re: Remaining schedule of NFC teams - GoIrish02
Russel Wilson broke his jaw in the last game and had an all liquid diet this week. The report said doctors set it and he'll play tomorrow. Reminds me of Rickey Jackson's only missed game when he drove under a big rig, missed a week and played the rest of the year with a special face mask....

re: Why do people tie up huge chunks of income in expensive vehicles? - GoIrish02
I'm beginning to understand why there are a lot more German mechanics and "Bimmer clinics" all over town. That's why I figured the German equivalent of every Japanese luxury car is about half as expensive, as the rest goes to pay for repairs....

[quote]that's different than say spending $75,000 on a new SUV when you can get the same model 2 years older for $35,000 that has an older version of bluetooth built-in [/quote] This describes every German car on the market today. Buying through a used car wholesaler recently, I was surprised th...

re: Are firearms and ammunition solid investments? - GoIrish02
I'm surprised the market hasn't come down for the 9mm since the military is no longer in 2 active wars, plus the prices of metals have spiked and cratered since those halcyon days of CCI blazer ammo for less than $4....

re: Buying vs Renting a home for building wealth - GoIrish02
The rule of 72 indicates an average annual rate of return of 12% for an investment to double in your 6 year time frame. Stocks have returned quite a lot more than 12% per year in the last 6 years, plus they don't require all the significant ownership costs of a house. Has your house paid you mone...

re: Car buying experts - 2017 Tahoe LT - Update - GoIrish02
[quote] those are fantastic motors that get pretty finicky as they age. [/quote] Finicky =\= fantastic If it were fantastic, it wouldn't require special treatment so soon from routine use. For some reason, Japanese automakers figured out how to make cars that go 7,500-10,000 miles on an oil...

re: Car buying experts - 2017 Tahoe LT quote - GoIrish02
Buy a current pricing report from fighting chance.com to get real invoice pricing on the specific model you want. I think 1 model is $39 or so, maybe $60 for 2 models. He'll also give you a specific market report for the model, the manufacturer and YTD trending sales, plus a real strategy to foll...

re: Homeowners insurance on coastal fishing camp in Louisiana - GoIrish02
Flood is not affected by property coverage. In a V zone, you're going to pay, even if you're at a significant positive elevation with you electing the max $10,000 deductible per coverage. If you're self insuring, you'd probably be better off forgoing both coverages and just put the 4~5K in a ded...

re: Why does it seem so many automotive journalists are anti-Uber? - GoIrish02
Understanding the economies of scale, Uber still has / had to spend a lot more on autonomous cars' research & software development, plus all the same direct vehicle costs like Enterprise. I imagine autonomous cars will cost more than a Chevy Malibu. And Uber has yet to be profitable without all ...

re: Investing ~90k today - GoIrish02
As another said below, I understand I don't know the future, unlike your assumption of ever growing markets. DCA will get you invested over the horizon you're comfortable with, buying the right amount of shares at the most efficient price over that horizon. OP is scared to invest at the curr...

re: Why does it seem so many automotive journalists are anti-Uber? - GoIrish02
Good luck to Uber being cheaper than your owning your own car, if Uber plans to buy/build their own autonomous car to maintain their service in the future. Ignoring the personal freedom aspect, if Uber plans to incur the overhead of maintaining cars in the future, I just don't see how their cost ...

re: Why does it seem so many automotive journalists are anti-Uber? - GoIrish02
It will be curious to see if Uber makes their very expensive transition. They're underestimating the huge cost difference in going from an app provider that arranges transportation, placing all overhead, maintenance, upkeep on individual drivers, to the huge overhead and expenses of being a fleet op...

re: John Besh and Company Accused of Sexual Harrassment - GoIrish02
The industry accepts just about anybody who is willing to work, because of the poor hours and relatively low pay required by the low margins inherent to the business. Face tattoos, lack of education or other social skills are not a barrier to entry in the business....

re: Getting Out Of A Vehicle You Are Upside Down On? - GoIrish02
Irrational fear of "vehicle debt" is the whole argument we're having. The OP said he's comfortable with the current level of debt, you're encouraging using a bunch of cash to satisfy an emotional fear of debt instead of sound rational decision making....

re: Getting Out Of A Vehicle You Are Upside Down On? - GoIrish02
The loan he has is not changing. Selling the car will generate a guaranteed loss he otherwise doesn't have to incur. He can keep the loan and his financial position doesn't change. He's just afraid of being upside down. Edit: He's got a truck worth $20,000 and owes $26,000, that's the recognit...
