re: Granting dying wishes vs going against a parents wishes. - Wasp
I really don’t get what y’all don’t understand about this. There are two perspectives: grandma and the parents. Is grandma being unreasonable and is the reason for not baptizing correct? 1: grandma. She’s not unreasonable and right or wrong she likely believes the below to be true and believes sh...

re: New England summer trip? - Wasp
Like Tigercross said, Omni Mt Washington is a beautiful place. Spent a few days there a couple summers ago for my grad school graduation. Absolutely amazing place. Also, coastal Maine is great. Cape cod/Nantucket/Martha’s vineyard are all nice as well. There are a ton of options for summer trips in ...

re: After buying teacher support before last election, JBE capitulates to teacher raises - Wasp
So I too think it sounds measly and ridiculous. But what else is crazy is that $500 will cost the state $40m. The $1000 he promised would have cost $80m. That a ton of money. Maybe not in the grand scheme of things but good lord. Also, local districts should better prioritize how they spend th...

re: Abdul-Rauf would be the best player in college basketball today, at nearly 50 - Wasp
I can’t say he would be the best but I’d like to point out a couple key points that, I believe, theorize he wouldn’t be far from it: Still incredibly athletic. Obviously he wouldn’t be the most athletic but why does he have to be in college basketball. Think to some of the most recent best player...

re: Do democrats think billionaires have money buried in their yards? - Wasp
[quote]You don't have to be a billionaire or even a millionaire, to take advantage of the lower long, and short term capital gains tax rates. Average people like myself invest in stocks, real estate, and hold it long term, when we sell we pay the same rates as Bezos, seems like pretty fair deal to m...

re: Do democrats think billionaires have money buried in their yards? - Wasp
[quote]His salary is less than a $100K because the board and other shareholders have deemed it in their best interest that Bezos is compensated almost purely through equity. If you have a problem with it, you should buy some Amazon shares and lobby their board to change his compensation structure to...

re: Do democrats think billionaires have money buried in their yards? - Wasp
[quote]To your Bezos example, if Amazon's share price were to tank tomorrow because it came out that they were using child labor all over America, then the shareholders stand to lose everything. Not so much for the product manager living in Seattle who makes $150,000 per year. [/quote] Not sure w...

re: Do democrats think billionaires have money buried in their yards? - Wasp
The problem is that this is now how most billionaires pay taxes at all. I don’t support a wealth tax though. Jeff Bezos and other owners of companies take a salary. Bezos’ is <$100k. He pays Regular taxes like you or I would pay on that. That salary obviously doesn’t buy him $160m house etc...

re: Basketball atmosphere - Wasp
I see this posted a lot. “Move the student section!” How do you move the student section? Serious question. When they were on the sideline and moved to the baseline, did they offer the effected season ticket holders the sideline seats? What do you do with the sideline seats that we would be takin...

re: Who is in charge of showing replays at the PMAC? - Wasp
Did anyone notice the hashtag screen? When they show twitter posts of people using #lsu at the game. Late in second half and only 6 pictures were posted so after shuffling the 6 pictures three at a time for a minute they just shut it off. ...

Atmosphere in Arena - Wasp
Tonight I think I saw 3-4 video replays?? Especially on bad calls this could help improve the booing and get people more into it. I didn’t see any prompts on the video board to make specific cheers. Also, very little music. The band sounded great but I didn’t hear callin Baton Rouge or I’m f...

re: Making sushi - Wasp
If you want to go with an experience of making something, you could also try a tuna tower. Google tuna tower Kona grill. You could always add other ingredients as well. MIL always requests I do these for her birthday. Just use an old Guidry’s Container or something similar to get the shape. Put a sp...
