re: What is the economic impact of dropping bags of cash? - GrantTheFan
It would have a small, and brief, stimulative effect on the local economy in and around the neighborhood where it was dropped, with no real lingering effects. But if it was done consistently, there would be inflationary pressure created, leading to increased interest rates and a suppression of econo...

re: Should you put loved ones on life support - GrantTheFan
My Dad was diagnosed with a rare and mostly incurable form of cancer. The doctors wanted to try and he was a trooper through surgery and treatments, but it was obviously going downhill fast. After watching the pain and misery he went through it was an easy no for me when that time came, but my bro...

Ricky Williams is the only player I can remember signing a pay for play contract. Everybody laughed and he didn't earn any of the pay incentives. Nobody will ever sign one again....

re: Moving from company to contracting, need tips - GrantTheFan
I've done this several times since '08. The biggest thing to take care of up front is understanding the costs so you can negotiate the appropriate rate. Benefits, taxes, expenses - personally, I prefer an all-inclusive rate instead of billing back for expenses. But for this to work you really nee...

re: About how much does a restaurant make off a $20 meal? - GrantTheFan
Jmarto knows restaurants. At the end of the month, if 5% of gross sales ends up being profit, it was a pretty decent month. People not on the ownership side of a restaurant have no idea how easily food costs can screw you if you're not on top of it....

re: 30th Anniversary of National Minimum Drinking Age Act - GrantTheFan
Bars could declare themselves private clubs, then just give free memberships to whoever walked in. They wrote your name on a member card and boom, you were good to drink. So they qualified under the private event label. I found an old wallet at the bottom of a drawer a few years ago and in it wer...

re: Contractors in Baton Rouge Area - GrantTheFan
If he's incapable of replacing 5 or 6 boards, and doesn't have a friend who can help in exchange for a 6 pack, yes. It's like asking for recommendations for doctors who would do a good job trimming a few of his toe nails because they're too long or something....

re: Contractors in Baton Rouge Area - GrantTheFan
Not being a jerk, but a contractor has zero interest in that job. If you're lucky, some handy mam might do it, but that's a tiny job that isn't worth anybody with skills and other jobs time....

re: Renting out property without mortgage holder's consent - GrantTheFan
Because you keep asking the same questions after they've been answered. Change your insurance and keep making your payment, Wells Fargo isn't going to do anything as long as the payments are made. They have to deny your request in a CYA way for a myriad of reasons, mostly due to liability if they ...

re: Lnglf.....who has been stocking up? - GrantTheFan
It's obviously a spec play. May, might, maybe. But smarter money than me has bought in, so I bought a little. I'm ok with the risk/reward here. It's not for everybody....

re: WWTOTD- 9 yo daughter ran into wife's car with polaris - GrantTheFan
I grew up out in the country and hit a tree with my Dad's jeep when I was around her age. Scared me to death, thought he would kill me. When he got home from what was probably a shitty day at work, he looked at everything and went inside. I thought I was dead. He came outside a few minutes later...

Bobby Hebert - help settle a discussion - GrantTheFan
Some buddies and I were discussing Kapernick's new contract and we got around to Bobby. Long story short, my opinion is that Bobby was a middle of the pack, top 15 QB in his era. The troll of the group claims Bobby was not, just a terrible player who couldn't capitalize even with the best defense ...

re: trying to buy a house before you sell yours - need options\suggestions - GrantTheFan
I tried to find a house in southdowns for a year. The only three that came on the market that interested me sold they day they were listed, before I could get a showing.
