Who here can't find one. I've been to two interviews and been rejected twice. 90% of the places aren't even hiring and my job last summer got cut out of the budget.

I went to about four places, got an interview for one, didn't get second interview.
The other three never went anywhere, even though one was looking solely for someone experience with computers and i fit exactly what they needed... D4mn American employers.

put up flyers saying you can fix computers...

a friend of mine gets like 50 bucks a pop for basically just running anti-spyware programs... and he says he gets plenty of business.

Oh, here's a better thread for me to rant about being unemployed. Anyway, people are pre-judging me due to some personal things I'd prefer not to mention here.

Megadeath is a military term used to describe a million deaths.

Megadeth is a thrash metal band from the San Francisco Bay Region.

I think it would be 'A Megadeath. Like 'A Genocide' or 'A holocaust'

And yeah "Hmmm...Shraif, if you detonate here, and I detonate here..well that's 1,000 off the bat!!"

Best and worst summer job I ever had: standing out on the side of Winston Churchill Blvd, advertising a linens shop down the road.

8 hours a day, 10 bucks an hour. Lots of alone time. Almost sunburned to death.
