Totally agree. This is a bad call by the sherif. Very solid 2nd amendment AND stand your ground supporter here.

The victim was clearly provoked. If I see some stranger berating my wife in a parking lot, my reaction would be at least as strenuous the victim’s. Having defended his wife, the victim took a step or two back to de-escalate the situation caused by the shooter!

Also, I strongly suspect the shooter may have hammed up his fall a bit like one of those soccer players trying to justify a foul.

If the other stories are to be believed, the murderer had been making previous threats to shoot people.

Lifelong firearms owner here. You put me on that jury and the shooter does not get away with murder.

The sherif is wrong.

Edited for grammar.

TBH I don't think you have any business being a gun owner, you seem too hot headed.

In what world is it okay to physically assault someone over the words they're saying?

-1 points · 17 hours ago

Yeah, right. I’ll ask you to remember that I entered this thread by stating this was an unjustifiable shooting and now you are suggesting that I am the problem? I am the one arguing the shooter was wrong.

Can you try to keep this straight?

I reacted to it. If you don’t want people reacting to what you say then don’t enter the comment section.

I’m also a gun owner and concealed carrier. The first thing they teach you is that if you’re going to carry you have to be extremely cool tempered. Someone who thinks it’s ok to assault someone over words isn’t cool tempered.

Usually toward the latter half of September.

As others have said, you shouldn't worry.

I have a kamado joe, not BGE, but essentially the same thing. I leave mine unattended all the time. Never had any issues whatsoever.

Even when I clean it a couple times a year, I just open all the vents as wide as they go and let it get up to maximum temps to burn off all the residue inside and I just go about my day and let it do its thing. It gets up to 600-700 and takes about 12 hours to complete and cool down.

I just had this exact same problem.

We built our house 2 years ago and I never considered the water pressure. I mean I always knew it was high, but nothing more. We had really strong pressure in the shower and the toilets flushed like jet engines. Then about a month ago we developed a leak (we are 1/4 mile from the main supply) and it took quite a bit of effort to find a leak in a 1/4 miles of PVC line, not to mention a lot of $$$. Then after we got it fixed a toilet valve in one of the bathrooms started leaking, which was strange considering the house is only 2 years old.

I mentioned it to a buddy and he said I need to check the pressure, which I did, and sure enough our pressure was right at 130psi.

I hired a plumber to come out and install a pressure reducer at the main supply and we are now at 70. The plumber had to use a track hoe to dig up the line because of the rocky soil and it ended up taking them half a day and they charged me $500.

You need to compare coverage to make sure there is nothing in the policy that is drastically different between the carriers that would negatively affect you. When you buy insurance you're buying their contract (policy) and the terms and conditions outlined in the policy.

Compare the policies and if the policies with the lesser known companies are comparable then buy it. There are tons of insurance companies that you've never heard of because they don't advertise.That doesn't make them any better or worse than the big guys.

With hot embers there's always a threat of fire, especially if it is particularly dry, the grass can easily catch fire.

After you pour the coal onto the grill if you'll cover it for a few minutes and close the vents about half way they will burn down and stop shooting up.

For a hike Turkey Mountain or bike up riverside.

For nightlife Cherry Street or downtown. There's an arcade bar that's got a lot of 80's and 90's arcade games.

For food there are too many places to list, but if you're new to the entire area Taco Bueno is one of everyone's favorite fast food chains around here. My favorite sushi place is Fuji's on 71st and Memorial if you like sushi, but there are tons of other good ones too. Best hibachi IMO is Shogun's, also at 71st and Memorial.

Thanks for the quick reply. The arcade bar sounds really fun. Do you know the name of the place? I might check it out tomorrow (technically today haha)

There's no reason not to file if you have hail damage. Even if the roof isn't a total loss but needs partial replacement or repairs then you are better off filing now than when the roof is older as you will have less depreciation the newer the roof is.

I assume you're in KS or MO and I'm not 100% sure how AmFam treats weather related losses but MOST companies around here (if not all) consider weather losses non-chargeable, meaning they don't affect your rates and won't slap a surcharge on there. If for some reason they do then you can always find a new insurance company at renewal who doesn't do that because there are plenty.

How much did the roofer estimate the repairs to be? What's your deductible?

Pics or it didn't happen. :)

We love pics of your cook on this sub.

Looks delicious! Great job.

His tears tell it all. Even when Saul meets up with Walt later at the Vacuum Repair shop he tells Walt he really helped Skyler with that phone call. Makes me wonder, did he take Holly just so he could setup the phone call?

I think he took Holly in the heat of passion and then realized he'd overreacted. The scene in the bathroom when Holly just cries/murmurers "mama" was heart breaking for Walt.

I think it was at that point he concocted his plan and executed it.

Insurance agent now, but worked at a major rental car company all through college.

Unless you're in NY there are almost no rental car companies that will rent to anyone under 21. NY will rent to 18 and over but the underage fees are yuuuuge.

Your best bet is to have a parent rent the car and let you borrow theirs, you'll need to clear this with the adjuster to make sure they'll allow reimbursement for it, just explain the situation. Other than that try one of the peer 2 peer rental services, but again make sure the adjuster agrees to reimburse.

So now you start watching again from the beginning and you'll be surprised at how much you pick up on the second go round that you missed the first.

I've binged it maybe 4 times total and every single time I pick up on new things that I never noticed before.

I re-watch the series every year around Christmas break.

He left Grey Matter because he had started his family with Skyler. He explained that he sold his children’s birth right for a few months of rent. Gretchen and him had a thing. Was discussed in season two after Gretchen came to talk to Skyler about Walt’s treatment. They went back to Santa Fe and talked about how their relationship fell apart and Gretchen attached to Elliott making millions off of Walt’s research. The exact reason they fell apart wasn’t ever discussed. The only thing that Gretchen said was they were at her parents for dinner and Walt was cold to her while he packed his things to leave.

I always assumed (and had no reason that I recall to assume it) that he left Gretchen for Skyler.

If true, big mistake that turned out to be....

I posted yesterday because I’m trying to decide on a rental car vs using cabs since there is no Uber. I’d like to get an idea of how much cab fare is. We are staying at the top of the 7 at Royal Cancun and will be mainly using the car at night to go to dinner every night and to the mall. I’m traveling with my wife and three kids 7 and younger.

Rental car is about $250 from Easy Way. What can one reasonably expect to spend on cab fare? Say from our hotel to the middle of the hotel zone?

I’m having the same question I’m nervous to rent a car I’ve read so many things saying not to but I don’t want to be afraid! I was on Priceline and says rental cars for as cheap as 6 a day in Cancun

We are flying out today and I return my rental car in about an hour to catch our flight.

If I could go back we would not have rented a car. Cabs are everywhere, cab fare is cheap. We stayed at our resort most days and didn’t use the car much. But even if we had taken 2 round trip cabs a day every day it still would have been cheaper than the rental car.

Also having it was a PITA parking wise. The malls and the markets have almost 0 parking.

This is the last rental car I’ll have in Cancun unless we plan on driving to Playa or something. This is the first time we stayed in Cancun our whole trip.

Side note: if you do rent a car at the airport use either Easy Way or Yes. All the other ones will screw you at the rental counter (I’ve rented numerous times in Cancun from many of the major brands and they’re ALL the same).

Thanks for the info we will stick with cabs! Hope you had a great trip

A frog goes to the bank for a loan....

Is it necessary? Depends.

What are your assets? What is your net worth? If you have assets and a net worth you need to protect then yes an umbrella policy is a necessary part of your financial picture, just like having life insurance, disability, or any other type of optional coverage.

You don't buy an individual umbrella policy for home and car you buy one policy and it protects you on your liability exposure for home, autos and other exposures you may have if you include them (i.e. business, rental properties, farm liability, etc).

If you have a large enough net worth you should definitely get one, if you have a small net worth you should consider getting one. You don't want to waste money but in the event of a bad car accident or liability claim then the $300 will be the best money you ever spent.

If you have specific questions feel free to ask them or come over to /r/insurance and we can answer them there.

Defensive driving courses get you a discount but I've never seen a company that gives you a discount for life. Typically it must be done every 2-3 years to renew the discount.

Original Poster1 point · 9 days ago

What about driver's ed? Is that the same?

Yes it’s the same. Discount for a short period of time, not lifetime.

Wow, these officers were incredibly patient with both of them, especially considering their non-compliance. Very well handled by TPD.

I'm just sitting here thinking of being 17 and making $14 an hour. When I was 17 I was bagging groceries for $5.25 an hour. But nevertheless....

  1. In the good old USA you need to have an adult as the named insured because a minor isn't old enough to enter into a contract (insurance). So you're most certainly going to need mom to be on the policy.

  2. I don't know what that means.

If rates in Canada are anything like the US then your $14 an hour wage is going to be completely dedicated to your insurance payment because being 17 and having a brand new car with comp and collision is not going to be an inexpensive proposition.

Well the easiest thing is a pork butt if you need to feel out the workings of a new smoker. Other than that you can't go wrong with a brisket.

Do yourself a favor and buy a log of bologna and throw it on there for a couple hours. Around these parts if you're smoking anything you have to throw a bologna on there with it for a cheap and delicious side meat.

This seems like a bad idea considering the current environment in Cancun. In the words of the great Walter White, “tread lightly.”

Been to Cancun twice before and loved it. Returning again but this time with our three young kids. We are staying at The Royal Cancun.

I’ve always rented cars in the past but I’m trying to decide if we should forgo it this time. Taxis seemed pretty expensive. When we do go out and about (probably once or twice a day) it will be just adults, kids will stay at the hotel with grandparents.

What’s the best way for 5 people to get from the airport to the hotel if we decide not to rent a car? Also do you have Uber? If not is there an app or anyway to hail a cab when we are out?

Depends on where you plan on going when you go out, and what you plan on doing.

If it's within city limits and/or you're going to be drinking, you should probably skip the rental. If you plan on visiting some cenotes or outdoors stuff, a rental will be useful. If you plan on going to nearby cities, you can take the bus.

My main question is... is there Uber? I saw where Uber pulled out a year or so ago and then news reports they were returning in September, but I've seen people comment on here that they may already be up and running.

Uber will be a deciding factor in the rental car.

I just asked my friend who lives there. No Uber at the airport. It's highly regulated. At the airport these are your options...friend with private car, car rental, bus, transfer (such as Best Day or Canada), and taxi.

I would recommend one but I have no clue how adventurous you want to be after you land at your hotel.

But is there Uber other than the airport? Uber in the hotel zone?
