@Cheetah9:I enjoy challenging myself to just how low I can get my electric bill each month without melting... (currently able to live quite comfortably at 82 with a fan or two on....a/c comes on maybe once a day:)

Well, here in Western PA, for me the energy stinginess is with winter heat. Last 5+ years I've had the thermostat at 54F and find it acceptable. There are health benefits too. Cold temps and other such stressors, like fasting, activate the body's brown fat and other survival mechanisms. If interested, do a search on Dutchman Wim Hof the Iceman for his regimen.

@Tickerguy Karl, thanks for this post. With your inspiration, like many others here I have been able to be debt free. Lifelong saver, so I will be able to survive for quite a while should I lose my job. They are sharpening the axes and I expect to hear something more definitive this week. In some ways I hope they do it. I'm disappointed that they have not rejected it outright.

Great reading all the posts. As a saver, I have felt alone and started to wonder if I should have just racked up huge amounts of debt like most people. Seems like they could take our 401k's ans banked money on a whim, especially when they usher in a pure digital currency. For now, we should be ok. Can handle some inflation.

@jcpenneyinla - thanks for the new mantra, stay true to the FU.

My wife was telling me tonight over dinner about someone she works with. He's had COVID, been jabbed twice and got another "booster" shot of the cocktail by claiming he didn't get the 2nd jab.

He is absolutely scared to death. My wife as a religious exemption and part of it is she can't come into the office but he doesn't know it. He's scared to death of coming into the office because someone might be unjabbed and will give him COVID again. She asked him how many masks he wears when he goes out and told her one. She told him that one isn't enough and he needed to wear at least 3. She asked him if he was going to get "another booster" and he said he would in a couple of months. He is considering quitting unless the company fires everyone that is unjabbed no matter if they got an exemption or not.

This is the kind of idiot we are up against. My wife said "well, between having COVID, 4 shots, and triple masking doesn't work, you just have bad luck". And yes, he did vote for Biden.

@Moconserv: Death seems extreme. I am convinced that having a bunch of power hungry nuts at the top of the tree is just the way empires work - every time!

Like killing animals for food, most people do not want to know what the people at the top really do. My main concern is that these people seem to have got this bug in their minds that it is a good thing to destroy the empire's ruling nation. This is somewhat of a departure from previous empires.

Maybe this is the result of the opportunity for world domination offered by technology - the Great Reset - or maybe something else. Regardless of the rationale, it seems to be their objective.

@ZK118: That's easily a half-million to 3/4 of a million in our area now, since the Infestation started.

Good chance of snow tomorrow; that might cause some of the Infestation to **** themselves a little, since the Coastals and Commiefornicans really don't know how to drive in freezing rain, ice, snow, etc. Those Tesla's are for **** in the cold, too.

I'm not sure what happened, but I let Karl know.

Here's a direct link to Google Drive

drive.google.com/file/d/1TQUiJkdhxeKFwmdWLVzU3jgs7LR0oSsr/view?usp=sharing

But here's the weird thing. The forum software here changes the link in the original post to something that Google doesn't like and gives an error message. Image attached.

Grasping at straws, I removed the "https:\\" from the post above thinking that the forum software might not change it, so give it a try to see if it makes any difference.

I tried searching Amherst for a link to the original post, but nothing turned up.

But I did find an eMail address at the end of the document.

@Ajkalian - The forum prevents "linkjacking" by following links and using what comes back as the TRUE URL. It should, of course, match what you put in, but Google doesn't because it depends on a unique session cookie YOU HAVE but nobody else (including the forum code) does.

So when the forum code goes to get it and compare it gets back a BS "oh no the cookie's gone" link and message and that's what it uses.

I'm contemplating changing the code to reject the post entirely if that happens, but the problem with doing that is that some "transparent" redirects of this form are completely harmless AND impossible to prevent from happening.

I'm aware of it, however..

Robert Barnes says that Intel is implementing a policy as follows: They (Intel) are not asking for any employees vaccination status and everyone in the company is strictly prohibited from asking for it and will NOT have any vaccine mandate.

Regarding Intel... 23 pages of barf. I wonder how much money they wasted and how many clueless lawyers and doctors it took to write that garbage. At least they don't appear to be "requiring" clot shots for now....

The country would be much better off if they just passed out Ivermectin pills to all employees and feed bags to the fatties in April 2020.

Under current circumstances this (Intel policy) appears to be one of the more reasonable and certainly most thorough I have read (scanned) or heard about for a large company especially released since the Biden "mandate" speech. Key phrase:

Went to the ophthalmologist yesterday for my semi-annual exam. He talked about growing up in Wisconsin, and had mentioned previously that his father had worked for American Motors. I thought Kenosha, WI was a depressed area after 2010 when Chrysler shut down what was left of the auto plant, but he said it's doing well. Other industries have come in, and population has actually grown, mostly people wanting to get the hell out of Illinois, the state line of which is just 5 miles to the South.

The only thing between Democrats and Republicans is Dems work overtime destroying small business. That came in when Morgan installed Woodrow Wilson.

As for boycotting business. I like baseball, they built an indoor stadium and pulled the game, from ATL. I doubt I will ever see a game there. They can take their money, from NAZI sympathizers.

I go to a couple, of bars, one to dance and hear music, the other for their food and live blues music, with no cover. The blues/food place posted a sign on the door you had to wear a mask, if you weren't sitting down, because the NAZI head of the Commissioners Court made the rule. Had they enforced that, I wouldn't have been back, but I think the Governor over-ruled them. The owner is or was a big jab fan.

Most people don't understand business. A business never makes a dime, until they cover their fixed and marginal costs. Margin can be fairly high. An extra ass in a seat, in a restaurant provides 50% to 70% marginal profit, of the ticket, provided other variable costs don't increase, like needing more staff. Most are usually slightly overstaffed, so a $20 ticket is worth $10 to $14 toward fixed costs, or profits, the only real variables being the food and energy used to cook the meal, plus napkins and other odds and ends.

Thus, if a business needs 150 customers, to show up each night, to break even, 149 puts them, in the hole. If margin, per customer is $15, that covers $2250 in fixed costs, which includes their basic staff, rent, utilities, depreciation and insurance. The later 2 are quite often missed, when looking at profits. If they average 200, that provides a margin, of $750, making a rough net of $250K a year. If the owner is also the head manager, that is his paycheck. 15% of those people stay home, instead of being a relaxed manager, he is a nervous manager, as $5K a week drops to $2K. A guy used to having $250K a year, probably isn't living on $100K.

There is more to this. If the guy has 2 restaurants, both providing $250K, in margin, he hires management, for 1 @ $100K and makes $400K. What happens, if both lose 15% of their business? $400K goes to $100K, because his fixed cost, on the second is $100K higher. His income falls to $100K, from $400K and an order, for toilet paper comes in. He is making zero, off his venture, the second restaurant and he is likely stuck in a lease and an installment plan, for the equipment. Lose 10 more customers, in each place, his net goes to zero, the mortgage on his home and his nice autos are in danger,

I don't know what multiple, of income a restaurant will bring, but lets say it is 5X. The man can go, from $2 million on paper to zero fast(woman, if you like). I have seen hot Mexican local chains do that quickly. All you need is a few bad experiences or another hot chain and poof.

All businesses work roughly along that formula, the variable margin being different, along with the fixed costs. That is why, no matter how price competitive one wishes to be, there is a limit. You see this in airlines. You might find a seat, on a plane really cheap, compared to the listed price, but the airline, if they aren't full, will take anything that provides a positive margin. The plane has to fly, because it has to be somewhere else tomorrow or later today. You see marked down fried chicken, in stores and you see deals on cruises or flights or any number of other things. If the ship is going to sail, having a group take 20% of the capacity, off their hands, in advance, allows them to set a price, for the remaining seats. It is hard to sail standby, because, of the preplanning involved, though I understand some people actually live on boats, in that fashion, because the margin beats nothing.

When Karl say you can buy things cheap, think, who needs it? Think of where you are going to put it, if it is equipment. How many airplanes might be taken out, of circulation, especially, if there is a slowdown, of any length, after an expansion? Restaurant equipment? Oil drilling equipment? Farm tractors and similar construction equipment? You might buy some nice stuff, for scrap prices, especially, if the new providers are holding fire sales themselves.

We are in a really ****ed time and the government and corporate NAZI's aren't doing anything to help. I'm in the business of owning and managing real estate and there is a massive bubble here. Things might work out, but what happens, if the jabs do go haywire and 10% of the population dies? I mean across the spectrum, not just old people and the sick, who were dying before. Everything goes haywire. Instead of a spiraling price bubble, suddenly there are 10% fewer occupants, 10% fewer customers, for everything. Missing key people. I just demonstrated what 15% would do, to a small business. 10% across the line would be devastating. What else it would do is reduce the need, for a lot of things, by 10%, destroying the capital goods industry, that makes things roll, in the first place.

What Karl paints, pretty much does this anyhow. We just had a 16 year old girl in all place, Wyoming, get arrested, for coming, to school maskless. She raided the big middle finger. I'm surprised anyone in Wyoming would put up with this nonsense and would fire the teachers, instead. If she will do it, why not the rest of us? It is time to get rid of this racket anyhow.

I have accumulated food and not optimistic, if I have to eat it. But, I'm not showing a passport or wearing a mask anywhere, unless it is life or death, as to the mask. I take dance lessons. If they go back to masks, I'm not going. I made that clear to them.

@Bluto, no clot shot required, but encouraged. Vax status is also requested but not mandated. That may changed depending on what OSDHA comes out with. Don't ask me how I know:) Been remote since March 1'2020 and hope the clot shot requirement will come with weekly testing. Otherwise I will be unemployed in this industry.

Aaron - I was just about to post about that!! I've started taking a daily baby aspirin to reduce covid clotting risk. I guess if too many people did that it could prove inconvenient. But it would be hard for them to take aspirin off the shelves, so they'd better give these new "guidelines" a lot of press.

I'm not a David Icke fan, but this video made sense based on what a US doctor on Stew Peters saw in various vaccine samples. She had described a self-assembling structure that formed on an open microscopic plate. She was shocked by this.

The above video seems to show these, or similar structures after days of growth.

As far as I remember, the classic transistor has three legs and joint structure. All rather strange.
