Nope. It's that they are so rare that there are not a lot of people that work on them.

The glass probably needs to be imported from Italy and you need someone who specializes in this type of vehicle.

If you are buying a vehicle like this you should have the insurance to cover everything. If you are renting you should be as careful as possible unlike this idiot.

America has so many animals that if you have a gun it should be relatively easy to live off game. Especially if you get out of the burbs and go to a national park or something.

That's crazy talk. Authorities have to carefully regulate hunting based on animal populations so that species don't go extinct. I don't think you understand how much meat is consumed by humans. Factory farms aren't just a convenience.

The rules for hunting are pretty complex.

If it starts to get real bad and people have to decide between feeding themselves and their families and the rules, see which gets picked first. This is why societies tend to fall into periods of civil unrest during bad times. A drought in the Middle East is thought to be partially responsible for the uprising in Syria, the rise of ISIS (though they existed as Al Qaeda in Iraq prior to it), and the huge recent migration to the western countries.

The point is that there aren't enough wild animals to feed the population. Probably not for a month, let alone for a year.

Sex is bad, but pooping is fine.

Harmon Brothers, which along with other ad companies has been reflecting and shaping our new comfort with bathroom matters, happens to be headed by Mormons acutely attuned to the art of selling, not to mention matters of taste and propriety. The brothers grew up poor in Idaho farm country, in a family of nine siblings. As children, they learned business basics and consumer psychology while doing things like hawking potatoes door-to-door and amassing a small empire of dairy cows. They don’t swear, and they’ve turned down work from alcohol companies because they don’t drink. But, as Jeffrey Harmon puts it, “There’s nothing in my beliefs that says, ‘You can’t talk about poo.’ ”

Those are eponyms.

A person after whom a discovery, invention, place, etc., is named or thought to be named.

A name or noun formed after a person.

I don't think there's a word for an eponym that's strictly alliterative.

I don't think that's accurate because "debbie downer" wasn't a real person.

The person need not be real. The people who gave us herculean and quixotic weren’t real, for example.

I agree, but they were specific unique individuals and not just made up names. Debbie Downer is just a meme and not a specific person.

I think modern nutritional science has debunked the link between dietary cholesterol and blood cholesterol. I've heard miracle stories about keto diet, too.

I tend to agree with that.. Cardiologist is the one who ordered the diet..

With respect to their massive knowledge, they are a person who had almost no nutritional education in medical school. Most gym rats have more food science knowledge and experience than a cardiologist.

Scary to use that in production. I noticed that it can remove the photo viewer and calculator which pretty much destroys core Windows functionality.

It sounds incredible. The first question I imagine teachers asking is something about standards. It would be huge if you could claim that it is fully common core compliant.... not just to pay homage to a buzzword, but as as legitimate claim that your assessments are following best-practices.

That mostly sucks because you have to look at the new version for a few seconds while logging in. Low point of the day every time.

Yes, I completely forget that renters don't buy furniture or do any landscaping or buy a trampoline. They live in constant squalor!

Your points are pretty weak.

When you rent that money is going into someone elses' pocket; you're paying on a service.

When you buy, you're paying a mortgage, something you own and that can grow in value - where when you sell (with those constant "projects" and what not) you increase the value and thus get a return.

I was happy living in an apartment for 2 years, My rent went from 760$ for a one bedroom the first year, to 1050 the second and then "under new management" decided to raise it to 1400.

I searched for 6 months until I saw a great opportunity, a 2015 built home (still with warranty) on 1/3 acre (densely populated area so 1/3 acre is rather large), in a housing market that grew 9% in the last year.

I too am a Millenial, knowing how to budget projects and save for them really help (:

My future projects coming up: Fenced in yard: $5500 Screened in Lanai: $24000 Some other shit: LOL

I don't expect to have it done next month or the next few months. But both of those things add property value to the house and with understanding what the percentage of return on certain house upgrades are, and considering inflation - every upgrade helps raise the value of the home.

I firmly believe that location has a lot to do with it, the area i'm in has gone from small city, to large and bustling and gentrified with a lot of tech companies moving here. Thus, I believe a house is a very worthwhile investment.

Especially since my parents sold their 180k$ home for 413k$ after 4 years (same city)

I can't fit a trampoline in my apartment so I'm not sure how you have me there.

The massive "appreciation" after the financial crisis was simply a return to normal. Historically, residential appreciation follows inflation give or take which means equity is basically a savings account long-term. If those 4 years you mention had been 2005-2009, your parents would have loved to be tenants as their home lost 50% of it's value.

Home improvements barely add their value to the property and often much less. Same concept - the so-called investment in home improvements is, at best, money sitting there doing nothing.

Outliers are possible and savvy real-estate investors will find them, but on average you can use any rent vs. buy calculator to show how equivalent rent and mortgage are in most cases.

Overconfident people who confuse bull markets with brains and never knew how leverage can work against them when liquidity dries out because , well, everything they ever bought was after 2009 and you had to be a fucking idiot not to make money in this environment , add to that us been in later innings of economic cycle when fed starts rising short term rates, what can possibly go wrong I am been sarcastic of course since I don’t know the future but that’s why we have cycles ,rinse repeat every 10 years give or take

Exactly! Everyone who started investing or bought property in 2009-2013 believes they are a financial genius. Just imagine how many millennials have made huge gains through some robo-adviser or investing app without any knowledge of economics or markets whatsoever. People are selling into a housing crunch so that they can upgrade house by turning their significant equity into a down payment. It's like deja vu.

This raises a question for me... if someone creates a still-life painting from a real-space object vs. a photograph, is it less worthy of appreciation? I would probably say yes to a degree because the lighting is static. image has already been converted from 3d to a flat image.

If that photograph was taken by someone else, should it be even less worthy (assuming the original photographer is credited)? It still takes skill, but 2 steps removed from a more "noble" or original creation.

I can still respect it though. Just credit the photographer, and I'm cool with it

Edit - Dimensional interpretation has already been done for you with real space vs. photo

Edit 2 - the comment from /r/GamehendgeBrewingCo kinda changed my perspective. This is only an impressive piece because /u/Bearo84 captured it in their medium. The re-interpretation took skill, but it's like a cover song on different instruments.

Generally, you can't refuse to pay rent over minor issues like that. It sounds like open-and-shut in your favor since you have done everything by the book. I don't think you will even have to make your case at all other than presenting the due-process you have gone through.

Just be calm and professional... I have a feeling they will either not show up or be insane and prove to the court that your claim is legitimate.
