Totally misleading statistic. That is based on median price rather than price per square foot. Your San Fran luxury apartment is a Manhattan closet.

Remember it like it was yesterday.

 

Is a smashed-in face an acceptable individual modification of WSCBD? Or is it out of the IM category because it's insufficiently C? Does this depend on the story one tells about the smashed-in face? If the story quality and believability of delivery are high enough, does a bonus increase occur? And vice versa, with a poor story/bad storytelling resulting in bonus decrease? Or is a smashed-in face simply too affected? What if one distracts from one's face with non-visible monogram of one's children's names and an invisible pocket circle?

 

Or am I trying too hard to find a unifying theory of IMWSCBD? at A to the G to Jiffy, how would you smash in your face to individually modify your WSCDB so that it is a personal expression of your inmost self (in an Emersonian sense).

I cant speak for my father, but I did not get a bonus.

I did cry, and would assume that if any other partners of the firm were outside, they would have voted for no bonus for a weak and clumsy child.

Since "Anna Karenina" has appeared in this thread and since this thread is wandering all up and down the whole creation, there are signs posted at Union Station in Los Angeles on the off chance that someone wants to impersonate Anna Karenina there (although if they only speak Russian they won't be able to read these signs).

Objection: his handle is P-K-L, his monogram reads P.K.L.

  Sorry, I don't really want to argue with people on this side of the board.

Anyways, my analogy between French food and French tailoring is correct. Everyone speaks highly of it, few really understands what it's all about - I include myself here!

Um, who doesn't understand French food?  It's great sauces, and meat with lots of fat,  And other things cooked with lots of fat.  And salt.

 

Oh right, and bread.

 

What is there to not understand?

And how about bones full of fat that you are supposed to suck out?

Once, in Paris, my (then, future) wife and I were eating at La Tour D'Argent. She is notoriously cheap, and I am usually the decadent one.

We get the menu's and start ordering. She gets a foie gras appetizer that was 125 euros. A duck main course for 175. a 65 euro chocolate something or other dessert. It was a special occasion so I mean, whatever. But still, she's not the type to throw out her stinginess for a good time.

After the meal was over (850 EU later), I ask her just out of curiosity, why she chose to break the bank when it was so out of character.

Turns out, they give (gave) menus without prices to the ladies, and menus with prices to the guys.

But we got certificates with our duck, so theres that.

I am going to rule in favor of @P-K-L on humanitarian grounds - which is to say - his situation mirrors mine, so I a biased in favor of him.  My initials, if properly done are "F.-Y.T.L"  This has caused endless confusion, so I've just learned to use "F.Y.L." 

 

Ruling on the field stands.  @P-K-L will receive a courtesy monogramming from me.

How do you know he didn't legally change his name to match his SF handle?
