    I think that some people never get ahead financially through no fault of their own. I also think that the opportunity for frugality and building savings is still there for many people. In some...

    No, really. This mortgage crisis was created by the private sector, not the government. No bank was forced to loan to anyone.

    Banks especially weren't required to give loans to people with...

    Thanks mrodgers. I'll keep that in mind if I make the leap to the 21st century!

    All beautiful parts of the state, and all different, no matter what the guy from NYC thinks. :rolleyes: (I grew up in Upstate NY)

    If I was starting from Albany, I think I would head up to Lake...

    I did get a bad case of knee tendonitis that was caused by ramping up cycling too quickly in the spring after being sedentary over the winter. So it is possible to do. I would amend your statement...

    So did you figure out how to use the Android as a phone without having a data plan, or do you just use it as a minicomputer and carry a separate phone? I did a little online research and found it...

    I think it would make sense to couple anti-phone/text laws with a requirement that police *must* investigate cell phone use in every accident investigation. Data is available from cell phone...

    It's more ($99 currently on Amazon), but I would buy the Serfas True 500 again in a heartbeat. Something that is sometimes overlooked is how well the mount works and how inexpensive it is to replace...

    In our case, the neighborhood elementary school is pretty good, so we would have been fine through fifth grade. Our older girl attended there through 4th grade. Middle schools here are tough. We...

    I agree with most of this. My wife and I grew up going to thorougly mediocre small-town schools. I think students who are bright and motivated can learn fine in that type of environment. It hasn't...

    I completely understood your point before, and I agree that many young people move out of the city and when they have kids. My counterpoint is that this tendency may be changing. There is renewed...

    I don't think my post was political or off-topic. The thread is about a demographic trend (Millennials buying fewer cars), the reasons for that, and if it will hold up over time. A key to analyzing...

    It will be interesting to see how this plays out. Is the "white flight" tide still pushing people out of the cities, or has it turned? In recent decades, young people moving into cities were...

    Mortgage rates are actually set by the market. The Federal Reserve has encouraged low mortgage rates by lowering the "floor." They make it cheaper for banks to borrow money in the short term, which...

    Just a pet peeve of mine. "Free market" as an economic term does NOT mean "free from government regulation," even though a lot of people use it that way.

    It means a market that is free to follow...

    Well, someone mentioned weight watchers a couple of times. Is that what bothered you? The OP had already mentioned a couple times earlier in the thread that s/he had cut back on carbs, so why make...

    I think you're posting in the wrong place. We've recently flogged this dead horse in two separate threads.
    :deadhorse:
    Now we're flogging a new dead horse regarding rest vs. exercise.

    I know you're against the law, but I wanted to play this out a little more. In Massachusetts, pretty much all numbered routes are state highways, even the two-lane ones that go right through towns. ...

    Why don't you google "performance-enhancing drugs" to make a list of the possibilities and then google them one by one to figure out if you can get them legally? If you're actually interested in...

    Painter's masking tape. Several layers stuck to a bike rim makes it easier to properly set brake pad toe-in. I cut it long enough to cover both brake tracks at once. It's adjustable (just add or...

    It's too bad that the beef, pork, and poultry industries don't lobby the US Government. They could clear this whole about carbs vs. fat vs. protein thing up in a week. Too bad they were voiceless...
