This reminded me of an old article by an MBA calling himself Financial Samurai arguing for rental taxes because renters don’t pay property tax. When pressed on that in the comment section, guy claimed that the landlord doesn’t have to pay property tax with your rent, they could go on vacation instead. A fucking MBA. Read more

Well she was definitely complicit. But my guess is that she told her parents that she didn’t want to go to college (in that most annoying, whiny, unconvincing teenage way) and they didn’t listen. So she went along with the plan figuring it would get her parents off her case and she could do what she wanted with her Read more

This may just be me, but I tend to find the moment when I get home after a vacation to be one of the sweetest pleasures in life. There’s just nothing that can beat just loading up my PS4, and my own bed after not having slept on it for x amount of days. That being said, I do take some steps to ensure this particular Read more

Great now I want to design something (or, ask an engineer friend to design something, lbr) that can be 3d printed to turn this into a flip-top lid. I can’t find one on Thingiverse. Ball jar bongs? Yes. Salt cellars? No.

I haven’t had a dishwasher with a dry feature worth a darn. I just open it before bedtime and it air dries nicely by the morning.

Also, notify your HR person that employers have a fiduciary duty to choose a reasonable 401(k) plan, and that many employers have been sued for not offering plans that have low-fee options. Phrase it as saying you’re looking out for the best interests of your employer.

Ah, that’s where you go straight to the ultimate, higher purpose. Brushing teeth is supposed to get rid of dragon breath so I don’t pass out every time I talk to you, you still have dragon breath, therefore, you need to do it until you get it right. Read more

Also, absolute worst case – it’s not going to kill you if you end up having to hand wash a few crucial items (underwear, a few shirts, etc.) in a sink for once in your life and let it air dry overnight or while you’re out sightseeing. Better than packing and lugging around a whole bunch of clothes you may very well Read more

When I visit my parent (NY to SC) it’s on a smaller plane, so I bring a gym bag that fits in the overhead. Using a lifehack from here, I roll up my shirts and underwear which I only bring 4 of since I can do laundry at the house.

Coming from a cold climate, I periodically travel to much warmer climates. Unless it’s below zero (F), a light jacket (and maybe a hat) is just fine and easily stowed during the trip. No point in hauling a giant winter coat and gloves for the 20 minutes that I might be outside. I also have some North Face convertible Read more
