      I don't like losing a whole day traveling, and the time zone will screw me up either way, so for me it's better to not sleep on a plane, swallow the time zone difference and go to bed relatively...

      Similar situation here. I'm flying to London next month and opted for an overnight flight. I'm flying a day early so I can adjust to the time zone before meetings start. The result is I'm more...

      I saw this on my FB feed since I have a bunch of family there. In a city of 800,000 politicians and bureaucrats, 20% were registered on AM, with a concentration of registrations around the...

      You'll have to read his whole post and all links he posts to get the full story. It's better to just get accept it's outrageous before reading any proof there is reason to be outraged.

      I think the down payment is a thing that people still overlook, even after 2008. I know lots of people who bought in the past 2 years, and not one put down more than 10%...and these are all...

      You must be fun at parties.

      I understand what you are saying.





      If you note the two bolded items above, you'll see I reference financing costs and cash I used as a down payment.

      I'm not talking about iTunes or any other purchased copies. I'm comparing physical media (CDs/DVDs) to streaming subscription services (Spotify/Netflix).

      I never bought many DVDs in the past; I...

      I understand that, but there is a cost to tying up $10K in equity ($10K invested at a 6% annual return for 3 years is close to $2K). I could just skip that and finance more, but then I'd be dealing...

      Why? Honestly, it's a pain to have to deal with them. I've literally never used the CD player in my car (or the car prior to this). I don't even have a CD player in the house. My FIL gave me a CD...

      I had years of back pain that culminated in a herniated disc that took 3 injections to get relief along with countless physical therapy sessions. I am still reminded of the pain daily. I had to get...

      You aren't taking responsibility. You did what everyone did. As house prices rose, you took on more debt and used it as an ATM. Had you stuck with your original note and paid out of pocket for the...

      If you really wanted to keep it you would've continued making payments throughout the process so there was no chance you'd lose it; only a chance you'd get it for less.

      Insurance policies lay out exactly what they will and won't cover. They aren't loopholes. It's actually often the reverse that happens. When a policy is ambiguous, a judge will side with the...

      You signed a contract, didn't get what you wanted when you tried to renegotiate mid term, so you plan to walk despite still being under contract. That about sum it up? Wait, I forgot the bragging...
