I read it in "The Smartest Guy in the Room". Don't recall the guys name. Don't have the book anymore.
Sure, the company got hosed.
Meanwhile, the partner who spearheaded the push got sufficient bonuses (from AA) to compensate him for the lack of any future career. He was on their executive board by the end of it pulling in a fat, fat bonus every year based exclusively on his Enron relationship.
If I can make N million dollars from a single bad act, maybe we need to have a better punishment than "never allowed to work again.
beer is roughly $1000/ton (based on a 150lb keg costing about $75). You're looking at maybe a 5% rise in cost.
Except you're looking at the weight ratios wrong. Producing 1 ton of beer produces less than 1 ton of spent grain (beer is mostly water). So the ratio would be probably be closer to.... I don't know 1:5. Which would only be a 1% rise in cost.
I would agree, but "Rusty Shackleford" is the alias of "Dale Gribble" from "King of the Hill." So, being used as the "non-name name" on a show that millions of people watched for over a decade may lead to a lot of other people also using it.
Similar to how "Doe" is a pretty rare real last name, but very common in aliases.
Sorry to go dark. Life intruded.
I think the best method is to take things off slashdot.

I thought the shredding was technically legal because it was presubponea
Yeah, I remember how well that worked in the 90's
Remember when Arther Anderson stood up to Enron and refused to sign their books. And in turn sacrificed the lucrative consulting contracts with Enron for only CPA fees.
As opposed to simply adding a footnote disavowing the report before signing it anyway.
Are you honestly saying that using a step-function is what makes taxes so complicated?
There are two parts that make taxes complex. The first is deductions. That takes up a bit of the complexity. The second is defining income. That's hugely complex.
In one easy to identify problem, your system seems to imply that I have to pay taxes on the value of any asset I sell, not just the appreciation of that asset since purchase. Which makes investing... interesting.
I have a bit of free time.
I did some pretty basic accounting in the past, and wrote most of the internal report generating software my company (quite small) uses.
What scared me away from publishing any accounting software before was the lack of a CPA. Do companies not care if the software is verified as long as it is transparent?
But if you're serious, I'd love to know more.
I agree. But that makes this is an excellent example of how the world should work:
Shitty practice exists
News media locates and publicizes this shitty practice instead of focusing on celebrities/tragedies
People in charge fix the problem, either out of embarrassment or because someone who was ignorant of it but had the power to stop it finds out it's going on.
You can tell her Majesty that we will gladly pay our Tea Taxes once restitution has been made for the Revolutionary War, impressment of our sailors, War of 1812 (including burning D.C.), and the money we loaned during the world wars.
They recognized the inheritance of debt. The IRS ended this policy shortly before Slashdot reported on it.
I suppose Slashdot will post a countering news study a few days from now.
Beyond that, most modern medicine requires pharmaceuticals and technology. Most doctors would be pretty bad off post-apocalypse.
Also, my career is irrelevant. I can build a house. But my career is in technology. So I would have to turn a hobby into a job.
If the people on
/. don't see the worth of buying decent mobile apps - what's the point of them other than to advertise and hijack the masses?
Well, that's how I feel about a smart phone in general.
I'd love to get the advantages of a smartphone, but see these as insurmountable obstacles.
The spying by Apple/Google/Microsoft (not sure about what Blackberry does).
Taking something quite secure and adding the worry about spyware/adware/viruses.
The walled garden that keep me from being able to just, I dunno, run linux software.
Being stuck in the high cost/low quality distribution, ala would be the case for Hulu plus.
"You're so hot, I have to wear ANSI Z87.1 compliant eye protection"
I would sleep with any girl who used that line on me.
