First, I started with this book, and recommend it to everyone who is planning a wedding. It kept me so organized, and I bought the hardcover binder so I could take out pages I didn't need and add hole punched pages from Excel or Word, magazines, whatever. I kept all my contracts in there and correspondence.

I had a caterer that included tables, chairs, tablecloths, napkin, cutlery, and glasses, along with the food. That helped a ton. They also had a bar that I paid for because I couldn't have a wedding without an open bar on principal.

I got a DJ, officiant, photographer, cake maker, and day of coordinator. That's all you need if your caterer can do all that other stuff. If you ask, those companies have lists of other vendors they recommend so you don't have to go into this extensive online search. You just look through their lists and see who clicks for you.

For flowers, I looked up a wholesale flower warehouse locally, and ordered a shitload of flowers. It was so cheap. I got them the morning of. My centerpieces were vases and jars and I just had someone assigned to stick that shit in there the day of. It was very minimalist and very pretty. Just find a picture online of a centerpiece you like and stick to it, don't try to go crazy. I made my bouquets and boutonniere's out of paper flowers, which I do not recommend unless you like folding paper for hours on end every night for months. It was pretty, but 0/10 would recommend.

I recommend going to Home Depot and going to the paint section, and pulling coordinating swatches for color inspirations. This helped me greatly when picking flowers and decorations and bridesmaids dresses.

When you ask people for help, get everyone's contact info and ask what day works for everyone, and say, "This is the day we're meeting. See you then." Provide drinks. They will help you do anything for drinks. Same goes for coordinating when you're picking out bridesmaids dresses and whatnot. Just plan it yourself, don't let other people try to figure it out.

I signed up for Wedding Paper Diva's mailing list, and googled coupon codes, and saved a ton of money. I know it's expensive, but I bought save-the-dates, invitations, RSVPs, and thank you cards all at the same time. It was just easier not to worry about it.

Other miscellany you need will be included in that wedding binder link, such as rings, cake utensils, what gifts to give who, etc. The only thing I forgot the day of was pins to put the boutonnieres on the men lol. Somebody found some, so it worked out.

I know this is a lot, but I hope it helps you. Also, check out r/weddingplanning. They're awesome over there.

If this is your first programming language its a tad unfortunate that it has to be C++ but by no means does it mean it is bad or anything. In fact its the language most aspiring computer scientists started out with in college prior to the 2000s.

You can start off with
Programming: Principles and Practice Using C++
and then going onto The C++ Programming Language, 4th Edition after completing the first one. There is also C++ Primer that is also highly recommended as another book for starting out.

A book along with web searches when you have questions will get you pretty far. Having someone to ask questions if you get stuck on something conceptually is also useful. The best advice I can give you is to really play around with the language as you are learning and do most of the practice exercises too. Stroustrup also has solutions to the exercises from the first book I mentioned online. Hopefully you have some months available to learn the language. On top of that you might need to learn some computer science topics like data structures as well. You just can't rush these things but you can accelerate it a little.

As for me, my C++ knowledge is 'rusting away' by the day. I learned the STL with C++ when it was made official only a couple years after (like over 10 years ago). Nowadays you have Boost and the language itself has changed. I have not presently needed to update my C++ knowledge to what is latest and greatest but I shall.

Also worth pointing out is that In my experience, when you work with different companies you might find that you never use official C++ libraries and most current language features, but you are supporting legacy stuff that was first written maybe 20 years ago when not even built-in STL was available. This means either you are going to use some now-arcane implementation of someone's version of base libraries or the company rolled their own from the ground up many years ago, and because its so well entrenched in the code-base it continues to be used many years later. Not a big deal, but you might want to find that out for yourself, that if you are learning the latest and greatest of library and language features - you might or might not be using it in practice with your company.

You can PM me if you have questions but I'm not sure I can commit the amount of time you might need in a tutor role.

I paddle a good bit. I'd strongly recommend buying the book in the link below. It's $13 but is an excellent jumping off point and well worth the money at twice the price. There's also the state paddling trails but I refer to the book more often than I do that website. You'll exponentially enjoy your time on the water if you set up shuttles for rivers(i.e. a friend).

Don't have a tl;dr but if you want to read what Florida was like when we were first settling it, this book is pretty good. It's old newspaper/magazine articles from late 1800s.

(Tip: if an article is boring, skip it; there's a lot of amazing articles but also some very tedious ones. IMO the front half has a lot of these boring bits... but what can you do.)

I would recommend that you read The Art of Raising a Puppy by Monks of New Skete before you adopt a puppy. Good luck.

Suburban development 🎉

For those interested, this book gives a very easy-to-read overview on American city planning: https://www.amazon.com/Suburban-Nation-Sprawl-Decline-American/dp/0865477507. It’s tough to read living here, though, because after reading it you’ll definitely be bothered by so many things you never noticed before.

> Sorry but Obama tried Keynesian economics.

So first let me correct you here. To say that Obama tried Keynesian economics is to say you don't understand Keynesian economics. Keynesian economics is not something you can jump on when things are bad and quit when things get good again. Keynesian economics requires a country to maintain it for several economic cycles in order to see its full benefits. Its an economic model that relies on a surplus existing when things get bad so then you can start running a deficit in order to stimulate the economy. Obama attempted to put Keynesian economics to use when his predecessors had not which limits how great the recovery can be.

> It's the reason why under his time in office we had the worst economic recovery since WWII.

Again, this seems like a great talking point if you don't actually understand how economics works. The Obama recovery was practically the best possible scenario. What you're describing is the amount of time it took to return the economy to pre-recession growth rates. When you consider that the recession was in many ways actually worse than the great depression on an economic scale and multiple nobel prize winning economists defined it as a depression, not a recession, it actually becomes a credit to the Obama presidency. Obama actually had one of the best economies and economic policy models of recent presidents. Thats not just me saying that, thats even the right leaning bloomberg..

> You also contradict yourself in your post by first stating that the President doesn't have much influence over the economy and then stating Trump could take a recession and make it a depression.

I believe if you read again what I wrote you'll find what I actually said was:

> People in general believe the President influences the economy much more than they actually do...

The key portion there being "more than they actually do" not that the President does not influence the economy. Saying that the President does not influence the economy at all would be absurd. The President influences the economy in any number of ways but almost all of those take years, in not decades, to show up. People tend to believe the President is in his office every day deciding what the economy will be the next day. The primary way that a President influences the economy in a direct sense is through leadership. The president influences the hearts and minds of people all over the country and the world. In this case if a President projects calm and hopefulness investors panic less. If a President is under investigation for possibly being under the influence of a hostile foreign power and is acting EXACTLY as you would expect a president who is under the influence of a hostile foreign power to act while also being incapable of holding a thought long enough to calm someone down the markets are going to be more volatile as people are more scared and paniced as the future becomes harder to predict.

I recently bought "Orlando: Then and Now" and that's all the book is - past and present pics from the same perspective, side by side. I highly recommend it.

Architecture student here. A good book to read is The World Without Us if you're interested in what happens to infrastructure days to millennia after we are gone.

The building is definitely prone to mold spores and rodent infestations. In years to come I imagine the infiltration of vegetation will weaken the structure if upkeep is suspended. Other than that, it will probably become a large, 'modern' bat house.

The #3 one (last one) is a bit more rare, I'm acquaintances with a couple of those DJ's (sharaz, knightlife, k5) and I'm trying to find someone with one I can copy.

That is the fundamental disagreement. I don't think we have a "gun problem". We have problems with people.

If we snap our fingers and all the guns disappear, we still have crazy people, we still have violent people, we still have terrorism. Europe is up to their eyeballs in truck attacks, grenade attacks and stabbings. Even in the gun-free paradise of the UK. Australia is currently dealing with gang shootings in a country where handguns are essentially banned.

We have issues with:

  • nihilism, especially with young men
  • immigration (Orlando pulse shooter, Fort Hood)
  • terrorism, also arguably an immigration problem (see previous)
  • mental health, including an uncomfortable conversation about whether people on mood stabilizers qualify as mentally ill

    The most difficult problem is the last one. We are in a society where huge numbers of people take medications to deal with depression, anxiety and various personality disorders. If we go tell those people they are too dangerous to own guns, they're going to get upset. You can go all the way back to the clocktower sniper to see links between medications and violence.

    I would encourage you to read Columbine if you have a legitimate interest in understanding some components of this. You can take a tldr away that those shooters bought guns that were compliant with the assault weapons ban of the day. They were using rifles that had 10rd magazines and sawed off shotguns.

    edit: To answer your question directly, I don't think there is political will to handle any of the major causes of these problems and that nothing will be done. The next shooter already has his guns. The shooter after that probably does too. It's 100% going to happen again. Until we as a society are ready to tackle the really ugly problems under the surface instead of just posting hashtags about turning rifles into manhole covers, it's not going to stop. Arming teachers and what not can only help to a degree.

So basically what you're saying is that

  1. you do have a major homelessness problem;

  2. you do have a major child abuse problem (I would know--I've been cleaning up that mess for the past 10 years and have devoted most of my career to helping needy children and families in Orlando, so please, before anyone says I fucking hate everyone and everything here, consider that). Florida is ranked third in the nation for child abuse reports behind California and Texas. That's from the US Department of Health and Human Services, not me. And here's another tidbit: http://articles.orlandosentinel.com/2009-05-31/news/severe_1_abuse-identity-father

  3. I never said "there's nothing here but I-Drive". Look at my post history. I just recommended Bikkuri Sushi to someone. I know there are good places here. I never said that there weren't. I said it's a city that has the potential to be way more than it is and is cut off at the knees by its administrators who care more about maintaining tourism than caring for the people who actually live here. Don't you agree with that? And why is that such a horrendous thing for me to say? You all want to get butt hurt and act like a bunch of frigging animals and call me a piece of shit for stating facts?

  4. I've tried plenty to "integrate" myself. And I've partially succeeded. I like a lot of places here. The climate, poor organization, widespread commercialism that drowns out individuality, and the road systems are not my cup of tea, but I don't think I deserve to be called a "cunt" and a "bitch" for that. Why am I not allowed to say I don't like it here and that this town can be better than what it is?

    Maybe my perspective is so much more different because I've been working in the trenches here for the last six years. I know the problems in this town intimately. I'm one of the ones who speaks out to try to fix them and I am on the front lines with the people who are hurting. I'm not asking for a gold star; I just want you to understand that I see a very, very different side to this city, and it is a very ugly one. I'm not making some blanket statement about the average citizen here; I'm criticizing the people who run this place.

    So don't tell me I don't give a shit. I guarantee you that I have spent more time, energy, and heartache on this town than most of the people who are calling me names. I give a ton of shits about people a lot of you (not you, but some of you) probably spit on and call filth. Excuse me if I'm pissed off that your mayor and Rick Scott and Marco Rubio consider it more of a priority to shell out millions of taxpayer's dollars to import a soccer player than to fund social programs like the ones you've mentioned. Excuse me that it makes my blood boil to hear a bunch of little big-fish-small-pond shits in Winter Park laugh about all the "niglets in Crime Hills" (that's a direct quote, by the way) and swing their last-season Coach bag as if they shit pure gold. The ego in this town is fucking laughable and there are kids suffering because of it.

    You're absolutely right. I'm just a cunt who just likes to shit on everyone's good time and I don't give two fucks about this city.

    That last part is actually right. I don't give two fucks about this poorly organized, tourist trap, chain-restaurant ridden city. I do give a tremendous amount of fucks about people living and suffering here, of which there are many. While a lot of you are sticking your heads in the sand and chanting "Orlando FUCK YEAH", I'm out actively trying to improve it.

    Here's another article: http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/2007/03/orlando/allman-text/1

    And a book: http://www.amazon.com/Married-Mouse-Disney-World-Orlando/dp/0300098286

    But I bet he or she is just a miserable piece of shit cunt that should die, too.
