Jeff, Gonch and Mike review this week's news in the amusement industry.

"Battling Beavers" (beavis and butthead laugh)
I was wondering huccumb I was getting Christian Louboutin ads whenever I visit the site....turns out my membership expired. Time to renew...
All reports indicate Ross Perot is still alive btw.
Frank Purdue, however, is not.
^^PURdue is a university. PERdue is a deceased chicken entrepreneur. That is all.
For what it's worth, I've ridden Raptor in Gardaland (B&M Wing Rider) and it's smooth as glass.
Boilermakers.... Might as well be chicken ranchers!
My dad was a Boilermaker..and it had nothing to do with the university. Boilermakers Local 28, bayonne, NJ! They built oil refineries, power plants, things like that.
Place that in the category of things I don't care about.
I never knew that's what a boilermaker actually was. TIL. (today I learned)
Umm... Didn't they make "Boilers" like on Steam engines and such? Things that Boiled water? :-)
Shhhh... I was trying to let Mike know that I found his post interesting.
Glad someone did.
There's also a drink called a boilermaker.
So did Gonch have a job before being a stay at home dad? Would he consider going to work now or does he love the home life?
I've held a couple of 'real' jobs in my life - total crap stuff - jobs, not careers. The bulk of money I've made has always been on my own terms doing my own thing. I'm that guy. It's never been much, but it works for me. I'd be totally bohemian poor if it weren't for my lovely, talented and successful better half.
I've thought about jumping back in to the workforce, but given my personal situation and what options I'd face, I'm not sure the value proposition is there for me. I'd probably be better off continuing to find ways to profit off of me.
We know you will do just fine with any choice you make. It is just nice to see a parent (whichever) stay home with kids and help them learn and grow. That can be so much more important then having a two job family.
I'd love to be in Gonch's shoes. I hate working for other people (making the rich guy richer, if you will), and I'd love to raise some kids. I've never said it before, but good for you, Gonch.Last edited by LostKause, Wednesday, November 16, 2011 12:11 PM
Thanks, guys. :)
I don't see working for the man as "making the rich guy richer" so much as I see it as "making me richer." Of course, I'm not in corporate America and probably never will be, but I was for a few years.
I don't see it as either. I see working for the man as "making enough to provide for my family". Of course, my wife does what Gonch does: stays at home with the kids. I envy them only because I miss a lot of the milestones in my kids' lives. But I don't want the full time job that comes with that. :)
