cis is literally a chemistry term, also. it just means one side of an isomeric molecule. hence, "beat him with a chemistry textbook" because cisgender came from the organic chemistry context as far as the prefix is concerned.

I thought chemistry and gender uses both just came from the Latin “cis-“ prefix meaning “on same side” with an opposite of “trans-“ meaning on other side, like “cisalpine” did as well. I hadn’t heard that the gender usage had been informed by chemistry terminology at all. Where did you encounter that?

E: oh, there were more posts transpagebreak

My understanding in dealing with people who have high income is that donations are one method to ensure you stay below certain tax thresholds; then claimed as a tax deduction. E.g - earned $100k this year? You might go into the 'high earner' threshold and have to pay a higher percentage of income tax than someone who was in the medium threshold, but if you donate a large portion of your income - enough to keep you below that threshold - you pay less income tax.

This is not how tax brackets work. Unless there is outright fraud, donations to an arms-length charity can never leave you with more money in your pocket than not donating it, or if you have a greater than 100% marginal tax rate (which I don’t think is the case anywhere in the world, not that it’s necessarily a terrible idea).

Ruffian Price posted:

It is baffling that makers of those ridiculously overpriced clothes still rush to save fractions of a cent on production. Why even care at that price point when you're barely improving margins?

I think it's caused by a couple of things, based on some discussions I had with people adjacent to the space:

- the production lines are set up with certain suppliers and techniques, and changing them to be higher quality can involve a lot more cost and delay than just the increase in materials or slight additional time to produce

- the person who is responsible for managing to a budget for production is often very far from the person who "gets" the money from sales, organizationally, and may have fixed budget elements for components of production independent of the item, except for the elements that are "supposed to" be invested in

I have no way to actually evaluate whether any of that is accurate, but the fashion-production-adjacent people I talked with left me with that impression, many moons ago

My inclination is to assume someone whining about the number of counties like that person was is being disingenuous, but I suppose they could also be sincerely confused about the difference between physical bigness and population bigness.

In the case of county-counting, it could easily be by analogy with the US Senate, which counts political divisions rather than population or land area.

Am I missing something or is this guy boasting that he's kind of a big deal and claiming to personally owning a cool $32k as evidence of that?

If your family is worth $134M and your savings as an adult is $32K, then you are not very close to the financial centre of gravity of your family’s enterprises. (Nobody whose immediate family is worth that much would say “$134M” either; that level of precision is for smaller holdings and celebrity-tracking sites.)
