Re: Homestead Exemption and sub-leasing a house you live in?

I read their newsletter and it said you can rent your house as long as there's no parking conflicts and essentially, no tenants being nasty to the neighbors. The taxation piece is weird, which is why a lot of ppl in FL just have tenants pay in cash. Seems sketchy to me. Top floor has two really nice...

Homestead Exemption and sub-leasing a house you live in?

I could use some help with this and the research is looking to be a pain. If my parents live in a two floor house, and want to rent the top floor out, is that fine legally? I don't think the HOA cares as long as there's enough parking spaces and the neighbors are happy. The accountant said something...

Re: Best cubicle space heater?

Damn, so much space heater hate. It's a good thing my department is like 3 ppl. Corporate really really sucks, huh? Hurray MPA.

Adderal & its effects?

Saw a documentary on it on Netflix. Thought it was interesting. Also, did you know that there are elementary magnet schools with an acceptance rate of <10%. What is going on out there.

Anyway, I may have ADHD or may otherwise find such a productivity product useful, so - anyone tried it?

Re: Best cubicle space heater?

This plastic contraption shooting hot air at me underneath the desk sure is nice. Comfort & productivity is up 8-) I may get some fingerless gloves though. Alpaca or some-such. This is almost as good as occasionally drinking Water on the job! I also got an Xbox One, 4K edition, $400. Oh no people, I...

Re: leanFIRE and fatFIRE definitions

@Jason, maybe he will. That'd be interesting to see. I usually sidestep that planning by avoiding marriage, but it'd be interesting to see how a divorce is handled with a multi-million dollar portfolio.

Re: leanFIRE and fatFIRE definitions

Yeah, fair enough, I wouldn't want personal matters to be discussed out of context.

On a more general, non-MMM sense...relationships, ephemeral these days huh. Good news is, with FAT or LeanFire, you can enjoy the ride and not worry about working on top of your love life. ;)

Resources to understand different places to live in the US and abroad?

I'd love books and resources on understanding the pros and cons of living in different states and countries. Thus far the only book I've read on the subject is Reconnaissance Man by Aaron Clarey, which is pretty red pill. I'm fine with that, but I'd like more travel books. I also liked Ken Ilgunas's...

Re: Best cubicle space heater?

That's a good point on the air conditioner over-compensating. So I need something that's just small enough for my cubicle and that's it. If it's too big then it'll get ruined by the AC. Guys, I don't think you understand, IDGAF about the environment, the world is going to hell and this hot-air blowe...

Re: leanFIRE and fatFIRE definitions

You could even hit those #'s living in HCOL area with a roommate or SO. My own costs are very similar over the past 5 years.(adding in bold for comparison.) $500k will be a great spot to pull the plug. The question is, will I want to live on $18k/yr in my 40's, 50's, and beyond......probably not. S...

Best cubicle space heater?

I'm thinking of getting a little cubicle space heater. I absolutely hate how stupidly cold offices are, even as the temperature is a cozy 70-80 outside. Nothing destroys my productivity like being cold, especially hands and feet. I won't be paying the electricity, but I don't want to fry the circuit...

Re: leanFIRE and fatFIRE definitions

Is there really that much difference for one person after they have 500K? I get it if you have a family or feel like living in the shit-hole that is LA or NYC, but 15-20K/yr is a lot... $600/mo for rent and utilities = 7K $400/mo for HI, Dental, Umbrella = 5K $200/mo for food = 3K $100/mo for transi...
