2021.12.03 13:17 DanIsAManWithAFan Attracted to numbers
I have an idea how to teach a kid how to manage money in school, which is honestly something that school's should be teaching anyhow; math, math isn't going to teach you how to do more then count it. I'm 38, I didn't really learn this shit, or have the ability to let money just sit there.
Of course I was an entry level engineer and have an attraction to numbers and the organization of them, but that didn't help me understand something that I wish I knew when I graduated high school. My idea might make it easier for kids to understand data organization and why spreadsheets are not just some dumb tool that smart people use. If they're anything like my friend who just, "Doesn't think that way," it'll be easier to think that way when you see the benefits of it.
Make fake currency, or run a spreadsheet and set up a false banking system where all the kids have a fake ATM card. School is what, like, 40 weeks or some shit?
Every week they, "Earn," a paycheck and you'll just hand them X amount. Then you also setup a false system of where they would like to live and the mouthy cost of that. Based on that you setup prices for water, trash, electricity, and any other needed utility.
Set a budget for how much food they need to buy. If they want a car assign a car payment as well as auto insurance. If they don't want a car assign a car make up some sort of fee for public transportation. If they don't care about that and they just want to, "Walk," to work, pay them less often to simulate being fired due to a lack of time management.
Set up a cable bill if they want that, set up a price for the internet. In short just make up a bunch of services and bill each student every mouth based upon their preference of what they would like to have in this simulation.
From there pay them X amount each Friday, if there is no school that day treat it as a paid holiday or something. But do not try to tell kids that they can't have it because they can't afford it. They will figure that out, hopefully. Setup some type of punishment for going into debt. Hell, if you want to set up a loan program with a certain amount of interest based upon something.
Once that is established and has gone on for a few weeks without any advice. Take on the role of a financial advisor where you teach the kids to take everything that they have to pay for and divide that by 4 just to show them how much they are really spending on a weekly basis.
Then go into the idea of taking that same amount and dividing it into 3rds. So they can hopefully understand that 33% of all your bills might be 90% of your paycheck. Ask them if they want to save money too and if they do take that 10% and ask them how much they want to save each week.
The goal is to get the kid to understand that they only get to keep about 10% of there pay if the choose correctly. This sucks but if it's done the way I'm thinking, and I don't know if I'm explaining it correctly; this whole thing might be harder to do then I think.
But if done correctly the kid only gets to keep about 10% of their pay, say they decide to save 2% of that 10%, the goal is to teach the kid that setting it up this way will not only make them feel like their not, "Living from paycheck to paycheck," but also teaches them that 2%+2%+2%+2%+2%= it adds up and gives them more cushioning when the hot water heater goes out of there car needs service or some type of, "Oh shit," moment which will happen to them at some point.
When the kid is done with this class they probably won't care because it was all fake, but when they move out and understand that paying bills is not as easy as it sounds they will hopefully have a memory and be able to utilize that type of idea way before I did.
I hope that made any type of sense to anyone besides me.

2021.12.03 13:17 that1_tattedgirl The struggle to come up with a solid start to a book
Hey all! I hope you are doing well today and may the creativity flow freely in your work.
As the title states I am having a hard time with starting an intro for a book I have been trying to work on for the last few months. When I mean I am having an issue with starting it up I feel as though it is the understatement of the year!
For a little back story the idea came to me after a roleplay my friend and I were working on together.
General idea of the plot is: The prince of purgatory takes over but must choose a queen to rule with him. This particular prince fell for a human girl.
I guess I am stuck as to where to start the story where he see's her for the first time. Being descriptive is not an issue, but I don't want something that is overplayed in a hallmark movie.
Any ideas and tips would be recommended.

2021.12.03 13:17 Lilstranger21 Epilepsy and universal credit.
Hi! I really need some information I’ve been having about 17 seizures a day and got fired because of this. I went into universal credit almost a year ago to try and get them under control but have failed. Medicine roulette and going to the hospital constantly because they just don’t know enough about epilepsy. Anyways, I have a message from my work coach saying I haven’t attended my appointment I said to her I have a couple sick notes from the gp and neurologist i can’t work at the moment and I can’t get to the job centre. She continued to tell me sick notes don’t get you out of job searching and I need to attend appointments. I’m really confused by this it’s hard to attend them as most the time I’m either out of it or can’t make my way there. Any help would be appreciated.

is ramen the only thing they serve? i went last night for the first time and had the pork ramen & it was so good i want it again tonight but the ucla dining site says it’s serving “chimmilier” fried chicken... so is that just the topping for the ramen or it’s own dish?

2021.12.03 13:17 monitorcable What kind of tomfoolery is happening to my GME percentage? Why is this "glitch" only happening with GME in my account?
I noticed and posted the same thing yesterday. How come only GME is showing this random glitch sometimes when I refresh my Schwab account? I do this every day and it has always been perfect as it should be; it's all numbers in perfect mathematical computations controlled by secure programs in whatever system used by the brokerages/banks/exchanges. None of my other tickers are experiencing this. Screenshot

2021.12.03 13:17 tealturtle_ Blood in poop?!
FTM here, I apologize if this is TMI but I want some reassurance. I’m approximately 5 weeks 9 days along. I was incredibly constipated earlier this week due to taking Zofran for my intense nausea. I stopped the zofran and switched to Unisom and B6 at the direction of my doctor. I started eating Raisin Bran and taking colace to help with having a bowel movement. Today I pooped and when I wiped there was bright red blood?? The poop that came out was really hard and a bit sharp. There was no blood in my underwear and when I wiped after peeing there was also no blood in my vagina area. I just want reassurance that it’s normal that the blood was in my poop. I’m so scared of blood and getting a miscarriage.😣

2021.12.03 13:17 L4Suk Is DTF suitable for workwear printing - Alpha Signs and Print
At Alpha Signs and Print here in the UK, we have a good business but have always done screen printing and vinyl transfer. All our small orders have been outsourced to a company with Kornit DTG's but we have never been that impressed with the finish.
We never wanted to invest in DTG equipment as the process and maintenance seemed inhibitive for the amount of small runs we do. The samples we had from the smaller printer manufacturers did not seem to have the best longevity. We mainly print for businesses for their workwear and T shirts etc so need to produce quality items with a good lifespan.
For those people using DTF on a regular basis, could you give a real life account of what its like to use the process and how the prints are holding up for to day to day conditions. Would you advise sticking with sub contracting small orders out to the printers with the Kornits or is this new tech up to the job.
Does the quality and lifespan justify the price point for the equipment?
