    Given by who? If they're given by someone else, those opportunities are merely someone else's outcome. And that's a generational cycle.

    School funding is often determined by local property taxes which vary depending on neighborhood wealth. Who lives where is an outcome. Based on your framework, equitable funding would be taking away people's outcomes to pay for other people's opportunities.

    meh, I wanna be rich just so I can not work and watch netflix and play xbox live. COVID and this whole "work from home" thing is a dream. I just cut out 90% of the busy work I used to that wasn't really necessary, realized I could do my job in about 3 days a month. So starting my 3rd job next month, and just applied for a fourth this week.

    "Equitable funding would be taking away people's outcomes to pay for other people's opportunities."

    Yeah, that's the basis of a society. Those who "have" give to those who "have not".

    Sure, but this society has been very resistant to that idea for the last 40-60 years.

    So you have 3 jobs and your goal is to chill out and watch Netflix and play XBOX live, but you're applying for a 4th job?

    I kind of get it because I've been saying yes to different opportunities over the last year, but I couldn't say my goal is to not work either.

    yeah, the mind says take the 4th job (note it was just sending a resume to which 60 people applied, I'd just imagine mine would jump to the top of the list based on particular experience) the hearts says netflix and xbox. Also, the 2nd job will go away in a few months probably.

    Ok. That doesnít change the definition of those terms.

    Sure if you include in that definition that one person's outcome is connected to another person's opportunity most commonly through the family. So that definition doesn't really distinguish between outcome and opportunity.

    We'll see how scooter weighs in as well since he brought it up.

    I went for a run after work and wore a mask the whole time because I was on a public trail but also because the pollen is fucking terrible today. My eyes were stinging but otherwise had no issues. Got home and went outside with the kids and I only lasted like five minutes before the pollen sent me back inside.

    I like having the mask outside.

    Last weekend we were out for a walk and I made an off handed comment about how the pollen hadnít been that bad yet and it exploded basically overnight. All surfaces covered now. Thought the timing was kind of amusing. We could sure as hell use some rain the next couple days.

    Yeah. I was too old for the first one but it never seemed all that cool to me either. This one looks much worse. Seems like they're ramming a ton of stuff into what should be a simple silly premise.

    I'm watching a virtual conference session and the presider just took a call in the middle of making a point and didn't mute himself.

    Overall this has gone better than I thought, but man I can't wait to do this in person next year.
