I keep seeing these commercials for online courses from "University of Maryland University College".

Am I the only one who wouldn't want to take classes from someplace that uses the same word twice and a 3rd that means the same as the one they repeated?

If they are smart enough to teach they should be smart enough to realize how bad that sounds.

He was caught in a scrum. Eaten by a man with a goatee. Got run over by a crappy bud light Zamboni.

So today should be fun. I must have either slept wrong or pulled something working out yesterday cause my lower back is killing me. Every time I step or turn wrong I get a sharp pain through my back. Yup... working 8 hours on my feet is going to be a blast.

A college does undergrad; a University grants post-grad degrees. Also, the University of Maryland prefix denotes that it's part of the Maryland University system, kind of like SUNY in New York.

Ha.

I was never a gambling guy. I go to Vegas, see the amazing buildings and decadence, and think "This was funded by people losing their money." I see what the lottery jackpot is up to and think "This was funded by people handing out their money." I put money into my 401k and think "Hey, what could go wrong?"

People who obessively pump money into that thing obviously have money handling issues, but I'm going to throw a buck at it today. What the hell, it's not like I'm going to miss $1.

I admit to having money handling problems as I toss a few bucks into it every week.

They are $2 now. And agreed people that count on that windfall someday are whacko.
I play it every once in awhile, because why not?

Allow me to amend my previous statement with:

I am just too afraid that my numbers would be called. I'm too satisfied with the way things are going right now to screw everything up. If you could win anonymously, then sure, I'd be on board. Having every lowlife (or worse, normal people or friends) come out of the woodwork and lick their chops at you would be terrifying. I'll be content to fly as far under the radar as I can.

On a lighter note, the website for powerball is hilarious. Their FAQ has a link to real questions/answers.

Quote:
FROM MR: On the FAQ page, it say an annuity is guaranteed. In this economy, how is it guaranteed?

The word "guarantee" is certainly overused from time to time, but if it can have any meaning in the English language, then it can be used with the Powerball jackpot. You can imagine some instances where even a Powerball jackpot will not continue:
(1) A meteor strikes North America, wiping out all life.
(2) The U.S. government is overrun by [insert name of feared enemy here].
Short of these events, the Powerball annuity prize will be paid on schedule. What we actually use for our investments is not important; the Powerball prize -- which pays a graduated annuity, rising at 4% per year to keep up with inflation -- is a contract between each of the lottery members (the states) and you. As long as the U.S.A is in business, you will be paid. If the U.S.A. fails, then you will have other things to worry about.
Quote:
FROM STEWART N: What do you think about the number 19?

I like it. An odd mix of the smallest number and the largest - together in one package. It speaks to the extremes of the Universe and yet shows how they can be inexorably tied.

It is also unique in that both numbers are formed by a single constant line (using standard type). One line straight; the other curving before coming down to the base line - not so distant cousins - and neither one having a family relation with any other number. The "4" has mutliple stops and abrupt changes in directions with its multiple line formation and the "2", "3", "5", and "7" have their sudden starts and stops.

Although a mere number, as humans, we can't but help to tie it to other numbers by which we judge ourselves. As an age number it is greatly important; the first step from being a "teenager" to becoming a "young adult". In fact, the shapes of the numbers suggest a relationship between youth and age - the straight erect youth next to the bent and wizened old-timer standing together - as if sharing the secrets of life (though "1" will certainly not listen).

I would have to put "19" up there as a major number; a number among numbers. Yes, I definitely like "19".
