Nice. I haven't had a chance to re-read it yet. Nic is way smarter than I am on this stuff so I'm curious to hear his take as well.

Do you feel like there has been any of the negative risks that people think will happen when you tell them you had an offer yet stayed? Like tension about β€œloyalty”, about if they are looking for other people in case you leave or they want to replace you, etc?


Not even a little.

Care to give how that went down? Interviewed, got offer, used offer for leverage? Or something different?


The offer wasn’t necessarily intended for leverage. I was almost certainly planning on leaving when I initially told them about the offer. In the end I chose to stay, partly due to the weird tech stack of the new company, partly due to strong feelings for the people I currently work with on a daily basis.

I also got a raise recently after getting an offer. The other company offered a higher salary, with an automatic bump after 1 year, but overall benefits were better at current job. No resentment in the end.

20% would definitely do it. My only requirement is fully remote.

Added the additional options to the poll.

Does a contract run out if you step away and then come back? Or will it pick back up as an employee of the Saints if he wants to come back. Will have to be a trade with Dallas, if the latter. 

Not sure. Bet Jerry will give up picks to get him.

justincredible replied to "2021-22 NFL Playoffs thread" at 03:19 pm

I'll say booth in 2022 and Dallas in 2023.

Sean Payton bounces from the Saints.

That said, I'm an absolute re(dact) so anything I say should be dismissed as total nonsense.

No different than 2007-2008. We had the casualties of Iraq and Afghanistan in the news. Russia invaded Georgia, North Korea was launching missiles, and China was feeling itself after hosting Beijing games. Oh, the the global economy tanked. 

I'd also say, today is nothing compared to the daily news or crisis of the late 1960s or early 1970s. 

Well, there is debate when the current turning started (I know, I know, you already dismissed the theory when you were a mere twenty-something). I've seen some say it started 2001 with 9/11, some say 2008 with the crash. So the first part of your post really doesn't dismiss the theory that we're in a period of crisis. In general, the turnings last about 25-30 years so either date fits. I also think there's a good possibility that we're seeing the ending days of the USD as the global reserve currency, which would likely usher in a period of chaos.

Like I said, I find the theory interesting, and given my world view the pieces seem to fit. I'm not a strict adherent or anything, but the probability seems higher than not to me. Regardless, to dismiss it completely seems risky.

I need to mull it over for a while, but I think he's oversimplifying things by quite a bit. Once I get a minute to re-read the piece and think a little deeper I'll check back in with what I think.

An interesting mathematically case for a violent American revolution that I read a few years ago has resurfaced.
