Income sources

Sunday night I was over at my parents house. My brother and his wife were trying to do their taxes and having trouble classifying things. Our Dad printed a copy of Publication 525 and found this great little bit on page 32.

Stolen property.
If you steal property, you must reports its fier market value in your income in the year you steal it unless in the same year, you return it to its rightful owner.

I already owe enough taxes. It's a good thing I didn't steal anything last year.

Interesting news about bad behavior or "I'm shocked! Well, not that shocked..."

Last friday morning at 11:01 I got an interesting text message from Bob.

"Sarahbellum has been asked to stop blogging by the company. See her blog or mine."

I worked with Sarah until just over a month ago. Now, I really don't like working for companies that show signs of retardation and I must say that Protherics is just such a company.

I am not surprised that they asked her to stop blogging. It fits right in with their general way of doing things that can be best summed up thus:

"Lets not tell anyone what's going to happen and when we decide to roll something out lets do it so fast that we can't take time to avoid mistakes."

I don't put up with this kind of retarded behavior in the companies I work for. If a company starts getting too retarded I start sending out my resume.

I must admin though, I am biased. After all, I did leave.

Thorw a snowball day!!!

I just noticed Bob's post commemorating throw a snowball day.

Today is the 237th anniversary of the Boston Massacre where some people threw snowballs at British troops and were shot in return.

Some part of me wants to go throw a snowball at some TSA people. Nothing like a reenactment involving the latest oppressors to celebrate those that misbehaved before us.

If you think about it this isn't so different as it may appear. At the time they were throwing snowballs at representatives of their current legitimate government.

I wonder how fast would I be beaten and tried as a terrorist if I tried throwing snowballs at TSA staff today?
