    Yeah Yamagata City was such a bust, I convinced my friend to drive there with me to try on the pants and see if we could get any pears or cherries (which yamagata is famous for). Legal limit here is 0.00%, so I couldn't even have a beer, he got drunk and met some trashy girls, and I went home by myself. Hope he has fun finding his way back tomorrow

    Regardless of how much it costs, the buyer should be used to shipping costs anyways. Complaining about higher prices because of shipping inclusion when you live in a country that's far from everything is dumb.

    Explain how a country could be far from EVERYTHING. I'm curious...

    It's just a couple days a week so not too bad, but will be teaching a Hyundai ceo starting in a couple days. Hoping it lands me some branching jobs so I can start making decent money.

    I don't understand your education rant because we're obviously not disagreeing at all.

    I have a bit of a bum knee, it was late, and I was cranky. Plus, I like to rant anyway. Not much to understand. I'm going to be one of those old me who wave their canes yelling "Stupid Kids."

    I understand that that is very different from my highschool, which had close to 100% graduation rate, most students going off to university, the remainder going to community college. It was a high performance high school. Put it this way, I re-met a lot of alumni when I went to graduate school - which was a top 10 school. (Of course, our most famous/infamous alum was the guy who designed the Iraqi "supergun" and was assasinated by the Mossad, so, go figure.) This means that our high school experiences were probably significantly different. I really do think that old school methods had the best results. But I'm willing to conceded that really only works for particular demographic groups.

    Most people (and this changes when you have adult jobs) should use the envelope system (assuming that the withholding has been done correctly). Each paycheck, take out enough to pay your rent, utilities, and leave, I dunno, $100/week for food. Put 5-15% directly into savings, not to be touched except for emergencies. Something awesome that might get sold out - not an emergency. Death in the family is an emergency. The rest can go to entertainment, clothing, etc... Do not use your credit cards unless you can pay it off in full at the end of the month. If you can't force yourself to do this, use your debit card. That way, you feel the pain immediately.

    Of course, there are people who are great with money. One of my brother-in-laws friends (and his employer) bought his first company when he was 19. He has been acquiring companies, realizing their potential, and then selling, ever since. I think that he owns a dozen companies, each with annual revenues about $5MM, at any time, with the goal of doubling or tripling their value. And he is good at choosing both good companies and good people. But that guy is obviously the exception.

    The knucklehead to non-knucklehead ratio is depressingly low. I have a colleague, who was a high flyer postdoc at Harvard, and who is now faculty at a top 25 school, who remarked at a reunion a couple of years ago, that what we do is not particularly hard. It's just that there are so many people who are incompetent at everything.

    BTW, I also know some of politicians, and they are, by-and-large, not incompetent in managing money. They do have a ridiculous amount of political pressure, and they try to juggle a lot of knives at the same time, which usually gets them cut.

    Random fashion thought to get this back on track: seriously considering getting myself either a Fullcount jacket, or a nonnative jacket. Problem is that neither is returnable, and the Fullcount jacket may be a bit small, and the nonnative jacket may be a bit big. ARghhhhhhh... Decisions.
