  2. "We" don't saddle anybody with debt -- the student decides on their own whether they want to go to graduate school, and they also decide whether to borrow to finance their degree, whether to pay for it in cash, or some combination of the two. People who want to cancel student debt need to explain why people who chose to borrow should retroactively get their purchase for free, while people who chose to pay up front should get nothing.

  3. The victim of the unpaid internship system isn’t your son. It’s the person that can’t do the unpaid internship because he needs to pay his rent and eat. And then can’t get the six-figure job later because he doesn’t have the experience that your son has.

  4. I’m a 180 from this guy. The mainstream media’s normalization of Trump’s psychotic, infantile behavior these past several years is inexcusable. Never has a public figure been treated with kid gloves like this man was. He said and did things on a daily basis, day after day for years, that are completely unacceptable in any professional setting, and the media essentially stopped reporting it, I suppose out of fatigue more than anything.

  5. This is way early. Pro Day workouts and the NFL Draft will drastically change my draft board, but I figured I would share this as a work in progress. Links to Shark Pool player profiles are provided (compliments of @Faust) where they were available, otherwise, I just linked to some highlight tape, so you can familiarize yourself with the player, if you wish. I left off my player analysis for now, as well as my "range of comparisons". I will add those later, but it seemed a bit premature yet. (Update 3/04/2021 to add First Round analysis) Most of my rankings are penciled in, with t

  6. Here you go Sand, a group of college buddies and I put in some time reviewing all of the SPACs out there and after research these were our top picks that I currently hold. With varying degrees of maturity and length of hold. EXPC - Owned by Lupton and ARK, announced Blade as acquisition, should pop when deal is completed and ticker change. TRXC - Owned by Lupton, who has been dominating the small cap growth stock scene...he just started a position a few days ago. BZUN - Lupton says it's an easy double over the next year, chinese company, comparisons to Shopify AHAC

  8. Ok...so was on the phone last night vs trying to type this out and not sure how much I was going to share. Last August/Sept, our son was hospitalized after taking a handful of pills. Thankfully, he threw them up pretty quickly before we were even alerted to what he had done. After a trip to the ER and a psych evaluation there, he was admitted to a facility. Severe depression. That may have been the worst night of my life. My wife took him to the hospital (only one person could be there...plus I was home with our daughter as this happened late at night). So I spent a night not knowin

  10. Over the past several years, you've truly gone off the deep end in terms of defending every single thing that "your team" does and (intentionally?) mischaracterizing everything the "opposing team" does. You know full well that the Capitol incident involved hundreds of people illegally entering the building, with a significant subset of those entering via violent means. You know full well that some officers actively assisted some of those who entered illegally. We have recordings of this. We know these things for a fact. Yet you persist in false equivalencies and outright lies rather than

  16. Big news for The_Son - just found out he got the Rubenstein Scholarship from Chicago! Full tuition + a $20,000 per year stipend. Last week he was fortunate enough to be offered a full-tuition scholarship from NYU (which is confusingly called the Vanderbilt Scholarship) but with the NYC cost of living, it is still going to be about $90,000 out of pocket to go there. Pretty sure he's going to take the Chicago offer, except that his girlfriend of 5+ years is living in NYC and working for the US Attorney there through Fall of 2022 when she plans to start law school. So he's got to figure out wheth

  17. Very encouraging "tempo" for me this morning. First mile easy-in at 6:21 followed up by four miles at 5:54, 5:50, 5:42, 5:49. I wore my fast shoes. I hadn't worn them since spring since they weren't great for my foot injury. That injury is better now. Overall time was 29:40. That ties my 5 mile race PR coincidentally even with the slower first mile. Fastest I've ever run a four mile stretch ever. Perceived effort was less than race effort. I must be in better shape than I thought. I'm not running tons of miles but it must be some combination of consistency, strength ex

  19. Aside from the awareness I hope this thread brought about, it also should show everyone that we aren't alone with this stuff. And it doesn't mean we aren't good parents when our kids are going through these issues. It's heartbreaking reading through some of these posts, but there's some comfort as well to see that we aren't failing them just because they go through this. I wanted to add another part that I think plays a part, even moreso for us as parents. We hear or read stories or see things on Facebook, or whatever it might be about kids that accomplish these amazing things. And I kno

So far have seen a couple bugs (millipedes and random ####) and a 2' iguana who was kicking it by the pool. Mosquitos have been a non issue and we've been outside all night.

  23. This is exactly how misunformation ends up running rampant in right wing circles and why it's so hard to combat it. Having had the benefit of watching parts of the trial, I'm actually familiar with the story so I know why it is a stupid allegation. But disingenuous prople like Trump's lawyer and Hannity, etc. say "The Democrats doctored evidence!" and then disingenuous people and low-information right wing people all over repeat "doctored evidence!" and then people that already mistrust and hate the Democrats say "see!" They don't realize or care how stupid the story is so they just ke

I can't quite say why I've been so MIA lately (outside of my one Christmas update) but it's probably just a combination of being busy with Baby Harris, COVID-life stress leading to an overall poor mental state, deaths in the family, work craziness/starting a new job, and figuring out our lives after deciding that we're moving back to Chicago....

  25. Really tried to fly under the radar since my failed MP run a few weeks ago. But, super sleuth Juxt called me out so... Ever since that run, something has been way off. The day of the run, my VO2Max was 60. Now, it's at 57. I took a step-back week after that run because I knew something was off, but that did not help. My fitness, form, breathing, confidence, and expectations have plummeted. I have no idea why, but every run since has been a struggle. My dress rehearsal Wednesday was brutal. The run called for 7 with 2 at MP. My 2 MP miles felt like a dead sprint (7:10 and 7:13). It r

  26. Olde Girdled Grit Half Marathon This race was...something else, but as I commented a few days ago this was expected. The course conditions warning from the race director while not surprising was appreciated and led me to tee up a few different contingency plans. I headed out to the course a little early to scout out the worst parts. I hadn't ran here before, but I know enough that have to know where the problem areas likely reside. The 50K and half marathon groups went off before us, so there were already volunteers around the problem areas. I came packing with old road shoes, yaktr

  27. Here's more or less my FEMA volunteer experience. I went into it knowing that at 15 hours they more or less would give you a shot, this wasn't some altruistic thing, I knew that going in nearly certainly I'd come out of this with a shot. I went out there mid morning on Friday, and they gave me the rundown and I went out to basically mark cars with the information like 1st/2nd/Pfizer/Moderna and people inside and how they were going to validate. I got whisked off to a far corner of fair park and just went thru the line taking down this information and chalk painting it on the winds

  29. Stepped on the scale this morning and saw 219.6. That's probably just a nice fluctuation and I'll be back to 220.4 tomorrow morning but it was exciting. The last two months I've been losing weight i already lost back in October when I got the scale to briefly show 219.8, then celebrated by eating and drinking everything I could for a couple months. Which means this is officially the least I've weighed in the last 15 years, maybe longer. Every pound I lose from here on out is a new record. And since I have clearly added muscle, this is the best shape I've been in in my adult life. Feels

  32. Valentines Day Kind Of Sucks A few thoughts: If this is the one time a year you buy your person flowers, you can do better. If this is the one time a year when you're extra thoughtful or nice to your person, you can do a lot better. Moreover, Valentine's Day is a manufactured, made-up, BS day. Supposedly signifying something many of us should be doing every day. Suddenly caring more about your person on the 14th day of February is like suddenly caring about the direction and path of your life on the 1st day of January. It's better than never caring. But not by much. These a

  33. Was thinking of this thread last night. It has been just about a year since everything fell apart around here. We had a trip to Niagara Falls booked for my birthday in March that we cancelled due to uncertainty around COVID. On March 17th we had our first case at work. Led to an outbreak. A coworker's wife died. Since then I know over 45 people that have had it including both my sons, my daughter-in-law and grandkids. A number of people who have died. My son who lives with me had it and my wife and I avoided it. I believe whole heartedly that we were able to navigate those two weeks safely bec

And I had really hoped that with the change in administration, we would talk about more issues and have some productive conversations. But thread still go awry. We can't actually talk about the subject matter. We have to talk about "Well what about this thing Trump did? You didn't speak out against that?" "Well you didn't speak out against the Antifa riots, but you're mad about the capitol riots?" Why can't it just be bad when Pelosi doesn't wear a mask--regardless of what Trump does?

  36. Please stop comparing the Jan 6 insurrection to the race riots over the summer. They are not the same. The former was a clear and direct attack on the legislative branch to prevent them from doing their constitutionally required duties. The latter was a continuation of the same protests we have seen since the 60's. This "BoffSidez!" theme is damaging and an attempt to avoid introspection.

  38. YOLO and I have had such a wonderful life at that. Today I go all-in with GME. First let me say that this is not sound financial advice and I am not a cat. Don't do what I do with money you can't lose. It's reckless at best and could implode on me in a big way. I think there is a real chance (above 15%) that GME could get caught in a gamma squeeze. It tried to happen yesterday when the stock showed massive support at 125 which gave it fuel to push to 150. Breaking 150 triggers so many call options that once it broke through it was knocking on the 180s. Fuel stops get triggered

  39. 86. The Kinks “Destroyer” (from Give the People What They Want) https://youtu.be/_WJ6FbcWYRU The Kinks were actually a pretty good 80s band, as Ray Davies still had some songwriting chops left in him. This song steals their classic riff from “All Day and All of the Night”, throws in some new lines about Lola, and focuses on that old Davies’ obsession, paranoia. What’s not to love?

  42. Alright I'm in. In June of 2019 I finished my 25th ultramarathon race with the San Diego 100 miler. I weighed in the low 180s then, so at 5' 11" in no way was I skinny as I still had a bit of a gut (I'm most definitely not built like a runner), but I was feeling pretty good. Later in 2019 I did my normal seasonal drift up in weight in the winter to the mid-190s. Then Covid happened, all races were cancelled for 2020, and my motivation waned as I drifted up over 200 lbs. I suffered two injuries in the first half of 2020 that kept me from running much or at all for weeks-months at

  46. “No unity unless you submit to our gas lighting about the election and the events of 1/6,” is a hell of hill to die on, but you do you. Plenty of Republicans knew it was wrong. Multiple cabinet members quit. Liz Cheney risked her leadership post. Probably at least five GOP senators will vote to convict. This should be a layup for any GOP Senator, because God knows they would (rightly!) call for the impeachment of any Democrat who did this. So again, do you. But we know who is really putting politics over unity. It’s the ones defending the indefensible.

  49. "For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever." One of Jefferson's listed complaints against the King in the Declaration of Independence was this specific complaint. In a nutshell, the King and his army would stand as a threat against the colonial leaders who tried to assemble in order to legislate and lead. They were forced, for years, to act under threat of violence, arrest and execution. One of the many issues the Revolution was instituted to stop was the idea that any one power or person could make it
