  1. So I get Paid 80% of my Salary to do Nothing

    This is as much of an update to my working situation if anything: Currently I work for a company which supplies data to the betting industry.

    The holidays are here and I thought I'd share a few $1 casino chip that were produced in limited quantities just for this time of year.
