taking what? drugs, a ride downtown, a course in comparative literature of the 12th century.

I love it when people have a name that matches their job. I talked to an electrical engineer with the last name Power today, and that amused me.

Ten bucks?

Sheet.

Sir, I've spent large larger, sir-squared.

To the tune of needing to teach everyone.

I just wish it paid something.

It doesn't.

And I'm not even doing it currently.

WTF?

MTF.

I'll go out on a limb here and say I'm stumped as to why this fine soul didn't branch out and leaf the occupation of tree trimmer while he still had a chance of making the deciduous to be something else. His coniferous duty was rooted in making the cut. He, alas, did knot.

Maybe if his name had been Cleaver or Feller or Notch? Why would anyone ever assume someone with the name of Branch would be good at cutting them off rather than growing out from them?

Branch wasn't meant to be an endorsement, it was a command. Like, "Branch out into a desk job- desks are made of wood! Why, you could cut costs and buzz through forests of paper to succeed! But don't do anything with trees or heavy machinery, you'll kill us all."

For those people that are running Notscript or something similar you have to allow newsday and pagesuite to get to the pop-up where you can use one of your 5 free views.

or ...

taking down the limb at 89 Orange Tpke., (Route 17), when it crashed into the roof of a vacant house on the property and slid onto the roadway, blocking the sidewalk and both southbound lanes and one northbound lane of Route 17, police said. It did not hit any vehicles or pedestrians, police added.
Branch had been hired by the home's owner to remove a backyard tree that had been leaning for years, but Branch didn't secure the limb and misjudged the direction it would fall, police said. His actions "created substantial risk of serious physical injury to others," police said.
The homeowner was not charged.
Branch is set to appear in Sloatsburg Village Court on Dec. 19. Further information on his court appearance or legal representation was unavailable Monday, and efforts to reach him were unsuccessful.
