Re: Wanting to move to California - what can I do there?

Re: Let's talk about cars

Have you considered the VW e-Golf? If you don't need huge range it's great for town driving.

Re: 2020 Election

Only 5 states have a resign-to-run law apparently (in most of them it wouldn't apply anyway) and California isn't one of them - https://ballotpedia.org/Resign-to-run_law

Re: When do we expect Trump to lift the travel ban against UK?

Hillary never had such a large, consistent lead in polls at this point in the cycle in 2016 though. Pollsters have also corrected their methodology (e.g. weighting for education which is partly what...

Re: 110v uk tools in the usa

Don't blame me if it blows up but if it only has two wires it isn't grounded so just connect the two wires to the hot and neutral pins (doesn't matter which) of a US plug and it'll probably work fine.

The OP says UK in the title, building sites in the UK use power tools with a 110V center tapped earth transformer for safety - each conductor is only 55V potential to ground.

Re: Became a citizen, received 4 letters about Unemployment Insurance

Seems strange, it could well be identity theft so I think you should try and follow up.

Re: Finance job in the US and how to build US credit

Absolutely, it's still a great service - just not as good as it used to be as it won't give your average age of accounts a massive boost.

Re: Finance job in the US and how to build US credit

They don't do this - they did used to backdate the reported year of account opening to your Member Since date but they stopped doing this years ago.

No UK history is transferred to a US CRA.
