      Sounds to me like having to pay back a month's pay is great incentive to keep people from jumping ship for 2 years after they take that sabbatical. No different from having terms in a signing bonus...

      Errr... Google bought Waze. Google Maps uses Waze user input as part of their traffic reporting. I use both. Waze is way better at picking up a traffic jam that just happened in real time. ...

      I haven't seen any oil consumption problems reported with 2015 Outbacks on the Outback Forum. All Outbacks now have timing chains. The CVT has been around since the 4th generation. There's no...

      If you think you have risk of chemical contamination, then yeah, a reverse osmosis system is worth it. Beware that it consumes a crap-load of water while doing it's reverse osmosis thing.

      Killington got completely shut out last night. We're getting the wrap-around snow now. It will accumulate during the day but won't be the 12-18" predicted yesterday. A classic over-hyped...

      I feel the need to point out that we're all wasting some of our potential by hanging out on internet message boards rehashing income stratification arguments over and over. :P

      I think that an affluent black family moving into an affluent neighborhood is going to draw some behind-their-backs prejudice until they meet their neighbors and turn out to speak newscaster English...

      I don't think race & color has as much to do with it as socioeconomic status. Engaged, educated, affluent people tend to hang out with other engaged, educated, affluent people. Real estate prices...

      The NWS in Burlington just bumped it back to 14-18". Snow.forecast.com has a similar 24-hour total. It finally is overcast but nary a flake yet.

      I didn't prepare at all. Why would I need to? Vermont understands snow removal. I-91, I-89, and any state highway will be plowed, sanded, and salted to mostly black roads 12 hours after the last...

      Here's an example of why we're seeing such huge income stratification. The phone company as a monopoly never cared much about employee wages and benefits. Semi-morons could get an entry level job...

      Interesting.

      I had exposure to modern physics in college physics courses. My take-away from that was that for typical things in my life, the speeds were so slow that I could safely always...

      The cost of living, excluding housing, isn't all that much different in California than anywhere else for the working class. I don't see that California housing costs would be any different under a...
