re: 12 year old dies on 4 wheeler north of Watson today - LSUtigerME
Some people don't appreciate or understand the risks involved, especially with child. Some people think a 12 yr old would be old enough to get a little more risky on these vehicles. Can't imagine the pain the family is going through. Thinking your kid is safe at the home of another....

re: How Much Cash Do You Have Available? - LSUtigerME
Immediate or at the bank? I have almost zero immediate. Very little in the house. Usually have to borrow from my wife's limited cash from her vinyl business (still <$300). Bank, access to whatever I need. Savings, checking, stocks, loans, HELOC, Credit Cards, etc. My cash is not fully tied up ...

re: O-T Mechanics: squealing brakes - LSUtigerME
Cheap pads can, but proper bedding of the pads/rotors is huge. Also, proper use of the lubricant. My cousin once applied to lubricant to all surfaces of the pad. Needless to say, his brakes didn't squeal....

re: Homeowners, Help settle a dispute with my wife. - LSUtigerME
Used to be in garage, but I learned quick about the smell. It now goes outside garage behind a little tree/shrub. Not hidden, but IDGAF. shite smells. Trash can also busted a small hole in bottom, so some nasty shite leaks out on occasion. I can easily hose it off/rain wash it away outside. In...

re: Do you include inheritance in your retirement planning? - LSUtigerME
Do you include any future inheritance for your children in your retirement planning? Meaning you are planning to leave them with X amount once you are done? I would not include it unless my parents were to setup some sort of phased transfer of assets. Otherwise, it's difficult to predict when you...

re: Someone hit my 2014 car, and I plan on getting rid of it. Questions about DV - LSUtigerME
This is always a fun topic. I had $17k worth of damage on a G37 (also was not in it) and I got a DV check for around $2k. I had to ask for it, but didn't argue for any more than that. I held onto the car for another 2 years or so, and the accident had absolutely no bearing on resale value. Fin...

re: ACL Injuries: Tips and Things to Know - LSUtigerME
Hamstring graft here. I had surgery about 9 months after I tore it (or 4 months after re injuring it and getting second opinion). I feel the long time between the tear and surgery was helpful. I recovered very fast, was walking about 3 days after surgery. Ice and elevation post surgery is crit...

re: Air Compressor - LSUtigerME
The compressor went out? Or is it leaking somewhere? Or did the fan go out? What year/model vehicle? Transverse engine? Compressor, that doesn't seem far off for Firestone on a transverse engine. Can likely get another quote for the labor, and get a refurbished unit for a little cheaper. If i...

re: Excel Gurus - LSUtigerME
What exactly are you trying to do? Is this a made up representative scenario, or real? Your entire table of A16:E21 is a copy from A8:A13, with one extra column for "Converted Amount". This converted amount can be done with just a formula using a vlookup to find the conversion rate. No validation...

re: Masters degree and salary - LSUtigerME
As already said, not gonna help much. Maybe about the same as someone 1-2 years out, but nothing significant. And it's not gonna help later. Most don't care you have a masters after you start for them. Once you get your PE (if in consulting), it matters even less. It may help you since you are be...

re: Deactivated iPhone uses - LSUtigerME
Does it preload map around you? I've used it through tunnels and areas where I didn't have service. Navigation continued to work fine. Never really thought about how it handles loading the maps as I've only ran into this once. I use my old iPhone as a noise maker for my son while he sleeps....

re: OT fitness goals thread - LSUtigerME
Work out consistently. Whether it's on a program or not, at least do some form of exercise 3x a week. Used to play basketball, but too many injuries. Might pick up some tennis. I'd like to be under 160 (162 now). 155-158 would be great. Not sure of bf%. I was 150-ish in HS, so 155 would be fine....
