Taxes. That's the biggest reason not to. Detroit has very high property taxes. You don't want to buy a shite hole for $100 and pay $500 or more a month in taxes while you wait for years to get a "maybe" ROI....

But, it's also a trade-off in a sense. I live close the the TN border. Liquor is cheaper in TN, but beer is much cheaper in AL....

We have 2 Hyundais. Did have a Chevy and a Mercedes. The transition from Chevy to Hyundai is seamless. The transition from Mercedes to Hyundai sucks ass......but, I have to keep in mind that we have 2 Hyundais for what I was paying for one Mercedes.
All in all, they're good vehicles. It was the s...

It's hard to blame a company for taking advantage of existing loopholes to make the most amount of money that it can within the confines of our system. Nothing prevents people like A-List Celebrities, Wealthy Senators, and traditionally liberal types that complain about income inequality from sendin...

I was on that shite for like 2 years. I had to have it everywhere I went. Kept a bottle in my pocket and a bottle in the car. Finally, I had enough. I just kept refilling the bottle with saline a little at a time to dilute it. That way, it wasn't so cold-turkey. Then, when the bottle was empty, I col...

It's been a while since we've been. I'm usually not a guy to get a flavored steak....some slight marinade and seasoning is plenty for me....BUT, we tried their Maui Steak (don't know if they still have it). I liked it so much, I ordered another one. Getting the bill sucked, but damn, the food was go...

Most of it comes down to camera distortion. It's much more noticeable in adjustable lenses....and especially around the edges. Also, the wider the angle, the more distortion.
As far as film......3D -> moving 2D images. Creates some level of distortion....

If you spank effectively, you rarely have to actually do it.
I'm amazed at the people in this thread that think you have have a logical conversation with a two year old about emotions.....or why they wanted pull an outlet cover off and stick a dime in there.......or why they decide to bite their...

I saw the first ones I've ever seen in the wild a few minutes from my home the other day. They have a nest. I was able to snap this photo. Too bad I couldn't get closer with a better lens.
