Rant: HOW is SAS so ubiquitous? Why has it persisted so long and why are companies so reluctant to remove their dependency on it? Was it really the only tool for analytics in the past?

Did anyone successfully get AMEX platinum to waive the annual fee? I was just told no. Saw a post but it was for corporate cards. I have 30d from when the annual fee hit my card to cancel and get the amount back in full (no pro-rating). There have been a few perks added but the net still seems high for just accumulating points I can get from other free/lower fee cards since I'm not using any AMEX services.

Recently started working remotely for a consulting firm in NY, currently living in TX. Single with no dependents, haven’t setup 401k or other contributions yet - my first paycheck was taxed at 38%. Because of my residence in TX, no NYC city tax was withheld (correctly). At 125k, 38% seems absurd! I checked multiple online calculators and even manually checked what my contributions should be against the tax tables - I should be closer to 30%. Does this check out? I hope it’s a clerical mistake

For all the Indian men (who grew up in India, now working on visa or post student options in US) and trying to marry an Indian American citizen to expedite your GC/citizenship path, I have a recommendation for you.
