    To pile on a bit. Some here have been involved in industry standards. EC on the C standard and others I think. I got to be on an industry group trying to standardize transactions between "Property and Casualty Independent Insurance...

    So you and I come to different conclusions at time but we try and live in the real world with real people who vote their emotions and not facts. My daughter has a degree in accounting and at 6 years...

    Ya think? I grew up in the middle of the big mass. I didn't really think about it till in my 20s or there bouts. See my other comment about Paducah/Lone Oak....

    Humidity 75-98% for most of the summer. https://www.google.com/maps/place/Paducah,+KY/@36.928673,-88.6720654,9z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x887a1060d12f85c3:0x1dc24c50850cb925!8m2!3d37.0833893!4d-88.6000478 I grew up just south of Paducah. Lone Oak if it shows. While not like being next to lake Erie zoom out a bit and notice water on 3 sides. A lot....

    Yep. I remember when I was in my teens, and my mother being bemused to realize that Philly was around the same parallel as Cadiz, in Spain, and near Tel Aviv.... Given the spin direction of the planet, apparently it...

    Much of it is reconstituted granite Quartz countertops are the current thing in new installs. In the US. https://www.thisoldhouse.com/kitchens/21018440/all-about-quartz-countertops Ground up rock glued back together and looks mostly natural. Plus it doesn't absorb liquids the way those made of slabs...

    Toronto in summer hits 35 celsius during the daytime, which is definitely "turn on the a/c" weather. [grin] Some of us think this is a nice summer day. As long as the humidity isn't too high. My wife is NOT...

    In my case, that would be for six residencies and four commercial properties on the ground floor and basement levels. And what about places like Chicago, NYC, London, Tokyo, etc...?...

    It's not just about "mill owners", it's about a bunch of non-substitutable processes that can't be shut down and are essential to keeping civilization going. Yep....

    Actually, the thing that killed the high streets was (subsidised) out of town supermarkets and shopping malls; that is also a major factor in increasing car dependency and usage. The few, feeble attempts to rein them in have all been...

    To me this is an example of why having different tax rates for different "kinds" of income doesn't so much reward people into making decisions about their income so much as giving the rich an huge incentive to re-classify their...

    Las Vegas How do people react to the idea that they might have to leave? Do you get called a liar, stupid, brainwashed. Do they start drawing up plans? Or do they just ignore it and hope the problem goes...

    The lake is Harris Lake. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HarrisLake(NewHill,North_Carolina) No mountains anywhere in sight. It isn't that deep. It was created for the Shearon Harris Power Plant. Only 1 of 4 reactors was built. But it is NOT a static pond. Water flows...

    That only works in major major cities with dense population. And even then it seems to need to be subsidized. NYC is mostly that way with midnight to dawn being short of many trains. But even then when I'm in...

    You might at the other end. :) Or not. My point was getting between those cities by rail has reasonable timelines, times of departure/arrival, and the fares are not too bad. But one thing I wanted/want to do in France...

    Not that I would recommend this particular trip unless you are in fact doing a "Visit major european cities" whistle stop vacation. Too much of a detour. Yes. Every time I've looked at a possible trip going across Europe via...

    IIRC the wood pellets come from the US southern states where there's a lot more sunshine per annum than the Frozen North. They're processed and shipped via diesel-burning train to, I think New Orleans where they get trans-shipped onto bunker-fuel...

    many parents are vocally concerned about child care first, athletics second, and learning a distant third. Statistically the sample is poor for various reasons but... On FB I've noticed that of all the folks I knew growing up (before college)...

    Feeding on your last sentence, I was referring to the well off middle class or above who show up on the news and at local government (school boards included) meetings ranting about schools must be open. They come off as...

    Work from home. Better or worse? It all depends. On what your works is and your personality. I have a client who is currently at 13 people. They shut down their office in March 2020. And decided to give up...

    I've come to the conclusion that many of these parents screaming about their kids needing to be in school are implanting their feelings on their kids. Which is a normal course of events. But this tends to turn the kids...

    The US railroad system for passengers. Various advocates want: High speed rail between major cities to allow them to replace air travel. Affordable (almost free) transport for lower income people to be able to travel. Lots more stops so more...
