  1. I actually liked that my son's school calls it a Year End Celebration. They're not trying to fool anyone by claiming anyone would fail. They just want to give the kids a chance to show off what they learned.
  2. Can i try this for work to avoid meetings?
  3. I actually just got home from my son's pre-school graduation/celebration. Yeah it's not like anyone can "fail" it, but he was really proud to stand on the stage and recite the stuff he learned and sing a few songs. It was pretty painless for me and he loved it. Plus, if i somehow give off the impression that this kind of thing is dumb, then next year when he "graduates" from pre-K he's going to stand up on stage like a snot and not participate. And i didn't raise a snot.
  4. It's tuesday night. You have anything better to do?
  5. ***Spoiler Thread*** Avengers: Infinity Wars

    It's a common trope in the comics, but not as much in movies or TV (other than soap operas). Ant-man and Wasp take someone else's mantle, yes, but we never saw those stories. And in the movies, we only ever see one person with those titles. It just feels cheesy to me. Like they don't know how to establish a new character, so they assume the title of a previous character to keep from creating a new story. It's just not interesting to me. Give me a new story.

    I've seen the quotes. It wouldn't be the first time we've gotten a misdirection. Maybe it's just me hoping they won't do it. I dunno.

    That's very true. Someone with a few hundred thousand in his retirement and a rental has a big chunk of his portfolio in one asset. That's dangerous.

    Oh i know. But that was still all conjecture. Formally announcing the new movies erases all doubt. Also, count me in the camp that believes you won't see a new actor/hero pick up the "shield" so to speak for any dead heroes. In other words, i don't think you'll see Steve Rogers die and someone else "become" captain america. I don't think you'll see Peter Parker die and someone else "become" spider-man. Those kind of things are fit for soap operas and bad TV, not a multi-billion dollar movie series. At most, you might see Steve Rogers die and Bucky pick up the captain america shield, but no one is going to call him Captain America.

    If you still have it mortgaged, then yeah it's tough at the beginning. The two things that turn a single rental into a cash cow are: 1) getting a steal up front on the purchase and 2) not having a mortgage. If you owe the bank 4-5% monthly, that could be half your profit.

    Sorry, i didn't explain that well. What i meant was that if you get a steal up front, then you're not making 10% on rent, but 30%. If a rental agency takes 10%, you're still making 20%.
  12. Financial Experts say...

    Rental property as an investment isn't very good if you're not making cash on it monthly. The yearly appreciation alone isn't great, if you compare to normal investments in the stock market.
  13. Financial Experts say...

    The only way to make this workable is if you get a steal on the upfront purchase. Then your 10% is 30% and you can afford the rental agency. But that takes experience in the industry, and patience.

    I suppose that's fair. It just ruins some of the surprise for me.
  15. ***Spoiler Thread*** Avengers: Infinity Wars

    Can anyone explain to me why they've already announced the Spiderman 2 and GotG 3 movies? That gives away a lot of the plot for Avengers 4. It's pretty safe to surmise many of the heroes "killed" off are coming back.
