re: Instapot was Amazon's best seller in the US - fiyahbyrd157
The all day beans that you manually smash for thickness are better, but in a pinch this thing will put out pretty good red beans. You can do it in a solid hour including prep if you are cutting all your own vegetables. If you buy the pre-chopped onions, celery, bell peppers at the store, 45 min m...

re: Restricted stock units - tax question - fiyahbyrd157
Restricted stock units can go one or two ways. 1.) They sell shares at the time of vesting to cover the tax burden. The total value (no. of shares vesting X price on that day) will be reported as income on your W2. Whatever value of shares they sold goes on your W2 as income tax paid. If you are...

re: Haggling Mattress Prices - fiyahbyrd157
Bought a new mattress within the last 6 months from Mattress Firm. Their margins on a company level are around 30-35% best I could find. Treat the mattress like you would buy a car, start at 35% off and walk out if you don't get at least 25% off. If your responsible and can pay a note, the find a 0%...

re: The Texas House foolishly tries to overturn Denton's fracking ban - fiyahbyrd157
The problem with that is most of the time its not extremely cheap. All natural gas is not created equal. While the general population thinks that is so, the BTU content varies greatly. Not to mention any CO2 or H2S present. If the BTU content (or CO2/H2S) of the natural gas being flared is too high ...

re: Wings in Houston? - fiyahbyrd157
Place is pretty good. Since they've cracked down on the "no loitering" policy its not bad stopping in. First time I stopped in a homeless man was outside and stopped me on the way out to ask if had any change. As others have said, its a cash only place. I couldn't blatantly lie to his face and I...

re: Masters in petroleum engineering - fiyahbyrd157
If you have a relatively decent GPA you could always look for a job with one of the big service companies in their MWD/Directional Drilling service line. Work for about 2 years with them, exploit their training programs, then move on to an operator. ...

re: alternative minimum tax - fiyahbyrd157
If you make over the exemption threshold, you only have to pay AMT if the AMT calculation exceeds your 1040 regular tax calculation. As someone else said this usually occurs when you have lots of personal deductions on your 1040 (multiple children, education credit, etc). I won't go into inco...
