  4. This is the first time since before Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973 that an adult woman has asked a court to intervene to allow her to terminate a pregnancy, and the first lawsuit of its kind since Texas banned almost all abortions in 2022. Kate Cox, a 31-year-old Dallas woman, learned last week that her fetus was diagnosed with full trisomy 18, a chromosomal anomaly that is almost always fatal before or soon after birth. The fetus is developing with an umbilical hernia, a twisted spine, a club foot and an irregular skull and heart, according to the lawsuit. https://www.texastribune.org/2023/12/05/texas-abortion-lawsuit/
  5. means testing is the camel's nose to killing the program. also, it'll create gobs of paperwork eating up much or all of the savings, depending on exactly how it's structured. we have a hard time valuing wealth aside from publicly traded paper and cash sitting in the bank. the SS tax rate increased again and again and again until the greenspan commission set it (too) high back in the early 1980s. that created big social security surpluses (they should have reduced the rate afterward and continued to adjust as needed to keep the program on a long-run break even). those surpluses were useful for suppressing the debt held by the public figure at a time st. reagan was pushing for big deficits. and now the rate hasn't budged in 40 years, which leaves people believing it is static.
  6. when y'all say thin crust you mean the cracker type? technically NY is 'thin' but it's not cracker thin. i can still put away a large dominos cracker crust. pep and jalapeno. the last few slices i'd be wondering if i should have stopped at the halfway point and saved the rest for the next day.
  7. Congrats everyone, we did it! Sharp decline in the rate of overweight men:
  8. beating whole eggs isn't the same as beating egg whites. whipping the cream will leave more lasting structure than beating the whites, iirc.
