The easy fix is to put a $0.05 a call tax on all autodialers.

Addendum:  If that doesn't chill the problem, double it and keep doubling it until the profits are all going for taxes.

Trick with autodialers is detecting them to make the charge, especially since most of them are already spamming illegal source numbers

I'm almost done working, I think I'm going to bake an apple pie after dinner.

Just need to do something fun.

I will be celebrating this. Was inspired to read the wikipedia blurb about it, had no idea dogs had such a special place in Hinduism.

What kind of top do you use for your apple pie? Are you a lattice topper or the solid dough top kind of person?

 

Another driech day here. Fairly typical here for this time of year. Woke up to thunderstorms and heavy rain. Desperately need a haircut, and am eyeballing the set of clippers heavily. Might just be that time in life when I go for the buzz cut.

Oh, I have no illusions about reaching an audience or anything... I'm just proud of myself for keeping it going for so long.

 

As you should be. I used to have a personal blog on one site (then migrated to another when it shut down) and had tons of entries before I shut it down. I met a lot of people, some of which I'm still in touch with to this day.

I just... Get tired of things sometimes and need a break.

Wasn't someone in politics talking about making some changes to get things back under control?

 

When I get a robo call, I just set the phone down and keep doing stuff until they hang up. If I get a real person, I shout "BUY MY BOOK!" and hang up. :devil:

So while I blinked, this happened.

 

Not our first snow, but enough for the snowplows to come out.

Fall has been very brief this year.

 

And just so you know, I've had my winter tires on for over two weeks.

Here I sit reading about what this guy did to the robo-caller and I get a robo-call. <_<

Thankfully I rarely get robocalls. Mostly I get calls from recruiters trying to get me for jobs in NJ for some reason. Like, dudes, I live in Brooklyn... If it takes more than an hour to get there, I ain't going!

 

Food consumed. Coffee had. Feeling more alive. Might try to hobby while the kid naps.

Tell them for 2.5 times the money you'd consider it.

 

Which state is better/worse on state income tax?

Pretty much anywhere is better than NYC for taxes.

At least they let you pump your own gasoline into your car. I'd refuse to live in NJ based solely on that fact.

 

@Glitterwolf sorry if I missed it in a previous post, but how is Brutus doing? Molly and Dixie send best wishes.
