  taxes 2015
tax rate last year was 25%. historically, that's pretty middle of the road. so tax independence day for us was march 24th. which seems a bit weird. cause most of our income came from working. as opposed to from investing. whatever. course that doesn't count the employer's contribution to social security nor medicare. if you count those the rate gets kicked up to 28%. and the date to april 12th. which is still 2 weeks before everyone else. so how does that compare to my proposed progressive wealth tax? median net worth is still around $100k. so 1% of everything over that. and an additional 1% of everything over 10 times that. and so on. we paid in the real world taxes more that 2x what we would have paid in the timmertopia system. and we didn't get our $24k tax credit. sigh. timmer for president.

  origin's blues
i have seen way way too many "news" articles comparing space x and blue origin. they're both launching rockets into space then landing them upright. same thing right? RIGHT!? blue origin is ahead. how is space x going to respond? dun dun dun. gah. gag me with a spoon. a big wooden spoon that's been left outside for weeks. okay. let me explain the difference. imagine you're at a circus. and there's a dude jumping up and down on the trampoline. boing. boing. boing. he goes pretty high. and the big finish, he lands on the ground from an impressive height. ooo! ahhh! i couldn't do it. i'm impressed. i really am. okay, now. way way over there is a cannon. a guy gets shot out of it. he goes soaring across the big top. twice as high as the first guy. and much much faster. wait, this guy's holding another cannon. which he fires while screaming through the air. bull's eye! wow! then he does a flip and lands on his feet way way way over there on the far opposite side of the big top. on a raft. floating in the ocean. oh. my. god. crowd goes crazy. okay so back to the guy on the trampoline. his trick was admittedly impressive. but man, to compare the two exposes a level of ignorance or dishonesty that just makes me want to hit people. in the face. repeatedly.

so i finally farmed enough tokens to true resurrect my characters. woo hooty! it went slowly at first. cause i had nothing close to epic loot. had to run devil's assault on casual. eventually though i got enough levels and loot to run it on normal. and an update came along. prior to the update i'd run it with one of my kids and we'd get about 11 tokens per run. after the update, running it by myself i'd get only 5 ish. usually. i got 11 once when soloing. hrm. i have some theories about the criteria for not getting the bonus tokens: - one character gets all of the kills. - the piking characters are marked as afk. - there's only one person in the room with the fights. unfortunately i won't be able to test any of those theories. cause my characters are all now 2nd level. woo hooty! noobs again. which is actually my favorite part of the game.
 
most every day i wander the corridors of my mind and open a door at random.
