If I put in $1000 they will add $200.

If I put in the yearly max of $19,000 they add $3,800.

If I was somehow legally able to contribute my entire salary they would add 20% of whatever that was.

Is that weak? This is the only job I've ever had with a 401k plan, so I don't know. 20% one-time return on investment seems like a pretty good deal to me.

If you are able to max out your contributions, that is a very sweet deal. For folks who can only put away 5% or so, it is a below average plan. However, the ability to make it a good or bad plan is completely in the hands of the employee, which makes it an overall good plan in my book.

What you heard was Hoch Deutch", High German, not at all Dutch. He was probably a Bishop.

The younger Amish men were not remaining apart from the English world and he chastised them for it.

I incurred the wrath of an Amish elder. Recently drove to Chicago to catch the Cubs and get my fix of some cheeze-burger, no fries – chips at the Billy Goat. Inspired by the American Pickers and Barnwood Builders TV shows, I drove home via the back roads of Indiana and Ohio to see the lay of the land. Stayed at this little Mom & Pops motel in western Ohio for the night with the goal to get an early start the next day and hit the Jack and the R&R Hall of Fame. Down the road from the motel was a diner, and when I walked up to the door of the diner there was a group of about 12-15 young Amish guys standing around outside the door. I tried to open the door to the diner but it was locked. Sign on the door said it opened at 5 AM and current time was about 6:15 AM. Wanting to blend in with the locals, I said in a combination of olde English, Yoda and Canadian, “be not open the diner this fine day, eh?” One of the Amish guys responded that the owner had just told them that breakfast service would be delayed because there was no electricity due to a power failure. In my normal thick NY accent I said, “Power failure – no electricity – well then, it will be just like eating at home for you guys”. All of the Amish guys broke out into laughter – I started laughing – we were all laughing together – it was kinda cool. Then from behind the group of youngsters I hear some yelling (it sounded like German or Dutch or something). The young Amish guys immediately stopped laughing and all looked directly down at the ground expressionless. The group parted and this old timer with a white beard and huge Popeye forearms walks out from behind the group. Locking eyes with me and he started yelling, “You no good English; you no good English; you no good English”. He barked out some more German/Dutch to the youngsters and like little ducks all in a row, they all followed him to the parking lot to wait for the diner to open in a spot away from me. Fearing that someone was going to toss a hand loomed quilt over my head and administer a trimming to me, I hit the road. I really don’t think the elder was mad about the “no electricity it will be just like eating at home” crack I made, I think what set him off was that the youngins were laughing, and that they were laughing along with me. All the way to the Jack I kept thinking about that old Weird Al Yankovic Amish parody song of Gangsta's Paradise. As soon as I got home I found it on Utube and had to watch it several times (not sure if is OK to post the link so I didn’t). Next time I pass through rural Ohio maybe I can find some Shakers to rile up, some Shakers to rile up.

I almost killed one of those families running into their buggies on the road. There were signs up, they had an orange reflector on the back, but that buggy was almost invisible. It doesn't make a lot of sense they have to leave their home for work, I've seen lots of them at Aldis in the past using up food stamps, the old man knows they're a fraud. Their society is dependent on ours of course.

Well I'm down to a bit above average and my table is really aggressive now, so hopefully I just find some good spots.

2 more hours till the day is over.

Thanks. I cashed and made it to day two, but I have like 5 big blinds.

Poker tournaments are normally dumb, but how anybody enjoys these WSOP events is beyond me. Lots of lines, and forms.

I don't know a way around it, but having to come back tomorrow to play a super short stack is really annoying. I might not bother.

IDK, maybe there should be some way the short stacks can all pool their money and gamble for more chips so you don't have to waste your time.

EDIT: Yes GWAE. That's what I used my credit for. So my mincash of $1500 will actually be a profit of $1200 which is pretty nice. But it's another silly thing in the wsop. The min cashes are really low if you actually buy in.
