Although isn't that really just one big trigger warning for the next four years?

These were just insanely good: http://www.sfchronicle.com/recipes/article/Recipe-Nopa-s-Wood-Baked-Butter-Beans-With-6892094.php Although that recipe has you start from dry, and the restaurant was using fresh which probably led to them having such a great texture. And I believe the bartender said they were fresh shelled cannellini beans rather than butter/lima beans.

What's so bad about giving your life's work to a bank? Isn't that like...the sole reason for traditional banks to exist?

Sucked both because I broke my headphones and because it meant the headphone jack on my current flight was jammed so I couldn't even stuff the freebie headphones in there. This was on like a 10 hour flight connecting to an 8 hour flight...The freebie headphones are pretty bad on a loud plane...I need earbuds with rubber seals to block out the sound so I can hear without cranking up the...
If you don't have a home, how can you open up a home equity line of credit? That's just not the millenial way...
