    yeah it was a pretty good year. i have friends that invest in their own stuff that got high 20s. we actually need to start doing that b/c what i get at work is something i've never put a penny into. its basically free money so i should take my own money and do something with it elsewhere.........errrr let the boss lady do it all like she does now. she's been talking about it and i think this is the year we start it up.

    on a different happy about money note, i got my 2nd biggest ever bonus yesterday. woot.

    You haven’t been putting anything of your own money into a 401K?

    nope. not a 401k though. my employer provided retirement is a trust fund. every employee gets the benefit. its basically one big ass chunk of money, and i own a percentage of it. the percentage is based on how much you make, and how long you've been there. it takes 6 years to become fully vested. it's really weird actually, but it's kinda like a pension. when you retire you get whatever amount you've earned based on your position.

    in short......it's the best benefit i get. i have never put a penny into it, and i have more in retirement than any of my friends with 401ks and IRAs.

    Sweet benefit. I assume all of that is in third party hands so if the company goes under, everyone still gets their cut?

    Not sure why you wouldn’t invest your own pre-tax money into anything though.

    Body weight is almost all diet. Exercise has its own benefits, but a few adjustments to the way you eat can make a big difference. For reference, how tall are you?

    This is tough. I could go a few different ways but I think I'd go:

    Full kitchen, unlimited drugs, library, hygiene, tv, and workout room.

    I'd learn how to be a badass cook, be stoned whenever I want, learn everything, be able to wash up in the shower and brush teeth, have tv for background noise mostly, and obviously gotta have a workout room with basketball court.

    Right at 30 points


    Edit: wanted the 18 year old bit too many points and I'd probably kill her after the first year of being locked up

    My for sure items would be:
    TV 7
    Hygiene 3
    Workshop 6

    Likely:
    Kitchen 6
    Workout 5

    That’s 27.

    Strong candidates:
    Skylight 2
    Dr 2
    Dog 6

    The girl description is pretty creepy sounding but another human to interact with (sex or no sex) would help your mental state tremendously over those 10 years. And I might cut the $10M to $5M to get a couple of extra things because....10 years is a long ass time. And $5M can do me just as well.

    If you pick movies, does it come with a way to play them? I would hope so. lol
    I would pick kitchen, skylight, garden, and pet for sure. Probably movies/tv shows, hygiene products, library, and cell phone. That's 30.

    "Alvarez says her son doesn’t have a mental health issue or an issue with aggression"

    Might want to get a second opinion on that one, lady.

    Who's ready for the return of the XFL? I'm sure @Gcrop is ready for the return of the Memphis Maniax.
