Back in April 2017, I spent a week in California. We have to bill our time to codes and that code was zoned to California. Because of that, I was considered to have earned five days of income in California and, subsequently, my firm gave me a damn W-2 for that one single week in California.

I wonder if that would be the same situation for professional athletes like basketball or baseball players. Would they have to file a tax return for every single state in which they play a game because they are earning revenue in each of those states?

No, because they're rich and they don't have to. Fuck you poor people who pay your taxes and ask questions.

Yea, my thoughts exactly. At least my firm gives me all TurboTax states for free or I would have had to pay another $20 just to prepare the California tax return.

Isn't the entire point of taxes to keep the poor exactly that?

They absolutely do. It's usually referred to as the "Jock Tax".

It should come as no surprise it was California that started it back in the 90's, imposing taxes on Michael Jordan's Chicago Bulls when they beat the Lakers in the NBA Finals. Chicago then retaliated by taxing visiting teams from California - and it snowballed from there.

I think there's only about 2 or 3 states that don't apply such a tax.

The "Jock tax" sounds like another tax for rich people writing off their escorts as business expenditures.

I have been using the "Free No-Rush Shipping" option on Amarzon for my last couple of orders because the stuff I bought were not fragile nor perishable and Amarzon offered me a $1 credit toward digital purchases if I used it. No-rush shipping typically has an estimated delivery date of about five days longer than two-day shipping.

Anyways, both orders I made came within two days plus I got the no-rush shipping bonus of $1 credit toward digital purchases. So I now have $2 credit and my orders were shipped the same speed as two-day shipping.

I used to do the same thing but when I would select No Rush and they would give Prime Pantry credits. I think it was like $5 for every order I no rushed and it was always on tech and tools. I racked up hundreds worth of free food over a few months.

God damn, that is a good deal. I remember those $5 Pantry credits but I never used the service so I did not take advantage of that.

I'm going to start using the no-rush shipping option now for things which are not fragile (like my precious blu-rays). Rack up the credits and buy cool digital shit on Amarzon.

I didn't really set out to collect so much in Pantry credits cause it wasn't a service I ever used but since I was doing so much shopping at the time with multiple large orders a week, I just figured why not since it's free money and after a few months I had hundreds of dollars in food credits so I used em.

Avicii died today. Well, I'm writing this at 12:39am, Saturday morning, so I suppose I can say "yesterday". But then again, some of you guys are on the West Coast so it's still "today". Russ is in Australia so for him it is "yesterday".

I'm tired. I need to go to sleep.
