  1. With population decline, isn’t the real issue a decrease in demand? Increasing productivity doesn’t matter if demand is also decreasing.
  2. How many do you sell per year?

    A buddy ordered a copy of the Rhino rerelease of Pantera’s Vulgar Display of Power. Instead of sending one record, they sent one case. Free Pantera for me.
  4. I do. We can only do 10% of our base salary. Ours is every 6 months and you get the lower price of first or last day of the period plus a 15% discount. It’s easy money. It’s crazy not to do it. Even if you just consider it a savings account and cashed it in the same day, after taxes you’re still clearing over 7% profit no matter the stock price. No savings account would return that rate. I’ve had returns of 80% some years. I think there’s only been 2 periods where it was just the 15% discount.
  5. It sounded like it’s a Teacher Retirement System rule for anyone receiving their pension and not an AISD rule. Regardless it is shortsighted and I fully expect the legislature to ban retired teachers from subbing at all just to fuck AISD.
  6. This was decent. It helped that this was a book and M. Knight didn’t deviate from the story at all. He did have to add some flashbacks to get the running time to 90 minutes but they’re brief and don’t detract from the story. Overall: B-
  7. My kid's elementary school teacher gave her notice and today is her last day. The principal just sent an email that they've had zero applicants and they've reached out to the 30+ substitutes on their list and no one has responded. A teacher who retired last year will sub this next week but retirees are banned from subbing more than a few days in a row. It's at the one of the top 3 elementary schools in the district and they still can't get anyone for the job. This is gonna be a shitshow.
  8. We started the account when she was 3 and invest monthly. This was the first withdrawal in 13 years. I don't remember the exact gains but it was probably $10,000 in long term gains. She's 16 so she's never filed a tax return. Sounds like a good time to start since she would owe zero taxes on the gains while I would owe the full amount if I claimed it. and since you asked for pics:
  9. It’s the first step to removing all gun control. The founders believed in zero restrictions so all gun laws are invalid.
  10. On both an Apple Watch and iPhone you can set one of your cards to be a "transit" card so that you don't even need to open Apple Pay for it to work.

    I don’t get the negative reviews. You can skip easily since it shows up as another subscription on your account and you get an email about a week before shipping so you know what it’s going to be. You will occasionally pay more than the list price because of the flat fee but I’ve only had 2 of 7 that listed for less than the subscription.

    Looks like it’s a 180g special edition from the oic in the email.
  13. I looked at Disneyland careers once and was shocked at the number of engineers they hired across many disciplines. It makes sense though. They’re a self contained city that balloons to 100K people daily. They need civil engineers, mechanical, wastewater, etc.
