re: Can travel agents get better flight prices? - bigblake
Coming from a travel agent (or at least manager), it's usually not cheaper. That being said, for complex routes it's usually easier to use a travel agent because the difference might be 1-2%. In general, travel agents only make 1% or less on airfare, 10-15% on cruises, and 20-25% on hotels. ...

re: "Vampire CEO's continue to suck blood" - bigblake

re: "Vampire CEO's continue to suck blood" - bigblake
[quote]Most educated people who have done the analysis think the truly highly compensated CEOs are rarely if ever worth their pay. [/quote] I'm going to leave it up to the educated AND talented people who manage billions of dollars to determine if paying someone $10 million a year is worth it. T...

re: Another angle of the Everest avalanche - bigblake
Seems like going into the tent would be the dumb thing to do. You die of suffocation, being in a (collapsed) tent would be harder to get out and/or be rescued....

re: Pentagon credit cards used for gambling, escorts - bigblake
I always wondered why we had to use govt CC too. I speculate that it has to do with people might not having the ability to get CC's, and therefore a blanket policy was to issue everyone a govt CC....

re: Pentagon credit cards used for gambling, escorts - bigblake
FWIW they will have to pay. If you travel for your govt job you get a govt credit card, but the bill actually comes to you. It's not like the Dept of Defense will pay those charges....

re: Thinking about joining the military soon and... - bigblake
Benefits pretty much all the same. Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, Army. In that order. It is what it is, not like you can change it. 51 is whatevs. Positive. GI Bill is worth a lot of money. Try to get a job that will aid you in the career that you want when you get out (if you get out)...

re: Anyone have experience with In Wall HDMI/IR extenders? - bigblake
The Logitech Smart Remote might work. It's running on RF, which might span that. You can control using an app on your phone or the included remote.

re: Teacher at Chalmette h.s. proposes to another teacher in an awesome way - bigblake

re: Preliminary findings show Freddie Gray suffered head injury in police transport - bigblake
The police dept is going to lose a civil case since they didn't restrain him, but I can't see how they'll get any manslaughter or murder conviction. I believe the police officers gave him a rough ride on purpose....

re: Baltimore Police say police van made a previously unknown stop - bigblake
I was driving for 30 minutes today and tried to think of a way where this dude would break his spine. I don't think police officers are dumb enough to go back there and break it on purpose. My hypothesis, which is based on the little that I know, is that he was in the back of the van making no...
