On Paying For Ink And Intimacy

@forget it i quit "And any post work (touchups, etc) should be included as part of the fee being paid." I'm talking about wedding photography here, not implying anything about tattoo artists.

On The Subtle Economics of Facebook, Google, Firefox, and Chrome

I deleted Facebook from my phone and I now enjoy 300% more MOFO time. Seriously it's a time suck and serves no purpose except to buy Zuckerberg et al taller privacy fences.

On Could You Come Up With $700 By Midnight?

On Chatting About Real Estate Month, Money Management, and That Damn Dress

I really wish we had at least a semester of some kind of "Life Skills" class in high school. Instead, we got Home Ec and woodshop/metal shop in 7th and 8th grade, and while I learned a lot of practical skills, the home finance type stuff fell on deaf ears and wouldn't even be practiced until at least several years later.

You know how in Office Space, they rig the system to give them all the little half pennies that no cares about? These guys have pretty much figured out how to get people to GIVE them the half pennies.
