re: Modern conveniences to come around in your lifetime - Kraut Dawg
Internet porn. It's so much easier to masturbate. Back in the old days, you had to imagine what some person looked like. Now you can input whatever floats your boat for that day & have more choices than you can ever imagine....

re: Would you buy a 1995 Olds Cutlas with 54,000 miles? - Kraut Dawg
First, it's a GM car. Then, it's 22 yrs old w/ only 54k? You start driving that thing every day then every part w/ something rubber in it is going to start giving you trouble because its inactivity has caused those parts to dry out at some point. Probably more than once. If you're lookin...

re: John Ossoff's company - Kraut Dawg
[quote]I never said his political career was impressive. He was doing about as much as you could expect someone that young to do. [/quote] Sure you did. You are talking about how he's done more than so & so. My point is that he tried to stretch it, knowing it wasn't the full truth. Did you...

[quote]Oh I get it. I'm just defending his resume against hers.[/quote] Seriously, you're "defending his resume?" Of what? That he "saw waste & abuse by gov't contractors & fought to stop it?" Was he successful? Apparently not. Oh, that he works w/ an Al Jazeera supported "production" comp...

re: What are you saving your reward points/miles for? - Kraut Dawg
Not "saving," but "saved" I guess. We saved our Skymiles & hotel points for five years. We took the kids to Maui & Hawaii for two weeks last summer. Flights were covered & 10 hotel nights were covered. Only paid for a few nights & the rental car....

re: Should I Rent My Home or Sell It? - Kraut Dawg
[quote]I know people renting their homes in Houston that are making $1000 a month over their mortgage and after insurance, taxes and maintenance costs it barely makes sense for them. Your margin just isn't big enough and certainly not worth the effort IMHO.[/quote] Our only logic was to have it p...

re: Should I Rent My Home or Sell It? - Kraut Dawg
SoD, truth is, we had a rough go of it last time w/ having someone there while we were overseas. But admittedly, it was our first house & we were way too invested emotionally to make a good decision. Unfortunately, we have family members that don't offer us advice. Mgmt company, frankly, was over...

re: Should I Rent My Home or Sell It? - Kraut Dawg
We both are leaning towards selling. We live outside of Athens & both like it there, but we're unsure that we'd want to return there if we're financially in control w/ the kids gone. If we like Athens enough to move back, we would probably downsize & not worry about the school district. I don't...

Should I Rent My Home or Sell It? - Kraut Dawg
I apologize if long, but looking for some educated opinions & just want to put out all info at first. I have a job opportunity to move back to Europe in which my employer will include my housing. Keep in mind, as an expat, you get the first ~$98k income tax free & they're willing to employ my wi...

re: Why Are People In Such a Hurry to Board a Flight? - Kraut Dawg
[quote]Edit: If you can't afford first class, should head to the money board and learn a few things.[/quote] Come on, that's a bit pretentious. Who is to say that because one chooses to fly in steerage that they can't "afford" to fly first class? A lot of millionaires drive Accord/Camry types...

re: Why Are People In Such a Hurry to Board a Flight? - Kraut Dawg
The boarding issue is a problem created by the airline. My experience is primarily w/ Delta & they don't enforce their carry-on size policies. So you have the fat idiot trying to stuff their Samsonite bag & complain when it doesn't fit. Or the idiots sitting in row 42 but they find a bin on row...

re: Trip to Europe - Kraut Dawg
As others have mentioned, that's too much for two weeks. If you want to see as much as possible, I'd pick a region (loosely termed) & spend two weeks there. For example, if you've never traveled to Europe & you're worried about the language, go to England/Ireland. You don't have to spend all ...
