re: Apple Watch 1 or 2 for $90 more? - LSUtigerME
I have a Series 2, my wife has a Series 1. She has the smaller frame one as well. My battery lasts about 3x as long or more. My wife barely makes I?t through the day, with <20% battery. Mine is rarely less than 80%. The waterproof-ness is also great. No need to worry about getting I?t wet or s...

re: Do I need two water heaters for our new house? - LSUtigerME
For 2 bathrooms and a 3-person family, the 50 gal is fine. I have 2.5 baths in my house now and rarely have any issues with my 40 gal. Tankless are expensive, consume a lot of gas, require electricity to operate (loss of power means no hot water), have min flow requirements, heat input dependent ...

re: Home building advice/questions - LSUtigerME
[quote]Would you sell now and do this if you were me before the highway expands? [/quote] Yes. I’d list I?t right away and sell I?t as soon as you get a good offer. The advantage is you’re in no rush and won’t have to concede much to sell. [quote]What is the construction loan process if I own th...

re: How has Facebook survived as long as it has? - LSUtigerME
Facebook was initially successful due to the exclusivity, and very clean/simple interface. As shown in the movie The Social Network, you wanted to be on it because your friends were on it. It was very useful for college connections. MySpace was cluttered and allowed anyone to join. This implanted...

re: Louisiana License Plates - LSUtigerME
~500 (wtf kind of range is +/- 20% in this) license plates is a whole lot of plates. Some older, rare ones would be cool. Just not sure what you’d do with em. I’m pretty sure I have one or two of the purple striped LSU ones. @gmail...

re: Torn ACL Surgery - LSUtigerME
Just walk on I?t and treat I?t as normal, as far as walking. Obviously any pivoting or change of direction will cause some pain. I initially injured mine in June. Had a cloudy MRI, but never confirmed a tear. Had a newborn two weeks later, so didn’t push surgery or repair right away. Was basicall...

re: Oil less turkey fryer - LSUtigerME
It’s not quite as good, but it’s still very good. And it’s way easier and less clean up. I?t takes a little bit longer to cook, but the clean up and heat up time is way quicker....

re: When is the best time to trade in your car? - LSUtigerME
As mentioned, there’s a lot that goes into I?t. Using 100k as a marker doesn’t really mean a whole lot to today’s vehicles, reliability wise. However, it’s feasible that more people are searching for used cars with <100k miles. Financially, it’s better to ride the current vehicle as long as possi...

What are the pros and cons of this? Do they offer waiving the closing costs aswell?[/quote] You’re...

re: How many hours a day would you say you're honestly on your phone - LSUtigerME
I’m awake for about 16 hours. Not counting passive activity like Bluetooth streaming pandora/podcast (2.5 hrs/day), probably around 8 hours or so. Some of I?t is work related (emails/texts) at work, but a lot of browsing/social media. Then a good amount of browsing/streaming/gaming/social media a...

re: Realtor Fees and high dollar OT Baller estates - LSUtigerME
[quote]The higher end real estate usually requires more work and much more money invested for the realtor as they have to market it more which costs money and they spend more time on the property. They have more invested then your lower priced properties.[/quote] $300k property (6%) = $18k commis...

re: Anyone else’s iPhone auto correct changing I to a square ? - LSUtigerME
It’s also correcting “it” to “It”. I think it’s a classic Google bomb type thing. The It correction must have triggered someone to recognize a flaw in the autocorrect algorithm. They then capitalized on it and made “I” = “A [some emoji, likely representing a penis or the like]”. That’s just my as...

re: Is committing suicide by someone who has suffered tremendous loss excusable? - LSUtigerME
Excusable? Understandable, maybe. Excusable? No, not by the way the question was posed. But not sure it’s the word I’d describe it. What about a POW? Or the couple in Joshua Tree? Where do they fall on this perverbial suicide scale?...
