Re: Paying rent in bulk?

I did this once and it worked out very well. I would only recommend this when the property is in good condition and the landlord seems good. For me, the numbers were similar to your example. I paid 6 months in advance. I forget the exact discount but I think it was around 15%. He was happily surpris...

Re: 7Wannabe5- Take 7- The Money Dimple

IMO, if you have a correctly sized distance weapon (for example, a .22 rifle), you should just use that on it. There are plenty of raccoons. Don't get too close.. They can become fierce. One of my old coworkers grew up pretty rough, and he had a pet raccoon when he was young. At work, a raccoon had ...

Re: Manny - The troubled Engineer

I think if you are thinking critically, nearly any kind of design and manufacturing might become a problem. Personally, I think that progress in semiconductors and chips has some big benefits for the world. Their impact in developing nations allows nearly ALL people there to have access to the inter...

Re: Outdoor Cooking/Kitchen

My apartment has the cooking area outside. Fridge inside. I saw that Rob Greenfield's outdoor kitchen is very similar to mine. Sink, stove, covering. A little working area. Rain can be a big problem, when the rain is cold and wind blows it into the kitchen, I don't cook. I might ask my landlord to a...

Re: "swallowing" ​b​lackpill, overcoming it; moving forward; pseudoscience and woo-woo stuff

The other day I was sitting on the beach. Feeling great. Very tranquil. Then, a man and woman walk by. I see that the woman is in good shape. As they passed, I saw that she has a REALLY nice butt. I stare. I think, "I should have a girlfriend with a butt like that.... right!?.. Why don't I?&quo...

Re: Nomadland Movie

I think a problem with portrayal of folks in some of these vehicle dweller documentaries is they are done with the intent of showing a slice of 'American Decay'. Thus, they are more likely to show people like Bob Wells (nice guy, but shares negative slants, hangs out with folks who are at low points...

Re: Gamestop?

Yep. I sold out this morning. There were too many problems adding up. People can't buy shares on Robinhood (which itself may have prevented the price from really skyrocketing).. Tons of biased news propaganda and misinformation.. and maybe a handful of other shady things. Also, the discussions of GM...

Re: Gamestop?

Numbers I'm seeing shared are, as of 10am 1/29, short interest: 75.54% of float by Ortex, 113.31% of float by S3 Shortsight. This is 10-20% lower than 1/28 end of day. Previously (when GME price was $40 and lower) it was 120-140%. The volume looks to be quite low starting around mid-day 1/27 It seem...
