re: What's your credit score? - lynxcat
Even paying everything on time, mine is about 760. I am young so I don't have the credit length needed for scoring in the 800s. Not a big deal as it takes care of itself over time....

re: When does Emerson Hyndman get a serious look at the USMNT? - lynxcat
[quote]Hell... there were games in the U-20 WC where he and Zelalem were getting muscled off the ball.[/quote] If that is happening then it means the player has to adjust his play so that he isn't being put in positions where physicality is the #1 variable influencing the outcome of the play. ...

re: When does Emerson Hyndman get a serious look at the USMNT? - lynxcat
[quote]I mean, death is strong, but it could cost you crucial points. Friendlies, yeah, run him out. Anything else, I'm quite hesitant. There needs to be almost nothing on the line, unless he's shown at the club level he can handle it. I'm not familiar enough with Fulham's play of late to know if th...

re: When does Emerson Hyndman get a serious look at the USMNT? - lynxcat
[quote]You missed the point. It's way too early in the cycle to expect anybody to be on the plane to Russia. In 2011, no one knew who the frick Julian Green or Deandre Yedlin were and if you would've said that Brad Davis and Chris Wondolowski would play in a World Cup, you would've been laughed...

re: When does Emerson Hyndman get a serious look at the USMNT? - lynxcat
Playing both Zalalem and Hyndman at the same time would be a mistake for the first team. However, pair one of them up with Bradley and I am confident the captain can provide support and guidance on field....

re: When does Emerson Hyndman get a serious look at the USMNT? - lynxcat
[quote]Yeah, but the best thing for the USMNT isn't necessarily to be in the business of making guys who aren't ready yet better. Hyndman is technically advanced and by all accounts did well in the Championship last year. But he looked tiny in the U20s this year. He may be a guy that doesn't peak...

re: When does Emerson Hyndman get a serious look at the USMNT? - lynxcat
[quote]Way too early to expect any player to make the 2018 roster, much less a 19-year old who is still in the development phase of his game.[/quote] 19 now means he is 22 in 2018. I sure hope he is at least on the 23 man roster in Russia. I don't believe the chatter around holding guys back f...

Why would someone care if they spend (explicitly) $0 in a day? Of all MTB topics, this feels like one of the most extreme I have seen in years of being on this site. :lol: ...

re: Deducting Part-time MBA expenses - lynxcat
The law is clear when schooling is required to enter a new profession (law, medical, CPA) but the grey area is around an MBA allowing you to excel in your current role. In essence, it would be acting as continuing education that the company has not reimbursed. That's my 50,000 ft. understanding as i...

Deducting Part-time MBA expenses - lynxcat
I've started researching this and it looks to be a bit of a grey area. I am looking at programs that are Top 20 and almost all are ~$100-120K. Deducting such a large amount of educations expenses would save a significant amount of money off the tax bill. If it saves ~$25K, then it nets the cost ...

re: How often do you go a day without spending any money? - lynxcat
Physically not spending a dime during a day isn't too tough, but it is near impossible to live a day without any expenditures at all. Water, HVAC, sewage, gas, cable, internet, trash, rent, etc. are sunk costs no matter your behavior....

re: I think I've been getting fleeced on my auto insurance policy - lynxcat
I pay around $1600/year for my 2015 Mercedes C300. I have no wrecks or tickets on my history, but a new car makes things expensive. I am with State Farm. I priced out a few competitors when I bought the car and SF was the best rates I got. 250 / 500 / 100 liability For UM, 30/60 bodily damag...

Gamification of Amazon Echo - lynxcat
I was at a startup weekend this past weekend and some guys from Dialexa were working on machine learning using Amazon Echo. It was pretty amazing to watch them have a conversation with the Alexa, borderline Turing test style. My basic understanding is that they went around a mall and recorded...
