Re: Happy Things Go Here

Finally found a gun store to do transfers for me that is just outrageously expensive, rather than obscenely expensive. But they're easy to deal with and located between where I buy my steel for metal working projects and the bakery in the old neighborhood with the really good subs. So now I can kil...

Re: Grumbly Things Go Here

I really don't understand artists who take a job, then go silent until they're finished without providing sketches or having any sort of communication with you. Especially when the job is different than anything else in their portfolio. Maybe it's just as simple as many artists aren't good at busin...

Re: Bittersweet things go here

One of my coworkers is leaving to go to Amazon. It's a good opportunity for him but it's yet another good worker leaving. I wish we could get our culture fixed so that we attract good people instead of chasing them away. Alternatively, you could follow one of them to a better place. Sure, but I don...

Re: Happy Things Go Here

Also, I think that you have the order of Roth's backwards. IIRC, You should fully fund the Roth first because you don't pay taxes on the money when you draw it out. That means you don't pay taxes on the accumulated interest. There are various schools of thought regarding what to put where. Some peo...

Re: Happy Things Go Here

It is fascinating to listen (ok, read) to you folks talking (ok, writing) in a completely foreign language. I've picked up that you are talking about some kind of tax scheme, or possibly an investment account of some kind, but all the rest is just gibberish to me. Funny how we take things for grant...

Re: Happy Things Go Here

You know the max is 19k, right? Not a percentage? I mean, I guess if your salary is 190k then you would max out at 10% but most people seem to not know what the actual 401k limits are so I thought I'd mention it. I was thinking of something else. Maybe the max match from my company (which is 6%). A...
