Dude, get a job.

If you can't find one, head to http://www.journeymhc.org/, get some help, then try again to get a job.

They are nice people. They'll get you a shrink, vouchers for medication, and point you in the direction of quality counseling services for free or a sliding scale.

But this is my job.

And I really don't want a second one. I would be afraid that the quality of my work here would suffer.

Sorry, not you. I was referring to Mr. Ryan.

Mr. Juanton,

Mr. Segway Ryan has put aside his critical health issues and has been dedicating his dwindling days to furthering the civil rights cause here in Wisconsin.

I hope you are not attacking him because he is African American?

Actually, I'm pretty sure swimmingupstream needs some counseling too. Perhaps they could do a group therapy thing for people completely devoid of tact.

And welcome back, Juanton, I haven't seen your screen name in awhile. No doubt trying to weasel into Jason's top two, which are scheduled to be released in 2020.

Mr. Ryan,
Please become comfortable with the notion of irrelevance. Additionally, do not make clumsy maneuvers in the hope of gaining relevance ya never had. Hell has no fury as...

I must concur, although if Ben was still here I suspect he might be pointing out some things he is missing regarding the state of our state.
