great post, but for a getbigger, only being worth 15 mil by age 30 is kind of embarrassing.  


Can't even get your coat checked at the centimillionaire club when we meet.

I literally LOLed reading that on the shitter Grin

-looks interesting. Like the IPhone, the display is rather small. I prefer a larger display (old eyes, you know). Another problem for me is that the Nokia Lumia 635 is not offered through Verizon according to their website. Our home is in a "dead zone" unfortunately. Verizon is the only service where we don't have to go stand on the patio for a connection. Guess I will stick with the Samsung for awhile longer.

Too small???l...  Check out the Lumia 1520 which is 6"



Or the Lumia 1320 which is also 6"

I'm confused. Is their a Microsoft phone as opposed to a Droid? Or are you simply using Windows apps on your Droid phone.

Yes its called Windows Phone

How is that working out? I would imagine it could be difficult to run a business from afar.

It is  - but she has good managers watching over it!

I will never understand why anyone would want to feel "high".  I've seen dope smokers and they look like sleepy goofballs (think Shawn Rhoden sans muscle).

No thanks.

That's the thing - I've never been high and never been drink in my life, so I just don't get it I guess lol

They honestly all have their pluses and minuses....

The reason I got into the Android was the same reason that I left Android.... The openness, the hacking, the fragmentation....  I just got so sick of it...  I never was interested in Apple....  And decided to go Full Windows...  Now I love that my....

Desktop
Tablet
Laptop
Phone
Xbox
Home theater PC

One of the things that took me sometime to get used to when I moved out here to California is seeing all these stores selling "herbs" every other block LOL - never saw that in Florida  Grin

I suspected as much. I was just having some fun with you. A lot of people seem to "own" things they don't really. It is a common figure of speech these days.

I do actually own 2 gyms though - in Egypt, but they're both ladies only gyms.  My wife was managing the day to day operations, and I just did back end financial/hr work.  Since we both live in the US now though, she hired people to oversee in our absence.

18  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: How many PhDs in the forum? on: July 08, 2014, 12:50:42 PM

After 3.5 years doing my PhD..... I join the company where everyone, from the CEO to the janitor, is on a first name basis.  Ain't nobody calling me "Dr." lol
19  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: How many PhDs in the forum? on: July 06, 2014, 11:11:36 AM
Cool, but what about the cost of opportunity? Instead of doing a doctoral program one could be working all those years as a masters which is not bad at all Huh

I don't know, but I think that for most cases getting a PhD is not a good idea money wise. But of course if it is what you love to do then go for it. Smiley

You have to remember most PhD students have the tuition waived by working as teaching or research assistants, plus you get a small salary as well ($20,000 per year approx.) so its really not as bleak as you think.  I was also lucky because I had worked for a while beforehand so I had money saved up plus my wife was working full time while I was doing the PhD, as well as the money I was getting for being a research assistant, so we were living quite comfortably during that time.

If you want to be a college professor at a private university, most won't look at you without both a PhD and an exceptional resume of research. Granted, depending on the discipline, you can teach without having a PhD, but it sure helps if your trying to land a spot within Academia.

"1"

That's a very important point, most people that do a PhD do so to teach at a university.  I'm an anomaly in that I went into the corporate world, which is really very very rare.


In what field?

I live in Silicon Valley loll so you can probably guess I work in IT (software development). But my PhD is in industrial engineering

Translation: She got you cheap.     Grin

LOL

I wouldn't have relocated my entire family from Florida to California - for cheap  Wink
21  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: How many PhDs in the forum? on: July 06, 2014, 10:39:35 AM
I think Big Ach got one. It seems like it's not worthy money wise, and for a non-rich person it's more like you do it just because you love science and don't care about being a broke-ass student. Sort of like being a broke-ass bodybuilder but with a higher IQ  <<< bodybuilding related

A phd is a useless piece of crap, street knowledge and experience is what counts.

After being hired for  a new job 6 months ago, when I asked my boss what stuck out on my resume out of 100+ candidates, why did she pick me... she said, "you were the only one with a PhD - Even though I wasn't necessarily looking for someone with a PhD, this made you worthy of further consideration"

 Cool


22  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Cars - what kind of car do you have seriously? on: July 05, 2014, 06:43:37 PM
Not my car (I have the Charger which I posted on page 14 of this thread), this is my parents'.

My dad picked up the Tesla a couple of months back and I finally got to drive it this weekend.  All I gotta say is WOW!!!  First of all, its really weird driving a car that's practically SILENT when its running, you really forget that its on when going around a neighborhood.

But Taking it on the highway and going 0-60 in 4 seconds is an incredible feeling!! Spent a nice few days with that bad boy!!

24  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Why get married... on: July 05, 2014, 03:13:43 PM
Lot of folks on here scared of marriage. These threads come up often. Let me get this.... Is somebody holding a gun to your head and forcing you to get married?  Lol. If you don't want to get married then by all means don't do it.  Its your life.

And if you have to ask...'why get married?' Then you are by no means ready to do so

But to answer your question:

To share your life, values, wealth, happiness, etc. With someone you truly love.
To start a family.
To commit yourself to your soul mate.
To be someone's support system, and to have a support system of your own.
To wake up to a ray of sunshine every morning and know they'll always be there everyday.
To take care of someone and have someone take care of you.
To have someone keep you grounded.
To be challenged intellectually (assuming you didn't marry a complete bimbo)
To have someone cook for you, do your laundry, take care of your child, lol.
To have a second family who you're as close to as your own.
Also doesn't hurt having a second income if your spouse also works (more toys for you).

Sure you could have all these things without getting married but if you're asking why, then I guess something's missing
Sure there are no guarantees that it'll work out but that's the case with everything in life you just have to do your best and take it day by day.


PS I've been happily married for 8 years with one  baby and wouldn't change it for the world!
