Re: What do you HATE that everyone else LOVES?

Carrying on that theme, all the fake furniture sold today. No, particle board is NOT furniture. I've got GOOD furniture (kept, handed down for generations in the family) made of real wood -- maple,...

Re: Tesla and other Electric Cars Talk

Funny you mention Boise. I had a relative who did that, in 1958 (!), moving from a small Los Angeles home which cost $14,000 at that time to a huge ranch (with accompanying 3-bedroom house) in Boise...

Re: The Home Owner Thread

Same... I've bad neighbors (entitled) but live in a good, safe neighborhood. Overall, I guess that's a good thing.

Re: Your favorite cereal to eat dry right from the box?

I know I'm weird in my breakfast culinary dining habits. I also like bananas green and orange juice without any pulp at all.

Re: The Disneyland/California Adventure Thread

I get that. High price should increase scarcity. However, it really doesn't with Disney. They would have to increase the price to $10,000 per year to reduce crowds. There is so much disposable income...

Re: The Home Owner Thread

Yes, I agree. Painting a room for me, at 56, would be physically tough. Especially if there were high ceilings and / or you needed a ladder to reach the height of the walls. But, still in order to...

Re: Your favorite cereal to eat dry right from the box?

I also eat all cereal dry. Milk or any liquid turns it into a mushy, inedible abomination, the sludge which isn't fit even for dogs.

One of my favorites to eat is:...

Re: COVID-19 POLITICAL Thread

One of the best decisions made so far during the past 18 months. And one of the only reasons why I'm glad to now live in Calif. Now, the big questions is: Will it actually be enforced, or is it just...

Re: 2019 eBay Rants

... And Ebay knows it's just gravy for most people who sell on there, and that's why their fees are so high. They can get away with it.

Re: The Home Owner Thread

Congratulations. But, then, you knew just what to do and how to do it, so you had the expertise. $600 to paint a single room sounds about right. The days of $10 per hour handymen are OVER.

Re: The Disneyland/California Adventure Thread

So, bottom line, it's almost $6000 per year for a family of 4 to get an annual pass to DL now??!! (a REAL annual pass with admittance into the park whenever they wish). Just for admission, food not...

Re: Pet Peeves?

Right on, 100%. Back in the day, it wasn't all about money, it was about sharing information, knowledge, and comraderie. Social media didn't exist, at least not unders the auspices and control of the...

Re: Tesla and other Electric Cars Talk

Well, I could get $1.5 million for my 1958 ranch-style house right now, or nearly as much for my 2018 model-year car as what I paid new. But, but... where am I going to live after I've got my...

Re: COVID-19 & Education Thread

Shocking, and of course extremely short-sighted. Because of purely political decisions like the above made in Oklahoma, COVID will never be truly eradicated.

And, my point about kids getting...

Re: The Home Owner Thread

I actually agree with you; we're not ready to fully power our homes completely via solar yet. Therefore, it seems to me that Solar is a very poor investment until we're yet ready to do it completely....

Re: 99 Cent Store Bargins

Up until about 2012-2013, everything in the 99-cent stores was, well, 99 cents. Greed came into the picture, and now, less than 50% of their stuff is 99 cents. And what used to be 99 cents, like 3L...

Re: slop101's Official Soda / Cola Thread!

Oh, yes, I believe I commented on it years ago in this very thread. I think it tastes even better than Dr Pepper, and it's about 1/3 the cost (79 cents per bottle vs $2.19 or 2.39 for a 2L of Dr...

Re: The Home Owner Thread

No, your AC will never, ever be "free", even after having invested a huge sum of initial outlay to put solar panels in, and waited ~15 years to "catch up" in savings. Unless you're completely...

Re: Tesla and other Electric Cars Talk

Of course EVs are not for everyone. Those who regularly haul heavy loads long distances, in rough terrain, during the cold Winters need not apply. But, in general, for a good 80% of folks, EVs can...

Re: COVID-19 NON-POLITICAL Thread

I thought it was closer to ~95-99% of those currently hospitalized with COVID are unvaccinated. If that isn't proof that this vaccine does in fact WORK, then we're shitting up a creek... and pissing...

Re: The Home Owner Thread

Much better than reflective paint would be a lightly colored roof (white, light tan, or light gray), but that doesn't do you much good if your house already has a dark roof color. Stucco just absorbs...
