    Barely enough to make ends meet? Were you supporting a family?

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    Dude, I made less than that in 97. We had two kids at home then, my wife wasnt working so I paid all the bills including two car payments and insurance for both of them, and still had money to take the wife and kids out from time to time.
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    I'm not sure if anyone has mentioned this yet, but there is a good chance your benefits package will be non-negotiable. So, essentially if the end dollar in your pocket is not what you would want after they make you an offer, you'd be best off negotiating salary, because asking for free healthcare probably isn't an option.
