re: People who are coughing and spitting on others- Protect with Lethal force? - LSUtigerME
[quote]You are missing a key component of justifying lethal force. Imminent danger is the standard used to determine if lethal force is justified. Killing someone who coughs on you is not placing you in imminent danger.[/quote] Depends on how you feel about this virus. You could argue if you’re o...

re: Installing a junction box in dead space to extend outlet. - LSUtigerME
[quote]But I'm assuming you mean a junction box with a blank cover that is still accessible.[/quote] I’m interpreting the post that the outlet/junction box will be inaccessible once the cabinet is installed....

re: Garden Hose Questions - LSUtigerME
I have a Craftsmen Rubber hose for over 12 years now. It’s not left out in the sun, but it’s great. It’s a 100’ and it’s heavy. My next favorite is the Ace Hardware “Premium” grade. Don’t recall if it’s the flexogen or SmartFlo or whatever they call them. It’s a very solid hose as well. Only had...

re: Need PVC Pipe help - LSUtigerME
What about using some type of PVC tee combined with a flexible pipe coupling or reducer? Make a normal PVC tee, a stub of larger pipe, then attach the reducing coupling where your smaller pipe can slide in and out? Something like this coming off your tee. [img]https://images.homedepot-sta...

re: Adjustable dumbells - LSUtigerME

re: Pre-fab cabinet companies - LSUtigerME
In this area, custom cabinet shops are everywhere. I find it hard to believe you can get a pre-fab set of similar quality than from a custom builder. What exactly are you asking for, and what are you being quoted? In terms of materials and details? For the paint, are you asking for some specia...

re: Potential strategy for Monday? Is this sound? - LSUtigerME
You pay taxes on your net realized gains (or losses). So it all adds up at the end of the year. Again, they must be realized so it only matters if you actually sell your holdings. Meaning if you make $1000, reinvest it, and that investment tanks but you continue to hold it, you WILL still owe tax...

re: What grass seed to plant to establish yard - LSUtigerME
Would another option be to purchase 1-2 additional pallets (or more) of St Aug and spread the squares out in a “checker” pattern? The sod surface area would be way more coverage than buying plugs. Then you can water the areas really well and let the St Aug spread to the bare areas....

The survey I hired when I built my house took care of the paperwork for me. My final elevation certificate was used (LAG Elevation). It took a few months to get finalized. FEMA is not the quickest to get back to you....

re: What kind of grass sod to put down? - LSUtigerME
I have Palisades Zoysia as well. It’s very thick and chokes out weeds very well. It’s not too bad on growth at all. If you can sod the whole area, it’s great. I’m trying to figure out how to expand my P. Zoysia coverage this spring/summer without breaking the bank (can’t seed it)....

re: HVAC Question - LSUtigerME
Can you get a 2-stage, 14 or 16 SEER unit? When I was talking to guys, 16 was the highest rated single stage you could get. The cost from 14-16 was pretty small. But the jump from single stage to 2-stage was more significant. So if you want the 2-stage operation, that’ll drive the first considera...

re: Buying new car without the shitty overhead 2003 era DVD system - LSUtigerME
iPad and a headrest mount that we remove when we get out. Most of the time he just holds the iPad, and wireless headphones are a tremendous help. Kids iPad has held up for over 6 years now. It’s been swimming a few times and covered in just about every sauce/food imaginable....

re: Who has the best price on tires - LSUtigerME
I use TireRack for reviews and info, and discount tire for their prices (and no tax). However, the last few times I’ve bought tires I’ve been able to get the same price for the same tires from the local tire shop. Yes. I have to pay taxes, but they waive the mount/balance fee (or significantly reduc...
