Since you responded I was looking for an article I read a year or so ago about travel and bookings as it spoke to it. There was a study done on occupancy of hotel rooms, VRBO, Airbnb, etc around major events.

Days prior there was a steady increase in occupancy starting from 3 days prior and obviously spiked the night before and night of said event.   The dropoff the day after the event was like an anvil off a cliff aimed at the roadrunner.  It was believed that is how most people fray the cost of a trip.   The article was suggesting for those who do have VRBO/airbnb, etc to offer a significant decrease in the price the night after big events that bring a lot of people into town.  I showed it to my buddy who has about a dozen different places and he pretty much agreed that is the bookings go and he has sig lowered his prices and has had a little bit more success than before.

In thinking of my bookings where the destination was a concert, game, or some sort of one day event I found myself doing the same thing.   Arrive a day or two early, attend and then pop smoke that next day.  

Fair enough.  I mean, I'm sure the numbers actually back it out, and I'm sure they pay people to crunch those numbers, so as much as I was griping about the time as well, they're much better equipped to figure out when they should have the games than I am.

I hate it when my wife and son are arguing and she is dead wrong but I don't want her to turn on me so I have to throw the boy under the bus.

Anyone read about these Senators who sold a bunch of stock after they were briefed on Corona virus intelligence - weeks before the pandemic started here?  If true, hopefully some insider trading charges in their futures.

Agreed.   Gee, I wonder why people don't trust Congress.

That's the guy who can't fly commercial because of the demons in the plane - he needed a private jet. Special place in hell for guys like this. You can say that those who give to him deserve to lose their money. But a good chunk are elderly or people not in their right mind.

This "Christian" pastor (and I use both of those terms lightly here) apparently hasn't read the Bible.

 

Tithing is 10% of what you earn, if you are laid off and earn $0, 10% of $0 is still $0.

They all need investigated immediately. Loeffler contends she doesn't manage her money, but her husband is the Chairman of the freaking NYSE.

I did not, but I would definitely be able to read about it with a LINK!

Kenneth Copeland is the lowest of the low.  Absolute scum.

Nevermind 'Eat the rich', which is problematic in and of itself.

Eat the politicians.

For all of the knocking on the press we do, I am grateful that stories like this get out there.  These rat bastards deserve to be exposed for crap like this.

Until we get through this situation, it'd be nice to take a pause on extreme right wing conspiracies. Coronaviris isn't from a North Carolina lab, it wasn't from a secret Wuhan military lab, it is not related to the 5G tollout, your toilet paper supply chain is not going to be disrupted and the media and Democrats didn't engineer it to bring down Trump.
