The equation is finished and functional

To Do
1. Clean up the formatting (move things to other sheets, delete unnecessary data)
2. Test the equation 100 times under different circumstances
3. Extend the equation so the age input can be changed and so that it will be accurate
4. Add pretty colors
5. Allow it so that the calculation of the highest 35 years of salary doesn't have to be an input and that they sync with the years
6. Incorporate pretty graphs for the thesis
7. Test the equations behavior with salary increases and decreases right now i have it tested with a steady climb
8. Incorporate a limit (401k contribution limit) (no easy thing)
9. Incorporate an option to switch taxation brackets in retirement (extremely difficult)
10. Make a calculation so a person can input the annual salary they want to live off of and then given their other assumptions it will output a suggested contribution amount
11. Input a buffer so that a person can choose an amount of money that they want for inheritance/in case they overlive past their expected death year
Me -Phil left the site in my charge. I have a recorded phone conversation to prove it.

Me -haha you apparently don't know my history
Kohai - Maybe not, but that doesn't matter! You shoukd still listen to your community and quit being a tyrrant!
Me - i was being completely sarcastic
Kohai - then u misrepresented yourself by impersonating the owner—a violation of the tos

yeah i'm pretty freaking psyched every time i work on this thing it's like i become a little bit more insane. I don't know how to describe it. I'll look at the code I've written and wonder how the heck did I do that the next day.

It's some pretty interesting findings which i'll publish after I've written the explanation. Because the equation would mean nothing to anyone otherwise.

I would have to have fiscal consideration for them to claim that they have rights to my intellectual property. Maybe they should LRN2 law.

Where is there a fiscal in the rule of consideration? Curious on that.

At the very least if they copied whatever you posted here and published it I doubt you'd have a case, though I don't think they'd have a strong case for preventing you from posting copies.

courts in the United States may take issue with nominal consideration, or consideration with virtually no value. The old English rule of consideration questioned whether a party gave the value of a peppercorn to the other party. As a result, contracts in the United States have sometimes have had one party pass nominal amounts of consideration, typically citing $1. Some courts have since thought this was a sham. Since contract disputes are typically resolved in state court, some state courts have found that merely providing $1 to another is not a sufficiently legal duty, and therefore no legal consideration passes in these kinds of deals, and consequently, no contract is formed.

Still today, licensing contracts that do not involve any money at all will often cite as consideration, "for the sum of $1 and other good and valuable consideration". If analyzed under state law, these contracts may very well be found invalid.

I'd have a case if they published it under their name and attempted to claim it as their own.

That seems to be something a court is unlikely to listen to.
