re: Oil change with synthetic - KG6
[quote]Full synthetic costs the same as standard oil in the long run. If you have to change conventional oil every 3,000 miles, that's 3 oil changes at $30-$40 a pop vs. 1 oil change at $[/quote] Yes, but I think everyone is overlooking that I don't pay attention to my mileage. I basically just ...

re: For all those with single digit IQs on Jones Creek - KG6
[quote]You literally just proved my point. Why limit yourself to 1 lane when there are multiple lanes to use up until your merger point[/quote] Because at the merger point, there is no option. The merge must take place, or cars must stop. Stopping is obviously bad. Whereas beginning your attem...

re: For all those with single digit IQs on Jones Creek - KG6
What the other side of the argument is saying is that if you merge early enough when there is enough spacing that people do not have to hit their brakes, you lose that ripple effect. Yes, if traffic is basically stopped and it takes the same amount of braking effort to merge in the back as it does ...

re: For all those with single digit IQs on Jones Creek - KG6
[quote]This will be the point where what you do for a living is relevant[/quote] In all honesty though, I've had civil engineer friends that could never actually explain concepts. They just have a rule of thumb or chart to go off of. So when I keep hearing "it's the most efficient", but there's...

re: For all those with single digit IQs on Jones Creek - KG6
What I don't understand is how anyone keeps saying "it's the most efficient". Again, the picture at the beginning is useless since it's giving proper spacing to one option, but not the others. So, if we take that off the table, or at the very least give it to all options, what is the appreciab...

re: Oil change with synthetic - KG6
Non, but they base it off of usage still. How hard your engine worked etc. In any case, synthetic should last longer. So changing when the computer says means changing too often. If that's the case, I'll just switch to regular oil, but still change on computer recommendation. ...

Oil change with synthetic - KG6
I know this has probably been asked, but wife was taking our Tahoe in to get oil changed and asked what to out in. I always put synthetic, but then realized we always listen to the computer for oil change intervals. If they base that off standard oil, is it worth paying the extra for synthetic if ...

re: For all those with single digit IQs on Jones Creek - KG6
This is the dumbest argument ever. Look at the spacing in the last picture. If that spacing exists in any event of those scenarios, then efficient merging would take place in every option. But it doesn't. What the drawing fails to show, is that the most likely scenario in real life is that the p...

re: When should you buy a house? - KG6
So what you are saying is that all people who rent properties are willingly taking a loss :rolleyes:. The cost of you rent covers the note, taxes, insurance, upkeep, etc.. They don't just give you the other stuff for free. There are times when it isn't good to buy.... definitely. But if you...

They purchased a lot, then the contractor apparently purchased it from them while building and was going to sell the whole thing as one sale. Or my mom is just not that bright (real possibility) and is explaining it wrong to me. ...

I'm sure. I don't know how much though and not going to pry. Was wondering if these type of contracts typically have any additional penalties. Never even looked into building on my own, so not familiar. ...

Building house, then losing job before final closing - KG6
Just found out they are relocating my sisters job out of country. They laid her off today. They have about 60 days left on their house construction before they close. She'll find another job at some point, but she's on maternity leave right now, so it's not like she can go interview easily. ...

re: What would it cost if your house flooded and you just wrote a check? - KG6
The finishing touches on houses can be vastly different. My cousin and I both have ~2500 Sq ft house. He paid about 200k more than I did just to build a new custom house, not including the lot (mine included everything). Flooring, counter tops, molding, cabinets, etc can all be vastly different i...
