re: Five Guys, Chic-fil-A, Panera Bread vs. McDonald's, BK, Taco Bell (not food related) - Dave Worth
[quote]I'm just looking at what a unit does in sales, I'm not sure on their cost of goods or franchise fees. Im thinking you have to have more locations to equal the sales of one chic fi la. But then again, if you have a very well run McDonald's in a good location, you could kill it. [/quote] A...

re: Five Guys, Chic-fil-A, Panera Bread vs. McDonald's, BK, Taco Bell (not food related) - Dave Worth
[quote]Chic fi la, if you are talking just one unit. But you can't have more than 2 or 3. While groups may own like 99 McDonald's. [/quote] Not even close. The owner of a CFA is a glorified manager. They share a significant portion of the profits with the corporation. My understanding is the a...

re: Looking for opinion on Brigsten's and Clancy's in NOLA - Dave Worth
I'll also add that Brigsten's was the best New Year's Eve meal I've had out. We have some friends that are regulars there which puts them on a special list. I believe they do 2 seatings that night and we had the first. Total cost is $100 per person. That came with a ton of options. The first ...

re: Anybody know anyone who said screw the rat race and moved to the islands? - Dave Worth
My plan is to retire early to a small village in Italy. All I need is decent internet access and power and I can be happy. I'm 41 now and would like to be done working by 55. Shouldn't be a problem financially. I think we could go as early as 50 but that's cutting it a little too tight. Things c...

re: Retirement gift - WWYD? - Dave Worth
I think that is stupid. Having said that, I'd rather throw in $10 or $20 than be considered the office a-hole. I agree it should go towards a really expensive bottle of wine or whiskey if it's going to be done at all....

re: United being United: Gate agent wrestles with classical musician over 17th century violin - Dave Worth
[quote]On a related note..how pissed would you be if you were bumped from a flight only to see a fricking musical instrument chilling in it's own seat? [/quote] Not very much at all if she paid for it. Too bad more fat people don't buy the extra seat. Amiright?...

re: Dow hits record after Comey testimony - CNBC - Dave Worth
Honestly this is one of the major factors that pisses me off big league. My wife and I transferred all of our retirement accounts to Vanguard in February. Since February, our total dollar amount is up 6%...in just 4 months. That's not a return rate but the total growth of our account. Give me a ...

re: Can a dealer give you a trade in value without seeing the car in person? - Dave Worth
I tried this when I bought a new car recently. The best they could do was ask me the Kelly Blue Book questions and give me the range assuming I answered truthfully. Not much help since I already did that. The person did tell me that they pay better than any other place she had worked at. In th...

re: Looking for opinion on Brigsten's and Clancy's in NOLA - Dave Worth
[quote]The Shell Beach Diet dish at Brigtsen's is pretty unique. It's a huge seafood platter and none of it is fried. [/quote] One of the best meals I ever had. If I was taking someone visiting from out of town out for dinner, I would take them to Brigsten's and have them order this. You get f...

re: Food stamp, WIC users offered cheaper Amazon Prime membership - Dave Worth
Interesting discussion. Couple of points... Amazon is a business that can do what it wants. They've identified this is a way to either increase profits or to feel like they're doing some good. The financial risk is entirely on them so I support them doing what they want. I'm not poor and I ...

re: CPAP Usage - Dave Worth
[quote]The problem here is that the respiratory therapists have a monopoly on the machines, as they are the ones that calibrate them to your sleep study.[/quote] My Philips Dreamstation has a function where it adjusts automatically. Starts low and builds up to the "right" setting. I'm not sure ...

re: CPAP Usage - Dave Worth
I started using one about a year ago. There was a thread on this site that showed where you could order the Philips Dreamstation without a prescription. I got it simply through Amazon. It cost about $400 and I had it days after ordering it. I was overweight and snored really bad. My wife told m...

re: Looks like the next assassins creed is in Egypt - Dave Worth
It's not aliens. There was a race of beings before current man. They were similar to the Roman gods (I think...one was named Minerva and another Juno). I believe they created man and eventually went to war. Then a solar flare wiped out most of everything and current man was left standing. AC I ...

re: The U.S. restaurant industry is in a funk. Blame it on lunch. - Dave Worth
[quote]What does cost and labor/wages have to do with people not coming in for lunch as often? I'm confused.[/quote] I think they mean it's because the increased costs have driven owners to increase menu prices to cover it. I know that's true for the fast food industry. When you go from paying ...

My wife and I recently got into these. It's just a nice refreshing drink. I bought some copper mugs off of Amazon. We like to walk for exercise and a Moscow Mule after goes down really well....

re: Have you ever thrown up just from seeing something gross? - Dave Worth
About 2 weeks after Katrina we were cleaning out my father in law's house. He had some water in so we were ripping out his carpet. I had stopped at McDonald's and got a couple of McDoubles before we started. I remember it was pretty hot that day and we had just got back home the day before. My...

re: Question About Sous Vide & Meal Prep For A Week - Dave Worth
I sous vide all my chicken for the week on Sunday nights in vacuum sealed bags. I usually go straight from the water to the fridge. I'm sure there's a small chance something could go wrong but it never has before. I often cook meals on a Friday around 6 or 7 at night. Many times it's after mi...

re: Anyone have a Vizio M-Series - Dave Worth
I bought a 60 and 70 inch Vizio M Series a few years ago. So far they've been great TVs. No complaints and they were very well reviewed at the time in my research. Haven't kept up with the technology but it was the best performance to price ratio at the time....
