  1. I'm thinking about taking the family to Niagara Falls this Summer. I assume Maid of the Mist and Cave of the Winds are worth doing? I see they have bike rentals which could be a fun way to get around. How much time can we spend there? Other stuff to do in the area? As of now, I'm considering staying in Buffalo because I can get a good deal at the Embassy Suites there which works well for my family size (5). We'll be driving from the DC area, but I'm not opposed to going out of the way a bit. For example, is Cuyahoga worth a detour?
  2. This is a pretty common theological view of God, but I don't get it. I get not believing in God's existence or not worshipping God because of things like kids dying from AIDS. What I don't get are views that God doing X (shuffling a playlist) prevents him from doing Y (healing sick children).
  3. Well, I think it depends on what one's view is about the existence of God. If someone assumes God doesn't exist, then there's certainly nothing interesting about the former. If someone assumes God does exist, then I think God's level of interaction with us is pretty interesting.
  4. Yep, that's me. Never tired an alcoholic drink that I liked the taste enough to make it part of beverage selections. Maybe some of the weaker drinks have been somewhat decent, but so many other things I'd rather drink and for much cheaper. The amount of money people spend on alcohol amazes me. I have personally never experienced their effects. Never been drunk or even buzzed. But, I'm pretty confident I'd hate the effects. I just see no positives of alcohol consumption for me.
  5. https://twitter.com/john_keim/status/1103844059104399362?s=21 If the Redskins traded for Josh Rosen (if he’s even available), the Redskins combined cap hits of the 4 QBs would be less than Kirk Cousins’ in Minnesota. Now, u can go ahead and argue about who has it better.
  6. It’s March. What’s the argument against having 3 QBs right now? I see nothing that would stop them from having 3 now (whether it’s Rosen, a draft pick, or someone else) and then cutting one in August if they don’t want 3 in the regular season.
  7. I don’t see why this would stop them from trading from Rosen.

  9. It's good value and I like that it's not a trade that makes it a lock that Washington sees Keenum as the unquestioned starter. I can still see them going after Rosen or someone else.
  10. Mike Klis‏Verified account @MikeKlis 6m6 minutes ago Broncos have trade parameters with Washington for QB Case Keenum: Broncos get WAS 6th in 2020, WAS gets Broncos 7th in '20, per source. Keenum's contract reworked. Broncos pay him $500K restructure bonus and pay $3.5 million of his $7M salary. Washington pays $3.5 mi. #9sports
  11. Why do I get the feeling that we're going to give up way too much here?
  12. Are you a Hilton Honors member? I see some pretty low rates for 4/19-4/22 on the Hilton app. Several rates called Hilton Long Weekender which give you half off Sunday night if you are a Hilton Honors member. $127 for 2 Queen beds at the Hilton Garden Inn on M Street NW. Or $102 at the Washington Hilton on Connecticut Avenue for 2 double beds. A couple downtown Embassy Suites in the $170s for 1 King and 1 sofa bed (and a good breakfast included). And really good rates ($82-134) in Crystal City/National Airport area, which will be an easy Metro ride downtown. If you're not a member, it's easy enough to sign up and get those rates. Marriott seems to have similar rates, but I didn't look into each of those too closely.
  13. Everything will be open. Cherry blossoms should be done by then so crowds shouldn't be too bad.
  14. I'm game. Not that I think it will work, but whatever they'd do with those draft picks probably wouldn't work either so let's get crazy.
  15. Might go in July for our anniversary. Other than “It will be hot and humid”, looking forward to some input here.

  17. People obviously won’t do this and for good reason. And that good reason has absolutely nothing to do with giving you an interest free loan.
  18. I assume the OP would imply that schools would share data with the DMV. When it comes to public schools, both are government institutions so I guess that could happen. But, then what about private schools and home school? Force them to share grade data with the DMV?
  19. So is that the purpose of this? To improve school performance? If so, I'd propose finding another way and not link grades to drivers licenses. Or is there another goal? To have fewer young drivers? Then maybe just make the driving tests harder. I guess I just don't get the point.
  20. Maybe. In 2017, someone in the 25% tax bracket reduced their taxes by $2012.50 per child (($4050 tax exemption X 0.25)+$1000). In 2018, the personal tax exemption is gone and it's a straight $2000 and that filer is probably now in the 22% tax bracket. However, 2018 did raise the income limit to claim the full child tax credit so that helped those over $110,000 AGI.
  21. Actually, in this poll, we're talking closer to $40 ($38.46) per week because it's not a choice between $1000 refund and $0 refund/owed. We're comparing $1000 refund vs $1000 owed which is $2000/year. So, you technically can invest $2000/year. Yeah, interest in savings accounts are low and nothing to get excited about here even after doubling the money. But, you could put $1000 of that $2000 in a Roth and let the other $1000 sit in savings (earning almost nothing) to then pay IRS. Of course, this plan assumes you know exactly what you're tax bill will be and if you know that then you might as well work it out to be a $0 balance and still put that $1000 in your Roth.

  23. I've been but not in a long time. As with most of the "local" ski resorts, it should be good for kids as new skiers since you're probably not going to be looking for anything difficult or amazing runs. Not sure what the amenities (lodging, restaurants, etc) are like.
