How many cow nail technicians do you know? Exactly. They’re in high demand.

Kress wrote:We had our annual enrollment for health insurance, and speaking of burnt buns, this crap roasts mine a bit.

First, the cost for me is minimal, but God forbid I add my wife. "Employee plus spouse" is literally 6 times the cost of just "employee." What, are all spouses presumed to be sickly drains on the system? Why does it jump up so much?

Second, and more important, I do not have kids. That said, I have to adjust the above quote. There is no "employee plus spouse" option. It is just "employee" or "employee plus family." So, that is perhaps the reason for the 6x increase I was just bitching about. It doesn't assume that there may just be one other adult there. It just goes with "family" and adjusts the premium based upon the assumption that I have an entire litter of kids to go along with that other adult.

How does that make sense? Shouldn't it charge per person? A family with 2 kids, 1 kid, or even no kids at all, pays exactly the same as a family that has 8 kids of their own, plus adopts Bootz's entire clan, and then covers them all until age 25 because that's what Florida allows - twenty freaking five.

:fire:


They're ****ing you. I've never seen "employee + spouse" not offered. + family you get fucked on if you only have 1 or 2 kids. Pays off after that, though.

I like my vision add on as well. It’s the one thing I know I’ll use every single year and benefit from. I pay roughly $120 a year for it and get a “free” eye exam and 75% off new contacts or glasses every year (up to $300). The savings on my lenses always pay for the insurance so it’s like free eye exams

Similar plan at my company. The dental is pretty awesome too.

Zarniwoop wrote:Every year during orientation for incoming freshman, my school puts on a panel of three professors discussing a work of moral philosophy for the new students (I'm at an old fashioned liberal arts school). This year my fellow faculty members nominated me to be among the three. My job will be to discuss how the principles embedded in this book can be applied and interpreted through the lens of modern business and economy.

We are discussing the following book:

Image


Here is a brief synopsis from Wiki:

The Consolation of Philosophy was written in AD 523 during a one-year imprisonment Boethius served while awaiting trial – and eventual execution – for the alleged crime of treason under the Ostrogothic King Theodoric the Great. Boethius was at the very heights of power in Rome and was brought down by treachery. This experience inspired the text, which reflects on how evil can exist in a world governed by God (the problem of theodicy), and how happiness is still attainable amidst fickle fortune, while also considering the nature of happiness and God. It has been described as "by far the most interesting example of prison literature the world has ever seen."[4]

Boethius writes the book as a conversation between himself and Lady Philosophy. Lady Philosophy consoles Boethius by discussing the transitory nature of fame and wealth ("no man can ever truly be secure until he has been forsaken by Fortune"), and the ultimate superiority of things of the mind, which she calls the "one true good". She contends that happiness comes from within, and that virtue is all that one truly has, because it is not imperilled by the vicissitudes of fortune.

Boethius engages questions such as the nature of predestination and free will, why evil men often prosper and good men fall into ruin, human nature, virtue, and justice. He speaks about the nature of free will and determinism when he asks if God knows and sees all, or does man have free will. On human nature, Boethius says that humans are essentially good and only when they give in to “wickedness” do they “sink to the level of being an animal.” On justice, he says criminals are not to be abused, rather treated with sympathy and respect, using the analogy of doctor and patient to illustrate the ideal relationship between prosecutor and criminal.

In the Consolation, Boethius answered religious questions without reference to Christianity, relying solely on natural philosophy and the Classical Greek tradition. He believed in the correspondence between faith and reason. The truths found in Christianity would be no different from the truths found in philosophy.[5] In the words of Henry Chadwick, "If the Consolation contains nothing distinctively Christian, it is also relevant that it contains nothing specifically pagan either...[it] is a work written by a Platonist who is also a Christian."[6]


I have read this book probably five times throughout my life...it's a major driver of some of the elements of stoicism that I try to incorporate into my own philosophy of life. I'm excited to introduce the book to our students.


That's some pretty heavy ****, man. I'd probably enjoy it much better if I were high on some really good weed and, of course, it was an audiobook.

The wife and I saw some frozen turkeys sitting there in the grocery store last night, and it made me think: Do any of you roast a turkey outside of Thanksgiving? I don't mean just doing a breast or whatever, I mean full-on roast a turkey with some stuffing and taters and all that? (sub in deep fried turkey or whatever if you want, you get the idea)

We never do. We'll roast a whole chicken, have RARELY been known to cook a turkey breast, but never a turkey. Why is that?

No, never. The thing is - turkeys are ****ing big. How often are you feeding 12 people on a day that does not already dictate what the meal traditionally looks like?
