    Re: Football weight lifting tidbit

    Glad to see the players are getting stronger. Now hopefully the coaches don't run them into the ground so we can use that strength on Saturdays.

    Re: Homebuying advice?

    If you run the numbers with a 5% down payment and PMI, the numbers will shrink but it won't be a huge amount.

    And you have to compare apples to apples with investments. If you are getting an...

    Re: Homebuying advice?

    It's really not a case by case decision. 9 times out of 10 the math will favor home ownership if you are going to stay in your house for 10+ years. Other factors (length of stay, market location,...

    Re: Homebuying advice?

    You are correct that real estate is an investment with risk associated with it. But over time, its proven to be a very solid investment.

    What is the value of your home? Because it would be...

    Re: Homebuying advice?

    Ok, I'll bite.

    10 year renter
    $1,300/mo for 10 years = -$156,000

    10 year home owner
    $230k purchase price of house, 20% down (~$900 per month payment)
    $4,500 annual property taxes
    $1,000...

    Re: Homebuying advice?

    I'd take that bet every day of the week. Unless your home loses a ton of value in 10 years which obviously can happen but its pretty rare over that long of a period.

    Re: Homebuying advice?

    That's some pretty bad info.

    Of course no one wants to pay $12,000 in interest to pay $4,200 less in taxes. It's an extra benefit though. That effectively lowers your monthly payment by $350...

    Re: Homebuying advice?

    While this is all true. Keep in mind:

    The 70k you paid in interest was tax deductible
    The 40k in property taxes was tax deductible

    If you made $50k in net profit after having the house for 10...
  9. Re: The worst customer service you've ever received

    I had a similar story with Mediacom, although it didn't complicate a home loan. I bought a house in 2007 and wanted to switch to Directv. So I cancel Mediacom and drop off all equipment at the...

    Weird Al is back

    So far he's released Word Crimes (Blurred Lines), Foil (Royals), and Tacky (Happy). Pretty entertaining, especially if you grew up liking Weird Al.

    Poll: Re: How do you make your coffee?

    Not instant. It's a single cup, drip.

    Side note: I actually don't think instant is too bad.

    Poll: Re: How do you make your coffee?

    Short answer, by the gallon. I've actually cut back to about half a pot a day but I could (and usually do) drink it all day long.



    This. We haven't purchased K-cups in over a year. The...

    MLB: Re: 2014 Chicago Cubs

    If the first half was "fun", the second half is going to be brutal. Agree about continued development. Rizzo is coming along nicely. Hit his 19th HR yesterday and his average is at .277 and OBP is...

    MLB: Re: 2014 Chicago Cubs

    True. But unless you walk once per game (which no one does), your batting average is going to dominate your OBP stats.

    The Cubs actually do have a little power as they are 14th in MLB in home...

    MLB: Re: 2014 Chicago Cubs

    Batting average is still important. I don't think its a coincidence that half of the roster is batting under .220 and the team struggles to score runs.
