    What is the reason you are specifically after these three celebrity clients as opposed to their three non-famous neighbors?
  2. Guilherme, I did not set up any kind of straw...

    Guilherme, I did not set up any kind of straw man.

    I explained the difference between "median" and "average."

    Since the article was about median income and not real estate it seemed pertinent.
  3. The author of the article you are citing to wrote...

    The author of the article you are citing to wrote "median" instead of "average" FOR A REASON. The article was not talking about the average. It was talking about the median. Two totally different...

    No, it is decidedly NOT semantics.

    If you are so unattuned to the difference between "median" and "average" that you feel like they can just be used interchangeably and don't even notice the...
  5. ^Absolutely. I held it constant in the...

    ^Absolutely.

    I held it constant in the hypothetical because it makes it easier to understand the difference between "average" and "median."

    If Person 6 moves in with a billion dollars, the...

    Also, please change your thread title from "Significant decline of AVERAGE net worth in the past 10 years" to "Significant decline of MEDIAN net worth in the past 10 years."

    For reasons discussed...

    Let me just do out the math:

    AVERAGE is all the numbers in a population added up, and then divided by how many numbers there are in a population.

    MEDIAN is the number in the very middle of a...

    This is the mathematical result of increased income inequality.

    The gains that the 1% have been making have to come from somewhere...

    ...and that somewhere would be "the median household" that...

    Oh wow, that was completely unintentional. I generally COTH from my phone and it must have done that when I edited the first reply.

    Sorry.

    I would delete it but it seems unfair to delete it and...

    Where did I say anything twice??

    And insisting on drawing incorrect inferences from my post does not mean that is what I said.

    If someone is having trouble getting their horse to still say yes...

    I can't stop listening to Ed Sheeran.

    Put her on a walk circle, bend in, and legyield out.

    If she tries to get faster instead of move over, tell her, "No, that's not the right answer, move OVER but NO QUICKER."

    She will probably...

    Great, when you find the part of my post where I say that being able to trailer load a horse makes everyone a grand prix rider, let me know.

    Being able to teach a horse to self load DOES indicate...

    #1. Remember it was not the horse's idea to get up and go to a horse show and he does not owe you 8 jumps. Rather than having expectations of the horse have expectations of yourself to give him a...

    Expect them to get it right on the first try at home.

    ETA:
    This repetition was they unintentional by product of COTHing by phone.
    I would delete it, but that would make Nicklelodian look crazy...
  16. Expect them to get it right on the first try at...

    Expect them to get it right on the first try at home.

    It doesn't matter if you are jumping a full show courses at home; no matter what you are jumping, cultivate the expectation that sh*t gets...

    Why would you punish this behavior by backing up???

    The heart of the problem is a refusal to move forward towards scary things. So what purpose does getting big at the front of the horse and...

    Spinoff- Great Dates

    So we've hashed out the dating horror stories, but surely COTHers have been on some good dates too?

    One of my more memorable ones happened with a Pakistani guy who revealed on date one that he had...

    It depends on the culture of the particular site and your location. If you were in the NYC area on okc guaranteed this would not be an issue.

    There is nothing wrong with sending a quick note...

    Not really date related, but in law school we had a student lounge where people could watch TV or put in a movie.

    One day I was sitting there when some of the foreign LLM students came in and...

    If anxiety is an issue, finish off your canters with a lead change.
    When you're ready to be done cantering, come up the diagonal, do a change, coast 6 strides, and then walk on the buckle with a...

    All of mine do the hunters and dressage.

    I wouldn't say I "routinely" jump them, since it can be many months before there is a horse show or clinic that I am interested in attending which prompts...

    I started mine as a late 3yo (in November). For many months we did 10-15 minutes of ring work WTC to start the ride and then went on gradually lengthening trail rides at the walk.

    While I was doing my LLM in Germany I went out with a med student I had met at a party. He was a perfectly nice and cute guy, but at one point he said:

    You are not crazy in the slightest.

    My hunter did his baby year mostly trail riding, has dressage scores to 64% at Third (which could have been higher but he was stuck with me for a pilot), and is...
