    Wait - so you shoot to kill, but never say you shoot to kill? And never say you shoot the air, or the ground, or you are "brandishing" the gun - so what exactly do you say?

    Granted I never used Windows 8. My Surface Pro came with 8.1, and it came with a pdf manual a couple hundred pages long. I highly recommend any 8 virgins (or 9 virgins I would imagine) to look...

    You can "usually" bet on your tax bracket being lower when you retire than you are now, hence paying less tax if you defer till you retire.

    I myself never understand why so many have grievance over Windows 8. Sure, it is a huge difference from Windows 7, and the transition isn't intuitive, but there was quite a bit of difference from XP...

    That is why I'm not convinced that box stalls are the best for trailering. If you ever had experience riding in a bus while standing, you know that you quite appreciate to have something to lean and...

    It has nothing to do with "protection" of the women. There have been some studies showing that more issues are caused by an office shared by a male and a female. Now if it were a "group" like three...

    My understanding is that big payout is usually from sponsor or donation, not from class fees, and since dressage is not really a big speculator sport, fewer sponsor is in the sport, hence less payout.

    Here is what I remember, but you need to talk to your HR to double check.

    1. You can contribute as much as you want, 100% if you wish, but only 15% of your contribution is tax deferred. There is...

    I myself will not recommend you taking anything out of IRA. Remember for every dollar you take off from that account, it is not there to generate income for you. Assuming your IRA performs poorly, in...

    $2800 is minimum payments on credit cards? Holy Smoke. That is going to kill you.

    I assume you own your house? Refinance your house to pay off the credit cards, and then you just make your monthly...

    It sounds like you have higher standard for yourself than your colleagues, and greater work ethic than the culture of your work. You constantly feel frustrated and perhaps failure because you must...

    They tend to get looser once you get into the water, so if you are between sizes, get the smaller ones. You don't want a loose swimming suit in the water...

    Just reformat your hard drive after you move all files to your new computer, if you want to sell the part. If you do delete, files can still be recovered. Format? They are gone. That way, at least...

    So.... capital punishment is barbaric, and locking them up is cruel, which, is also barbaric. Would you like to give them a nice view by ocean side? Would that be humane enough? Now, if "you" are...
