8/21    I'm trying to negotiate rent renewal and my manager came
        back saying she can't do that due to Fair Housing Laws
        that states that if they adjust price for one person
        they need to adjust price for everyone else. Is this
        an actual law or some bullshit she just made up?
        \_ Probably bullshit.
        \_ LOL, BS. You can negotiate rental once the lease is up, unless wherever
           you live has some weird housing laws.

           The law prohibits setting different terms, conditions, etc...
        \_ I am a real estate broker. You can set different rents for different
           tenants. She is full of shit. The Fair Housing Law is about
           race, color, religion, sex, and so on. For example, you can't charge
           more to an Asian tenant than a white tenant based on race. However,
           you sure as hell can charge different rents to tenants if there is
           no discrimination.

10/18   Holy s*** I didn't know Atheists are banned from holding
        public office in the US:

7/25    Is there a polite way to tell a recruiter "too busy at the moment
        but keep me in mind for future stuff."  Or  "not in that field at
        this exact moment but am switching positions over the next few
        months for your role, keep me in mind" ?  Thx.
        \_ You know what, recruiters have thick skins.  You won't hurt
           their feelings.  Go ahead, try, you can't possibly get them down.

7/5     Job A is completely unrelated to Job B. Job A is my main job, and
        job B is what I do for fun but can't make a living out of [yet].
        Let's say job A provides me with 99% of my income. I just invested
        $20,000 for job B which currently makes only 1% of my income,
        but I hope to recuperate most of that in maybe 1-2 years. Is there
        any way deduct my tax rate that I make from job A using expenses

3/21    Holy crap is Bay Area real estate on fire right now. I keep
        getting outbid by hundreds of thousands of dollars on places.
        \_ does more home-owners mean fewer people will be renting,
           driving the demand for rental down?          -poor renter
           \_ I am kind of doubting that, but it might work.

12/21   Is it possible to use my Fastrak on a rental car?
        \_ Don't know if you're supposed to, but I think it works under normal
           situation (i.e. you're not speeding, your windshield doesn't block
           the signal, etc.)  The problem is that if the reception is bad and
           the toll tag doesn't beep, the booth will take a picture of your
           rental's license plate and fine the rental company because the
