re: Half marathon training - StringedInstruments
I used the Hal Higdon novice program. I felt like it didn't give me enough miles before my first. I ran 8 good miles and "fell forward" for the last 5.1. I got up to 30+ miles a week before my 2nd half and finished it strong and fast. Biggest piece of advice is train slow. You should not be ...

re: Estimating Taxes for Rental Home Property After Sale - Am I doing these numbers right? - StringedInstruments
[quote]No they sold it at a 220k profit because they were deducting 20k of income every year for 11 years. Depreciation recapture taxes up to what youve taken as depreciation at regular rates because you were deducting it at regular rates yearly. So in your case, if I'm understanding your facts corr...

re: I rewatched True Detective Season 1 this week - StringedInstruments
[quote]I disagree completely. Can you be specific?[/quote] I don't know about limping to the finish line, but the show introduced the idea that there was a huge cult system operating throughout Louisiana. The show concluded with the serial killer and Carcosa. I think many were hoping to see the d...

re: Estimating Taxes for Rental Home Property After Sale - Am I doing these numbers right? - StringedInstruments
The a/c unit was purchased in 2017 and it was a rental until March 2018. I'm going by TurboTax's "amount of depreciation taken in prior years" on my 2017 form, which is $12,436 + this year's depreciation, which is $5,269 (Schedule E Line 18a). So the actual amount is ~$18k according to my returns. ...

Estimating Taxes for Rental Home Property After Sale - Am I doing these numbers right? - StringedInstruments

re: Am I being too stingy with mortgage payment? - StringedInstruments
What part of Louisiana? If you’re in New Orleans, then probably too low to realistically find a place that’s nice enough to raise a family for the next 10-15 years. And how long is that $1600/month guaranteed for? That’s pretty damn nice to have. How much do you have for a down payment? If you...

re: War on poverty and programs to help the poor - StringedInstruments
[quote]As far as being born in to it, no. That is not an excuse. Every individual with an IQ north of 85, provided they have the drive and motivation to not be poor, is capabale of not being in poverty. Whether or not they have those things is not the responsibility of society as a whole - it is the...

re: SOLO-- spoilers and reaction thread. - StringedInstruments
[quote]Deep down, many if not most here want the movie to fail spectacularly. Maybe not so deep down.[/quote] I’ll admit it. It’s not deep down. Kathleen Kennedy and Rian Johnson were both vocal about wanting to subvert the Star Wars universe in order to push a social agenda. Then they produced a...

re: Why would Lebron suddenly be gassed? - StringedInstruments
Good night sleep? Honestly, I think the whole “Lebron is gassed” narrative is tiresome. He seems just fine when his teammates make some shots and some good plays and the other team doesn’t hit on the majority of their shots the first half. ...
