Yeah, the Koreans I know are more blasé about croaking than American whiteys who secretly think they're immortal or some such shit

Dat backdoor (roth) though!

Single person income limits start phasing out even lower, but as long as you don't have any other IRAs, you can just drop 5.5k in a traditional IRA and immediately convert to a Roth. Because you already paid taxes on it (if you are above the Roth threshold, you are also above the pre-tax Traditional threshold) and it hasn't gained any value, you don't have to pay any additional taxes during the conversion.

I just have a bank account that gets auto-deposits throughout the year to equal 5.5k...and then in january, I make a full contribution and do the conversion.

Isn't died also too direct in English?

Yep, 돌아가셨어.

That's what I was trying to convey: that saying someone you know "died" in English just feels too direct, impersonal, and cold.

Yeah, got to get in on that backdoor Roth early as it's not good if you already have a sizable trad IRA.

No matter the initial topic, you guys can't help but talk about each other's backdoors, can you?

Thankfully (or not depending on how you look at it), I can still contribute straight to a roth.

Though this will probably be my last year.

Nope. As we've pointed out this happens at an AGI for a married couple of well under 200k. I think 1% starts at over 300k.

The biggest bullshit tax rule is the student loan interest deduction. Your deduction for a married couple is the same aswitch single, and if I'm not mistaken phases out roughly at the same income.

What tradition?  Dutch Calvinist or something a little less mainstream?

^^ Sino-Dutch Calvinist Practitionry League.

So today I ate lunch at a Japanese restaurant. If you try to guess the songs that played in the background you probably won't get it right they played "Nutshell" by Alice in Chains. That I did not expect, no two ways about it.

Chinese restaurants always have the most random music. It could range from the best hits of the 80s to traditional chinese music to todays pop music.

I han just read an interview with David Letterman where he says

 

'And because of this introspection, you believe that what you are doing is of great importance and that it is affecting mankind wall-to-wall.'

'And then when you get out of it you realize, oh, well, that wasn’t true at all,' he continued, laughing.

'It was just silliness. And when that occurred to me, I felt so much better and I realized, geez, I don’t think I care that much about television anymore.'

 

Doesn't he realize that he made a lot of people smile at the end of the day for a lot of years and thinking about him still makes people smile? Isn't that worth something?
