commented on The Worst Jobs We’ve Ever Had
I spent 4 summers from 12-16 detassling corn in IL. That was pretty bad, but the only legit work you could get that young living out in the country. It's cold and wet in the morning, as you're either walking or being dragged through the corn, complete with bugs and big spider webs. By noon it was 115 degrees with no shade.
One summer home from college, I worked at a temp agency and was placed at a plastics factory. My job was to watch dental toothpicks drop out of a machine 6 at a time and inspect for defects. The machine did not stop for lunch or breaks, so there would be a huge pile when I got back. That was the worst.

The Germans, Belgians and Brits haven't come up with anything new beerwise in 100+ years. They make some good beers and I respect their contributions, but no way is their beer better than ours. And by ours I mean Colorado. Best place for beer in the world.

There is some stuff left at Cheyenne Mountain but not much. Most of that now takes place at Schriever, and to a lesser extent Peterson.

The girlfriend and I went to the open call for extras in Durango last Spring. Didn't get a callback (we were'nt weird looking enough,) but Durango is a nice place. Tons of outdoor activities, a scenic railroad and 4 breweries.
