We grant our pets euthanasia if all they can still expect from life is
suffering. Why not ourselves?


Americans? Do you not live in America?

Hit: Canada and Mexico are also in "America".


No. We are in North America. Canadians and Mexicans do not think of
themselves as American.


Well, Canada surely is in North America.


So is Mexico.

on sale, buy one get one free 10 LB bags for $5 on Thanksgiving... I ate
a lot of potatoes in November... lol


Your Idaho potatoes should also come with a specific potato name, like
maybe Russets.

Anyway, your sale deal...20 pounds of potatoes for $5? That's the best
potato deal I've heard of in many years. They can also be cooked and
frozen for future meals if they start to go bad.

Potatoes here are often 5 pound BOGO.
To prevent spoilage I turn some into latkes or potato nik.

Rather than grating potatoes I put them through my meat grinder with a
large hole plate... fast and no bloody knuckles... grind the onion
last after draining some potato liquid. Latkes and nik freeze well. I
like potato nik cold from the fridge.

Yes, I was surprised at that sale too. I guess the store stocked up on
too many for Thanksgiving. Perhaps they were Russets, I'm not sure.
Just regular looking baking potatoes.

Probably russets. The expectation is that most people make mashed
potatoes to go with Thanksgiving dinner. Probably not 10 pounds worth
unless they have a huge family gathering. Purely a guess on my part,
they fully expected the pandemic to be over so they over-bought potatoes
and had to do the BOGO thing.

That's probably about right. I wish I though of freezing some. I ended
up just giving the other bag away.

In article ,
US Bureau of Economic Analysis published a study that provides exactly that

for 2010. Combined with World Bank data for the same year, these datasets show
that the poorest 20 percent of US households have higher average consumption
per person than the averages for all people in most nations of the OECD and
Europe:
[Click on the URL for comparison chart, the poorest 20% of Americans have

higher consumption levels of goods/services than "wealthy" nations such as
Canada, Sweden, UK...]
The high consumption of America?s ?poor? doesn?t mean they live better than

average people in the nations they outpace, like Spain, Denmark, Japan, Greece,
and New Zealand. This is because people?s quality of life also depends on their
communities and personal choices, like the local politicians they elect, the
violent crimes they commit, and the spending decisions they make.
For instance, a Department of Agriculture study found that US households

receiving food stamps spend about 50 percent more on sweetened drinks,
desserts, and candy than on fruits and vegetables. In comparison, households
not receiving food stamps spend slightly more on fruits & vegetables than on
sweets.
Nonetheless, the fact remains that the privilege of living in the US affords

poor people more material resources than the averages for most of the world?s
richest nations."

/Every dataset is only as good as its cross-section. If Americans living

below the poverty line were excluded, statistical analysis would indeed
conclude that poor people consume more than analogous folks within the same
socioeconomic bracket in developed nations. However, plenty of Americans cannot
afford any of the items mentioned in this study: mobile phones, microwaves,
computers, automobiles, etc. If they can, they are often of much poorer quality
than middle-class Americans can afford.
Therefore, two issues are fundamental he the poverty level included in this
economic study and the quality of goods consumed by the poorest people.

Who decides what each worker's time, labor and expertise are worth? In most

that all too often either disadvantages or entirely eliminates us. I'm totally
blind with an ivy league Ph.D. in music theory. No institution has been willing
to take a chance and hire me, ostensibly because I lack collegiate teaching
experience. Well, to all the search committee smarty-pants, how is any
candidate supposed to acquire requisite experience if every institution denies
them employment? Are we supposed to build our own universities in order to give
ourselves teaching experience?



You did not know about the "real world" requirements - in this case, collegiate teaching experience - before you pursued your Ph.D.?

Hopefully, someone will be bold enough to take a chance on you. I love bold people - they are people worth working for. Chicken shit people are the worst people to work for and with.

Ivy league Ph.D in music theory is certainly something to be proud of
but has limited employment opportunities.

My thoughts:
- take some teaching classes/credits

- maybe your alma matter will let you be a teaching
assistant even if just a volunteer at first to get experience.

- offer your time to a community college for a bit just to get teaching
experience. My local community college often hires experts in the field
to teach certain classes. They have no "teaching" credits but they do
thoroughly know the subject and they are given guidelines of what to teach.
