so quickly.

    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.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    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.

    A 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

    If that site is in any way representative, 'lad' seems to be a synonym for 'semi-literate misogynist'.

    You guys do a pretty good job of convincing kids you're not actually real people who sometimes laugh when something funny happens.
