Imagine a city where all the major economic planks of the statist or "progressive" platform have been enacted: A "living wage" ordinance, far above the federal minimum wage, for all public employees and private contractors. A school system that spends significantly more per pupil than the national average. A powerful school employee union that militantly defends the exceptional pay, benefits and job security it has won for its members. A powerful government employee union...
Grizzly Bear are pretentious and the Avett Brothers peaked two albums ago; you see, I liked them back when they were cool. Pixie Lott's Turn it Up was perhaps the best album released in 2009 but I don't know if I'd say that were I not conscious of her appearance.

A question more than a thought but today is the last of ten days off from the gym after what had been 3-4x/week lifting for about three months or so. I had been adding a pound per week to many of my lifts (or half a pound per workout-- I'm n00b enough that microweights are great and I never fail). So, if I was hypothetically doing 5x5 at 200lbs 10 days ago, do I go back to trying 5x5 at 200.5 lbs as if I never took a break, or should I deload a bit?

Excel 2007. I get a circular reference warning every 20 seconds. I know that I have a circular reference, because I put it there. But why is it "warning" me so frequently? And how do I stop it?

It's really irritating that one can find it via a search engine, but not by using the menus on the site. I'm trying to figure out whether this is just incompetence, or if J.Crew has a valid business reason.

Summer just slays me-- I don't know whether it's psychological, or physical, but some combination of bright light and heat just knocks me on my arse. In winter, I can go all day long on six hours of sleep per night as long as I don't have to hang out somewhere the thermostat is cranked up. I'd...
Quote: Originally Posted by kmdsimpson I get the feeling they're cranking down the inventory, too. I think I mentioned this before, but seems like the stores get one shipment of new items, and that's it. Same result - less stuff left over to discount. Between their chart, their conference call transcripts, and their published financials, it's pretty obvious that they are completely on top of things. Retail is easy if you don't grow too big...
