I think the universe is finite but unbounded. A 3 sphere.

There isn't a sewer* in my department who has full range of motion in her shoulders. Its an occupational hazard from spending 8-10 hours with your hands in front of you guiding fabric through the machine.


*For those not familiar with the sewn products industry,

A seamstress does fine dressmaking and alterations.

A sewing machine operator places items into the automated machinery and runs it (which may be a simple task or a complex one depending on the item and the machine).

A commercial sewer uses a non-automated sewing machine to sew items together -- usually performing a single step in a process with a high degree of speed and precision.

Well that's good. You know when Eugene Scalia was at the Department of Labor he claimed that Ergonomics was junk science and there was no such thing as repetitive motion injuries.

I'm all over the department so one mat would do me no good. The company does not deign to spend money on comfort or ergonomics for the workers so many of the standing workstations have no mats and others the mats are worn beyond safe use.

I do have good, orthopedic shoe inserts.

I didn't say it had more merit. Neither one of us knows for sure. And you should get one of those rubber mats if you have to stand on concrete for long periods. It's a lot easier on your knees and feet.

And this has more merit than my belief that God used evolution as a means of bringing forth life for what reason?

Likewise about my belief that its possible for the time-span of creation to be both 7 days and 4.5 billion years simultaneously?*

*This is a summary of a much more complex chain of reason that I haven't time to bore people with since I'm posting these comments while being hostess for my son's LAN party (started Thursday with rotating shifts of gamers), and trying to write a new resume.

It would probably be easier to write about creation-time than to create a resume when I don't even know what job I want except that I want to work in air conditioning and not have to stand on concrete all day.

Dear Comrade Eric,

No, I’m not confused. I think perhaps you don’t understand how tax law actually operates in real life.

Even assuming that the Buffett rule raises taxes on capital gains, there are easy ways for rich people to avoid paying capital gains taxes.

Unlike income taxes, a person can choose...
