    Good thing Mikkelsson is a great mom (mentioned countless times throughout the game) because she sure as hell ain't a hockey player anymore. Not a good one anyways.

    If this was their final skate - will they finally admit they're into each other and get married?

    Crossing my fingers for Malik Jefferson or Harold Landry

    Grandma's buying stocks at a peak have no one to blame but themselves. ACB has made me tons of money and never have I bought on the upswing. It's like when grams used to say "if all your friends jumped off a bridge would you?".. They should apply the same logic to all their friends buying a certain stock.

    I believe you're correct in that it can become an RRIF at the time you declare retirement - I just used 65 as the generic example.
  6. 17 dead in Florida high school shooting, no thread on CDC .. sad how this has just become 'non-important' news .. not saying there SHOULD be a thread, just pointing out the sad state of the states

      we dont need more sad threads on here, also if there is going to be a thread there should be a thread about gun violence or mass shootings in general.

      I get tired of talking about it

      I agree with the OP. We as a society are becoming more and more desensitized to violence.

  7. Amazon Alexa or google home

    Agreed - I have mine on the kitchen island and aesthetically it'd be a lot nicer to have it [wireless] in a more discrete place.
  8. Amazon Alexa or google home

    I like my Google Home. I'll sometimes "send to Google" a recipe while I'm at work, and when I get home just say "Hey Google, let's cook" and she'll tell me the recipe in steps. I also use IFTTT to control 2 smart outlets and a Phillips wireless light bulb with my google home. My TV also has Google Chromecast so if I'm in the kitchen I'll just tell Google what to play on Netflix.

    McKenzie and Chatfield and Palmu are probably the outsiders, and if the other 4 of the 7 are regular NHLers, that's a success.

    Good - he deserves it. His current NHL roster may not be that good right now, but the future has never looked brighter. He's made some mistakes, but who hasn't? (The savior everyone wants Ken Holland has given out many more, and much more horrendous UFA contracts). 3 years is ample time to see what kind of impact Boeser, Petersson, Juolevi, Lind, Gadjovich, Palmu, Gaudette, McKenzie, Chatfield can make, and how his acquisitions like Baertschi continue to grow. Obviously 3 years isn't the ceiling on a lot of the young guys, especially last year's picks, but it's enough time to know if they're going to be impact players or not at the nhl level.

    I can definitely see a 35 year old Shaun White in Beijing

    Don't put so much in your RRSP that you're somewhat screwed for the present and short term. You work hard for your money. Always plan for the future but also learn to enjoy your hard work from time to time. Locking the majority of your money away in an RRSP that you can't touch until you're 65 is useless if you log off CDC, step outside and get hit by a bus. My general rule is have enough liquid to pay 3 month's mortgage, 3 month's car payment, and $300 a month x 3 months for entertainment/social. Everything else is invested. That's what works for me, and is an option for me having lived at home throughout my undergrad and moving out after, instead of moving out during my undergrad. Depending on your financial situation, adjust. Might be 1 month's worth of funds, might be 2. Maybe you can afford 6 months and invest everything else. Point being - have enough liquid that you don't stress and can enjoy your life socially.
  13. NFL thread

    Haha I definitely don't disagree. They don't want to lose their access. No reporter wants to be the one to lose access to covering a dynasty. It sucks because you get the same type of stories coming out all the time. But it's why I like Mike Reiss who is the beat reporter for ESPN Boston. He's very objective with his reporting, and is never in favor, or against the team, he purely writes on facts and doesn't state his own opinion. He also does a lot of polling which I like. The other guy I follow is Jeff Howe, but that's because he's more comedian than a reporter lol.
  14. NFL thread

    Despite only playing him once every 2-3 years, he'd be a known obstacle in the playoffs. Just like how now AFC teams know they have to "go through" Brady and Belichick, they didn't want Jimmy G being a thorn in their side. I think an extremely low 2nd round pick for Jimmy G was good, for a guy that would've walked anyways and we might've gotten a 4th or 5th round compensatory pick. All depends on what that 2nd round pick turns into. If he turns into a star, people will compare that player to Garoppolo when referencing the trade and will call it even (unless of course Jimmy G goes on a Patriots type dynasty run). On the flip side, if he flops, it'll look like Jimmy G was lost for nothing anyways. Also, Belichick might've also screwed the Browns out of the trade (if the rumors are true) because I have read he does have some ill will towards the franchise for the move during his time. Making minor trades with them is fine, but me thinks a small part of him enjoys their turmoil, especially because he feels he could've continued making improvements there. Also, pretty sure Brady would himself veto any trade by means of retire. For a guy who loves his family as much as he does, and his mom getting some treatment in Boston, I don't see him living out of a hotel in some city for 5 months playing out a last year.
