The Sport Of Choice An interesting observation

The Sport Of Choice

The sport of choice for the urban poor is BASKETBALL.
The sport of choice for maintenance level employees is BOWLING.
The sport of choice for front-line workers is FOOTBALL.
The sport of choice for supervisors is BASEBALL.
The sport of choice for middle management is TENNIS.
The sport of choice for corporate executives and officers is GOLF.


THE AMAZING CONCLUSION:

The higher you go in the corporate structure, the smaller your balls become.


Ergo-

There must be a boat load of people in Washington playing marbles.

John, what should I do with all of this beech on my property? Are loggers even interested in that? Should I just cut it and burn it in the wood stove?

They may want it for pulp wood, hard to say, probably would depend on how much you had. For an idea of what that goes for in my area anyway.... tri-axle truck goes for 400-600$ here depending on weight, but that is pure hardwood and could be used for firewood logs.

Definitely run it through the stove though, not the best stuff but it'll heat

Holy shit; that sounds serious.  Good luck.

HI Chris, sounds like your sitting on a decent amont of dollars. Out here I'm told a simple cord of oak, is well over 200.00, that's black oak, no experience with white oak.  I understand the wood will be milled, that's more money. 

Best of luck to you. 

May your thanksgiving, be your best ever.

Dirk

I have 4 crews coming out to give me quotes in the next couple of weeks. It's a small property, but not one turned it down over the phone. I have a forester coming out next week. Just for shits, I went out and measured some of my white oaks. The diameter of those trees was between 30-40". No visible knots, and branches usually not starting until 30' in the air. We will see. Really, I'm just looking forward to growing shit on my property.

That's good enough for me.  Whether this youtube is one or not, is irrelevant to me.  In fact if it's not, then that should increase the value of future ones that are.  Assuming there are any...

> mobile phone zombies which have very limited storage, and bandwidth watched carefully and shared stingily.

A Seagate 5MB (ROM) hard drive once cost over $ 1,000 and the idea of transmitting a graphic digitally hadn't even been thought of.

On this theory, because there were no highways, motor lodges or gas stations in 1895, one could conclude that horseless carriages had no chance.

no, i'm telling you that public transportation had no chance.  you don't understand what you're advocating here.  the video company would take ownership of your property and services.  if you want a complete analogy using roads and transportation, this is the equivalent:

1.  you buy a car
2.  you also pay a company for a service you want
3.  that company gives you the service, but the quality is not as good as their competitors, and can never be due to physics.
4.  also, as part of that deal, that company takes your car and drives other people around in it, perhaps even when you want to use it.

is that any deal you'd sign up for? 

don't get me wrong; blockchain has its uses, but this ain't it.  the problem is with the model, not the tech.  this is better for the producer, worse for the consumer.  to ask the consumer to switch to that model when he has the other is a losing proposition.

and it's easy to see that at the root of it is that they disagree that google should determine how much their workers get paid.  sound familiar?

May I suggest this. IF you want to lead, then lead from the front, not from the ding weeds, it's very unbecoming a lady of your caliber.  Which is a shame, I really thought I could learn from you.

i don't think anyone here is trying to lead.  this is just more of your mind needing hierarchical constructs, and you not realizing they're the problem in the first place.
