re: Tell me if my thoughts on roulette are incorrect - monteandmakers
[quote]Each spin you have a 1:38 chance to hit. With each spin that does not hit the number you choose, the “probability” that the number you selected hits will go up. This is what probability is.[/quote] That would be true if they covered up numbers so the ball couldn’t fall in those pockets. ...

re: Would you rather live in New Orleans or Memphis? - monteandmakers
I’ve lived in both and prefer NOLA by a large margin. NOLA has its issues, but Memphis did nothing for me. There wasn’t much to do or see, food was meh (you better love BBQ), not many nice parts of town in Memphis proper, Blues music is meh. Beale is nicer than Bourbon but it’s only a few blocks ...

re: What value does a graduate degree represent to you - monteandmakers
My undergrad degree did not have anything to do with business or finance so an MBA really helped open doors. After graduating I got in with a F500 finance department, four years later I’m making $50k more than my pre-MBA job. Now, there’s a lot of hard work and long hours in there, but I don’t th...

re: Resignation is Official - New Agreement is Executed, but wait... - Update in OP and Page 5 - monteandmakers
Take the F500 job and be done. If they truly cannot operate without you then offer to do contract work on the side at a rate that is commensurate with your value to the company. ...

re: Does anyone at your work put (Name,MBA) in email signature line? - monteandmakers
I have an MBA and would never do it. When I see others do it I always think they are desperate for some sort of recognition or validation. Another one that is funny is nurses with a bachelors degree; they always have RN, BSN in their signatures. Uh, congrats on the degree??...

re: Children of couples who divorce still suffer the effects decades later - monteandmakers
My parents are divorced and I’m doing just fine; no drugs, graduate degree, steady job, yada yada yada. Although, they got divorced when I was young and I never remember them being together. Is the issue divorced parents or seeing your parents going through divorce?...

re: Have any of you ever found out how much $ a co-worker makes? - monteandmakers
I work in a position where I have access to salaries of the group I support, not my direct co-workers. Can be depressing to see what some people make (well over $100k) when their output is complete crap and they come up with every excuse in the book. They must be good at something I’m not seeing....

re: Do you feel any inclination to actively reach out and help those less fortunate than you? - monteandmakers
I like to help out but am also very skeptical of large “charity” organizations. I much prefer to give when I know it is going directly to those in need. At work we all throw in for presents that go directly to a family and are delivered by someone in our office. Also donated to a high school frie...

re: Selling my house. Why do I have to pay the buyer's agent? - monteandmakers
It is customary but also negotiable. If you have a house in a desirable neighborhood that is an easy sell you may be able to get your agent to agree to a lower commission. If they know it will be less work and expense for them they will work with you. You could also get a young agent who is hungry...

re: How much work at work do you actually do? - monteandmakers
I work at a large company and I'm busy most of the day Mon-Thur; even work a few hours at night sometimes to keep up. We get every other Friday off so when we're in on Fridays it's pretty slow and I can slack a bit. To those who work a few hours a day, what the hell is your job and how much do ...

re: Abita Old Fashioned Pale Ale - monteandmakers
I've had it and enjoyed it. It did taste similar to an old fashioned but I didn't get any of the hop I would expect from a pale ale. It was a little on the sweeter side but not too bad. Found it at Whole Foods and I'd drink it again. ...
