10/19/2010 10:53:29 AM We do have alternative fuels (wind, solar, geothermal, biofuels, etc). The problem is, they aren't cheap currently and likely will never be as cheap as oil was in the 20th century. The cheapest alternatives I guess are coal (dirty) or nuclear (NIMBY).
10/13/2010 6:07:36 PM What's all this garbage about grape kool-aid? It's called PURPLE DRINK. I want the purple drink! Sharpton thinking: Poser, when did you acquire a taste for fried chicken and collard greens, growing up in Hawaii and Indonesia. FWIW, I like corn bread, fried chicken meh, never had collard greens.
10/5/2010 8:24:50 PM My thoughts, in context of the current system 1) Points for posts/login - no more than 1-2 per day here. 1 per day for login would be fine by me. 2) Reviews - Would rather see no points or points awarded here by staff or approved review reviewers This could still be abused, but not as badly as the current system or a system where thumbs up (from 5 alt accounts) was used. 3) Purchases - I'd have this be the main area for earning points. I don't run a business, so what do I know?
10/2/2010 3:21:55 PM Correct. And while it's not likely they'll choose to brand their new active sports line, or whatever it was mentioned in the sale link, it's still possible. I'm just throwing out there, I'd rather see any colabs/lines they do in the future as Sierra, not Trusnow, which they could do as owner of the IP. I realize it's unlikely, but you never know. For the moment they're bringing Mike on and keeping Sierra employees. They still have a relationship with the colab manufacturers, so I guess it's still a possibility.

10/1/2010 10:53:44 PM Just keep the colabs going under the Sierra name    Beats the hell out of Trusnow on something.
10/1/2010 12:26:45 AM Seriously? There were links in the thread to bankruptcy filings and a link yesterday to the sale confirmation, subject to final court approval on Oct. 12. Not sure how that counts a speculation...
9/27/2010 8:25:08 AM River bluffs :P
9/23/2010 3:20:24 PM Nothing until the hearing date on the 27th?
9/22/2010 11:37:48 PM exastronaut, I was just goading you to get you to think about the scenario. Most people don't compare it to giving a friend, neighbor or stranger on the internet an interest free loan. Who knows, eventually it might end up like California last year where they didn't have cash flow to send refund checks and gave people IOUs. As far as the original topic, I'm not a fan of progressive taxes. My preference would be sales tax with a refund up to the poverty level (or some set value) similar to the fair tax ideas. In lieu of that a flat tax that kicked in over the poverty level. No exemptions, deductions or other monkeying social engineering into the tax code. Sales tax preferred, since that promotes savings, which promotes capital formation and industry/job creation.
9/22/2010 7:34:24 PM Wouldn't it be just as much security even earning .25% interest for you? Mind giving me an interest free $1500 loan for 9 mos every year?
9/22/2010 7:31:18 PM Here's the fun part about current federal revenues and expenditures (from Wikipedia) 2010 fiscal estimates: 2010 - Mandatory spending: $2.184 trillion (+15.6%)        Discretionary spending: $1.368 trillion (+13.1%) Estimated receipts for fiscal year 2010 are $2.381 trillion, an estimated decrease of 11% from 2009. The total deficit for fiscal year 2009 was $1.42 trillion, a $960 billion increase from the 2008 deficit. Mandatory spending now consumes more than all incoming revenues. We're financing all discretionary (including defense, transportation, education, etc.) on the credit card now. Great recipe for long-term success.
9/18/2010 9:48:49 PM Chipotle is better, but Qdoba works if that's the only thing around.
9/16/2010 5:29:55 PM Old data on market share, but found a list from 8/07 to 2/08. List looked to be just boards, not all hard and soft goods. Burton > 40% K2 10% or just over Ride, Rome (everyone below Rome < 5%) Rossignol, salomon, 5150, Nitro, Gnu (everyone else under 2%) Unless those numbers have changed significantly in the last couple of years, how does the market share argument have any merit? Basically, Brilars, you're saying Burton and K2 are the only quality brands since they are the only ones with greater than 10% share? One company dominates and the top 4 are 65-70% share with maybe 40 more companies between 0.x-5% share. Local shop guy told me Rome was #3 last year, but I can't find stats online to back that quickly, so ymmv.
9/8/2010 9:22:53 PM Seriously? If you're not deterred from crime by threat of going to jail for robbery/assault/murder, are you really worried about getting caught with a gun illegally?
9/8/2010 8:57:49 PM Unlike "many ppl", he made some big sacrifices to do what he really wanted and posted some amazing pictures of it on a forum he could be a posterboy for. How does that not warrant an unasked for 'attaboy' board as much as the "errday"(sic) logins for 15 minutes to try to win a freebie? Awesome pictures, Kyle. Would love to see what you have after this season.
