So stupid question: Why do we report annualized GDP every quarter instead of (rather than in addition to?) quarterly GDP?

As far as I can tell, we are just applying a 4x multiplier in a situation where it’s too volatile to make predictions nine months out?

Just watched Tootsie for the first time, it was awesome. Laughed a lot. At one point there was a black dude in a scene and my mom asked if it was the guy from Green Book.

Tootsie was released in 1982. I’m so embarassed

Saw Pianist for the first time last night. Super good but I felt guilty at the end when I saw it was a Polanski movie.

I really want to see Blue is the Warmest Colour but it’s three hours long. No idea when I’ll find a window to watch it alone

Yes. It’s called Monopoly when no one gets a set and no one deals.

It was for a achievement named "Stop it"

more of the achievements or at least the ones that deal directly with building a pc:

But can it run Crysis?
Build a PC with parts costing more than $10k and have it boot to desktop.

If you fail the first time...
BSOD a computer 10 times from overclocking.

1920x1080
Install a Threadripper 1920x and a GTX 1080 or GTX 1080ti.

Overvolted
Break your CPU.

The Best of Both Worlds
Pair an AMD CPU with a NVIDIA GPU

Going loopy
Create a watercooling loop with 5 or more radiators.

You need to plug it in…
Try to use the monitor without plugging in the PC


Easy to forget
Forget to apply thermal paste to the CPU.

jeez 73 people dead, almost 3000 injured. Can't be fireworks. President seems to hint that this was a warehouse that has dangerous stuff in it but I can't find further elaboration. Looks like explosives for sure.

This is what happens when you forget to apply the thermal paste.

In civilized municipalities, you would never be allowed to store that in a non-industrial sector. Crazy that there was that much

Not as big as the Halifax explosion but still insane for a city. Surprised less than 100 people died

I was thinking last night,that capitalism (well all economies) is built on blood and the death of others, mining accidents etc and now with Covid, it's hitting everyone instead of being limited in scope.
