Gotta say, the new drone is effing awesome. Looking forward to getting good at this thing. 
Side note, my roomies are planning on moving out by October! On the three year mark of living here, I am going to help them buy a house and GTFO so my lady can move in here. 

Strange times to be doing good, I am extremely thankful.

This year?

I think it's going to break down far closer to the age bracket splits than in previous elections.

The GOP is getting pretty toxic, even for the military.

I am more curious bout the helicopter crash that killed multiple Trump employees.
What did he know bout it?

Spent most of last night and today taking care of busted kiddo. She's doing well considering. Calling Scottish Rite tomorrow for follow-up and long-term plan.

Due to rain and busted kiddo, I only got one tree cut down. But I've got another near ready to come down!

I don't know how old the kid is but I think I was about that age when I broke my arm in a horrible bat boy accident. Nothing in my life hurt more. But kids are like Bumbles from  Rudolf the Red Nose Raindeer. "Bumbles Bounce"! After the pain was over I was fine but what sucked was I broke it right before I went on my first real vacation. A long camping trip from Michigan to the Pacific Ocean. What sucked is there were HUNDREDS of chances for great swimming and you were not supposed to get the cast wet. We did wrap it in plastic bags and I got some swimming in...but not too much the bags didn't work that well. I had a great time any way but I would have liked to swim more. :)

I am reading a thread bout mask wearing, and one person pointed where they were. Mask compliance was high...but people don't know how to wear them properly. I think a minute or two explanation video might be in order. I will be honest here, I was wearing mine upside down sometimes before I figured it out.

This was not quite plug and play, like a MakerBot or some other turnkey systems.

This is more for the home hobbyist who doesn't mind losing a bit of fidelity and doing some tweaking in order to save a couple/few hundred bucks.

It took my son about half a day to get it together, and up and running.

It took me another couple hours of rearranging cables and leveling the bed to get it going, properly.

For less than $200, it's pretty entertaining.

Good afternoon, fellow misfits.

I have to choose a toilet. Here in the earthquake state it has to be 1.28gpf, but I read that CO and TX also have that rule. Since it's a relatively recent requirement, maybe nobody in this august forum has one. But if you do, I'd greatly appreciate your letting me know your model and flushing performance.

We installed a Toto Carlyle 1.6gpf about twenty years ago. I consider its performance marginal. I don't have high hopes for this round.

I've long worked on the corporate side of companies in industries with seasonal labor and variable headcounts based on consumer demand. That variation is a fact of life on Earth. Never once have I heard anyone, anywhere referred to as "stock". Because they're people. Stock is the merchandise, not the people. It's not a hard distinction unless you're a psychopath.

At best, and very generously, Kevin Hassett is using an extremely antiquated term used to describe bloodlines, e.g. "He came from good stock", in reference to ancestry; this would have been a more common term 50-100 years ago. This is like during Trump's recent Ford excursion when he praised Henry Ford's "good bloodlines", where by "good" he meant "pure" and by "pure" he meant "free from Jews and mongrel (mixed) races". This is all weird old racist hypotheses of course and none of this has anything to do with getting people back to work, so let's move on to the worst interpretation instead.

The worst interpretation is that, by "stock", Hassett is describing what he sees as cattle. Dumb things to be programmed, not people. I think this is what he meant. The "best" interpretation is best because at least in that mode the workers in question are at least still human, though undesirable. In this worst interpretation, the skin-shell of humanity has been shed and the workers are seen as merely the disposable labor of an alien species, ready to be replenished from an ever-growing chattel stock.

What the fark is wrong with these guys.

For the term, it's an economics term, though it might be a "newer" term (in the last 40 or so years).
https://www.nber.org/papers/w17487 might even have been coined in this paper. Dunno.

I do believe he was trying to sound like an economic-talkin' guy so Trump types could point out the expertise in the WH.

But when yer in government, yer in politics. It isn't just what you know or do, but how you sell it. That is an abysmal selling point. Lay people don't say things like human capital stock. "Workers" and "labor force", even if it's slightly imprecise, are what everyone wants to hear.
