re: Selling your home for profit in this market... would you? - The Spleen
[quote]Have you ever met people that just were lucky in life?[/quote] Yep, one of my wife's best friends is like that. Similar story of events happening in her life at the most financially opportune moment. Wife and I are the complete opposite in most regards, though we did luck into our curr...

re: Selling your home for profit in this market... would you? - The Spleen
[quote]It's hundreds of thousands of dollars over what paid, not modest to me. [/quote] Yeah, with this offer we got we'd walk away with enough to pay cash on something smaller, but there just isn't much on the market right now, and what is is way overpriced. And there aren't many rentals in our...

re: Selling your home for profit in this market... would you? - The Spleen
[quote]Housing prices are nuts, as we all know. We have an unsolicited offer that could net us a considerable amount over what we owe on our house, and we wouldn't have to prep the house for sale. We'd just need to move out. Of course, finding a new place is the hard part, but is sure is tempting...

re: 1 million truck drivers needed over next decade to meet demand - The Spleen
[quote]Which is why taking more than 10-15 seconds to execute a pass should NEVER happen. Yet it does.[/quote] Well, I hope that 10-15 seconds doesn't make you late to wherever you're going, Mario Andretti. ...

re: 1 million truck drivers needed over next decade to meet demand - The Spleen
[quote]The left lane will always be for speeders. Yes it's illegal and you don't have to agree with it. But what is dangerous is when a line of cars, who have been flowing along at 80 mph for MILES, suddenly have to slow down to 65 because the "professional" driver needs to pass the Swift rookie try...

re: Laurel, MS - The Spleen
Years ago for a wedding. Joey Lauren Adams and Parker Posey were there. Laurel was kind of a shithole back then. Hattiesburg is close by and was much nicer. This was 20 or so years ago though, so things may have changed. ...

re: 1 million truck drivers needed over next decade to meet demand - The Spleen
[quote]As opposed to backing up the left lane?[/quote] It's either back up the left lane and force left laners to drive closer to the speed limit, or back up the right lane by going 10-20mph below the speed limit. The latter is much more dangerous. ...

re: 1 million truck drivers needed over next decade to meet demand - The Spleen
[quote]Do truck drivers know how their trucks work? If my vehicle takes 8 minutes to complete a pass I would stay my arse in the right lane.[/quote] Often times it's about momentum. If those trucks hit their brakes with a full load, then have a hill to climb, it kills their momentum and it'll ba...

re: 1 million truck drivers needed over next decade to meet demand - The Spleen
[quote]They’ve been talking about this shortage since I was in college and that was 10 years ago. Not new news [/quote] Yep, it's been going on longer than that. I don't doubt there is a shortage of truck drivers, but this smells of trucking companies trying to increase the pool of drivers t...

[quote]Aren’t most big cities locked down?[/quote] Not at all. A lot still have mask mandates and restrictions on restaurants, bars, and entertainment venues, but most other businesses can operate fairly close to normal in most big cities. And I looked up current state restrictions. Californi...

re: Prices of goods we use every day are rising at their fastest pace in three years - The Spleen
[quote]Well let’s do it[/quote] What isn't open right now because of government placed restrictions? Genuinely curious, as almost all of the restrictions have been lifted. The only ones I'm aware of are restaurant/bar capacity and hours of operation limits in certain cities. And I think I read LA...

[quote]Open it up, get people to work, and no money for sitting on there asses[/quote] The point is we can only open up OUR economy(most of which is already open), not the economy in other countries that we rely on. A manufacturing facility in Nowehere, USA that relies on products from India ca...

[quote]I think its hilarious that you tout trying to pass garbage as a good thing[/quote] I never once said it was a good thing. I used the example to show that one party at least gives the impression they're trying to pass legislation, while the other doesn't even do that. I even put in my pos...

[quote]Not too long ago Republicans had the Presidency, a majority in the House and Senate, and a majority if Governors across the country. Yet, they have very little to show for that advantage. [/quote] That was part of my point. Both sides employ a lot of obstruction when they're not the s...
