db a couple months ago our team decided against using @Nullable annotations and annotaiton-based null analysis, because we concluded that it adds a lot of unnecessary null-checks to our code. we had examples where there were 60 null checks in a class (and nested checks like requireNonNull(requireNonNull(foo).getBar()) [12:45]
db can anyone share their strong opinion on this topic? I'm curious [12:45]
db because there is this guy who I think was on vacation or something when we made that decision and he is furious. but he never comes up with any good explanation why those null-checks are needed. [12:46]
db like he claims readability but I think the very opposite is the case. [12:46]
db Of course I understand the idea but I just think it doesn't work out very well in reality. [12:50]
Faux Huh? The purpose of the nonnull annotation is to make it obvious that the null check isn't needed, and to reduce them? Adding Nullable everywhere then being surprised that stuff is nullable seems strange. Which way around is it surprising to you? [12:58]
db maybe it is due to the way the framework is set up. all the entities' properties "have to be" nullable (I didn't really look into this but I think it is so that the beans can be created empty and then have their properties set? well, it leads to *having to* check all properties for null even though them being null is not a thing that happens in reality because e.g. vlidation on the REST-side dto makes sure it isn't null [01:01]
db or it is not nullable in the database etc. [01:02]
db I mean I was wondering all along that maybe we're just doing something hugely wrong there. I havent seen this being used before and here it sure wasn't of any help. [01:02]
db well consider ... it sure is nullable. but I know that it is never nullable after I saved an object to the database. I don't want to check it. if it is null then something went wrong and I'm totally fine with getting an NPE. no? [01:10]
db *never null [01:17]
db I mean, when I get an object from the O/R layer I could say "who knows what that thing did, I have to validate all properties" but where does that end [01:18]
sonOfRa Ah yes, the joy of appointments with german bureaucrats [02:50]
sonOfRa Needed a new ID and set my new address [02:51]
sonOfRa Turns out, I still have a "second address" where my parents live (I don't, it's a mistake on their part) [02:51]
sonOfRa I have had that address since September 1st, 1939 (not a typo!) [02:51]
sonOfRa 54 years before I was born [02:51]
scav Well, if you hate it so much, sonOfRa, why don't you go back to where you came from! [02:56]
sonOfRa To the house that I apparently live in since 1939, which was built in 1968, I guess? :D [02:56]
db maybe you can use that somehow [03:01]
db like when applying for vaccination. [03:03]
scav sonOfRa: i don't know what to tell you - yes? :D [03:07]
scav irccloud has this feature? i had no idea - thats cool [03:13]
scav [03:13]
db freenode has usermode +R [03:17]
db but I didn't know that spam detection feature either [03:17]

scav but this spam thing was nice, i clicked the button and i could just mark any message i wanted to delete and never see [03:35]
acuzio morning ladies [03:59]
acuzio another first this week ., I went and told someone on email "I cant look at this now , you will have to come back to me in 2 weeks" . [04:01]
acuzio I have never done that [04:01]
[twisti] good job [04:05]

acuzio I think given that i have been the top-performer in the 3 years i have been here ., its time to actually act like one and go "Sorry , i am slammed" [04:37]
puppy_za finally admit that you are only human [04:39]
acuzio There is that too - [04:40]
Faux Sorry, I can't perform today, I need to be slammed. [04:40]
acuzio yes thank you Faux [04:41]
mbooth sonOfRa: German Government has figured out you are a timelord? [04:43]
Faux Sorry, I can't perform in this position, I need to be slammed. [04:43]
acuzio yes thank you Faux [04:43]
acuzio Welcome to London , UK [04:55]
acuzio acuzio's title: "London has more dollar millionaires than New York | Rich lists | The Guardian" [04:55]
mbooth acuzio: Lol, being a millionaire means nothing if having a one-bed flat you can't liquidate makes you one. [04:57]
acuzio mbooth: Its not just that, i am a lot more peeved by the gap .. the UK has more disparity than the US and this was not the roadmap. [05:02]
acuzio [05:02]
acuzio <------------- No more politics for the day ---------------> [05:15]
Maldivia but... it's independence day [05:18]
db checks date [05:52]
KidBeta [KidBeta!~Kidbeta@hpavc/kidbeta] has joined #java-talk [05:53]
mbooth Maldivia: acuzio talks about politics every day but nothing changes. It's clearly idempotence day. [05:54]
sonOfRa oof [05:55]
sonOfRa that was *terrible* [05:55]
mbooth *I'm* amused by my jokes, and that's all that matters :-D [05:55]
Faux Amen. [05:56]
acuzio I take 1 political story a day and thats it . Theres nothing I can about it but it is what it is [05:59]
acuzio In non-political stories : here is the quote i am getting for Philips MV bulbs ; We are now running into April for trade prices of Spotlights. [06:00]
acuzio And those trade prices have gone up as well ; , just spoke to the advisor and yes its a result of the dreaded "B-word" ;; [06:18]
mbooth Hey you said no more politics [06:21]
acuzio here is the thing , i dont want to engage with politics , i just dont seem to be having an option - [06:30]
acuzio What would you do if you are getting fucked at every junction [06:30]
sonOfRa Buy lube, most like [06:33]
freeone3000 [freeone3000!~kamoricks@Syncleus/dev/freeone3000] has joined #java-talk [06:36]
freeone3000 And I'm back. Pi is now a dedicated IRC server. [06:37]
freeone3000 Nvidia shield is... kind of badass? Like, Android TV is actually a really slick system. And it runs Kodi, so I don't see the point in a dedicated OSMC system anymore. It's also a Chromecast, so I can move my old Chromecast upstairs. And then there's Game Streaming... [06:38]
freeone3000 The remote even has IR for volume! And between that and HDMI-CEC, I have a unified remote and it didn't cost me $200. (Well, it did. But not for just the remote!) [06:39]
[twisti] does anyone understand whats going on with this weird nonsensical spam here today ? [06:39]
acuzio sonOfRa: The process usually goes like this : "talk to the builder,electrician etc. , research what you want , place order based on stock, receive info 3 days later that its now March, April and completely out of scope" ; Start again and this is for every single fucking product. [06:39]
sonOfRa ( [06:39]
acuzio Its just debilitating and really really painful , the worst part of this is I dont understand why what seems to be that no one else can see it [06:40]
acuzio freeone3000: NVidia Sheild is badass ; I am glad that someone else likes it as well cause its not really as popular as it should be [06:42]
acuzio freeone3000: Do you have the Pro or the normal one ? [06:45]
[twisti] im super confused, acuzio. you are debilitated and 'really, really in pain' over half a dozen $7 bulbs ? just buy any random shit off of amazon ? [06:46]
acuzio [twisti]: a) I am not _only_ buying bulbs and its not just half-a-dozen b) This is for every single product i am buying , almost every single product. c) I _dont_ want to buy any random shit off of Amazon. This is my home , i have spent 18 years working towards this . Why am I being deprived off what i want because some fuckers have lied and do not like Brown faces in their supermarkets [06:49]
acuzio This is not just vanity , this is researched stuff that in the longer run is less expensive, more reliable, has better support. As an example , if i look at bulbs , i want "high-CRI, high-lumen" LED bulbs. Why ? Because my eyesight is fucking absolutely terrible. [06:54]
acuzio These specific bulbs have 40,000 hours lifetime , nation wide support, fit into standard GU10 low-profile holders , are extremely high-cri + high-lumen ; I am quite simply unable to find any other bulb that does that , with those specific properties. If there are , I am happy to go and buy them. [06:56]

freeone3000 acuzio: I bought the 2019 Pro, because some people claimed it was better at game streaming and the price difference was $20. [07:09]
sonOfRa freeone3000: ooh, it runs kodi, so it can mount smb shares, right? [07:17]
sonOfRa I hate using our PS4 for streaming video from my hard drives because it only does shitty streaming and can't actually mount network shares [07:17]
sonOfRa dlna they call it, and it just never fucking works right [07:18]
freeone3000 [freeone3000!~kamoricks@Syncleus/dev/freeone3000] has joined #java-talk [07:20]
freeone3000 sonOfRa: Yep! Happily plays off of my NAS. Bonus: It has enough grunt to decode 480p DivX in software! [07:23]
sonOfRa Neat. Might just get one next month or so when the finances look better [07:24]
sonOfRa Actually maybe a >720p TV first. [07:24]
sonOfRa So many things to buy. Also kinda want a washer+dryer combo, but those are *expensive* espcially if you want a dryer that uses a heat pump. [07:26]
freeone3000 There's actually a lot of cheaper devices with the same featureset. I was literally using a rpi for the same thing, and it worked acceptably as long as my content was all h.264, and would probably be better if it was a pi 4 instead of a pi zero. [07:26]
freeone3000 If you don't need the game streaming, get a random Android TV device. [07:26]
sonOfRa Game streaming is nice occasionally [07:27]
sonOfRa But I'm afraid I'll have to be making sensible grown up purchases for a while before I can indulge in these things again [07:28]
freeone3000 Yeah, I feel that. I've got a new dishwasher and a water heater on my list. [07:32]
sonOfRa Still considering maybe buying washing machine and a heat pump dryer separately, but then it's two devices instead of one, which is inconvenient! [07:34]
freeone3000 one device, in that, they share a drum? [07:35]
freeone3000 that's one of those things that I logically assumed would exist, but, I've never actually seen [07:37]
waz [waz!~waz@pdpc/supporter/active/waz] has joined #java-talk [07:37]
sonOfRa yeah [07:39]
sonOfRa However, it looks like the combination I want washer+dryer, and specifically the dryer being a heat pump is only manufactured by AEG [07:40]
sonOfRa And it has wifi, and costs almost 2000? [07:40]
sonOfRa I do not want my washing machine and dryer to have wifi [07:40]
scav why? don't you want to assist in ddos' and bitcoin mining? [07:54]
scav i mean im sure if there actually was a software issue with your toaster, the manufacturer would promptly release an easy to apply OTA fix for it? [07:55]
sonOfRa D [07:56]
sonOfRa always reminds me of this [07:57]
fotato Freeone3000: CEC really did sort of kill the universal remote market tbh. [08:14]
freeone3000 Good! [08:14]
fotato Yeah it?sa mostly good tech [08:14]
puppy_za sonOfRa: I heard that combined (washing machine with dryer) one doesn't work too well. I have them separate. (To be fair, I only use dryer for 3 months in a year. So I could have just get the washing machine) [08:22]
scav haha, sonOfRa 100% :D [08:23]
db Washer+dryers do exist, I have used a coin-operated one in Japan [08:40]
Faux Heh, look at you fancy people living in big houses. My parents own a non-washer-dryer, that's how posh they are. [08:41]
freeone3000 They are just not a thing in NA. Even small houses/condos here use stackable ones instead. [08:42]
mbooth I have separate washer and dryer, but doing so means I sacrificed the dishwasher. I don't mind washing the dishes so this is an acceptible compromise [08:42]
freeone3000 Do Europeans do laundry in the kitchen? [08:43]
mbooth In the UK it's very common yes [08:44]
mbooth Houses are not big enough for a separate room [08:44]
freeone3000 My laundry room is literally a closet. Like. It fits the washer and the dryer and literally nothing else. [08:45]
freeone3000 They're also stacked. But I get that it requires routing a separate water line and a separate exhaust vent, in addition to the kitchen one, so it kind of makes sense to combine them. [08:46]
sonOfRa freeone3000: it really depends on where you have space. If I buy a combo, it'll be in the guest bathroom, simply because that's where the water line is [08:46]
sonOfRa If we end up buying split devices, we'll either stack them, or put the drier in the basement [08:46]
mbooth freeone3000: I've seem a few inter-war houses that have moved the bathroom upstairs and turned the old downstairs bathroom into a laundry/utility space because that's where the plumbing exists [08:46]
freeone3000 (mine shares a wall with the kitchen, so they got to be lazy in that precise way.) [08:46]
freeone3000 sonOfRa: *just* the drier? no wonder you'd find a separate unit inconvenient! [08:47]
sonOfRa They do driers with outlet hoses, and driers with a water container, so you can put the drier up independently of water [08:47]
sonOfRa With stacks I'm always afraid a device may fall off [08:48]
freeone3000 Eight years no incidents! two manufacturers! no issues! the dryer being on top and lighter helps. [08:49]
Faux My sister's house is fancy, her kitchen is big enough that she's managed to hand a curtain across a corner, to keep the poor people appliances in. [08:49]
mbooth I assume you'd put a wall anchor in, in case an uneven loads might otherwise walk it off the cliff edge :-) [08:49]
freeone3000 mbooth: putting in a wall anchor will absolutely just rip holes in your wall and possibly shear the anchor [08:50]
Faux Are dryers significantly lighter than washing machines, due to lower spin rates? I don't really know. [08:50]
Faux Maybe they are higher spin rates. [08:50]
freeone3000 Faux: They're lighter due to not having a giant drum full of water. [08:50]
mbooth Faux: Washing machine has a concrete block in it [08:50]
Faux Yeah, but the concrete block is because of the heavy spinning stuff. [08:50]
mbooth Dryer does not [08:50]
Faux It still does the heavy spinning stuff, so I'd expect it to require counterweightance. [08:51]
mbooth Apparently not [08:51]
mbooth I can lift my dryer. I can only drag my washer [08:51]
Faux Heh. Sold. [08:51]
db A dryer spins slowly [08:52]
db A washer spins >1000rpm [08:52]
mbooth And crucially does not fill with water ;-) [08:52]
scav I love this quote: "Simply put, a data warehouse is a centrally managed, high-performance, scalable data repository for the enterprise that stores and models large quantities of current and historical data from multiple data sources for reporting and analytics. " [08:52]
db During spinning, water is drained [08:53]
freeone3000 And even then, a drum full of wet clothing is still going to be cheaper than *checks notes* *100L* of water [08:53]
scav I mean, thanks for making it simple [08:53]
freeone3000 4.4 cu ft. [08:53]
db Data whorehouse [08:53]
mbooth scav: A data warehouse is where Lt Geordie Laforge gets spare parts for his co-worker [08:53]
Faux We had a talk where someone said "data lake" and "data mart", and explained the difference. [08:54]
scav mbooth: hahaha :D [08:54]
scav mbooth++ [08:54]
scav mbooth has a karma level of 73, scav [08:54]
Faux A data mart is where you can buy pre-packaged water in bottles. [08:54]
mbooth scav: You said yourself: "For the Enterprise" [08:54]
Faux (From the lake.) [08:54]
freeone3000 Faux: the former's a columnular store, the latter's a oltp set of queries. [08:54]
Faux Oh, you mean, bigquery, and, uh, bigquery? [08:55]
freeone3000 in azure terms, that's Azure Data Lake and... Azure Data Lake. [08:55]
scav mbooth: yeah, i walked right into that one [08:55]
Faux <3 [08:55]
Faux Also known as "data money incinerator" and "data money incinerator with unexpected downtime". [08:55]
freeone3000 I wouldn't know. (We pay for Azure usage in imaginary money.) [08:56]
scav Faux: the amount of bullshit buzzwords in that field is just staggering [08:56]
freeone3000 Well, you can't fit it into SQL Server. Except you can, because Azure Data Lake is *backed by SQL Server* because SQL Server is kind of insane. [08:56]
Faux Maybe we can sell them some CD or some DoI. [08:56]
Faux Yes, I typed Dependency of Injection. Do you think French has rekt my brain? [08:57]
mbooth Faux: Yes. [08:57]
scav I am as confused as you are, Faux [08:57]
freeone3000 Mais, non, les langue francois n'est puet pas REKT non des cerebres. [08:58]
freeone3000 Though that would explain quebec. [08:58]
freeone3000 Alright, placed an order for DualShock 4 batteries (since one of my first-gens now has a dead battery). Off to work! [08:59]
Faux goes to a meeting which is supposed to actually be a meeting instead of a presentation, but has 176 invitees. [08:59]
scav pukes [09:01]
scav i hate days like today, i have no inspiration, i don't want to do anything [09:02]
scav should probably call it a day and just do something else [09:02]
mbooth Faux: You can't possibly participate, so take advantage of the time to go make some coffee, scratch your balls, whatever. [09:02]
fotato Condenser dryers exist which don?t need exhausts, freeone3000 [09:03]
fotato would always recommend separate appliances though. You can pipeline loads. [09:03]
fotato Plus if one breaks at least you have the other. [09:03]
mbooth Annoyingly I can't plumb in my condenser to the drain. Emptying 5kg of water periodically is mandatory [09:04]
Faux I don't know where our dryer exhausts. [09:05]

sonOfRa Nice, looks like I'm going back to 100% rather than 80% work as of march 1st [09:35]
acuzio yes thank you fotato [09:36]
puppy_za that sounds like job security [09:36]
puppy_za I am glad we are still on the dryer conversation [09:37]
acuzio mbooth: thats one of the changes i made ., i dont like having laundry in the kitchen so have a separate utility room - that has washer , dryer, separate drying cupboard ; She thinks this is stupid ; I dont agree [09:38]
mbooth If you are the one doing the laundry, then fair enough [09:39]
puppy_za which part of it is stupid? [09:39]
acuzio In NY for a long time i just went downstairs and put laundry in the common washer and well that worked [09:39]
acuzio puppy_za: She grew up in Edinburgh and having washer+dryer + dishwasher next to each other is standard practice [09:40]
puppy_za oh [09:40]
puppy_za I have the washer and dishwasher next to each other (because of the tap location) [09:41]
puppy_za dryer can really be anywhere that is close to a window or a ventilation point [09:41]
acuzio In my other flat thats exactly how it is as well - This time i decided to do something else [09:41]
puppy_za although I must say, it's convenient to have the dryer next to the washer [09:43]
scav sonOfRa: nice dude :D [09:49]
scav sonOfRa: was your pay reduced by 20% as well? [09:49]
sonOfRa not quite; the short work scheme from the govt covers 80% of the net income loss you take from the reduced work [09:50]
sonOfRa But it's still going to be something like 150 to 200? a month that I'll have extra [09:51]
sonOfRa And I still need to do my taxes, the taxes are a bit wonky around the extra short work money you get from the govt [09:51]
scav damn [09:54]
scav can't they just do that for you? [09:54]
scav taxes here in norway has been automated by this thing called computers for generations now [09:54]
fotato Always had a separate utility room growing up. It?s ace. [09:54]
fotato A sink, cleaning supplies, washer/dryer [09:55]
mbooth scav: Even for self-employed/freelances/contractors? [09:56]
fotato my parents house in Greece has a whole second kitchen as the utility room. Which I?ll admit is somewhat overkill. I think the previous owners had like. Servants or something. [09:56]
scav mbooth: no, not everything, but i dont know the details on that [09:56]
scav we have a parent company that pays our "salary" so we are taxed as normal employees [09:57]
Faux UMBRELLAH AH AH [09:57]
scav but there is more work, absolutely [09:57]
fotato Christ I hate people who don?t use the outlook scheduler when sending invites. Cue Gatling gun invite/update/cancel/invite/update stream [09:57]
mbooth scav: Hey, is it true that the Norwegian Navy puts QR-codes on their ships? So that when they come into port they can scan da navy in? [09:58]
scav dude rofl [09:58]
puppy_za that's funny [10:00]
fotato mbooth. Resident Dad. [10:02]
sonOfRa scav: it's mostly done for you, except for edge cases like this [10:06]
sonOfRa The whole short work stuff is mostly in case of really bad economic things happening [10:06]
sonOfRa Like, ya know, global pandemic [10:06]
scav i wonder how long we can keep these things up though [10:07]
scav norwegian economy is totally fucked long term after this, i cannot imagine germany is doing any better [10:07]
scav though, in our case it is just as much a case of population shrinking [10:07]
fotato Fake news [10:09]
fotato covid is a liberal hoax [10:09]
mbooth hoax is a literal covid [10:10]
mbooth When will we become a post-post-truth society? [10:10]
fotato Is that when we realise truth is good again? [10:12]
fotato I dunno man. Saw a clip off OANN where they were just. Taking the piss out of Biden?s dog. [10:13]
fotato Who makes fun of dogs? [10:13]
mbooth Even Hitler liked dogs. [10:13]
mbooth Literally worse than Hitler [10:14]
scav Never, if 2020 taught me anything, its that we are concerned with facts and digging for the actual truth on youtuber. [10:14]
fotato They were like THIS DOG DOES NOT LOOK HEALTHY [10:15]
fotato bitch. It?s old. [10:15]
fotato It?s just an old GSD. It looked perfectly healthy. [10:15]
mbooth HAHA, because Trump was the picture of health [10:15]
ron bitch. I'm old [10:15]
fotato Right? [10:15]
fotato Such double standards. [10:15]
fotato Ron, you?re not old. You?re vintage. [10:15]
mbooth "Legacy" [10:16]
fotato Also I have good friends way older than you. [10:16]
ron oh10qbb [10:16]
ron at least you have good friends [10:16]
fotato What the fuck is that password string. [10:17]
scav oh, ron is awake [10:18]
scav here to spread happiness and joy [10:18]
mbooth I think it's IYVE (Internet Yobbo Vernacular English) [10:18]
fotato mbooth they were doing this while Texans were literally freezing to death and Cruz was in cancun too. [10:18]
ron will you be my good friend scav [10:18]
mbooth fotato: Quelle surprise [10:18]
fotato No I?ll be your good friend fotato [10:18]
fotato commas. How do they work? [10:19]
mbooth pfm [10:19]
mbooth pure fucking magic [10:19]
ron comas how do they work [10:19]
mbooth Just -: , throw em , anywhere :- [10:21]
fotato easy there, christophuzio walken [10:22]
mbooth The acuzio theory of punctuation: "More punctuation is more better." [10:22]
mbooth That's just science [10:23]
fotato "More punctuation - is More better,." [10:23]
fotato FTFY [10:23]
mbooth Thanks babydoll [10:23]
ron did youu mean - that's just more science? [10:23]
fotato maybe acuzio is just always writing clojure [10:29]
acuzio yes thank you fotato [10:30]
ron managed to kill my mac, had to restart [10:30]
ron but I'm back so you can relax [10:30]
fotato you didnt kill it, you just knocked it out. [10:30]
fotato i'm always relaxed dude. [10:31]
fotato well, FSVO relaxed [10:31]
ron yeah right [10:31]
fotato i mean sure, slowly going blind in one eye and losing multiple family members in the space of a few weeks does raise the relax baseline somewhat. [10:32]
acuzio re: Taxes : The UK Gov has a great website for this except its only understandable to accountants so there are other apps that make it better and guess what , the fucking API for the thing is a nightmare . the worse part is you submit taxes , the app says "Yo taxes submitted, here is proof from HMRC" , HMRC goes "Sorry, taxes , what taxes , please to pay" . I am like "fuck this2 [10:32]
ron re taxes? are you bitching about taxes again? [10:33]
fotato acuzio i used gosimpletax to file my UK taxes. it was pretty straightforward [10:33]
acuzio why are you going blind fotato ; (other than the usual reason) [10:33]
ron man, you're just like the rest of those republicans [10:33]
fotato the usual reason being? [10:33]
acuzio ron: STFU [10:33]
ron why because you're a republican? [10:33]
acuzio fotato: too much masturbation - have you not read your fucking scriptures [10:33]
fotato acuzio: i have CRVO in my right eye which caused a macular edema which i got treatment for. [10:33]
fotato but it's a bandaid untnil we can identify potential root causes. [10:34]
ron have you tried not being a republican? [10:34]
mbooth An immaculate enema? [10:34]
fotato macular. [10:34]
fotato fluid between retina and eyeball wall. [10:34]
ron drink more fluids [10:35]
fotato untreated will result in total loss [10:35]
acuzio that suckx dude [10:35]
fotato they bandaid it by injecting a drug originally used for chemo directly into the eyeball [10:35]
fotato ironically two of the potential side effects are 'vision loss, retinal detachment' [10:35]
acuzio facepalms [10:35]

acuzio yes thank you ron [10:42]
acuzio In other news , Teenage girls are terrifying [10:43]

ron giiiiiiiiiiirl [10:43]
sonOfRa guuuuuuurl [10:43]

sonOfRa Last 2 rooms though, then we can hand over keys to old place and get our deposit back! [10:58]
scav nice, will you be painting more at the new place? [10:59]
fotato acuzio: you're rich you should be paying an accountant anyway [11:08]
freeone3000 I paid an accountant once. Cost me $5000 for them to basically ask me for a bunch of information and all they did was fill out some forms for me. No thanks. [11:08]
fotato mine only cost like ú500? [11:09]
fotato and it gives you legal protection from doing it wrong. [11:09]
ron did you mean lol protection? [11:10]
freeone3000 I mean, so does mine, but the legal protection is... unncessary? Like, I got audited, and all that happened was a guy from the IRS called me and asked me some questions and told me I filled out a form wrong and told me to fill it out better next time. [11:10]
freeone3000 He was actually nicer to me than my actual accountant was. [11:11]
freeone3000 Oh, and I had to pay back the $3000 from the year I earned income but forgot to file taxes. [11:11]
fotato yeah i man [11:12]
fotato mean [11:12]
fotato my situation is probably a little more complicated? [11:12]
ron flex [11:12]
fotato not at all, freeone3000 is probably richer than me. [11:12]
freeone3000 It's possible. But I'm a homeowner with dual tax residency and income streams in both countries. [11:13]
freeone3000 If you've got a business, yours is worse for sure. [11:13]
mbooth What are the tax implications of being a homeowner? [11:13]
freeone3000 mbooth: ZOUNDS. [11:13]
mbooth I mean, I'm a homeowner, but it has no bearing on my income tax. [11:14]
freeone3000 then you don't pay tax in the US or Canada, there's like a hundred line items modified by this. [11:14]
mbooth o_O [11:15]
freeone3000 for instance, my mortgage interest is tax-deductible but only the interest on the first $250,000 of the loan. [11:15]
mbooth Is it because your home is your place of business? [11:16]
freeone3000 no. that's treated separate. [11:16]
mbooth boggles [11:17]
freeone3000 it's to encourage home ownership, but it's also means-tested, because it was introduced by democrats. [11:17]
freeone3000 you should see the marriage incentives! they're even more insane! [11:17]
ron umm [11:18]
ron I think google just suggested I get a beehive hairdo [11:18]
mbooth ron: More like a hairdon't, amiright? [11:18]
ron asked google what's my schedule, it said I have a haircut and that beehives are back in style ? [11:19]
deepy It might also have suggested that you become a beekeeper [11:23]
deepy honey is delicious and never goes out of style [11:24]
tang^ mead might be an accompanying hobby [11:25]
fotato Ron would look fabulous with a beehive ?do [11:25]

fotato they're called hamentashen, freeone3000 [12:40]
fotato someone put a space in and spellcheck chose the one which wasnt hymen. [12:40]
acuzio fotato exactly what freeone3000 said ., re : accountant and in my case the worst part was he filed it wrongly and I was liable for the fines. 16K in 2015 [12:47]
acuzio and freeone3000 is also right with dual homeowner and dual citizenship and dual income streams ; its fucking mad and accountants dont really help ; You have to understand this shit [12:49]

Samian hello [04:30]

freeone3000 oh you don't have access to fine-grained data [04:30]
fotato acuzio: i'll make it easy for you - hire me! [04:31]
freeone3000 scav: [04:31]
fotato and ron! [04:31]
Samian freeone3000 I just applied for a job at Microsoft. Quick question, one of the questions was whether I have a disability, noting that Microsoft tries to maintain a certain % of employee with disability in order to get gov benefits. Do you know if interviewers see that info and what the impact is? [04:31]
ron don't hire me [04:31]
ron nobody wants to hire me [04:31]
fotato i'd hire you, ron [04:31]
scav freeone3000: i do, i just didn't bother checking as norwegian markets have been closed for 6 hours. i did not notice that nice [04:31]
fotato no idea what for. [04:31]

fotato s/DJI/SPDR/ [04:33]
scav i prefer to not have stocks in foreign markets because it means im "on" 12,5h a day, and i just can't do that [04:34]
freeone3000 most people who buy stocks just buy stocks and sort of ... let them sit. [04:34]
freeone3000 I'm interested, though, since that means you don't have exposure to NYSE. [04:34]
scav i do, at times, just not all year around [04:37]
scav i mean i buy stocks, but i also buy warrants, calls, etc - i just like to gamble i guess [04:38]
scav GME @ 133? wth [04:39]

ron yiddish indeed [05:01]
ron it is not delicious no [05:02]
scav yiddish? explain please [05:02]
freeone3000 in what way do you mess up a fruit-filled cookie? [05:02]
sonOfRa scav: yiddish is kind of somewhere between german and hebrew, spoken by a lot of jewish people, mainly in europe, not sure how much yiddish there is in the US [05:04]
scav thanks [05:04]
ron yiddish is still alive, but it's definitely a dying language [05:04]
freeone3000 it's a thing. mostly in new york. quebec seems to have missed it. [05:05]
