I've had similar things happen when some company was asking me to please interview for a job or "explore an opportunity." Despite not being interested in leaving where I was, I took a day of vacation to travel for the interview. Then, even though *they* were the ones that prompted the interview, they did a lot of dumb things like be late, or just start looking at my resume after the interview started.

I got a lot better at fielding the initial inquiry. When they couldn't even give an intelligent answer to my question, I knew to not pursue things any further.

Counterpoint: If you keep buying with every paycheck, you buy more shares when prices are down. When the stock market bounces back, you'll have more than if the market made a straight line up to the eventual price. Of course, you need to buy something that has nearly no chance of crashing without recovering, so invest in the S&P500 index and not in Bitcoin or NFTs.

This is how ALL instructions were for a Japanese-made products in the 1960s. They got someone there in Japan who claimed he could speak English to translate the instructions and/or manual. Stereo equipment would have a 20-word long sentence with no verb.

Later on, someone must've had the bright idea to have someone whose native language was American English to translate, or at least check the translation.

A ton of Star Wars is ripped straight from westerns and stories of good vs. evil.
Even from "The Seven Samurai."
Maybe it's all just numbers in a database somewhere? 11 comments

Paying your bills on time is one of the three biggest factors in your credit score. It is good to use a credit card and pay it off every month. Never being late is what makes your score high, NOT the amount of interest paid.

Also, charging close to your limit may lower your score temporarily because of a high credit utilization, but it should return a couple weeks after you've paid the bill.

In order to REALLY get attention and validation, you need to "discover" that your toddler is transgender.

Well, based on what's in the news, that is.

Doubly ironic that the guy protesting the protestors makes a claim that he is "Smarter than the 'Scietists'."

Once while browsing through the stacks, my eyes fell upon a book titled something like "How To Love Your Kids Even If They're Complete A**holes." I took a photo of that and kept it for future use, which hasn't really presented itself.

Luckily for not more than four hours at a time, otherwise I'd have to call my doctor.

bethorien--Many play at being rich, thanks to their high consumption. A lot of those even have high incomes. But, not that many of them are *rich*. So, in a lot of ways, the point stands.

Most people who wish to have a million dollars actually wish to *spend* a million dollars, which is really the opposite.

I'm sorry, but since you're not a movie celebrity, government official, or pro athlete, you're not just allowed to proclaim yourself an expert.

I like that it's an "auto biography" instead of an autobiography.

And even if you never decide to get into shooting sports, who is harmed by learning first hand about firearms safety? Or by having responsibly handled something that get casually screwed around with in TV and movies?
