“After a fast I like to do an aerobic activity for an hour or so. The idea is that it will train my body to burn fat since I will be in a low glycogen state by that point. Being conditioned to going a while without food sure makes it easier to skip food at meal time if there's only junk available.”

“The outrage machine has been running full throttle. For the past week Huffpost has been issuing decrees on what is in poor taste and what costumes are not to be worn. Ever since adults stole Halloween from the kids the costumes have been about outrageousness and poor taste.
30,000 people a year die in auto accidents. I've lost friends and family to auto accidents. I had several trick-or-treaters come dressed as accident victims. I didn't feel outraged because guess what - it isn't all about me.
The on line bullies seem worse than the costume.”

“What's with the gray dots on the health care spending chart? They have no mathematical significance but are presented as data points. Percentage of GDP does not track with actual dollar amount spent indicated by the red line, but the gray dots are placed at the peaks of the red line. There should be two scales or just leave the gray dots off and leave the percentages in parentheses.
The graph on the super rich may look impressive, but using absolute numbers is a fox news style trick. Per capita numbers would be more meaningful.”

“I would rather work than manage a rental.”

swoosie1 on Sep 29, 2013 at 13:46:00

“It is difficult to manage rentals on your own, but you can and should use rental management companies, who take a very small percentage for handling ALL the headaches, including managing the rents, repairs, finding excellent renters, increasing rents over time and all contact with the renters. You do nothing but receive the checks. You don't need to interview renters nor do you ever meet them. It is seamless. There are many great rental management teams who do this in every city around the country. Ask for references. For some, it is about $75 a month on a $1000 dollar rental, and the fee is prorated based on the rent fee. The more the rent costs per home, the more the management fee per home. Being a landlord is no longer a headache if you use rental management teams.”

“30,000+ driving deaths a year, 30,000+ gun related deaths annually and 10-15 terrorism related deaths annually and the government issues a terrorism alert? A terrorism death must be 6,000 times as bad.”
