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: 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.

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...

Re: Happy Things Go Here

The 401K Loan I took out to pay off my student loans* will be paid on in less than two paychecks. With that, the last remnants of my old life (where my 1st wife ran up ungodly amounts of debts prior to her death and I was manipulated into taking out more student loans than I needed because I was st...

Re: Cool and/or useful tools for your game

By coincidence, a Facebook group I belonged to recently asked members to post about the props and GM aids they use in their games, with pictures. I thought I'd share here, too, in case it might be useful for someone. First off, for D&D 5E, I found the inspiration system... uninspiring. It didn'...

Re: Bittersweet things go here

NASA has officially declared the Opportunity Rover dead. They made their last attempt to contact it last night, and received no response. We sent it up there for a 90 day mission, and it lasted 15 years. As always, XKCD is on point. https://imgs.xkcd.com/comics/opportunity_rover.png Hover over text...

Re: Aquaman

Well, it's been a while since I've been asked to open up this can but here goes >.> It's visually ugly, boring, and structurally nonsensical. It's way too long and yet very little happens in it. The central premise is just flawed (a bunch of mostly un-powered criminals are supposed to stop "su...

Re: Aquaman

I thought it was like Bumblebee. Bumblebee isn't a good Transformers movie but it is the best Transformers movie. Aquaman isn't a good DC movie but it is the best DC movie excepting Wonder Woman. I'd put it in around Suicide Squad. You'd put the second best DC movie around the absolute worst DC mov...
