"Today the American people have made their voices heard, and they have said, 'Things are finally as terrible as we're willing to tolerate," said Obama, addressing a crowd of unemployed, uninsured, and debt-ridden supporters. "To elect a black man, in this country, and at this time—these last eight years must have really broken you."

Added Obama, "It's a great day for our nation."

Subject:How tiered US taxes work
Security:Public

From someone on SA:

"I don't know the numbers off the top of my head, but lets say that tax levels are like this:
0-50k: 5%
50.1k-125k: 15%
125.1k-250k: 25%
250+:35%

Under such a system, you make 400,000. That money is taxed as:
(50,000 at 5%) + (75,000 at 15%) + (125,000 at 25%) + (150,000 at 35%)
2,500 + 11,250 + 31,250 + 52,500 = 97,500
97,500 is 24.375% of 400,000.

What's being discussed is a 3% increase in the top rate, which means that the extra 3% only applies to income above 250,000, so someone making 280,000 would only have an increase in taxes on the parts of their income above 250,000, or 30,000, in this case."

Just to quell misinformation - Obama's 3% increase isn't going to make someone who makes $251k a year poorer than someone who makes $249k. The 3% only goes to that last thousand.

Reasons one of my roommates is bad:

1. Uses my handsoap as shower soap
   1a. When I took that handsoap away, smells worse - maybe I should replace it
2. Soaks the bathroom floor after showering
3. Smells like tuna
4. Almost definitely killing his Betta fish, partially because of the tuna-like smell in his room
5. Wherever he goes, smells in the area become worse
   5a. Nearby flowers wilt and die
   5b. Food tastes worse if he has been near it
   5c. Smells somewhat like the inverted anus of a tunafish
6. Brings his nail clippers into the shower and clips toenails
   6a. I hope they actually go down the drain
7. Brushes his teeth in the shower
   7a. I knock it over sometimes and put it back - not on purpose
8. Might be drinking my milk
   8a. I don't know for sure
   8b. I like milk
9. Smokes... a lot of things... a lot
   9a. Gives me a headache when he's nearby after smoking
   9b. If he hasn't been smoking, gives me a headache anyway re:tuna smell
10. Falls asleep on the couch a lot studying or watching poker
   10a. Couch smells like tuna now - could be unrelated, unlikely
11. Leaves lights, TV on at all times, overnight

To be continued...

Day three of no internet, sans what I can steal from my roommate's port and random wireless.

Hungry. So hungry...

Subject:Presidency
Security:Public

I don't get off on the ego masturbation that most positions of power entail. I just don't... care that I'm a leader, or president, or whatever. I only care about making those that depend on me happy.

That said... president is a hella stressful job. But I'm sure it'd be a lot better if I knew what the job entailed before I took it (and by took it, I mean had it thrust onto me). Whee.

Perhaps I should've slept for more than six hours... but it's all done.

Bravo, JK Rowling. And thank you.

"Not enough money, offer more," it said in reply to my $50 offer. Bothersome. But I offered more, up to $75.

"Sorry, I don't haved," it said, sic. At the bottom, "sorry I didn't haved."

Sigh. I don't really get the joke. The passive search continues...

In other news, HP7 has been leaked. Be careful.

My beloved camera has been stolen for two weeks, as of tonight...

On the sign I left that said "Missing camera, reward" someone wrote "How much money?"

Does that mean they have it?

Today's Woot deal is looking nice right about now...

I thought the type where people were dropping chain letters were bad...

The comments for this video are... are horrible. Bolding added be me.

  • "nerd stupid fuck!! get a life. PS3 RULES!
  • "and dude...the response is not the same, the sixaxis is via bluetooth, more goodie, that piece of crap is via a chord... no free will to live lol...and i dont care if it rummbles or not."
  • --->Reply: "ya the cord is much much faster than the bluetooth
    and by the way PS3 are gay as hell its like a gient dildo so go shuve it up your ass cunt"
  • "Whats the big deal about having vibration feature? It'd make the battery run down faster, and its for girls. Why do u think some dildos have a vibration feature? =P"


Sigh.

Though I enjoy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uh1jB4hVJRg because of its "Dear fanboys, hulk out to this" thing. He's part of a review site, so I doubt they're all his. Some people get that it's a joke ("Imagine you have one cake, while I have three cakes. This is like that except you have no cakes while I have 3 ps3... also I have this cake"), but not everyone:
  • "He's wearing a cast for masterbating all day cause he has no girlfriend"
  • "Well done idiot, If i see you somewhere i am going to punch you SEVERAL(more than 3) to make sure you feel how stupid you are. " Note that he forgets to say times.
  • "and he has... NO girlfriend...what a prick"
  • "Lmoa this guy is so gay it sounds like he has a penis in his mouth this hole video(stupidest video ever)oh yea and i bet 5 bucks that cast on his hand is from carpel tunnel becuase he jerks off to meatspin"
  • "He is stupid, how could he enjoy three ps3's at same time. He need to have six hands to play three ps3's anyway. He must be a second life nerd too... "


Sigh.

I love hardcore men stories. Like, men so manly that even guys love them a little bit.



Most people know the shark punch story - a shark clamps onto a surfer, and the surfer punches it until the shark leaves. Hardcore.

Today's new story: Father Wrestles Leopard After It Hops Through Bedroom Window. He was protecting his daughter and pet cat. Hard. Core. This man is a BAMF.

Any more awesomely manly stories?
