Don't know which thread this best belongs in... Just saw on Facebook that someone I know named their kid "Aryan." I wonder if they Googled that first.
There was an article in The Atlantic about thathttp://www.theatlantic.com/entertainment/archive/2014/07/lebron-james-salary-caps-and-the-european-free-market/374527/Turns out capitalism is bad for competition. I don't think Americans are really all that interested in a system where the best teams get better every year. We like to pretend that's not how it works in real life and we sure don't want to see it in sport. The downside of our system is that it creates...
Relegation would require some kind of massive change in the whole structure of the league (all the pro leagues in America). We just totally lack all the secondary caliber leagues that European soccer has, so there aren't any teams to bring up. The minors/D-league are just feeders for the pros, not independent and competitive leagues of their own.
I must have gotten a bad batch. Had some Sweet Tangos earlier this year and they were MEH.Asian pears are awesome but I can't get over paying two bucks apiece for them. All these expensive fancy apples are probably two bucks apiece but they sell 'em by the pound so it doesn't bother me. Psychology!Dunno, Honey Crisps seem to have the same texture as other apples to me. Maybe you got a bad one.
Honey Crisp Apples are awesome. Clearly the superior apple.
Make sure to wash real good in the morning, you don't want any dipstick incidents.
I'm slowly working my way through closing on a house. Bullshit with the inspection (HVAC wasn't permitted so gotta wait on that), and just a constant stream of documents to the lender. They keep wanting updated bank account statements. I just send them the online export statement...which is a csv file. It's a text file. It's utterly trivial to edit. They're not confirming dick by making me do this, but I've had to send like four rounds of them. This is apparently...
My wife got "Light" bread from the store. What makes it "Light"? They made each piece smaller, and thinner! Hurray for puny little sandwiches. Also, the nutrition states are for three slices. Why would you bin it up into three slices? Nobody eats three slices.
It makes sense when you already have a product and just need some capital to produce it, or want to gauge the market before you build inventory. But these "Pay for all my development costs and if it ends up working, uh, I guess I'll give you one" deals are crazy. Half of the more ambitious sounding ones are overt scams but you'd need to know something about the technology to be able to tell. I've seen some trying to build medical devices. What kind of moron thinks that...
People really ought to ask themselves why a product needs to go to Kickstarter instead of conventional investor sources. The customer is exposed to all the risk and the usual upside is "getting the product." You're just paying to buy into a dream, and surprise surprise, those often don't pan out.
