Not exactly. I know I am splitting hairs, but you don't call time in baseball. You ask for it from the ump and he calls for a dead ball. Otherwise, the ball is live and the play goes on. Watch when a batter asks for time at the plate. The request is not always granted....

A dead ball. Play can only be stopped by the umpire. He doesn't call time, he stops play. ...

You can call time all you want. Only the umpire can grant the stoppage of play. You can't call TIME and make every one stop like basketball or football....

There is no timeout in baseball. Once the ball is thrown out of play the play stops but the runners can advance to the next base. ...

| Money Talk|| Is Dealer Cost different than Invoice Price for New Cars? - NBR_Exile on 1/29/14 at 2:26 pm|
Looking at Will Cover rules for new car buying, it mentions "dealer cost". I looked at the normal car buying sites but have come up blank on the dealer cost.
Any ideas where this information can be found?...

I don't think the AT&T Mobile Share plan is that cheap. 10gigs in $100/month plus $25 per phone if it is not under contract and $40 per phone if it is. That's $200/month for 4 no contract phones. Did I miss something?

| Money Talk|| re: Capital Gains Tax Free - NBR_Exile on 12/24/13 at 10:33 am|
You're right. Anything over 72.5k is taxed at 30% until you back fill the tax on the gains up to that level. At least that's the way I read it. ...
| Money Talk|| Capital Gains Tax Free - NBR_Exile on 12/24/13 at 9:41 am|
I recently discovered that capital gains for 2013 can be tax free. If your adjusted taxable income is in the 15% tax bracket, you will pay no tax on gains up to the 15% percent limit of 72,500.

We pay 5-5.50 for a meal. Snacks are extra. We go to a small private school so we expect to pay more. No government assistance. There are separate pools for meals and snacks. We can limit the amount of snacks by not funding that pool. Once one of the pools reaches a set amount it levels up automatic...
