    He seems to look down on careerbuilder and monster, I assume programming forums with 15 year old work-for-hire sections are part of his non-traditional recruitment methods.

    When he says he has a "superlative approach" does he mean that he's better than most, or that he's overblown and exaggerated? Ironically, there are two definitions to that word.

    The only way we'll get to $2 gas again is if we convert to the metric system. But given Newt's politics I think if that were to occur he'd lose it over excessive government regulation of our free market unit system.

    If I were to go and top up my tank (diesel) and went to the cheapest place I know of that's not out of my way I'd be paying the equivalent of 2.27USD. That's per litre, by the way.

    Had to say that Dan's comment:

    "I'm here because I happened to read your post and rolled my eyes so hard I gave myself vertigo"

    From the recruiter post made me fight to not laugh too loud and concern my coworkers, I'll have to remember that line!

    Ok, this thread shows the sheer levels of stupidity of some posters. Note that a number of replies to this thread appear to be cut/paste jobs. The really humorous part is that they seem to have done some google searches and cut/paste their answers, not realizing that the same answer was already posted by others in the very same thread!

    In case the mod decides to prune some of the replies, here they are, quoted for your amusement:

    In case you're wondering if some of the other posters (e.g.) johan1 or vincewicks are original, I'm sorry to disappoint once again:

    I've been plagued by Arugula for far too long. Here's just one example of how ludicrous his posts can be. They're all this barely-formed stream of consciousness, randomly quoting other posters without using quotation marks or [ quote ] tags, and then rhetorical questions he answers anyway.
