Guys, I'm talking about if you are in the aisle seat, the movable armrest between you and the aisle. Lifting it makes it infinitely easier for everyone to get in and out of the row. If you are in the aisle seat, you can even still get up while you tray is down and loaded with food and beverages. ...

[quote]Down payment can and more than likely will appreciate over time. Let's say you start a 100% financing and being forced to sell within 5 years. You're coming out of pocket when selling rather than [b]using the equity that would've grown if you've made a down payment of at least 6-8%[/b] at clo...

[quote]1) How long are you planning on staying in the home? Because if you were to sell within 5 years, you're coming out of pocket paying for realtor fees/closing costs because you're paying more on interest than principal with no equity if you were 0% down. 5-6% is been average. Find a monthly pay...
Sorry, I think I wasn't clear: I'm only referring to the aisle side armrest....
I still feel like movable armrests are not a known thing to the flying public. I would say less than 1 in 10 fliers uses them, despite the fact that their impact is almost miraculous. Why do you think this is? I've even taken to surreptitiously raising other people's for them when they don't k...

[quote]The guys on the money board are too entrenched in the game to realize what’s going on. The whole forrest through the trees thing. To understate the importance of a fiat currency losing its reserve power on a global scale to the global power is an exercise of folly, and similar to Nero. [/q...

[quote]How good is Big Fish, man?[/quote]Pretty bad. Tim Burton sucks. Sorry, see you at sonic. I was expecting sort of an expanded version of The Wonder Years. After 30 minutes, I knew it was just dreck. Very disappointing. This was 20 years ago, so thinking about giving it another whirl. But...
[quote]Agree. The weird thing is I really like the self titled debut but they took a step back w/ Killers and then a huge step forward w/ Number of the Beast. Killers album cover is one of the best in rock history though. [/quote]I don't think Killers was a step back - but NOTB was certainly a galac...

[quote]Hard to understate the importance[/quote]No, it isn't. This will have a modest impact on dollar demand and likely lead to a rational, mild devaluation of a dollar that has, frankly, been too strong....
[quote]If you were buying a property for 500k. Have 100k cash on hand, no other debt. Make enough money to where the payment wouldn't be too much of a burden either way. VA Home Loan lets you buy with no money down without incurring PMI. Would you put 0 down, 100 down, or somewhere in the middle?...
