There already is one.
Because Tuco said so.
No. Some shitty poster did. Then after years of regret and several broken up relationships it turns out the lazy bastard is worthless later in life because it can't even stay on the first page.
Should we sticky it to combat the privilege it didn't have as a baby thread?
Yea, let's give it sticky privilege. Then all the other threads will be jealous of it. This thread can then call all the rest lazy SJWs and tell them all to "get a job and stop stealing my hard earned bits".
What's the best material for sturdy bootstraps? Genuine leather or some kind of synthetic?
You know you don't really need bootstraps if the boots are perfectly fitted.
I have an actual economic question. With the falling price of gas, will we see prices going down on other things since a large amount of goods throughout the country is shipped by 18-wheeler? Are there any dangers to having prices on many fall accordingly with the price of gas?
Why charge less when you can charge the same? I don't think the downward effects are universal, unlike upward price swings. Some competitive market areas sure, but airlines are all "hey, more free money yay!" and I'm pretty sure that describes a lot of industries.
I have $30k with of goods come in per month via truck. When gas was high they tacked on a $5 per delivery charge to compensate for the increase gas prices. So now that the price of gas is cheap again I'm saving $20 a month on $30k worth of purchases. I'm going to guess that no, falling gas prices will not result in any noticeable price drop in goods due to reduced shipping costs.
I bet those fat cat executives are eating the difference.

These days, a fairly large number of economists have realized that different stuff occurs at a 0 border (like wages being more inelastic in downward fashion that upward, negative effective interest rates leading to weird markets, and so on).
Do we think that lower fuel prices will result in lower meth costs?
The Smurfs are causing problems for China
Log In - The New York TimesAs the Chinese economy stumbles, wealthy families are increasingly trying to move large sums of money out of the country, worried that the value of the currency will fall and their savings will be worth less. To get around the country’s cash controls, individuals are asking friends or family members to carry or transfer out $50,000 apiece, the annual legal limit in China. A group of 100 people can move $5 million overseas.
The practice is called Smurfing, named after the blue, mushroom-dwelling cartoon characters, and it is part of an exodus of capital that is casting doubt on China’s economic prospects and shaking global markets. Over the last year, companies and individuals have moved nearly $1 trillion from China.
The lone female in those cities can be called Smurfette.
Oh look, regulation causing capital flight. If only two centuries of economic history, remedial math and common fucking sense could have predicted that.
