Re: Traffic Tickets
I used to put coins in people's meters, so this is definitely cheaper. I used to get constant arrest threats for "obstruction of justice".

Funny. I did the same thing along Central Avenue for many Sundays, when all the meter maids are hopping around. Never got anything but dirty looks, though.

Sleeping on long flights I'm flying to Israel on a flight which lands on Friday morning, and I must sleep on the plane. Problem is, I find sleeping on an airplane impossible. Does anyone have any advice on falling asleep on the plane?

Ecco shoes for wide feet My feet are huge (size 13 and on the wide side) and I feel like I've been stuck buying either Rockport or Hush Puppies all my life. Would Ecco shoes have a remote chance of fitting me?

Re: Buy/Sell Past Car Rentals To Reactivate Expired Miles
if I have it British Airway miles expiring in the next month or two what's the best way to keep it active? If I have a friend of mine which took out a car rental can I use his rental to renew my mileage on my British Airways account?

 Anyone know if shopping through ba.com works for extending your miles?

You can try a car rental. Otherwise, just book a random domestic award ticket and pay $5.60 in taxes, and cancel after 24 hours. The miles will be redeposited minus $5.60, and the expiration will be extended.

Tight connection at CDG Iím looking at a good flight TLV-JFK on AF, but thereís only a 1h25m connection at CDG.

Iíve never booked such a tight connection, so two questions:

Will I (and my luggage) most likely make it on the right flight?

And, what happens if I miss my connecting flight?

TIA.

Re: Hertz President Circle
Why not?

Let sleeping dogs lie. Your status probably officially expired but it's rarely enforced. Don't bring it to their attention or you risk a manual downgrade.

And how long will it last if I just leave it? I am asking because I want to rent a car in two weeks and if it will expire I want to reapply before I rent.

I would expect you to retain the status indefinitely.

Re: Stocks
Sold a small position which I picked up a few days ago at a bargain price for quick 10%+ gain. Gotta love those $0 commissions. This made sense for a tiny balance HSA account that currently cannot be funded.

I also took the opportunity to trim my positions down closer to cost. Would never have done that before $0 commissions.

The key is to be less greedy. As my grandfather put it, we have bulls, bears and pigs

Re: Is there any good news in the fight against COVID-19?
If less bad news counts as good news it seems the bad news is slowing. Not hearing of so many new infections hospitalizations etc. Maybe some of the people on here that are connected in hatzola bikur cholim hospitals etc. can confirm if this is the case. Hopefully all the shutdowns are finally slowing down the virus.
Last motzei shabbos was terrible b"h sounds better this week.

Correct. But they graciously relocated to NY only to provide critical support while not making any extra money there.

Re: Will the truth come out how NYC & NYS made blunder after blunder?
Seems like Trump is probably a good analogy here.
Yes, he said something really stupid but did he actually do anything terrible?

Maybe I'm not understanding what's going on here but is this not just the regular tax rules kicking in? What exactly was he supposed to? Is there even a mechanism in place to waive those taxes or would special legislation be required? (these are legit questions, no gotchas. I really have no idea what's going on)

They would likely need to waive it specially.

Re: How should schools and parents deal with tuition?
If this is true, then yes, the teachers probably deserve to be paid less. Honestly, they should probably go on partial unemployment. It has not been the experience of the schools I interact with.

Yes and no. They may have less work to do but it's much less satisfying and much more draining.
