Just for Fun

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

Sweet, I finally have a retirement plan. ;)
That includes mortgage debt. When you die, the bank still gets the money one way or another from your estate. If your have dependants living in your house, they either have to take over the mortgage or move out and sell.

With mortgage debt the average was only $13K. Again, it comes out of your estate before anyone else gets a cut. And much of that is often co-signed by a spouse of parent.

Banks aren't in the business of risking their own money.

I don't have mortgage debt and the retirement plan is for after I've burned through or given away the estate. Look out, Master Card, an old goat will be coming for you in an unpaid for Ferrari.

I need a trivia team name. It needs to be funny. Preferably with puns. If I wish best trivia team name tonight, I won't give you shit but instead leave you with the satisfaction of helping a random stranger on an internet forum in the corner of the internet.

GO!

Pick any number. Multiply it by two. Now add 12 to it. Divide it by 3. Now change it to 10. That’s how many seconds you just wasted.

Another cool trick: Write down your age. Now double it. Divide that number by two. That's how old you are. :o

United CEO says airline had to 're-accommodate' passenger, and the reaction was wild
2017 word of the year: re-accomodate
This response by .@united CEO sounds like a teenager response to an insult. "I'm gonna re-accomodate your face with my fist"
"...having to re-accommodate?" That's what we're calling it?

Dear #united, I had to "re-accommodate" someone once


Image
.@united will 're-accomodate' you next.

How did we get to a point where jackbooted, authoritarian abuse is this common in our society. @united

United Airlines just announced their new seating chart.

The #United incident could have been easily diffused if someone had offered the guy a Pepsi.
Has anyone seen it explained why they let the bloodied doctor back on the plane after dragging him off?

Critics mock United Airlines as CEO defends removing ‘belligerent’ passenger
#flythefriendlyskies my husband was on that flight. Screw you United!! @united
... The Chicago Police Department issued a statement Monday saying that the man “fell” and “struck an armrest, injuring his face.”

Lying cops, you dropped him then hauled him off unconscious rather than giving him immediate medical aid. Lawsuit coming.

... “This is like we reaccommodated El Chapo out of Mexico,” said (Jimmy) Kimmel in response to Munoz’s initial statement. “That is such sanitized, say-nothing, take-no-responsibility, corporate BS speak. I don’t know how the guy who sent that tweet didn’t vomit when he typed that out.”

“And by the way,” added Kimmel, “they could have almost certainly gotten more volunteers by offering more money or travel vouchers. Maybe 800 bucks wouldn’t do it, but you could have gone up to 1,000 or 5,000 or 100,000 — who cares, it’s not the passengers’ fault that you sold too many seats on your plane.”

United Airlines loses $900 million in market value as shares tumble - $100,000 would have still been cost effective.

Watch the 5 minute video, or at least the mock United ad that begins at 4:10.

And the award for worst United Airlines joke goes to...
Gov. Mike Huckabee
@GovMikeHuckabee

Breaking News! @united airlines will be renamed--will now be called UN-TIED and wont hog-tie passengers who have valid boarding pass
:-0?>
Mike Huckabee doing to comedy what those police did to that poor man on the United flight.
When I make a joke and think it might be bad, I remind myself that as long as Mike Huckabee is alive nobody else can be the worst at comedy
Mike Huckabee has transcended not being funny and is declaring a terrifying war against the very concept of comedy itself
Much better ones.

Here's how much airlines will pay you to give up your seat

... United has taken a costly public relations hit. And its stock lost $250 million in value on Tuesday.

A total of $1.15B now?

... Laura Begley Bloom and her family had a better experience last week. Delta paid them $11,000 not to fly.

Begley Bloom, her husband and her 4-year-old daughter had tickets to fly from New York to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on Friday. It was the third day of the Delta weather debacle, and thousands of unhappy passengers needed to be rebooked.

So Delta was offering top dollar to anyone who would agree to give up a seat.

When the gate agent offered $900, Begley Bloom's husband offered their three seats for $1,500 each. The agent countered with an offer of $1,350 apiece -- so the family left the airport with $4,050 in vouchers and a promise that they would be put on a flight on Saturday.

Two of them were feeling pretty good about things.

"I'm not going to lie to you, my daughter cried. She was upset not to see her grandparents and cousins," Begley Bloom, a travel editor who now runs a consulting business, told CNNMoney.

"But we weren't sure that flight was ever going to leave," she said. "There were people who were at the gate who had been sleeping on the floor for days, yelling and cursing. We just wanted to get her away from there."

When the family returned to the airport on Saturday, they found the flight overbooked once again, and gate agents looking for more volunteers. They left with $3,950 more and a promise that they would be put on a flight on Sunday.

But the third day was no better. They agreed to have their tickets refunded and accept an additional $1,000 per ticket....
Nice. I've taken 1 or 2 voluntary bumps - was in the hundreds of dollars, I can't remember exactly how much.
