re: When did your kids start sleeping through the night? - Teddy Ruxpin
Both kids around 3/4 months after doing the regular feeding sleep training thing. Seemed to work. First kid just transferred to a normal bed and hasn't attempted to come downstairs the first month so I'm feeling pretty lucky....

re: Why doesn't Russia just destroy Ukraine? - Teddy Ruxpin
[quote]You mean the way this guy's military used overwhelming force and rapidly seized territory while Saddam Hussein's disbanded? Russia hasn't made all the right decisions or performed flawlessly. But the obvious strategy has been to avoid having to occupy a lot of territory (outside of heavily...

re: Why do we give the socialists/communists a pass on things like the Holodomor? - Teddy Ruxpin
Eddie Izzard covered this years ago. Stalin and Mao killed their own mostly. Hitler tried to kill other people and we just can't allow that :lol:...

re: Best generation besides the “Greatest Generation” debate solved - Teddy Ruxpin
Born in 1985 here. Youngest child of three. Both grandparents in WWII. One shot three separate times in Europe. Dad did refugee flights during the fall of Saigon. Grew up on a lot of 80s stuff because of older brothers/toys and my grandma would record all the cartoons on VHS for us. Those v...

[quote]The point was that Russia's strategy has focused on attrition more than rapidly seizing territory.[/quote] :lol: If they had overwhelming force and could rapidly seize territory there would be no need for a war of attrition because the Ukrainian forces would have disbanded. No army in ...

re: Car tries to come wrong side down a one-way street; GM's driverless taxi wasn't having it - Teddy Ruxpin
[quote]No way I’m riding in that taxi…FTS[/quote] Rode in one a few weeks ago. It did a pretty decent job. Was giving room to people walking on the side on the road etc. I noticed the biggest issue it has really is the other people using the road doing unpredictable dumb shite. A pedicab came a...

re: What % of your portfolio do you leave in cash? - Teddy Ruxpin
[quote]Obviously way easier said than done[/quote] This caveat is carrying so much weight you don't even realize. You can't even predict if you're in that 20% from bottom or not when the market moves. Most people are fooling themselves that there's a pattern or they can easily notice these thi...

re: 2 houses right around the corner from each other, 2 years apart price difference - Teddy Ruxpin
I'm not in LA but I closed on our house April 1, 2020 as COVID shutdowns started. In 2022 I could have sold at 100% gain. It was crazy:lol:...

re: Croatia - Spring - Teddy Ruxpin
I can't say how crowded it is now as I went during COVID in 2021 so they were down well off their usual. Only downside to Old Town Dubrovnik is it really isn't a town anymore, so it's more like a museum than a living place if that makes sense. Still pretty cool. I stayed at the Hotel Excelsior wh...

re: Adult star-turned-data scientist: I had more sex than showers in 2022 - Teddy Ruxpin
[quote]By her own account, Aella engaged in about twice the amount of sex as she did showers, with 63 sexual encounters last year.[/quote] Anyone else thought 63 was pretty low for a sex worker? That's a little over 5 times a month. Married people can hit that....

re: I'd be interested to hear everyone's opinions of a national sales tax... - Teddy Ruxpin
I kind of feel like a lot of people would be mostly fine with the tax system we have if the rates were the rates without so many/any deductions. Perhaps just a low level standard deduction to offset poverty levels but otherwise simple enough. Basically a flat tax/progressive hybrid that people on bo...

re: Trump goes after DeSantis again. - Teddy Ruxpin
I 'member. And hey, if we're ranking Desantis, Trump, and a Democrat as President during COVID, Trump obviously looks better there, but it's just laughable as a method of a disqualifying attack towards Desantis....

re: Trump goes after DeSantis again. - Teddy Ruxpin
[quote]Are you fricking high?[/quote] It's pretty funny because the Trump administration was pushing lockdowns early. So, according to that poster, Desantis is bad for following Trump's lead for all of a month but Trump doesn't get nailed for supporting that strategy in the first place and di...
