It was saddled with the debt in that the $6B was borrowed against their assets and then placed right back on their shoulders by Bain Capital (that’s the “leveraging” part). Bain keeps their books clear of debt and if the bought company digs out, great. If not? They already got theirs.

But but, he’s a boy so it’s different.

This has always blown me away. It’d be like they charged you an annual fee for your tape deck or CD player to keep working.

I presume somewhere beneath the giant “Spoiler” tag? I don’t know - I didn’t read it b/c of said spoiler tag. It just seems odd to post spoilers when the show hasn’t even started yet. I’ve read all the books, so I already know what happens generally, but the show has also made some changes (which I think have served Read more

Why are there spoiler posts for a show that doesn’t even air for another week?

I’m hunting for some comparisons - until then the next question is how long does it take to make up the roughly $400-500 price difference in water and electricity savings? Read more

Does the statute of limitations run out this fast? I thought the last guys waited over a year to post the accomplishment. How long before they all have warrants out in every state they passed through?

Well sure. Or you just keep your working old-fashioned washing machine that doesn’t have these issues.

That’s certainly better. Does “lowest soil” work for your average wash loads?

I do enjoy NMS for this. I can walk out of my base and hop in one of my small ships, and take off to land in my freighter, or on one of my frigates where I can wander around inside.

My I recommend Mixed Dimensions for your next Trek online ship? I bought a smaller one, but you can get up to 12" for half that price, and the quality is good. Not Diamond Select Starship levels obviously (no printed item will be), but still very nice.

Maybe, but is it a significant difference? Our old-fashioned top loader is 17 years old and it has never had a smell problem.

Yeah, this is good that they’re working on a solution, but we’re still using my wife’s original washer and dryer she got for her apartment 17 years ago. It’s your standard, top loading-with-agitator washer. It gets clothes cleaner than the fancier front-loaders I’ve used. If we do a small load, we set it “small load”. Read more

Why would you need to leave a standard, top-loading washer open? The lid does not make a water-tight seal.

You know what’s easier though? Not having to do all that.

I’ve always felt the lines (and rear) of this car were let down by the front end. I’d want to nose in to every parking space so I didn’t have to see it. That rear-three-quarters-view tho... Read more
