  1. Greatest American Rock Band

    It's also worthless because the author doesn't realize that if two things tie for 15th place, the next thing in line is not in 16th place.
  2. Polk update

    Yeesh--this kid has very likely taken a few years off of your life Polk (but I am quite certain that is a trade-off you would happily have made). Continued wishes of best of luck to her and to all of you.
  3. Greatest American Rock Band

    I voted for Van Halen only because they were the first American band to pop into my mind (after first thinking of the Beatles, Rolling Stones, and The Who).
  4. We are all Africans.

    You from Africa, you African booty-scratcher!
  5. Where did you propose?

    I did and my father-in-law looked at my my mother-in-law and said, "What shall we say?" My mother-in-law jokingly said, "Hallelujah" and I thought to myself, "well that was easy enough"... and then my father-in-law said, "we should talk about this for a little bit" and then went on to give me about a half hour lecture on what it takes to make a good marriage. The lecture finished with my father-in-law saying, "so... it is done" and I still wasn't sure if that meant yes or no. But then my mother-in-law brought out some drinks for us to toast with and all was good.
  6. So I've got an old iMac

    Savage, before you give the Mac to your kids, you should spend some time thinking about whether or not grandma would have wanted them to turn gay. (In all seriousness, you have my condolences.)
  7. Legal issue w/ the sale of my home

    I think the next call to your agent should be from your wife then. On the other hand, I'm not exactly sure what your main complaint is here. Unless you think her inspector is screwing you over and is reporting fictious problems, then I think the buyer has the right to ask you to pay to fix them. (When she made the offer on the home, I am guessing it was with the understanding that the home wouldn't have any major problems. (For confirmation of this point, I'm guessing there wasn't anything in the offer that said that she would give you extra money if the home inspection came back A-OK, was there?))
  8. Legal issue w/ the sale of my home

    Don't fix anything and tell them that they can use the backed-up raw sewage to put out the fire. Problem solved and everybody is happy.
  9. Ain't you ever gone fishing with explosives? THAT is the best idea!
  10. To paraphrase Shakespeare: "...some are born douchy, some achieve douchiness, and some have douchiness thrust upon 'em."
  11. My girlfriend likes to call me Daddy,,,a little to much!

    If I'd have had 15 keystones in me, I would have been pissing on everything
  12. This is a clear case of a problem caused by a lack of private property rights. I wonder what Ronald Coase would have to say about this modern-day tragedy of the commons?
  13. Legal issue w/ the sale of my home

    Somebody correct me if I am wrong, but isn't the "buyer's agent" actually legally working for the seller (sort of as an agent of muck's selling agent)? In that sense, he/she might have had the legal authority to say yes to the continued inspection.
  14. Legal issue w/ the sale of my home

    If I read it correctly, muck has offered to pay 100% of the pipe repair costs no matter how expensive it gets. He just just said that if the pipe repair costs less than $3000 that he will give the buyers the difference to fix the chimney. (or at least that's how I interpreted it after I read it a third time)
  15. chicago huddlers

    Yikes...I just checked and they want something like $229 per night. I'm sure there are plenty of less expensive hotels that might be a better value for the money. (But if are thinking about getting two rooms for some reason, then I would definitely still suggest this Embassy Suites and just getting one suite and making your kid sleep on the sofa-bed in the "living room" and you taking the bedroom.)
  16. chicago huddlers

    Take him up in the Sears Tower. The Museum of Science and Industry is cool too. As for a place to stay, I've had good luck a number of times at the Embassy Suites at Ohio and State. It's just up the street from the ESPN Zone, Pizzaria Uno's and right next door to the Rainforest Cafe.
  17. Crash diet

    well, crap, Blitz. Best of luck for your wife--she'll be in my prayers.

  19. $12.5 million to store FEMA ice?

    It is supposed to provide me with my passport and it is f'ing that up big time right now.
  20. Legal issue w/ the sale of my home

    I'm with Az here. If I were the buyers, I'd be somewhat put off with the idea that you were blaming me for the problem and subsequently wanting me to share the cost of getting it fixed.
  21. Legal issue w/ the sale of my home

    Why do you need a lawyer when you have an agent? :ducks:
  22. Where did you propose?

    You know, I bet if you surprised your wife one night and "proposed" to her the way that you wish you had proposed, you will be writing yourself a blank check for nookie on demand for months if not years to come.
  23. Baking Baby Back Ribs

    He only cries because he is Jewish and as such is prohibited from eating my delicious pork ribs.
  24. Legal issue w/ the sale of my home

    I think for his new home, Muck needs a housewarming present.
