  1. It's a great version. Enjoy it more than the iconic version.
  2. Likely was built in the U.S. by U.S. workers.
  3. Yes and yes. This link shows you the difference in tones. Ignore the middle position as it's a blend of the two, and you'll hear hear the stark difference in tone between the neck and bridge positions.
  4. People are different and react differently. Some want to ignore the elephant in the room. Others don't want you to pretend it isn't there. You're just going to have to read the situation and behave accordingly. If they do bring the topic up, don't be afraid to engage in an honest discussion and tell them that you are willing to help out any way you can. But only say that if you really are willing to help out in a material way. Good luck.
  5. So Trump victimizes women by assaulting them, then by humiliating and degrading them, and now by financially destroying them through litigation. Good guy.
  6. Trump: The problem is that we regulate business too much. Regulation is destroying business. Trump: I'm going to regulate businesses! There will be consequences!!!
  7. Huh, I'll have to check the replay. I thought it was a forward pass, but you're probably right.
  8. and Espn treating the Poe score as a running TD. That can't be right, can it?
  9. Both Trump and Clinton talked about Muslims being the eyes and ears of our homelands security efforts, and to report things they see and hear. I really wanted the Muslim woman who asked the question about Islamaphobia to respond along the lines of "Um, I work as a paralegal at a law firm in St. Louisv and don't have any friends or acquaintances who are terrorists. I've never been over at someone's house while they are building a bomb, so I'm not exactly sure what that has to do with my question."
  10. What loopholes is he closing with respect to capital gains that will make it taxed like ordinary income?
  11. I don't think the bolded is correct. He still proposes capping capital gains at 20%.
  12. Georgia Tech ranked higher than UCI last I checked.
  13. Beat me to it.
  14. Repealing the estate tax would result in a huge tax increase on estates below the estate tax threshold as there would be no justification for maintaining step-up basis. Put another way, middle class and lower class households benefit greatly from the estate tax, which allows for the avoidance of capital gains on inherited assets. So if the estate tax were eliminated, only the very rich would benefit, and everyone else would likely end up paying more in taxes.
  15. At this point, I don't really care what kills his candidacy, just so long as it's killed.
