Yeah, this is a YMMV situation. The public school we were assigned was far from average. It was one of the worst in our city (a 1/10 rating in Greatschools for those familiar). From what I understand, the better public schools receive additional funding from parents to the tune of ~$3k per student per year to pay for supplies and additional teachers which isnt far off from private schools in your town.

As for private schools here, I'm not aware of any that charge as little as $6k. While there may be some prestige bias or premium, and we didn't look at every school under the sun, based on what we did see all of the private schools in our broader area (excluding some parochial schools) charge top dollar and price wasn't much of distinguishing factor.
That's because everything is way more expensive out there. :p

I had a recruiter from a very well known tech company in the Bay Area reach out to me about a job. It sounds interesting, and I'm following up, but I don't know how they can pay me enough to not have a major lifestyle downgrade. To live the same amount of time to work, I would have to pay 8-10x what my current house is worth. Plus my state income tax rate would go up significantly.

Shoulda sent em to Catholic schools. They'd either be turned off religion forever or become (hopefully) pious like me.

Also, I swear you've posted way more than your count indicates.

Finally breaking in new tiki mug. The painkiller is a bit off. But its actually dulling a really shitty week for me personally. Helping my parents company out with something and my mom throws me under a bus. Just like i dont want anything to fucking do with them right now. I know shes a shitty manager because she doesn't really express what she wants or is thinking or generally handle things that are more than simple.

Anyway this was the mug for the tiki festival in Atlanta earlier this year. Couldn't make it but now i have the mug.

Hotlanta is landlocked but had a tiki festival. Georgia is gunning for Florida's crown.

I wonder how many polynesians live in the ATL? I put the O/U at 3.

Look, if the shit I'm posting is factually accurate I'm not doing my job. This does remind me of that time I killed a man in Morocco because he could have been the man I was looking for.

My lily white neighborhood has a Samoan Baptist Church at the end of the block. Being large people, with large families, they drive really large vehicles, which they proceed to double park out front, which has created all sorts of fun and racially tinged tension in the ‘hood over the years.

The company I used to pour a couple of patios at my last house was owned and operated by a bunch of poly guys. If you think the average poly is big, think of a crew of poly concrete workers . . .

Weather looks fine to me. For you softass losers the 18th looks to be the high water mark.
