    Careful, now! These recent posts run the risk of steering the Post Race into serious stuff, which is unfamiliar territory for this thread.

    Well I just got a notice that the DOL made some changes regarding the sale of annuities along with some changes to overtime, I was wanting to know if y'all had any insight on it because I haven't had time to keep up.

    Re: Post Race!

    The change to overtime was something discussed for at least a year, if you are talking about changing who gets it and who doesn't. It was to go into effect on Jan 1, I thought, and I never heard anything more about it. That one got a bit of buzz around here because we are pretty low paying. Some folks were thinking they might get overtime. That would have hosed me pretty good, at this point, for reasons that aren't worth bothering with...especially since the rule didn't apply to me, anyways.

    I believe that the issue with annuities was that 365 days in a year is just too inconvenient. Therefore, by act of Congress, the year is now 400 days long.

    Naturally, this solves all kinds of problems. It instantly saves a huge amount of money for businesses, since salaried employees are now earning less per day. Better still, this means that the average life span will now drop by several years, which greatly reduces insurance costs for the elderly, since there will be less of them. After all, with the retirement age remaining at 65, people will be working quite a bit longer to reach 65, since the new 65 would be the old 71. This doesn't just reduce medicare expenses, it greatly improves the position of companies regarding retirement packages, and makes Social Security instantly solvent for good.

    Having an even 400 day year has lots of other benefits, as well. For one thing, financial accounting becomes simpler. Fiscal quarters are now even 100 day periods. Unfortunately, Congress couldn't get it all right, so they neglected to remove two of the months, which means that fiscal quarters wander through the months. However, this is a boon for people who had birthdays around Christmas. Those folks often got shortchanged on their acquisition of loot, since presents tended to be combined. Now, Christmas and New Years will wander through the seasons. Christmas will sometimes be in the summer, other times in the winter.

    And for anybody who realizes that this doesn't add up...just remember where you are.

    HA! I moved your thread to General Developer, and notice that the first two threads in that forum are essentially the same. They could practically be merged.

    However, I would say that advertising in the Post Race about your thread on getting a job certainly shows the right attitude: You've got to cast a wide net to start with.

    What is crazier is that there has been a post in the post race every year since it started back in 2000. That is 17 years of crap!

    Fisher Cat in my backyard. Two days in a row. Looking like she might be nesting in the rocks along the brook. They look cute - just not friendly from what I hear!

    Coyotes all last summer - sure they will be back again in a few months...
