    Did my taxes this weekend. I knew I'd taken a hit over last year because of the cutbacks the company made to our hours during the first part of this Covid nonsense, but I didn't realize quite how much until I compared my W2 with last year's. Ended up making nearly $12k less this year than in 2019. Amazing what going from 50 hours a week to 39 for a couple of months will do to you :laugh: :pout: :frusty:

    Fortunately I was able to make some of it up with my 'property services' side gig, but still...

    Is it possible? Sure. I just dont think it will ever happen. In his career, he is 50% of the time going to the SB. 70% of the time going to the Conference championship game. If he wins this SB he will have .700 winning % it.

    Ehh...
    He's thrown some questionable balls over the years. Like any QB, he's not going to be 100% 100% of the time.

    Edit: Like his performance in the 2nd half yesterday. When the ball bounces off of a receiver's hands and into a defender's, is it Brady's fault? But that first pick, where he just tossed it up into the air, I don't know what that was. All Brady.

    Brady is great and all, but it's the Tampa Bay defense that won that game. He threw some real strikes yesterday but he also threw some whaleshit downfield as well.

    new england driving is the reason i don't use my signal anymore

    Edit: For lane changes i don't signal. I'm not an animal that just turns randomly without warning

    Yeah but we can't count RI as normal even for New England. Getting to and from work is 4 miles and I stay in East Providence....My brakes get a workout.

    I didn’t watch so I can speak to that, but last season all I heard when I watched is how his receivers sucked, I am not saying he is bad, cause he is dam good.

    hah, yeah using a signal in mass is a dangerous game. That's just aiding the enemy.

    I will say - one good thing about RI, if you use a signal, I don't see the shenanigans and games that mass plays of people blocking you. People actually do just leave the gap there. BUT few and far between use their signal.

    If it was easier to pull the footage I would be able to pull at least 5 good clips of just utter shit driving every week, just going to and from work. This morning I got shunted onto the shoulder from a nimrod not checking their blind spot on a lane change, had someone behind me tailgate to the level I couldn't see their hood (going 30, means they were basically riding under my rear bumper), and the van behind me turned left in front of the car going straight and almost got t boned.

    ....Like I said, 4 miles, and usually only about 10 minutes. And this was a quiet morning! I've never driven anywhere worse, truly. I would prefer Boston and DC to Providence!




    You ever get into a house? I was on a not-so-voluntary break from TW :ballchain:

    Not sure that works in MA... You can only do so much in MA without a license. I'd guess VT is very different and actually lets people do work on their own homes. Novel idea, right?

    i think it's town by town, but north attleboro told me that essentially i have no recourse if someone isn't licensed, or my gc hires a sub that isn't licensed if i pull the permit
