    What just happened to the ski girl?

    The fall didn't "disqualify" her, she missed a gate. She could technically get up and go back through the gates correctly, but once she went down/off course she was effectively out of the race anyway.

    Recommend a TV Series on Netflix

    Not Netflix, Hulu, but "Mr Inbetween" is excellent.

  6. Thirded. We're big softball fans around our house. Slapping seems to be falling by the wayside a little bit since they changed the in/out of the batter's box rules. Hotter bats are making it more of a power game as well.

    Books you are reading

    'The Reckoning' by David Halberstam. It's basically about the history of the auto industry in American and Japan - focused on Ford and Nissan - but with a lot of tangential historical asides about oil, Japanese reconstruction, etc. Fascinating stuff. In the hands of a lesser writer it could be pretty dry stuff but Halberstam makes it a page-turner. The only thing I'd read of his prior to this was 'The Education of a Coach'. Now I'm thinking I need to read a lot more of his books.

    Why are gas prices up $.70 a gallon in 2021 ???

    Gas pretty much always goes up in the spring/early summer due to refinery changeovers for seasonal fuel blend changes. Also price of oil has been going up with Saudi and Russia cutting production. Also, also the Texas power outage shut down a good portion of the country's refineries for a time.

    Biden set to raise nationwide gas tax by 89 cents

    Coal has been steadily declining as an electricity source for more than a decade and is now well out-paced by natural gas, which is much cheaper and much cleaner. Coal is dying because natural gas is killing it. We actually produce almost as much nuclear power as coal power at this point. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/22/U.S._annual_electricity_generation_by_energy_source_in_1970_through_2019_(49882975922).png

    PPP Loan

    They are interest-bearing at 1%. I assume that is the bank's cut. And even if you eventually get full forgiveness on the loan principle, the vig is running from day 1 so there will be some interest to be paid.

    PPP Loan

    We got $420k for a 60 person payroll. 60 ish employees x 160 hours per month = 9,600 man hours per month. 9,600 x 2.5 months = 24,000 total man hours. $420,000/24,000 = $17.50 per hour on average inclusive of all bennies. Not hard at all.

    PPP Loan

    I just received the proceeds of our second loan. Our bank has heard - not sure how officially - that funding will run out some time today.

    PPP Loan

    We were going to apply for the PPP for both entities regardless. It was just a matter of which bank or banks we were going to use.

    PPP Loan

    None called us, but we used two different banks for ours and it was funny how different their standards were. Our main bank wanted tax returns and some other stuff that wasn't required as we understood it, so we talked to one of the other banks we do business with and they were like "Oh no, we don't need any of that . Show us your W-3 and a statement for your employee health insurance and you are good to go." So I went back to our first bank with that and suddenly they didn't need near as much info. We threw the second bank a bone with our S-corp loan, though it was a lot smaller.

    PPP Loan

    We got $420k for our C-corp and $50k for our S-corp. It was a little unnerving how easy it was to get that kind of money.

    PPP Loan

    They might get their funds if their banker isn't clear on the rules or is counting on them when certifying the number. Where they could get into trouble is when it comes time for loan forgiveness and their "payroll" doesn't qualify.

    This is correct. https://www.sba.gov/sites/default/files/2020-04/PPP--IFRN FINAL_0.pdf
  23. Then he b!tched after the game about the Jones hit saying it should have called for a suspension, when Allen was the one leading with this head trying to get first down. It's like he's applying to be the third Harbaugh brother.

    One thing about posting here for a while, it's about impossible to see anything and honestly say "that's the stupidest thing I ever read" even when you have a solid contender like that link.

    Antonio Brown signs with Patriots

    Yeah, this makes sense. Bill had only been coaching in the NFL in one capacity or another for around 20 years at that point. I'm sure it's the first time he saw something wonky happen with the rules. Perfectly logical.
