  1. My high school team is ranked in the top 20 in Texas. It’s almost playoff time.

    The Anti-MLM Thread

    The son of the owner I worked for has been 100% full time with that travel MLM for 25 years now. He was a great salesman to begin with. My disagreement I have with him is people he never would have hired for a salary sales job, he'd accept their money to start their "own business", then criticize them for not being successful. Damn they never would need successful in sales no matter the job or commission structure. I made some money with the Prepaid Legal advice MLM program but had to get out when my full time job required me to a no part time job restriction. I missed the hustle. If you think about it the commission structure it's the same as other sales. You make a sale and your sales manager, general manager, area manager, regional manager, VP, President, and shareholders make money. That sounds like multi levels. The difference is by buying in, the company has no investment in you and will hire anyone. Of course people fail.

    2019 Catch-All

    I struggle with this situation. I always show respect. I'm not a big fan of the Anthem at Blackhawk games but it does energize me and I feel the love for America. Everyone on the planet has the freedom to show respect for their country. Stand for the anthem in North Korea or die. So yeah we have the exact same freedom as the rest of the world. So why are we so proud of our "freedoms". Religious freedom? As long as you are Christian. Freedom of speech? Yeah as long as you don't criticize the government or soldiers. Freedom of movement? We're want to wall off part of the United States. Freedom of unlawful search and seizure? If you are innocent why do you need that? Freedom of the press? That's a liberal conspiracy to make Republicans look bad. Freedom to protest? Just don't do it anywhere you will inconvenience anyone. Perhaps protest at home. Yet we talk about how great our freedoms are but don't want anyone else to be free.

    Former Sox updates (Avi, etc)

    I feel their pain. I remember the Billy Botch year. I wish Sale all the best.

    I posted here first and dipped my toe in the WSI waters in 2005. One of the admins was threatening to ban someone who was claiming the Sox were going to blow the division lead but only if the Sox won the division. I pointed out that was stupid, if the Sox won the division the poster should stay and get heckled. Why have a "I predicted the collapse" hanging around. It was suggested I go post elsewhere. 🤣

    Machado do-over

    Yet you said you didn't want guys who were overpaid the final years on their contracts.

    Machado do-over

    I was agreeing with you until the final statement. With baseball contracts the player is almost always overpaid the last couple of seasons. They are often times underpaid towards the start of the contract. You will always have players you are overpaying for that season, underpaying some players, and a few unicorns will be exactly what they are worth.

    Don Cooper’s Eventual Replacement

    Sigh, look at former players from circa 2000. McDowell or Buehrle. #expecttheworse Joking, a little

    2019 Home Improvement

    I'm assuming you live in the Chicago area. Since this is labor only lets break it down. Two workers should be able to remove your old stuff in one day. The carpet will be fast, the tile show. So 16 hours of labor. One worker should be able to install 500 square feet in one day. So two guys, one day, 16 more hours of labor. I'm at 32 hours. I don't have a calculator but I think that's around $75 per hour to the company. It seems like it's in the ballpark. Have you considered doing some or all of it yourself?

    E Notebooks

    They scan in less than a second. I have six different places for the scans to go which also saves time. I like being able to have the pages as a real notebook until I choose to erase them. So far it's been handy.

    Bigruss, is the step in the bathroom or outside the bathroom? Depending how they mounted the carpet you may have glue residual to worry about. I was thinking finishing the concrete by either acid or paint. Pictures would help.

    2019 Catch-All

    At least a couple of my friends are nervous enough to not want to travel beyond south Texas. That pisses me off and makes me really sad to realize that a lot of people believe that makes America great again. The same guy probably yells and screams throughout the anthem at Hawk games.

    Jeffrey Epstein

    Next interesting step, where did he get his money. I just finished a NYTimes article that indicates banks are looking into his finances.

    Jeffrey Epstein

    It's unfair to accuse everyone who ever hung out with Epstein of being pedophiles. I believe it's even unfair to accuse those who hung out with Epstein and have checkered sexual pasts of infidelities of also being pedophiles. There's a leap there that some people will not cross even if they like to have extramarital sex with interns and porn actresses.
