. All the rest of you, don't mix it with alcohol or take it for a hangover. The toxicity is cumulative
From what I gather from the literature, you are right about the hangover, but wrong about the mixing with alcohol. The blood concentration of the toxic degradation product is lowered when paracetamol is taken with alcohol, probably due to the alcohol successfully competing with cytochrome P450 in the liver, in much the same way that alcohol can be used to treat methanol poisoning (though another enzyme is competed for here).
However, there seems to be no reason to not use inbuprofen or naproxen:
All NSAIDs are hazardous, but but some have higher toxicities than others. For occasional and long-term use, products like ibuprofen and naproxen are safer and as effective as other NSAIDs.
Except, of course, individual problems, like you mention with Tylenol.
Delivery is OK but I think you get a worse selection of fresh produce than if you go and pick in person.
On the other hand, you get produce that hasn't been in the store all day, and that 10 other customers have not picked up and put down again.
You also miss the special offers that you see round the store
That depends on the store, some do have special offers in their web store.
For example, if you live in France, and you enjoy not speaking German, (or if you live anywhere in Europe, for that matter, and enjoy not being required to speak German...) you're welcome.
Conversly, if it weren't for the French, you would be writing English.
No more flash crashes
Wouldn't this lead to more flash crashes, where everybody tries to sell at the same time if a company does badly, as everybody can react to the news simultaneously, and know that they don't get another chance for a month? And everybody is afraid that somebody knows more, so they are more eager to sell?
On the other hand, it does serve some purposes: It decreases volatility (at least, it seems so from the data), and in reduces the bid-ask spread.
They are *not* suggesting banning the activity, but restricting it with taxation to make it less attractive to profit from short-term fluctuations in prices - this would dampen volatility.
A transaction tax sounds like a good idea to me, do you have any concrete objections to it?
It could increase the volatility. If a tax was introduced, it wouldn't make sense to trade for small changes in price. When the prices change become large enough that it makes sense, the people selling would drive the price down further, leading more people to sell.
It would also lessen the liquidity, leading to worse prices. As it is today, I can sell my stock to HFTrs at close to the current value. If there were no HTFrs, I would have the choice of selling now at sub-optimal prices now or waiting in the hope that somebody would at some time would meet the price I want.
