Do it for you, but not to increase the value of the house. Most of the time you'll spend more. Again, if you're adding a bathroom in the basement, that'll pay off a lot better. If you do the work yourself, it be better on the cost. Foundational work, if needed, will pay off, generally, because buyers don't want a… » 1/23/14 11:03am 1/23/14 11:03am

I'll second that on the Absolut
Its really not all that good for how much you pay. I get something locally made (in Nebraska) that its pretty legit. Cooper's Chase vodka, and its not a bad price either. » 12/09/13 9:48am 12/09/13 9:48am

granted any physical activity is good, its very different from exercise... and I suspect some of the wrist twisting can actually be bad.

I work in front of a computer daily for 8 hours, and I notice that I'm much more irritable than when I did work remodeling homes (maybe its just part of being tech support). I really… » 10/30/13 2:50pm 10/30/13 2:50pm

The most expensive apps I have are tasker and torque... and the torque app saved me like 500 vs going to a mechanic. I've maybe spent $25 on apps. A few layout changing downloads and the Titanium backup and Swiftkey.

I'm sure you all care deeply about my app purchases

I use mealime and think its great. It takes the planning out of it, and not that much of the food goes to waste because the ingredients are used for multiple recipes. Pretty slick actually. » 10/21/13 8:46am 10/21/13 8:46am

because real smiles occur naturally, almost reflexively to happiness.
Don't be so self-conscious, I'm sure you look better smiling than forcing one. » 10/16/13 2:09pm 10/16/13 2:09pm

Really? Do you want landlords to change your lightbulbs too?
Generally things like garbage disposals and drains get clogged because stupid renters that don't know how to take care of shit end up clogging things, or throw EVERYTHING down the disposal. If you put a hole in the wall, why is that the landlords fault? If… » 10/15/13 10:58am 10/15/13 10:58am

I guess I tend to imagine that I'll live a relatively happy life and just roll with the punches. Although, overall, i have a pessimistic view of the outcomes of things in general. » 10/01/13 12:25pm 10/01/13 12:25pm

Making your own sauce from scratch is pretty simple too (granted the vitamix makes it pretty quick) but you can blend whole, fresh tomatoes, sugar, a little vinegar and add whatever spices (or sub other fruits in for some of the tomatoes) and then simmer for 45 minutes or so to thicken it up... add the staple… » 9/12/13 6:27am 9/12/13 6:27am

The issue here is that you should be eating breakfast, but not breakfast food.
Its the sugar and simple starches that trigger the cravings in your brain for eating.
Generally if i snack on some nuts and mixed fruit in the morning, I don't even feel like eating until 2 or 3 in the afternoon. Simple sugars release… » 9/05/13 8:00am 9/05/13 8:00am

Why are you worried about what the state says about who someone is?
like they fucking know.

If "legally" i'm classified as white, but i have an african heritage, don't I have the right to call myself an African-American? » 8/23/13 12:59pm 8/23/13 12:59pm
