[quote]What the hell is a police sympathizer? [/quote] A regular citizen who was appalled upon hearing reports that a cop shot an unarmed black teenager in the back, but then waited for all the facts to come out. When all the facts came out, it was found that the "unarmed black teenager", was, i...

re: unbelievable restored video/audio of Allied troops on November 11, 1918 (the end of WWI) - Ace Midnight
[quote]I read somewhere that they were using restored audio and I guess I took that to mean it was all restored audio.[/quote] Just from a technical standpoint, there is very little sound film from the second world war, much less the first. There was no audio "recorded" so nothing to "restore" -...

re: Hugo Chavez and Nelson Mandela - international heroes of the 20th century - Ace Midnight
[quote]Do either of them get blame for the unrest they primed their people for? [/quote] The problem is the left canonizes those folks, particularly Mandela. No one on that side is going to weep when the genocide is complete in SA. When a country that not so long ago exported food is starving ...

re: Musical structure in Blondie's "Heart of Glass: - Ace Midnight
[quote]The thing that always bothered me about "Heart Of Glass" is the drum fills in the outro. Seems like Clem Burke was trying to show off a little but it comes off kind of hacky and the opposite of tasteful restraint. [/quote] Meh, I like that a lot. In fact, the entire band is fantastic. ...

[quote]A rule of thumb is the absolute minimum to secure a 30 year retirement is 35x inflation adjusted retirement costs.[/quote] This is utterly ludicrous. 20x would easily sustain a person at their salary indefinitely. Certainly 35 to 40 years with a draw down. 15x would probably get a per...

re: rule of thumb for retirement savings - Ace Midnight
[quote]I'm 40 with a good job and not much debt, whats a good general rule for savings for retirement?[/quote] I would say 15% of your current, gross income per paycheck. Lots of folks just can't spare that, but if you get into the habit early, it can be sustained. As far as milestones, you s...
