@dankwraith yeah i mean you can think about all education this way; the reason education is valuable is because the world is full of infinite fractal beauty and complexity and a lifetime of learning about it is the best way to spend your limited time on earth, but instead we just think of education as a glorified job training program

JIRA, grumpy 

So, email signature policy combined with #JIRA allowing replies by email means that now this JIRA thread is full of one-line responses each padded with 10-line signatures.

Like, with such kinds of money you can access to stocks and commodities with very high return rates, and they can quickly add up zeros - in fact, you can have a big diversity of sources which provide very high return rates. You *may* be able to access them with less money, but reaching the millions is basically impossible.

With dozens of thousands you can also access financial and business tools that open you up to the global market and to further funding, but you have that secured beforehand.
