re: Tell Me About the Worst Presentation You've Ever Given - bigblake
The best prep is knowing the slides and information. The worst presentations I have given or seen was when the slides were not prepared by the presenter. I went through a presentation bootcamp in the military where I was giving 100 slide presentations and was purposefully destroyed on each and...

re: First time cruise advice. - bigblake
I liked the sit-down dinners. Our room was near the dining hall and we had the "anytime" seating. Was really convenient. I ordered a minimum of 2 appetizers and 2 entrees per meal, and some meals ordered 3 of each. For ours they said you could only bring 2 bottles of wine per stateroom, but...

[quote]You all do realize that George Orwell (Eric Blair) was a committed socialist and Marxist. He hated the Soviet Union because he felt it hurt the cause for worldwide socialism. I find it ironic that conservatives see George Orwell as a hero and tell conservatives to read his books. It's fin...

[quote]I attempted to read it but found it to be so poorly written that I gave up on it. It was incredibly boring and verbose. [/quote] I thought it was well written (obviously differing points of views), though it was verbose. The books I listed aren't my favorite books, but the ones that ...

[quote]Of all the people who recommend Atlas Shrugged, I always wonder who has actually read the book. [/quote] I read it (and Fountainhead), but admittedly I skipped a few pages during Ayn Rand's/John Galt's ~40 page speech....

re: Mass shooting at the Grand Theatre, Lafayette. Confirmed by KATC - bigblake
His linkedin profile is atrocious. His opening statement is about making $10,000 in revenue over 3 months. He was twice the owner of a bar, for ~2 years each time. Babbled about buying a house. Says he went to board meetings and city council meetings, then claims it saved "millions and ...

[quote]Amazon actually runs higher margins than Walmart. Of course, that includes the high margin virtual goods such as ebooks and web services, but the margins on their physical goods leaves plenty of room for undercutting. Amazon breaks even due to high capex. [/quote] Capex for their warehous...

re: Jet launches today, a startup who raised $225 million to take on Amazon - bigblake
Amazon already loses money, yet has tons of volume. Amazon already has a subscription service... I'm not sure how this company is going to undercut a company that is already charging basement prices. My thought is that the early investors are banking that later investors are going to be the so...
