re: Ideal weight - tirebiter
[quote]BMI wants me at 174 to be borderline overweight, which means more like 155-160 to be in the middle of normal/healthy. My lower body carries a lot of muscle, both from genetics and years of soccer and bike riding, and I have broad shoulders. So BMI is of little use to me personally. [/quote] ...

[quote] quote: If I gain 5 pounds I feel fat. If I lose 5 pounds I feel weak and emaciated. I can do either over a weekend. I can do that from morning to night on a Tuesday[/quote] It's not the lbs in his example, it is the percent of weight loss to his existing weight. ...

re: Using 401K funds to payoff mortgage? - tirebiter
[quote]How does the divorce have an effect in regards to using money for mortgage? I get there are legal implications, but the 401k money is treated the same. If 401k is pulled out after retirement age, but from a pre-tax, you will still owe the normal income taxes on that money. Pulling a lot of...

re: How frugal would you say you are? - tirebiter
Larger ticket items - willing to bargain/negotiate a long time to get a good deal. Smaller things which are used/consumed more frequently that can add up over the long run, will be generally aware of best options and sometimes will wait or change buying pattern. Other things are kind of hit or mis...

re: Jared Poche 8.44 ERA last 3 starts - tirebiter
[quote]If he can get through the 1st inning, he usually settles in nicely. That seems to be his biggest problem this season. In innings 2-6, he has looked great. [/quote] Getting through the first inning has become a big "if", then when he is struggling in the fifth, he has become a typical Sunda...

re: Ocoee Whitewater Rafting Trip - tirebiter
Have been on the Ocoee multiple times. If you are talking about the shorter, mid-section run and your kids are not tiny, then think they would be fine if placed in the interior seating sections of the rafts. There are always people in the rafts who are slackers, from tiny to very large, so I can't...

re: Anyone have the Char-Griller Akorn? - tirebiter
Long time Primo XL user and have seen the Akorn at Kroger for ~ $320. From reviews, better ensure all the parts are in the box and make sure the intake/exhaust seals are in place and tight before using. If I were wanting to save $ upfront, and thought I might need to move the cooker a good bit and...

re: What is the reason for the bad blood with States baseball team? - tirebiter
[quote]Wasn't Polk really pissed when they hired Cohen? Or do I remember that wrong?[/quote] Cohen was a douche at UK and is a bigger one at MSU. His ridiculous bullying of the home plate ump the last series was so far over the line I couldn't believe he did not get reprimanded by the SEC. I ca...

re: Inheritance what to do - tirebiter
[quote]Question is if I want to take all the money out, other than ordinary income tax would I have to pay a penalty as well? [/quote] No penalty, could put you in a higher tax bracket. I would focus on the mix of assets in the inherited IRA and ensure they make sense to provide long term growth...

[quote]My comment was with respect to the situation presented in the OP, not in general. [/quote] +1, asking a total newb to put newly found money into a very volatile sector type equity investment that has minimal yield these days does not seem brilliant. Show her some price charts during OCT-D...

re: Recruit some power hitters! - tirebiter
[quote]Bats are still duds. The swing in the ninth should have won it for us. Baseball is ruined because pitchers can pitch with no fear of the long ball. The balls have no bite and hang forever. Hard liners are now soft liners. Sucks to be a batter. Life is a beach holiday for the pitchers, unless ...
