re: Why this generation doesn't put up Christmas lights - foshizzle
If it is done well it can be really pretty and all, and of course if it isn't done well it just looks bad. But it's a lot of work to basically do this: [img]http://data.whicdn.com/images/3386594/original.jpg[/img] ... and then take it down a couple of weeks later....

The Japanese simply don't have the capability of doing that today. Their Navy is much smaller and they have no true aircraft carriers. Not to mention we'd know it the moment they set sail....

re: Roth 401k - early disbursement - foshizzle
[quote]Unless I'm way off, the penalty and tax only apply to the 5% return in the account. [/quote] The penalty and tax only apply to anything that is more than what was contributed. For example, suppose over the years you contributed $10000 and your company kicked in another $1000 on top of that...

re: Things you thought you could still do, but really can't because of your age. - foshizzle
All I can say is that although I'm very lucky to score myself I can still play. Most of the guys on my team played on Virginia Tech - ten years ago. And most of the women played with solid programs too. Three of my teammates have NCAA title rings. Not professional but everyone still practices and...

re: Things you thought you could still do, but really can't because of your age. - foshizzle
I'm 49 now. I play indoor soccer with former ACC players in their late 20's to early 30's every week, been doing this about fifteen years now. Mostly guys who played in the ACC and gave it up for upper division rec league. Unfortunately they aren't getting older like me. What I can't do any more ...

[quote]As has happened to us everywhere we've been in the past 15 years.[/quote] Um, no. The US had lots of trouble subduing an armed population in Iraq and Afghanistan, yes. That's to be expected when someone is shooting at you, planting bombs wherever possible, etc. But carrier ops went m...

re: I am trying to understand how the unemployment rate is calculated now.... - foshizzle
This is not about value judgments at all. Anyone who starts making them is missing the point of the statistic. [quote]I'm worth twice what my boss is paying me - how's that any different than someone working 20 who wants 40? So throw me in that number too.[/quote] No. Unemployment measures are...

[quote]A lot of assumptions to get to a number that is treated like a holy grail.[/quote] Policy makers understand it is an estimate, that error is involved and even estimate the size of that error. It's the general public that treats it as "holy grail", but of course the general public is mor...

Although nobody (including myself) responded to Bama's original question, I think it's useful to mention this link from BLS that describes in some detail what is currently being done to measure this: [link=(http://www.bls.gov/cps/cps_htgm.htm)]LINK[/link] Of note: [quote]Some people think t...
