while people are debating on whether the shorthand for this game should be "ultimate," "smash 5," "SSBU," or "smush"

i've personally taken to referring to it as Smash $5.99

Smush is nice

That's extraordinarily high comparatively. Our sales tax is only 6.5%.

Taxation really is theft.
Perhaps, but it's a tax I'm happy to pay. Sure, it's pretty high but I'm fine contributing my part. It translates into high quality healthcare and education being accessible to all, great public transportation, mandatory paid holidays and benefits, good social care, housing and financial assistance for everyone in case of illness, maternity/paternity leave and stuff like that. It could probably be lowered a bit but I'm more than happy paying it.

Except when you're finding loopholes to skip on em #lawyerlife
Lol, I can see why you'd say that but this isn't even a loophole. It's just how sales tax is intended to work. Everyone in the chain of making a product or providing a service passes it on to the next one in line until it reaches the actual point of sale where it's the consumer who pays the tax. When I give legal counsel or am asked to cast an event or tournament, it's the person or company hiring me that pays the tax as I'm supposed to include it in my fee. It's simply how it's supposed to work, no loopholes or sneaky tricks whatsoever. I'm only exempt from the VAT on things I buy for the company (and can justify too, like a computer to stream or office supplies). Everything else (99% of what I buy) I just pay full tax like anyone else.

Yeah that's how it works here too. The shop accounts I used to work with would get super pissed if we charged them sales tax on parts for customers.

I just can't imagine over 20% in sales tax. You guys have property tax too?

I'm probably going to get a 1080ti to put in the current pc with the i7 7700k. This will be the main gaming PC. I'll move my current 1080 to the new rig with a 2700x and then use that one for the encoding and streaming.

Sounds like a plan
Just gotta wait now until I get the company going so I'll be able to write it all off as expenses. Pay less taxes and buy every component without a 20-25% tax on it? Hell yeah.

Fuck me, what's the 25% tax about?
It's a sales tax of 21% (not 25). It's far less for most things but for some goods like electronics, it's around the 20% mark (for comparison, some states in the US have theirs at around 10% max). The way that sales tax works (and this is the same for the US) is that it's only paid by the final consumer, not by anyone in the production chain.

Quote
Conventional or retail sales taxes are only charged to the end user of a good or service. Because the majority of goods in modern economies pass through a number of stages of manufacturing, often handled by different entities, a significant amount of documentation is necessary to prove who is ultimately liable for sales tax. For example, say a sheep farmer sells wool to a company that manufactures yarn. To avoid paying the sales tax, the yarn maker must obtain a resale certificate from the government saying that it is not the end user. The yarn maker then sells its product on to a garment maker, which must also obtain a resale certificate. Finally, the garment maker sells fuzzy socks to a retail store, which will charge the customer sales tax along with the price of said socks.
This applies to both goods and services, so if I buy PC parts as a company for my work / business (which I can easily justify as my stream / casting is part of my work activity), I can buy them with an invoice and not pay the 21% tax because I pass it on to the next one in line (the company that hires me). I can probably save around $400 on a $2,000 PC that way, for example.

Future proof that rig brah, and don't be shy sending me whatever you don't need.
What parts would you consider futureproofing?

I would rock the Intel and 1080
The Ryzen has significantly more cores and threads though. It definitely outperforms the 8700k for streaming, rendering and productivity. As multiple cores/threads are being used in more games as well, I think you could well argue the 2700x is more futureproof. AMD has also confirmed that it'll be supported for its next 2 (?) generations of platforms, meaning that their processors will work on future motherboards just the same (whereas Intel requires an entirely different motherboard for every one of its CPU gens).

Not really seeing a downside then. No compatibility problems?

I don't think most of the American population has the critical thinking skills to look past the targeted ads and shit flinging that goes on in most elections.

There's a reason the two party system is so widely accepted here and it's because you don't have to think or research anything about your candidates other than if they have a D or an R after their name.

It's gotten to the point where amendments are attached to party names so you don't even have to research the laws you're voting to put into place.

Strictly off influence you gotta give it to Wayne, birdman, Drake, and Nikki. They may not be your favorite but they've definitely changed rap as we know it.


Personally I think Kendrick Lamar, Wu Tang, maybe even Wayne should be in most people's top 10.

Czarface and MF Doom are the two I find myself listening to the most recently.

the most important factors for determining GOAT potential:

- body of work (consistency, creativity, innovation, etc.)
- critical acclaim
- sales
- impact on culture
- longevity

artists who hit all 5 are in the discussion for GOAT, but artists that hit at least 4 are worth mentioning when it comes to essential rap, imo

So Wayne
