#3720630 I Called In Sick Today

Posted Napa Lite on 21 November 2015 - 07:21 AM

There's a bar in town called the filling station that I'm pretty sure I'm not welcome at after our department Christmas party ended there and we got a little out of hand.

Did about five hours of white knuckle driving through the first snow storm of the season to get up to Minneapolis. Actually had to swerve my way through a 3 car accident that I watched happen like I was a nascar driver or some shit. Saw 20+ cars in the ditch.

Had a really late dinner with my college friends and invited one of my really good middle/high school friends that I hadn't seen in 10+ years out with us. My friends I'm staying with called it an early night but me and the other three went to a bar and then another bar and closed the place down. I think I'm still drunk. Had a lot of fun.

It's actually highly intuitive and is how most intelligent adults eventually figure out how to do mental math except we're fast tracking children and teaching them to think about how math works as opposed to just memorizing formulas and theorems.

I had the privilege of dating a 10.
If was very brief, she was just curious and eventually realized what a terrible mistake she had made (then just stopped calling) but the ego stroke of walking around with one of those among your peer group is worth more than a Patek.

So a 6?

I think he was just saying that the minimum wage hikes are only going to make the problem worse, not that they caused what we now face. for sure, min wages increasing will bring more inflation as they kick in over the next few years. I don't see it as a good or bad thing, just a logical Econ 101 concept.

The problem with Econ 101 is that it was written when capital formations were completely different than they are now.
It used to be true, for example, that expanding the wage base would exert inflationary pressures on (everything) because the wage base was one of the largest economic arbiters of capital flowage we had. That's still true in theory but in reality, the economic metabolism exerted by consumer staples spending for the bottom half of the population is chickenshit compared to basically everything else that moves the needle.

Listening to retarded conservative assholes and their ignorant talking-points about shit they fundamentally don't understand to rationalize poverty program austerity or opposing something like minimum wage growth (in an economy where wealth stratification is becoming one of our major issues) is a major peeve, eclipsed only by listening to retarded liberal assholes who believe we can print money and spend and there is never any consequence because we can always print more and spend more.

You're not joking. These minimum wage hikes are going to kill poor people. They're going to do the exact opposite of what people expect, and it's already happening quickly. The 10 pound rolls of 80% ground beef at Sam's are up to almost 35 bucks. That's a solid 8 dollars higher than it was just last Christmas.

Learn how capital flows.
Blaming wage hikes on inflating food prices is like farting at the landfill and saying that's what caused the terrible smell. You're in the shallowest end of the 'conservative dumbass' pool with that narrative. Sub FOX News.

Also; while cost basis is contractually tied to futures contracts, bear in mind that food producers are hedged out with fin product derivatives that may cut them in either direction YEARS DOWN THE LINE, not to mention 'market will bear' pricing. Certain airlines were eating miles and miles of dick in 2009 when oil bought it and they were still locked in at $3.75.

In short, corn can go down while Fritos go up and there are dozens and dozens of factors that can drive food price inflation even in the face of deflationary pressures on the derivative commodities.
When prices rise on beef and potato chips, it isn't an instantaneous response to a modest wage hike at the lowest levels. If you can ever can figure out a way to influence inflation that quickly, enjoy your Nobel Prize for econ.

Rarely do I laugh at my own jokes, but I was stifling my giggles as I formulated and typed the above joke. Guess that means it's bedtime

Anyone else confused about the number of shits Napa can give re: his birthday?

It occurred to me while re-reading the shake stuff that the annual insurance premium on his "house" is equal to about 3 new button down shirts. Priorities I guess.

Also, I know shake complains about his salary all the time but I thought he had no housing costs. Place is paid for, right? Housing is generally such a large percent of ones take home pay...maybe you need to look at where your money is going? You're like the anti-strat it seems. We need to find a happy medium for you two.
