Re: The World's Energy Future

How do you suggest adapting our lungs to particulates in the air?

I'm not too concerned about particulates? They have been on a steady decline here over the last decade.

Re: Grand Opening

The existence of this project points to a huge competitive advantage available to Berkshire companies. First, a privately held retail furniture would not have been able to build anything of this scale because they would not have been able to get [more]

Re: What if the Bucs take Mariota?

However, the Raiders didn't used to be a losing team.
The Raiders I remember were pretty formidable.
With some good players and coaching, they could be again.
I was thinking more in line with the Jaguars. THERE's a losing

TV-wise it should set Tyler to doing some wheeling/dealing since with Mike's HII and Dan's 'advantage' he knows there could be 3 votes against him at the next council.

Re: Due Diligence

All you seem to do is say "I want" and this doesn't provide it, so it must be bad.

I never said bad in my posts. That is something again that you are making up. You should really stop. Here is a simple example for you - [more]

Re: Due Diligence

You completely FAIL to understand the purpose and structure of a pension plan. It IS NOT a balance you can tap into. It IS a promise to provide you an income stream at retirement. It IS NOT your money to do with as you please. It IS a promise to [more]

Re: Parenting teens

I don't see anything wrong. If the neighbor is a qualified mechanic, it's probably cheaper to let him do it than take the car to a dealer or independent garage. And since I don't know the relationship between mother and mechanic, I don't know if she [more]

Can anyone identify that “Mossberg” shotgun in the 8th photo and where did a 17-year old get it, huuuggh?

Looks like a customized Mossberg 500. Desertdave already gave a link to the stock.

Re: Due Diligence

I believe you are misinformed - and you parrot a talking point of those who seek to eliminate pensions in favor of 401(k) plans only. First, the "pension" benefit, once accrued is ALWAYS a benefit to be paid to the participant at the [more]

Or perhaps they never bothered to fix an out-of-date "over 12 stocks" answer while providing the specifics required.

Then there is no oversight by TMF of profiles so the disclosure policy is pretty much worthless. Maybe they [more]

My usual problem in a store is that I can't get any help

I have the opposite problem. Store employees are too helpful. When I'm browsing, I want to be left alone. I don't need interrupted every 5 minutes asking me if I need help. [more]

I don't think lack of a Facebook page hurts anyone unless their future employer is a social media company.

Re: Due Diligence

Truth be told, we need to go BACK to a system of pensions - but that's a political battle and a PERCEPTION one as well (gee, wonder why they call them "old fashioned" pensions? - It's to condition people to not like them). They were [more]
