Solid point but I sort of disagree on the opportunity costs. We've thrown out so many hypotheticals I'm not sure exactly which one to address, but in the original one etats mentioned, you make choices and no matter what there's going to be a cost (like for instance maybe you have to choose between exercise and sunlight). Maybe your mom is really old and you miss one of her last years. It's different for everyone, but the point is there's a lot of implicit costs one could argue. For instance, for me, if i missed a year, I likely wouldn't be able to celebrate another giants/niners world championship with my friends, which would really suck. I could have 40 oz of freedom by myself, but what fun is that?

I think it may Just be a difference of perspective or opinion the cost of time or one year or my life is valuable to me - I'd me mad if I missed out. I've known enough people who did time and talked to them about it to be privy to the dangers of solitary confinement, enough such that I value my freedom tremendously. For me I'd sacrifice a fair bit of ev to be able to go outside once a week or to have a shorter duration of time, but that sort of goes against the spirit of the hypothetical. i also think people over estimate the effect of a large sum of money has on their happiness. im at work and dont have the citations on me but research seems to suggest that once youre "financially stable" that extra money after this threshold pretty much doesnt affect your happiness . off hand, i know that mean incomes have been rising in america for a long time and happiness (self reported) has been the same. Clark and zee made a good point also About needing the money up front and requiring the ability to invest. I'm in the minority with c vig I guess but there v little scenarios where I'm doing this.

The Pope apparently got word of this basement deal and decided he needed to get in on it while he was still in his prime.

it isnt really going on, she registered a gimmick to evade her perma and call out WVU for talking to girls on online chat and then she disappeared. since she avoided perma killa unlocked the thread.

Instead of an 18 year old for 18 points can he take three 6 year olds?

Cool (and long) article about the SEAL who shot bin laden, the mission, and life after service
awesome read. couple highlights since i dont expect too many people to read the whole thing.

Quote:
The group discussed what would happen if they were surrounded by Pakistani troops. We would surrender. The original plan was to have Vice-President Biden fly to Islamabad and negotiate our release with Pakistan's president.

This is hearsay, but I understand Obama said, Hell no. My guys are not surrendering. What do we need to rain hell on the Pakistani military? That was the one time in my life I was thinking, I am ****ing voting for this guy. I had a picture of him lying in bed at night, thinking, You're not ****ing with my guys. Like, he's thinking about us.


Quote:
Even in action, with all their high state of expertise and readiness, "we're normal people. We fall off ladders, land on the wrong roof, get bitten by dogs." In Iraq, a breacher was putting a charge on a door to blow it off its hinges when he mistakenly leaned against the doorbell. He quickly took off the charge and the target opened the door. We were like, "You rang the ****ing doorbell?!" Maybe we should try that more often, the Shooter thought to himself.

Quote:
One of the snipers who'd seen the disabled helo approached just before they went into the main building. He said, "Hey, dude, they've got an awesome mock-up of our helo in their yard." I said, "No, dude. They shot one of ours down." He said, "Okay, that makes more sense than the **** I was saying."
Quote:
I was about five guys back on the stairway when I saw the point man holding up. He'd seen Khalid, bin Laden's [twenty-three-year-old] son. I heard him whisper, "Khalid... come here..." in Arabic, then in Pashto. He used his name. That confused Khalid. He's probably thinking, "I just heard ****ty Arabic and ****ty Pashto. Who the **** is this?" He leaned out, armed with an AK, and he got blasted by the point man. That call-out was one of the best combat moves I've ever seen. Khalid had on a white T-shirt and, like, white pajama pants. He was the last line of security.
Quote:
I kept looking behind us, and there was still no one else there.

By then we realized we weren't getting more guys. We had to move, because bin Laden is now going to be grabbing some weapon because he's getting shot at. I had my hand on the point man's shoulder and squeezed, a signal to go. The two of us went up. On the third floor, he tackled the two women in the hallway right outside the first door on the right, moving them past it just enough. He thought he was going to absorb the blast of suicide vests; he was going to kill himself so I could get the shot. It was the most heroic thing I've ever seen.

I rolled past him into the room, just inside the doorway.

There was bin Laden standing there. He had his hands on a woman's shoulders, pushing her ahead, not exactly toward me but by me, in the direction of the hallway commotion. It was his youngest wife, Amal.

The SEALs had nightscopes, but it was coal-black for bin Laden and the other residents. He can hear but he can't see.

He looked confused. And way taller than I was expecting. He had a cap on and didn't appear to be hit. I can't tell you 100 percent, but he was standing and moving. He was holding her in front of him. Maybe as a shield, I don't know.

For me, it was a snapshot of a target ID, definitely him. Even in our kill houses where we train, there are targets with his face on them. This was repetition and muscle memory. That's him, boom, done.

I thought in that first instant how skinny he was, how tall and how short his beard was, all at once. He was wearing one of those white hats, but he had, like, an almost shaved head. Like a crew cut. I remember all that registering. I was amazed how tall he was, taller than all of us, and it didn't seem like he would be, because all those guys were always smaller than you think.

I'm just looking at him from right here [he moves his hand out from his face about ten inches]. He's got a gun on a shelf right there, the short AK he's famous for. And he's moving forward. I don't know if she's got a vest and she's being pushed to martyr them both. He's got a gun within reach. He's a threat. I need to get a head shot so he won't have a chance to clack himself off [blow himself up].

In that second, I shot him, two times in the forehead. Bap! Bap! The second time as he's going down. He crumpled onto the floor in front of his bed and I hit him again, Bap! same place. That time I used my EOTech red-dot holo sight. He was dead. Not moving. His tongue was out. I watched him take his last breaths, just a reflex breath.

And I remember as I watched him breathe out the last part of air, I thought: Is this the best thing I've ever done, or the worst thing I've ever done? This is real and that's him. Holy ****.

Everybody wanted him dead, but nobody wanted to say, Hey, you're going to kill this guy. It was just sort of understood that's what we wanted to do.

His forehead was gruesome. It was split open in the shape of a V. I could see his brains spilling out over his face. The American public doesn't want to know what that looks like.

Taking the model trains is an elite choice if you don't go with any of the health care options. Once those kids start popping out, you can just lock them in the model train warehouse in your basement.

If the Pope is resigning for health reasons, does that mean you're likely to have a dead guy on your hands within a few months if you don't get health care? Because that would make your little bunker smell really, really bad

I mean does it even matter who they pick? Whoever it is will be a lock to deny/cover up child rape, tell people in Africa not to use condoms, insist that being gay can be cured, and generally make the world a much worse place.
