I like this a great deal, though it's lacking three important features as I see it:

- range of forecasts considering irregular returns on investment, etc
- tax treatment
- better ways to see effect of moving one variable (i.e. I can plug in a new value for RoR and see the new curve, but not any easy way to see the curve of "balance at age 80" plotted against RoR.)

There are so many factors.  It takes a spreadsheet.

I really like taking current living expenses and inflation adjusting rather than just plugging in retirement costs (which will vary over the 15-30 years of retirement).  That also requires medical to be called out as it's effectively 0 now but is growing faster than inflation and grows with age.

This would be great for novices that will never become experts (which is why it's very close to what, say, Rock Band does.)  But for anyone trying to play real (i.e. hard) music, it's a definite loss: while it takes skill and practice to quickly read chords in traditional sheet music, it's by no means hard for someone who can actually handle complex parts, and pays for itself in density, which means you get much deeper lookahead, which is crucial for good playing.
TL;DR: Here’s a new method for writing sheet music for piano that makes it easier to learn to play everyday songs. Tradi…

Also, scanning horizontally to line up dense timings and syncopated rhythms was a nightmare. Really needs to rock band scrolling to make obvious sense.

Oh, Steve, channeling me is probably not the best strategy.

Do I know anyone who makes their own seltzer/soda water?

At work I really like citrus-flavored seltzer, and I'm unsure how to make it myself.  Citrus oils?  Acid?

Yeah, I have the kegs for carbonating other things (worked fairly well on flavored sugar water to make homemade soda for a birthday party). I've seen the 2 liter carbonating cap but never played with it. Looks like a cheap addition to the CO2 toolbox...

I have a set of n points in the unit hypercube in D dimensions. Preprocess however you like; then make the following function as fast as possible: given an arbitrary subhypercube, draw an point from that subcube uniformly at random.

Not presupposing any distribution on the points. They can be arbitrarily bad (and the query area might contain all or just one.)

This is what happens when you make a tunnel for trains: it opens ahead of schedule, under the budget, and fucking works.

After all, it is well known that the ghost of Chief Si'ahl, being a big transit fan, routinely curses any public works intended for the use of individual cars.  Why King County didn't consider this before Bertha I'll never know.

For serious, I'm very happy that we'll have a saner rail system (given decades), but this is pointless duckspeak.
This is what happens when you make a tunnel for trains: it opens ahead of schedule, under the budget, and fucking works. No form of transportation is more irrational, more costly, and more stupid than the car. It is the deadest end.

really looking forward to National Terrify All Pets night, especially with a brand new unknown 120 pound dog in the house.

Should be an interesting evening, then.

Temeraire, maybe three feet from snout to butt, twenty inches at the withers, 45 pounds, likes to sleep curled tightly in a ball, her nose tucked under her hindquarters and her legs folded beneath her.

Bellerophon, maybe five feet from snout to butt, forty inches at the withers, 120 pounds, likes to sleep lying straight on his side with all four legs held straight at right angles to his body.

He is very cute but could learn manners in this one thing from the Lady Goosechaser.  I am running out of room for me on the bed.

For rather stupid reasons I was forced into obtaining a costco membership this week.  What things should I buy there that are the best way to save money?

I don't think the cooking liquid is super important for the braise, more the long heat for breaking down tissue and stewing in something so it doesn't become leather. Sous vide does an awesome job of keeping its own juices locked in the bag, so no need to add more right? I don't know enough about the science of braise.

Now, the weird unknown I have is braise usually requires cooking past well-done. What happens when you sous vide at say 135F, about a Medium, for super long? The Food Lab indicates it shreds super easily, which would be consistent with the long period breaking down the issue, but it still looks pink and has a weird texture.

Obviously you get around this if you sous vide at a higher temp.

My first attempt at bottled, carbonated cocktails. This is version 0 of what I'm calling the Bud Light Lime.

(Current iteration: per bottle, 2oz Vida mezcal, dash Regan's orange bitters, dash saline, 1/2 oz home made lime cordial (of annoyingly indeterminate strength), 1/4 oz simple.)

Great selection of meats, like twenty choices for sides. Friendly service. Four sauces, all good, all different. Sides of excellent quality (if perhaps overpriced.)
