    Not being a SNAP

    If you go ahead and synthesize busdriver’s point...

    Upcoming Boards

    Have you ever been invited to someone’s home for dinner? There is etiquette involved.

    Still applicable. It’s a normal practice, and helps show interest among other things. Also, he said Black Label...not Blue. Large $ difference.

    Grumpy MC Driver

    We all know numbers are the drivers and ACs must be made, and that that shitty CP will be made an AC despite non-progression.

    Active retirement in ARC

    The more you know.

    Active retirement in ARC

    For people whose ADSC expires less than two years after BRS opt-in, it’s an important distinction.

    Active retirement in ARC

    Exactly, if you really read into the BRS, the 40% only kicks in if you stay for 20. The only thing you can keep leaving early are what you put into the TSP, and matching still takes 2 years to be vested and keep it.

    It's Official, OCPs are Coming!

    That’s what it looks like next to an inside out old bag. Pretty noticeably resembles a canadian tuxedo, but yeah, half wool, half nomex stuff

    I’m letting someone else procure your boudoir fetish material.

    Valid. The denim-looking jumpsuit is half lightweight wool.

    Car loans and interest rates

    If I have $69k in non-retirement investments, I don’t want to pull any of it to buy even a $16.9k used car when the interest rates are less than historical inflation. It’s simple: keeping that $16.9k in investments accrues more money (crash notwithstanding); if you buy a $16.9k used car with that money instead, it still depreciates...meaning you lose more relative to keeping the money in investments and using a low interest loan. Your concept is a loser if you can execute a simple budget.

    What is next for the UPT-Next graduates?

    If you don’t set out a definitive measure of performance that asserts success...you can’t fail.
  13. Joke is on whoever tries to use it; damn thing maxes out at $69 anyway.
