re: Jerry Lewis left his 6 kids completely out of his will - GaryMyMan
[quote]And I was a junior in college and yes while there was email, we didn’t use for any of our classes. [/quote] Wait... you’re in your mid 40’s and are this much of a pedantic cockbag to strangers on the internet? I thought you were some loser LSU freshmen, bored in the dorms. ...

re: DFW Airport: they seriously charge you to drop people off? - GaryMyMan
I love DFW. Three security entrances per terminal (4 in the new E terminal). Good food. Amex lounge. Or American Admirals club in nearly every terminal with good views of the planes. Tram runs quick. Compared to either of Chicago’s or New York’s two airports or Houston or LAX it’s a dream. I als...

re: Max Gruver was found unresponsive at the Phi Delt house - GaryMyMan
[quote] Because driving someone to the hospital is RARELY the smartest decision in a city[/quote] I completely disagree. When my dad had a heart attack at home my brother drove him to the hospital - I was 8 and in the backseat - it remains some of the most impressive driving I've ever witnessed. Th...

re: Spinosa wins ruling in Rouzan servitude dispute - GaryMyMan
This was a given from the onset. As always in these suits, the real winners are the lawyers. Could this result not have been accomplished in mediation with way less attorneys' fees (though perhaps not a viable option due to the reputation of the defendant)? Did these plaintiffs really think they wer...

re: New car not being delivered...nervous, advice? - GaryMyMan
Do you have a salesman you worked with? I'd call him with your semi-reasonable concerns (paint correction is possible, I don't think Irma damage is realistic). I don't think it's unusual for a vehicle released from port on the 6th to take this long to arrive - it's with thousands of other cars g...

re: Looking for Mid-size SUV for wife - GaryMyMan
[quote]because i dont want to spend $5000 every time i bring it into the shop when it breaks down[/quote] Porsche is constantly at or near the top of dependability studies. For 2017 the only premium SUVs that are rated higher are the Lexus RX and GX (though the cayenne is tied with the GX). My ...

re: Negoiating with car dealership - GaryMyMan
There is plenty of sound advice here. I will add: after you buy the car, do NOT keep shopping to see if a cheaper one popped up. It has, it’s 5 grand less than you paid, and it’s right down the street in the color you really wanted. ...

re: How is the Toyota Rav4? - GaryMyMan
The new ones are damn good. So are a lot of its competitors. The CRV, the Mazda CX-5, Nissan Murano... all will probably last you 10 years easy. Personally I prefer the Mazda. ...

re: Cost of a will in LA? - GaryMyMan

re: Cost of a will in LA? - GaryMyMan
I used to do them occasionally. I charged $350 for basic simple wills... BUT I would include this badass looking folder. [img]https://i.pinimg.com/736x/30/f9/85/30f9853de4999997157440f35518d763--will-and-testament-envelopes.jpg[/img]...

re: Leasing a vehicle vs. buying? - GaryMyMan
[quote]You get the same benefit buying the car [/quote] IRS Section 179 is not that simple. A vehicle under 6,000 lbs GVWR is limited to $11,060 in depreciation deduction. Whereas a leased vehicle can have the entire lease price deducted, to the proportion for which the vehicle is used for busines...

re: Leasing a vehicle vs. buying? - GaryMyMan
Also tax benefits if you own your own business and use the vehicle for business purposes. Or, like my FIL, your wife wants a new car every 3 years and the money is cheap compared to her happiness. ...

re: Could you get a better job if fired tomorrow? - GaryMyMan
Getting fired tomorrow is something more people should plan for. In 2016 I got furloughed for 6 weeks while my wife was pregnant. Motivated me to get out of the volatile industry I was in and do a better job of keeping irons in the fire. ...

re: Fake porn producer goes to prison for duping women into sex - GaryMyMan
[quote]I don't get the arrest[/quote] Because he played it poorly. It's one thing to trick them into having sex as a porn audition but blackmailing them with the pictures/video afterwards is frowned upon, and likely what got a prosecutor's attention. ...
