      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

My REI wish list

Recommended Posts

If you can point me to a store who will give me 10% off, I will buy there all the time. thumbs_up.gif Until then, I'll buy at REI.

 

And why shouldn't I do my part to keep REI afloat? Their salespeople have families, too!

Northern Mountain Supply

 

Join their club (free) and you'll get 10% off. Also for us Washington types, you'll save an additional 8.8% on the sales tax. $1.99 shipping is cheap.

Uh, bullshit, cracked. You pay sales tax all the time. Like on all those books you bought for school.

 

The REI dividend is only 8% if you don't pay cash or have an REI Visa, btw. Clearly NMS is a better deal.

If you present an out of state driver's license you can be exempt from sales tax. I know a ton of people that do that here.

Books are the exception, since the UW bookstore is run by assholes. If I present the driver's liscense, I'm exempt from being taxed on every other purchase I've made. smirk.gif

But that doesn't mean the cost of his education is covered by his tuition, does it? Come on, if you live in a state 9 months out of the year, you should be required to be a resident.

I fail to understand how your taxes are paying any part of my education, slothrop. I would LOVE IT if I could be classified as a resident. But I can't, at least as far as education definitions go.

No, you're supposed to say, "You have no idea what it's like being an out-of-state student, you yuppie Sooby-driving sales-tax-paying tele-skiing imported Washingtonian. If you were in my freakishly large shoes, you wouldn't last a minute." boxing_smiley.gif

 

According to this document (1998), my taxes help pay $6,710 per student per year, after tuition revenue and not including financial aid costs (a few hundred bucks).

 

This thread is dumb. Someone call a snugtop.gif to take it away.

There are a lot of students here. You must make a LOT of money to be able to pay them all 6.5k. hellno3d.gif

That would be a great companion for the wicking thong in the color of sweatpea.

Soft, silky fabric, no panty lines and no seams make this thong great for everyday wear.

 

Soft, breathable fabric wicks moisture and dries quickly

 

Sits at the hips, with high leg openings for comfort and freedom of movement; thong styling eliminates panty lines

 

Soft, plush elastic at leg openings and gentle, non-absorbent elastic at waistband enhance comfort

 

Rib-knit crotch panel for added modesty

 

Logo is knitted in to eliminate chafing

An interesting read on why college costs so much can be found here. For those that cringe on navigating to the National Review here's an excerpt.

 

Why is college so expensive? Why does federal aid never really succeed in making college more affordable? These shouldn't be deep mysteries. For over a decade I participated in university meetings aimed at determining my university's annual tuition increases. The only real question was, "How much can we get away with?" And the only real worry was that, if we overreached, we might move to the dreaded top of the list for largest increases. Most years, it fell to me to draft a letter to parents from the Chairman of the Board explaining that the tuition increase reflected this or that combination of new construction projects and programs.

 

Title IV funds and other federal financial aid are seen by colleges and universities as money that is there for the taking. Tuition is set high enough to capture those funds and whatever else we think can be extracted from parents. Perhaps there are college administrators who don't see federal student aid in quite this way, but I haven't met them. But I don't mean to imply that college administrators are driven solely by profit maximization. One reason that many prefer sky-high tuitions is that it enables them to act as social engineers. The larger the income from tuition, the more money they have on hand for scholarships for students who cannot afford the tuition.
