Across the nation, hundreds of thousands of taxpayers who are expecting refunds this month are instead getting letters like the one Grice got, informing them that because of a debt they never knew about — often a debt incurred by their parents — the government has confiscated their check.

Social Security, Treasury target taxpayers for their parents’ decades-old debts

so, that explains the missing $1,000 the IRS was supposed to refund me. awesome! good to know taxpayers have zero chance of getting money back that is rightfully theirs! yay government!


"Her and Lost In Translation are connected to each other. They’re very much on the same wavelength. They explore a lot of the same ideas. This all makes sense since Spike Jonze and Sofia Coppola were married from 1999 to 2003 and had been together for many years before that. Sofia Coppola had already made her big personal statement in regards to love and marriage right when the couple was on the verge of divorce; Her would be Spike Jonze’s answer to those feelings. What makes it even more poignant is that Her never feels resentful or petty. It feels more like a legitimate apology. It’s an acknowledgement that, in the end, some people aren’t meant to be with each other in the long run. Some people do grow apart. Lost in Translation is about a couple on the verge of growing apart, Her is about finally letting go of the person you’ve grown apart with and moving on.”


If we can embrace that we have different ways of thinking, different working methods, different reactions, then we see value in them rather than detriments…Your first salary is the one from which every salary after that will be based. Negotiating says something about you; that you understand your worth and that you are not afraid to speak up. It’s an important skill.
