Poor kid.

You're behind the times. Name has been changed. Last part of the name is Xii.

But it's not the name that makes this kid a poor kid, it's the type of parents.

X A-Xii isn't any better. But al least I can try to pronounce it now. "Ex ah /ē/ aksi"
I'm not who you think I am.

Who said it's better? The problem isn't the name but the wacky parents. The main difference about the updated version of the name is that it might be legal to put on a California birth certificate (which is why it's Xii at the end and not XII - Roman numerals seem to be non-compliant).

Don't let the URL fool you, this is a really interesting article about a theory by a great thinker that seems to be proven right.

Unfortunately I don't find time to read books these days, I did read an essay or a summary of Neil How's theory several years ago (probably courtesy of John Mauldin) and have been loosely following every since.

It'll be interesting to see how many of those lower paying jobs come back as soon as the $600/week ends.

The thing with the hamster is that running on the wheel is actually what it is trying to do.

If the yidden are part of this then I hope you have tzedaka organizations to help out all those who are making a lot of money now but eventually lose everything as has happened in every single community where flipping was rampant.
