I liked how he kept talking about how awesome the death penalty is to remind any stray liberals that they were no longer on home turf.

I work at a vet clinic and we’ve been getting soooo many “I found a bunny nest what do I do?” phone calls. Leave it alone. You leave it alone. And do not pick them up and bring them to us!

You can buy AMC shows on the Google Play store. I don’t have cable, so that’s what I do.

Aaaaaah I work Sunday nights! And Monday nights! But it’s ok, the io9 speculating crowd predicted this anyway.

Ok, everything is in Mountain View, CA apparently. I live in fucking North Dakota. I don’t even see anything for Minnesota. Bloody hell. I hate you Ticketmaster.

I’m just not a fan of strict ratios of that nature in general because like I said, they don’t reflect reality for a lot of people. But if I had private loans, I wouldn’t have a choice. I know people in that boat. There’s poor life choices involved, but it still sucks. Actually I suppose there’s a choice to default and Read more

Private student loans are evil and I mercifully don’t have any. I know about IBR, etc, but I make enough that 50% after tax is a comfy lower middle class living and I want it all paid off in 10 years. I just got a higher paying job and I’m planning to dump the excess into paying it off even sooner. I’m really glad to Read more

I know, but I want them paid off in 10 years. I’m glad to have that option in my back pocket if the going gets tough though.

Yeeeesh. When I had rent control it was limited to 1% raises. 4% seems barely-controlled!

I agree with you in general but some of us are saddled with student loan debt. There’s a range of opinion on the subject of whether and how much of this to take on, but the reality is if you want a decent paying job that calls for a degree, you’ll end up with some. Unfortunately a lot of people don’t look hard enough Read more

I just moved away from Oakland and our apartment went on the market at $insanity per month. Oakland now is what SF was a few years ago. You’re lucky you caught the housing market like you did. I’ll admit I’m rather jealous.

You certainly need a cash cushion, but over a certain amount that makes sense to you (a few thousand dollars I’d say), it makes little sense to keep a lot of money in savings. I’m presuming that’s what he means.

I dunno, I have this terror of moving to a subdivision and listening to barking dogs and screaming kids all day. Actually I recently moved somewhere with a lot of these noises and I’d take my former loud sports watching neighbors back to get rid of them. To each their own I suppose.

50-30-20, eh? I love these “rules” that only loosely correlate with people’s realities. Fully 50% of my after tax income goes to service my student loan debt. I’m sure there’s many people who’d love to have 30% of their income available for discretionary expenses; I remember a time in my life when $20 a month for Read more

Good and/or lucky investing can take people from well-off to truly wealthy. But he’s probably involved in various unsavory activities to generate the cash to stash offshore.

I haven’t lived in Russia in 25 years, but in the Soviet era at least, professional symphony musicians were very highly respected. I don’t know if and how much that translated into earnings, but they were very important culturally. So it actually doesn’t surprise me for a cellist in Russia to be wealthy, although it Read more
