This is so beautiful

If you lived in NYC and made than 75k/year you can't file online using the state's website, and both of those were true for me. I moved out of NYC last June, I live in Florida now. Also, why should I have to go see a tax agent? I should just be able to do it all online myself. I've been doing it for 7 years with TurboTax.

I had to mail in my state taxes for NY due to NYC regulations, which I didn't know about since I've been using TurboTax for 7 years. I was only informed of this after I had filed my taxes federally using the IRS system. There is no way to just file your state taxes online, you have to do both and if you submit them a second time it just gets rejected.

It's good that they're doing this, but it caused a lot of headaches for me that I was unaware of.

Yeah, I just assumed it would work smoothly by now. I've been using TurboTax for the past 7 years and have had no issues, I attempted to save money by doing it this way, but it caused way more headaches for me.

I had them already prepared (I attempted to do it via H&R block as well but it was rejected since I had already submitted my federal forms), I just couldn't submit them. Also I moved 1300 miles away in the past year, so I couldn't really do that anyway haha

A city problem to be more exact. Since I lived in NYC and made more than 75k in a year I couldn't file online, using the site the IRS directed me to (I've been doing it myself with TurboTax for the past 7 years, and paying for it). Due to the IRS' own rules, you can't file just your state tax returns online, since they're largely the same as the federal taxes. So both are actually at fault.

I live in Florida now so I don't have to pay state taxes, so next year's will be a breeze.

So much poop throwing

Because it's funny to laugh at insane people

Threadripper already accomplished all of this years ago. My TR2970WX has 24 cores/48 threads, 48 PCI-E lanes, and it supports ECC and non-ECC RAM. My AsRock Rack board has BMC support as well.

The Threadripper series was the perfect workstation CPU. I've had mine for a few years and it can handle anything I throw at it, it can easily transcode 2-3 4K videos while doing multiple other things.

It wasn't cheap though, it was like $650 on sale, originally like a grand or so.

Yeah, but I should be able to have them separate as well like I can in every other Linux distro. In TrueNAS they force you to have them in separate subnets for some reason.

I saw this on a (scammy) dating app and thought it was hilarious.

I started lifting weights (again) and accurately tracking my progress (I bought a "cheap" workout and weight loss plan, which requires a lot of data so you can see your progress (or regress)). When bench pressing and doing squats on the (Cybex) Smith Machine I had assumed that the bar weighed 45 pounds like a free bar does and added it to the total weight. It wasn't until my most recent session (finished about 30 minutes ago) that I realized that the bar doesn't in fact weigh 45 pounds....but weighs anywhere from 7 to 30 pounds, according to what I saw from a quick search. I should have realized that it wasn't 45 pounds because it felt pretty light. Google says that the average weight tends to be about 15 pounds, but I have no idea.

I was also using the (Cybex) overhead should press machine and saw that the plates past 50 pounds went in 15 pound increments. Then I noticed the additional weight at the top, disabled by a pin. When I lowered it down on to the stack there was no number on it. Was it 5 pounds? 7.5 pounds? 10 pounds? Who knows?

How are people supposed to know how much weight they're lifting if things aren't numbered properly? They have these huge stickers that say everything, but they can't put "bar weighs 15 lbs" on it?

Each bar is wrapped in cellophane, which are then wrapped in the normal outer packaging. To make the 4 pack, they simply took 2x two packs and put them on a cardboard tray,and then wrapped those.

I don't think I've ever gone through so much unwrapping for candy.

It's been going downhill for a while but I feel it's gotten exponentially worse. Someone made a post under "insane facebook people" which had a picture of a sign on a hospital patient's door that said "please knock before entering I wear a veil". I said "you have to cover your face or Mohammed will smite you!" (which is literally the reason they do it) and the mod perma-banned me for violating a "rule". I called them a power hungry loser and said it was clearly a sarcastic comment...and they responded by calling me a Republican (which confuses the hell out of me) and blocked me from responding to them for 3 days.

Someone else posted in the New York City thread saying "inflation is out of control, this place wants $15 for a bacon, egg and cheese!" and everyone there was supporting the place that charged $15. Any comment OP made was immediately downvoted to hell, regardless of the content.

People were calling someone from a story posted a "pedophile" in another sub because they found an adult (18 years old) attractive. When someone else was like "umm a pedophile is someone that's attracted to pre-pubescent children..." everyone was just like "shut up pedo! You just want to fuck kids!".

Everyone seems to have a hair trigger, is insane, or loves to rage-bait/troll just for the fun of it.
