| LSU Recruiting|| Can Scott be everything that we dreamed about Shepard? - TheHiddenFlask on 1/31/16 at 12:52 pm|
Film isn't all that different. Incredible athlete that is allusive and can extend plays until coverage breaks down. I did see a little better zip on some of his short passes than Shepard had, so hopefully he can be the man. I also think that the situation that he is walking into (virtually zero ...

Haven't followed this one in a long while and it has been crushed. I don't know how much I like the long term relevance of the business model, but as of right now, they are the only way to get Blu Ray quality output, so they have a defensible position for a while. Redbox is also still popular with t...View Topic - Replies (1)
| Money Talk|| High earnings growth careers and saving - TheHiddenFlask on 12/1/15 at 12:26 pm|
All of the saving threads here have me wondering about what advice you would give to someone who expects to double their income every 8-10 years for the rest of their career. Does this change the outlook on saving earlier? Obviously, going Roth early on is much more advantageous in this scena...View Topic - Replies (15)

What would you get for a girl that is not your girlfriend, but you have been passively dating for the past few months? It was made clear to me that I should remember her birthday, so I want to send over something. Are flowers too much? Jewelry is my usual go to, but I feel like that's way too much. ...

People don't even care about his policies any more, they just want someone to counteract the absurd stranglehold that has been put on anyone that is successful and/or not some fringe minority group. They want someone who will tell someone they are being stupid when the person is being stupid. Cu...View Topic - Replies (19)

So, yesterday I was trying to explain what a micro aggression was and I eventually had to just give several examples where something that seems just fine on the surface can be turned into racist/sexist/____phobic if given several mental leaps.

I am yet to find anyone who actually thinks income equality is a good idea. What they want is either: A) Free money from the government to improve their lifestyle. (The poor) B) The inability for anyone to ever catch up with them (the very wealthy) I've always presented this hypothetical to gr...View Topic - Replies (11)

In the thread about minimum salary for overtime, I got a good dose of introspectivity. Unlike most of the people that responded, I think that having that minimum is important so you can't just work blue collar labor to the bone for no extra pay. If you get paid $30,000 a year, you are not long t...View Topic - Replies (8)

In the Red Cross thread, Susan G Komen got dumped on very hard. I would like to address a few points about a good organization that has been tarnished by a very effective smear campaign.
