Re: House hunting

4505 Wallace Ave, Monona Beard, this is in your neck of the woods, no? (Monona is my neck, too, but you said you're on the N. side, I'm more south-centrally located) There are only one or two photos where my immediate reaction is not "What in fuck??" How did this house come to be? Who con...

Re: fflambeau as Popular as a Poop Canal

Funny thing (to me, anyway) is that I follow a local classical music blog where flimflam comments with regularity, but there, the comments are generally germane to the topic at hand and don't annoy me in the least. I have no idea why it's different here.

Re: House hunting

"Don't miss this diamond in the rough." Why do the used car salesmen(/people) get such a bad rep when there are realtors, oh wait a minute what was I thinking, capital R R ealtors in the world? Cripes, I need a shower after seeing those pictures. Also, the House Hunting thread is the only ...

Re: House hunting

That's great. The cops tried to smoke the guy out and end up setting fire to the house. I suppose the tactic proved to be effective, but I'm also guessing the police dept's insurers will be footing the bill and the cost of living just got a little higher in Monona. Anyway, thinking the guy was renti...

Re: House hunting

I take it you didn't pick up and read last week's paper copy of Isthmus, huh. You definitely should!

Or, just read all the articles here.

Do what I remember doing in chem lab and use a glass rod or whatever have you that's long to pull the fluid down into your target vessel.

Re: House hunting

Another one to be filed under "Why bother tidying up for the pictures?" Renters who DGAF perhaps? I found myself in that situation once, and since the owners had a history of minor dick moves with me, I didn't feel all that obligated to help them when it came to selling. In fact, is it re...

Re: $231,000 heart surgery bill would not be covered under TrumpCare

Just like the person I got into a war with on Facebook (I don't bother with such things anymore) who said, regarding the food stamps she begrudged everyone else but took advantage of herself for a time, "but I needed them."

Real turds.

Re: House hunting

This makes me wonder. If you're pulling air out of a home, outside air has to be coming in to replace it. For an older house, this probably isn't an issue given all the gaps that are sure to be present in the structure but for a modern house, with all its tyvek and sealing, I wonder where this air i...

Re: House hunting

The widow who's lived there since god was a boy is finally moving out (or has moved ON) and home improvements were not her thing, nor his thing before he passed. My guess.

Re: House hunting

Haha, there's definitely that. I guess that's why it's somewhere in the south for me rather than, say, New England. Something coastal and a combination of newly-built tacky and run-down crappy.

Re: House hunting

What Beard said, but walking around that neighborhood gives me this weird sense of being somewhere completely different, like I'm on the Louisiana coast or something. South Carolina? Not sure, but not Wisconsin.
