Never come to Toronto. Unbelievable how bad the roads are here. Between my place and the liquor store there are 6 potholes large enough to be unavoidable -- and this is a five minute drive on major streets.

Went for a drive in an unfamiliar part of town the other day and had to slam on the brakes because at the last second I noticed an enormous chunk missing. Just like a 2 inch deep hole in the middle of a 60km/h road

Half the roads near me are adopted by the local pot shops so they're generally in decent condition or are in the process of becoming fixed.

I think Indy is worse. Until they patched last week we had at least that many potholes within half a mile in all directions from our house.

And the one I hit last night was about 4ftx6ft wide and 4-6 inches deep in the middle of a 64.3738km/h road. I sadly didn't see it until too late because night-time and rain.

i have 2 repaving jobs that are stuck in design hell because the governing body of the roadway continually updates their design manual and requires all jobs in design to abide by that. both are going on 4+ years of design and each of multiple modifications to the contract for more $/time to address the design changes necessary, especially because both continue to modify design standards to a point that causes jobs to need right of way, which is minimum an 18 month process from start to finish. one of these jobs should have been done design in 2017, anticipated end design date is 2021 now.

tldr; sometime governing bodies can't get out of their own way.

Is this like karyoke but you dont get the sound track and you need to strum it yourself? (In b4 strum it yourself again).

Not making fun, hitting google next for info.
Only like 4th time I've ever gone so I'm not super familiar with it, but gist:

- a week before they email songs for a common songbook that will be played that night (so you can practice them beforehand)
- typically a leader or two on stage up front leading the whole group thru; everyone strums and sings; I have like a 2 note singing voice range and every song is way out of my key, so I just murmur
- this time the stage had a bass uke and drummer (I would have preferred not as they were both meh and didn't keep great time); also had a person fiddle on some songs (which I did enjoy)
- you literally can't hear yourself and I'm fairly certain you could strum along to a totally different song (which my wife almost does accidentally as she always seems to be a chord behind/ahead) and it wouldn't make a dent
- if I was to guess, I would say there was 75 people there (maybe more?); unfortunately my wife sat directly beside the know-it-all who has absolutely no self awareness and talked my wife's ear off about music theory even though it was very clear my wife was at the stage that simply fingering a G chord within 10 seconds is a triumph

I guess one of the benefits of getting older is your give-a-****s is reduced drastically, as he sucked terribly and yet he and no one else cared and a good time was had by all. In a way I was super jelly of this cuz even though I would have done a much better job there is 0% chance I'm getting on stage in front of people.

I never watched that movie regarding allowing everything-and-anything on one day (Purge or something?), but maybe along those lines once-a-year all banned accounts should be unbanned for just one day?

Would you give up one of your pinky fingers (magically/surgically/no pain) for $30,000? Your choice of pinky...

I think I would.

(and maybe for a decent amount less..?)

pinky finger costs 7 figures.

all other fingers are more.

thumbs would be exceptionally more

pinky toe would be the cheapest. still probably wouldn't do it for less than 6 figures though

There is a toxin that will make you miserably sick for 24 hours. After that you will be fine.

An eccentric billionaire will pay you $10,000,000 on the spot if you genuinely intend to drink the toxin in 24 hours.

He is totally indifferent to whether you actually drink it. If you back out of drinking it you will not have cheated in any way and nobody will care.

So, if you get the money, you will be standing there with the cash and zero incentive to drink the toxin.

How do you get the money?

I think I would consider selling my left pinky at around $250k. It all depends where you are in life though. At 16 I probably would have snap taken $50k.

Heh, its funny you asked this, I'm in the middle of warren buffets annual report and he's got me so fired up about valuations and aapl was (and still is) a screaming buy to me.

But no, I totally exited the market last year (dont ever do this). Now that the federal reserve has backstepped on literally everything they said was concrete 3 months ago, I might re-enter. Probably not though, besides lyft and uber, which are both total crapshot gambles.

*Disclaimer: I have no idea what I'm doing and could very well be a 16 year old working at wendy's

Sure - I can handle miserable sickness for 24 hours. I will 'genuinely intend to drink the toxin'. Pay me. And then I prob decide to dump it..?

Pretty sure there's a more clever response that my brain can't find at the moment...

The main hump to get over is that, if you know you will probably not drink the toxin, you don't genuinely intend to drink it. And it seems like it will never make sense to drink it.
