    Presidential Election 2020 - ManChild vs Adult

    I actually said " But not so good on quality of life if you are not in the top, say 20%, economically" which you quoted as " But not so good on quality of life ..." And looking at the quality of life of the world's population as a whole is hardly an admirable standard. If the USA cannot deliver an equal or better standard of living for most of its population than other western democracies, it is some way off being the greatest nation.

    So long as they will pay for an ice sculpture of the Fun Bunch end-zone celebration everyone should be on board.

    Presidential Election 2020 - ManChild vs Adult

    Deserves its own thread, although I think it's been done before. I've been to 56 for what it's worth. USA would be at the top for entrepreneurship, cultural influence, world-class universities, and global power of course. But not so good on quality of life if you are not in the top, say 20%, economically. The USA has been very good financially to this immigrant, but if I was, say, a teacher or nurse, there are at least 25 countries I can think of where you would have a better family life. And if your family is poor, the USA ranks very poorly compared to western nations.
  5. Will they pay for the wall too?

    Tesla Model 3 Release

    Actively looking for a new car at the moment. Very torn about the Tesla 3 or S, but have my heart set on a two-door coupe and $250k for the Roadster seems excessive.

    Yeah ... the margins between winning and losing are incredibly small with two good teams, but the Barcelona defense should be embarrassed by the fourth goal until they are in their graves.

    I didn't see it. I don't know why my DVR didn't automatically record it. Hopefully TNT will have it on Demand very soon. All the other Champions League games are on there.

    I'm in a WhatsApp group with my family who are all Liverpool fans and still live in Europe. After the game they started chatting about the result indirectly and I couldn't believe it. Is the whole game available here? I didn't see it to DVR on any of the channels I get.

    Liverpool without Firmino and Keita just don’t create enough.

  14. Let's ban making eye contact or speaking to one another as that can be very threatening.
  15. And there's work and "work'. A study quite a few years ago By HP showed that with distractions and interruptions, most people struggle to do 6 productive half-hours a day. i.e. 15 productive hours a week.

    2019 NFL Draft discussion thread

    He got attention from the 41.4 he ran in the 40.
  17. I went to the zoo the other day. It only had one animal ... a small dog. it was a shih tzu I think my mom would like a new pet to keep her company.
  18. Eh no. Your social security taxes have already been spent on today's retirees. The problem is that there will be more retirees than workers paying into the system by the time your turn comes.
  19. The state has taken a 12.4% tax on her income over her working lifetime with the promise that they will help cover her living expenses post work. But she's greedy to expect any of that money.
  20. With a personal retirement account there is clearly an amount saved and how long that will last based on a rate of consumption. Social security is not supposed to work like that.
  21. You mean that the poor outlive the amount they pay in. Eliminating Medicare is a simple solution to take care of the problem so that they live shorter lives.
  22. How much can be accomplished by kicking age where full benefits are paid? I.e. have the peasants work until they are 75+ to earn the full payout.

    What was the best vacation of your life

    Hard to pick one, but my favorites are active vacations ... driving/rail tours in Europe (Ireland's coast, Scotland, Wales, England, French Alps & Pyrenees, Spain, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Croatia, Italy, Greece) taking in scenery, history and great food with some hiking too to get away from crowds. Also had great times hiking alone in the wilderness in various places. If we go to the beach it's when they are deserted in the Spring or Fall and we can walk for hours with the dogs.

    Massive fire engulfs Paris Notre Dame Cathedral

    "WTF is he supposed to say?" How about something that aren't the words of a ****ing moron. Something simple like Obama wrote: "Notre Dame is one of the world’s great treasures, and we’re thinking of the people of France in your time of grief. It’s in our nature to mourn when we see history lost – but it’s also in our nature to rebuild for tomorrow, as strong as we can."
