re: Why do people get the black lung at the Symphony? - aileron
Was just thinking about this the other day as I was listening to music. In between the movements, it sounded like someone set off tear gas or something. There must have been 100 people in the audience coughing. It's like they were holding it in all during the Rondo and could barely wait for the mo...

re: Puerto Rico - aileron
I'm heading there in a couple of weeks to visit in-laws. They are requiring a negative covid test from within 72 hours or get one at the airport. If you don't do it you should "self-quarantine" for the duration of your visit. It doesn't sound like there is any enforcement whatsover. Typical PR is ve...

re: Status of Puerto Rico - aileron
My in-laws on the island said that they are going to start requiring arriving visitors to provide proof of a negative COVID test from within 72 hours. They already do have on-site testing at the airport. It supposedly takes 30 mins for results....

re: Ranking the state flags - aileron
I always thought the Ohio flag was interesting...being the only non-rectangular one. It looks like some kind of a maritime pennant. Ironic since nothing about Ohio reminds me of the sea. ...

re: Anyone restored a car from basically nothing? - aileron
[quote]and I'm not looking to spend $20k in parts/etc.[/quote] I'm restoring a '66 coupe. You will spend more than 20K on that heap. The parts are all reproduced and readily available. That one looks in pretty bad shape. If the rocker panels and A-frame are too rusted, it might not be worth the...

re: Where do you have your 529 set up? - aileron
I used the New Hampshire plan with Fidelity since all of my other accounts are already with Fidelity. It's very easy to move things around. The Texas plan seemed clunky to manage and since we don't have a state income tax there was no benefit to use it. ...
