Confused owner of a an S-Corp

2016 is the first year that my LLC will elect to be taxed as an S Corp.

Salary is based on degree status. What do you currently make?

Pretty basic. Applied for a job in a technical field. It said, degree required so I was surprised I got an email and it looked like a three person interview set up pretty quickly. Then it got weird. [more inside]

Name that song, episode eleventy billion and one

I can't remember the title, artist, or lyrics, so this is a shot in the dark. It was an Americana song, female sung. It was possibly more toward the Iris DeMent/John Prine end of that spectrum than the alt.country end. It was a somewhat comedic story song recounting the lust and excitement of a young couple saving themselves for marriage. [more inside]

RIP Gawker, I need a new site to read

Would you like to play a (PC) game?

I'm not a gamer, I don't have a console, I do have a laptop, I've been stress eating because of the US election, and I need something to do for a couple hours at a time here and there to get my mind off of this dumpster fire that isn't "eating my weight in ice cream while weeping." But I know nothing about current games out there. The absolute snowflakiest game recommendation request within. [more inside]

What is this engimatic equipment buried in a stream bank?

You can view the equipment here. I took this photo of some old equipment embedded in the bank of Crane Creek in Crane, Missouri. I'm wondering if it might relate to the numerous tomato canning plants that operated there in the 1920s and 30s. It appears to be possibly a conveyor belt (?) They used those in the factories, I know.

AVG Fail

Has anyone had luck getting a refund from AVG? I paid $199.99 on 6/23 for AVG Go tech support, but they weren't able to fix my aged computer. On 7/14, I got an e-mail saying my refund request had been approved, but the money still hasn't come back into my account. I've called and called. Any other suggestions?

Chinese puns poster online?

Someone made a cool image illustrating some large number (more than 30 but less than 100?) of puns/proverbs/idioms in Chinese (I think Mandarin, but don't remember.) There was a key in English to each of the puns/proverbs/idioms, but the image had no words on it. Naturally, I lost the bookmark and can't find it now that I want to show someone else. Can you help?

How do cities in your country provide important foreign language info?

I’m from the US working at a city government in Japan, and I want to know how local governments in other countries handle providing important information in residents’ native languages. For example, let’s say a city in your country wants to distribute information about where residents should evacuate in the event of a flood. How does that city reach residents who don’t yet speak the local language? [more inside]

What can you tell me about this china cabinet and buffet set?

ISO Bag or Pouch for Discreet Carriage/Storage of Diabetic Paraphernalia

I am a man with diabetes. I need to have easy access to all of my gear (pens, needles, monitor, strips, pills, etc.). I have a desk job (business attire required), but my weekends and evenings are spent all over the place. I can occasionally use my wife's purse as a holder- but that still means a bunch of loose stuff floating around in the jumble of her purse. What can I use to contain and keep all my stuff with me and still fit in around the office and town?

Careers related to women's sexuality and health?

Lately, I've noticed that I am very passionate about things having to do with sexuality, especially women’s sexuality and health. What careers exist related to this passion? So far I've thought of a nurse practitioner specializing in women's health, a certified nurse midwife, a pelvic physical therapist, an ob/gyn, and an industrial designer specializing in sexuality or women's health (if that job even exists). What are these careers like on a day-to-day basis? What other careers relating to sexuality are out there? Would any of these careers work for me? Snowflakes inside. [more inside]

Why is July the hottest month *worldwide*?

I just read this article that says July 2016 was Earth's hottest month in recorded history. And the same article notes that: "NASA's five hottest months on record are July 2016, July 2011, July 2015, July 2009 and August 2014. Only July 2015 was during an El Nino. Records go back to 1880." The data relate to the global average temperature, not just the parts that are having summer in July. So why are the global averages being pulled up especially during the northern hemisphere's summer? [more inside]

Delicious Dog Food

Help me make the most out of my $100 enameled cast iron pot!

I just put down $100 on a new pot that's 4-quart capacity, and oval-shaped. It seems that before I got it, every single recipe called for an enameled cast iron pot for a braised this and a braised that. (Sometimes even bread!) So, please share with me your absolute favorite recipes that have to be made in a cast iron pot. I'm already eyeing a lamb shank recipe with pomegranate molasses.

fitting new range between counter tops

We are looking to buy a new oven/stove that is 30" wide, but the spot that it will go is going to be 34" wide, which leaves a 2" gap on each side, in the middle of a longer counter. Is there a way to do this such that it will not look too weird, without redoing all of our counter tops and lower cabinets? It would have to be more cosmetic than structural, as that width is pretty much a given.

Appropriate to knit during classical music concert?

I am going to a classical music concert tonight at a fancy venue. It's a 2 hour concert indoors with assigned seating and I would absolutely love to bring my knitting with me. I am not sitting anywhere near the front, I will be sitting in the main orchestra level. I would be using bamboo needles, which don't make any sounds and aren't reflective. Is it rude to fellow concertgoers to be knitting openly during the concert?
