What’s the general consensus (if it exists) about buying points on a mortgage loan? If it helps, I’m getting quoted at 2.875 rate but can buy a little over a point for 9k to get the rate down to 2.625% (loan is a little over 700k). How do I best think about this? I’m expecting this to be a long term home (20+ years ideally unless something goes awry)

Why do people find it so hard to have different opinions for political topics?? E.g. I'm black but I'm pro immigration, pro choice, pro-social safety net and anti-gun but... When it comes to other social issues I sometimes lean right. I don't think racism in America is as big of a deal as it is claimed to be and I have yet to see irrefutable evidence of "systemic racism" tbh I don't think it exists. I used to be a D but I'm now independent and this "with me or against me" vibe is toxic af

I just found out I’m pregnant this morning. I have an offer for an in-house job which I’m thinking about to accept but they only provide 10 weeks maternity leave. My current firm offers 18 weeks. Should I stay for the maternity leave? I’m doing great in my current firm and received positive feedback in the performance review last week. But I know I’m going to move in-house eventually so I’m worried if I miss this opportunity it may not be easy for me to land another job.

How long is too long before meeting an SO’s parents? We’ve been together a little over 2.5 years and I still haven’t met them. Part of it is because they’re in India and we’re in the US and covid travel bans won’t allow it, but they have suggested FaceTime and my SO refuses. I think he wants to make sure it goes well but given our trip was planned December 2020 and won’t happen anytime soon, shouldn’t I at least meet them virtually? Am I reading into it too much?

Hello, I am helping a client get feedback on his recent mobile app. It’s called Boredumm. You can watch unlimited videos from anywhere (right now, only YouTube) with no fees, no sign ups, no data tracking. The value of this app is discoverability: fresh and diverse content always. As you know, social media algorithms make it really hard for us to discover completely new things. This app won’t silo users but rather expand their horizons.
