re: Green Flash Pulls Distribution From 33 States, Eliminates 15 Percent of Workforce - GaryMyMan
I was just thinking the other day that I hadn't seen any Green Flash around recently. I thought it was my local distributor fricking up. We, as a nation, are just up to our asses in good beer these days. When I want a 6 pack of American Pale Ale, it used to be a given that I was going to buy Sier...

What Sort of Disability Insurance Do You Have? - GaryMyMan
Now that life insurance is squared away I'm worried about what happens if I step in front of that bus and don't die but merely get turned into a vegetable. Or, God forbid, get some medical malady that requires me to be away from work for months at a time. I do not have coverage through work. Is ...

Sell me on an iPhone X - what do you love about it? - GaryMyMan
I had my first experience with one at Best Buy yesterday. I couldn't figure out how to unlock it. Once unlocked I couldn't figure out what I was supposed to use as the "home" button. My 7 is still fine but I expected to be really impressed by the X and instead feel like a baby boomer trying to figur...

re: When should I refinance my student loans? - GaryMyMan
Realistically you're only going to save, at most, 2% interest on that 6.5% loan by going with some lender like Sofi. They'll do a hard-pull on your credit, take up your time, possibly add some fees, and you'll end up worse off than if you had just focused on paying the loan. (that is if you really s...
