    IF she had had a M134, she could have turned these two thugs into mincemeat for pigeons to eat.

    You know she regrets leaving the house without the ultimate authority on safety - the M134.

    I dunno, she looks like a better canidate for an M249.

    It's standard issue for today's retirees.

    New Delhi i, Bombay are in a different class iof their own ( even more expensive ) but let me talk about a unknown city Chandigarh.

    Fixer uppers or tear down houses in 5400sq feet sell for $1.3M or more.

    http://chandigarhcity.olx.in/1-kanal-house-available-in-sec-28-genuine-buyer-only-contact-iid-697003365

    It has always been expensive to own a SFH house in New Delhi or Bombay ...SFH in a big city ( developing world ) is elite thing which most people have been stopped dreaming about from atleast more than 2 decades.

    The link you provided shows nothing.

    Wow, do you really have that much free time to play games?

    if you do this site may help you in your choice of graphics cards:

    http://www.videocardbenchmark.net

    I upgraded my older system a few weeks ago and selected a GeForce 750 TI based on the bang for the buck chart. I steered clear of ATI as their cards seem to have much greater power requirements and reports of loud cooling fans. So far my card has been dead quiet and goes great with my 120 hz overclocked single 2560x1440 korean knockoff monitor.

    I also put in a 250 gb Kingston SSD main drive along with a SATA 3 riser card. while the machine boots a LOT faster and is smoother to drive my benchmarks don't show much of a gain over a spinning drive. I did change the bios from IDE to AHCI with no difference. It may be that I am still on XP, or my older (2010) MB / I5 CPU. Upgrading those will be a harder sell though, especially since my rig is running well.

    that one study the number of women who ADMITTED they lied was 41%. Therefore the number of false rapes in that particular study is GREATER than 41%.

    Here is a link to the original study should anyone care to read it:

    https://ia600406.us.archive.org/1/items/FalseRapeAllegations/false-rape-allegations-archive.pdf

    You might also find this interesting:

    http://www.mediaradar.org/mcdowell_kanin_credible.php

    Some take home messages:

    From the Kanin study:

    Although very little information exists regarding the characteristics of the complainant, some data can be offered. These false complainants are all white, largely of lower socioeconomic background, and the majority were modestly educated. Only three complainants had any education beyond high school. The mean age of these women was 22. On the basis of the limited information available, these women could not be distinguished from those whose complaints were recorded as valid.

    From the McDowall interview regarding his Air Force study:

    ...the physical injuries of false victims are usually superficial minor cuts, scratches, or abrasions. Although they may appear to be extensive, they don't amount to much. The cuts and scratches virtually never cross the eyes, the lips, the nipples, or the vagina proper. You typically see a peculiar hatching or cross-hatching effect in the scratches. What happens here is that the false victim scratches herself but does not immediately see a welt. She thinks she must not have done it hard enough, so she does it again. She applies another scratch coming from a slightly different direction. By the time the welts began to appear, you get this hatching. You do not see that in legitimate rape cases. ...

    I can see that maybe there is some variation in the probability of false rapes - that poorly educated, politically conservative, morally rigid communities may see a much higher occurrence of false rape charges than more educated, politically liberal, morally flexible communities.

    If the Mormons can baptize them, there is no reason banks and mortgage companies can't write notes for them.

    Actual,y this sounds like a GREAT idea!

    Reverse mortgage each burial site with the proceeds going to the survivors and the term of the loan to be the average time for the worms to finish their work. At the end of the term the grave is resold by the bank at a huge markup

    Love it!

    Even better if the bank generates a traditional mortgage and forecloses on everyone at once. Mass evictions (exhumations) ensue and the entire site is converted to cozy basement apartments for the living.

    This would fly in the SFBA, I'm sure of it!

    Now, WTF was that? The last time a woman offered to snuggle up with me, overnight sharing the same bed, it was ---CLEAR---, what she really wanted me to do to her. It wasn't to play a teddy bear.

    today’s men frantically search for past glory … in purple pills for ED, Low-T, aging cosmetics, magic solutions to belly fat … playing fantasy football over a six-pack … yearn for the freedom of America’s 19th century Wild West … hero-worship icons like John Wayne … the good old days when old-guy paternalism ruled

    Wow, so its MEN who spend their latter years in a fruitless quest to regain their youth?

    Somehow I thought it was women pouring billions of dollars into cosmetics, into plastic surgery, into pharma, into hair treatments, and best of all, age inappropriate clothing (40 something women raiding their mid teen daughters wardrobe).

    Talk about projecting!

    If you are talking about C level execs and paper pushers working at STEM companies they don't count unless by some act of God they actually spend a significant portion of their days at the bench. They don't. I've worked with a few of these people in my day and I can tell you their eyes glaze over at the first hint of actual technology.... That is until their brains reset into buzzword capture mode.

    That was disingenuous reply, if you want to say that they are rare, then do so. But to marginalize people who are self starters, learners and self studied, as interlopers is over selling your self and our crappy education system.

    Disingenuous? Hardly. Most companies are staffed with people who never enter the lab yet work at a STEM company. I was merely pointing out these people do not count as having STEM careers. Pushing paper does not make you a scientist, technician, engineer or mathematician. Their careers are STEM dependent, but not STEM.

    Now if you want to weigh into the discussion with your own experience as a carpet layer who through sheer old fashioned gumption and power of will began a successful career as a highly sought after programmer (or meth cook) please do.

    Here's the thing ... real creative work, may or may not pay anything. Did any of Leonardo Da Vinci's flying machines ever come to fruition? No, Leo was a few centuries short of realizing his vision.

    I'm not so sure about that last part:

    In WWII several British POW's built a WORKING glider out of bedsheets, porridge, and castle floor boards as prisoners of war in Colditz castle, Germany's most "secure" prison.

    http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/naziprison/colditz.html

    The castle was already a few hundred years old by the time Leonardo was working on his flying contraptions. The prisoners were liberated on the eve of their escape attempt and the original glider was lost to history but an exact recreation made 65 years later with the same materials flew beautifully.

    http://www.radiotimes.com/news/2012-03-17/colditz-castle-glider-escape-plot-realised-more-than-65-years-after-the-war

    Leonardo had access to the same and better materials e.g. silk, spruce wood, purpose built fixtures. He also had MUCH better tools available and he was not under armed guard.

    If his flying contraptions didn't work it was because the designs were flawed. Seriously do you think THIS could ever fly?

    So far all I have heard from you people is of a shortage of exceptional (competent) programmers in the SFBA

    BTW, there is a shortage of exceptional prop traders in finance.

    And the reason for that is they're already millionaires and thus, demand more of the firm's bonuses than anyone else.

    If anything, you want to be that *unicorn*.

    Yeah. That skill is even harder to come by. Worse yet, some promising prop traders are false prophets who end up losing big.

    Fortunately, our firm has got one of them and thus, I'm externally grateful that he's kept our system going, whereas otherwise, we would have burnt out by year 3.

    Here's a classic trajectory of one, who's starting out as a full timer ...

    Year One, $70K-100K salary, light on the bonus.

    Then someone in the back office analyzes this person's work. Then year two,

    Year Two, $150K salary, $300K bonus

    Now, the partners are convinced ...

    Year Three, $250K salary, $500K-$1M bonus
    Year Four, $250K salary, $1M plus

    And then, you lose count of the decimal places.

    Great, a target for my kid to shoot for! What can I do to encourage my kid to head down that path?

    Also what's the fallback position should that first year not work out?
