She is blonde, and she can be a little dingy sometimes. But she can do a lot of things that I only wish I could do. Of course, if I had time to take every cool class that's offered all over town, I would probably be a jack of all trades, too.

Cool story bro.

I find vegans to be pretentious and uptight and most of them have a holier than thou type attitude. Perfectly good delicious food is prepared by hard work for a feast gathering but they are too good and special to eat it. If I had any feelings, I'd almost be offended by their refusal to eat the homecooked food. It's pretty rude.

Animals taste delicious and people that don't eat at least some of them are on my not to be trusted list .

The thirteen passengers listened to the pilotís muffled story of a gold filled plane lying somewhere below. The flight to Dillingham, Alaska from Kenai.

I was absolutely busting at the seams because the real work had finally come.The salmon were running. To everyone on board that meant red gold! Naively, nobody on seemed to doubt their ability to handle the sixteen to twenty hour work days ahead of them.The salmon roe is handled separately almost secretively in another building. Every job is very repetitive and requires standing all day.

I have issued myself a challenge to use "flaming cherubim" in a sentence every day for a week.

Up front it is, for now. On the bright side, necessary steps are being taken to avoid an environmental cleanup should the POS ship go aground during a storm, and we know that storms, very soon, will begin rolling in.

FFS.

Contested Bristol Bay salmon ends up in Alaska landfill - KTVA 11 - The Voice of Alaska

Quote:
A lawyer representing the seafood company says the fish was saturated with diesel by the vessel's crew.

The captain of the vessel has disputed the testing results and says the company wanted to collect on an insurance claim.
The only person who's behaved responsibly during this entire debacle has been the captain, so my money's on him being the one telling the truth. I'm one of this outfit's creditors, and as such, I get the associated court documents, and something tells me I'll be seeing one involving insurance fraud in the future.

It bothers me somewhat that there are so many know-it-alls (most of whom know less than nothing about the seafood industry) screaming and crying for the crew's blood over this. The crew had already fled, for the most part, and they were still hoping to be paid when the fish finally sold. The fish was most likely ruined within several days after being caught -- their freezers and processing equipment were seriously malfunctioning and potential buyers weren't touching the fish because of all the liens on it.

Pretty sure Larry Lang paid someone to dump the diesel on already rotten fish so he can collect insurance. He's so goddamned dumb he probably thought he'd get away with it.

To blame a green crew he'd already ripped off is reprehensible in my eyes.

Just as I suspected...when they finally found someone to buy the fish, it didn't pass a basic "smell test" when they tried to offload it, and it was deemed unfit for human consumption. The diesel wasn't a part of the picture then; the fish just smelled rotten, because it was rotten. But the insurance wouldn't have paid that off.

Crazy people coming at you with a knife, or at the very least saying or doing crazy things that make you uneasy because they have a knife. I have heard that these sorts of jobs are for the mentally ill and if you are working here and you are not mentally ill you will have a VERY rough time and may be assulted.


I have heard these sorts of jobs are like pseudo chain gang jobs where most of them are ex cons etc.


If you are a reasonably intellegent upstanding member of society you would never consider these jobs as it would make no sense.
