That means the National Body found out about what was going on down in Georgia, was disgusted, and shut them down before UGA could slap them on the wrist with a suspension, or nothing. It doesn’t seem like UGA was going to do anything. Read more

The tier carrier latch is powered (of course its powered), and is run by the trailer light control module IIRC.

There have been two or three of those Dream Home/Urban Oasis homes that I might have considered taking. Though I wouldn’t decide on anything until I found out the tax assessment and possible HOA fees, and also whether the place can be sub-leased until I could move there. These would only be in locations where I would Read more

not to mention that the IRS is going to tax you on the “winnings” anyway.

I HATE the time crunches that are always on those shows! You shouldn’t be rushing to create a house! I hope on most shows it’s just manufactured for the audience but honestly, no, don’t ask that guy to hammer stuff for 21 hours straight and switch the layout at the last minute and expect it not to be a black mark on Read more

I don’t know how much Pennington himself is to blame. Like most reality programming, it was probably driven almost entirely by producers wanting shit that looked good on camera. People forget but the original Extreme Makeover was not a home edition but a show about plastic surgery. It came from a dark place where no Read more

Heresay: I have some friends who were volunteers on an Extreme Makeover project. They said Mr. Pennington was more interested in spending time in his luxury RV with makeover groupies (???!!!) than actually doing anything.

Uncured Slab?! Hope you like your carpet doubling as a roller coaster and the house stinking like chemicals forever after it soaks up heat and vapors coming out of the concrete. Read more

I’ve entered those Dream Home giveaways BECAUSE there’s a cash payout option. I don’t want someone else’s house. Yes, they’re designed to the nth degree. They’re pretty and have cool stuff. But I can take the nearly $1,000,000.00 payout, get myself a really nice place, in my area, for $200k cash. AND buy some rental Read more

lol, so true. That’s not even the major sin, though. This was on during the time when we were majorly renovating our home and because we were fuckassbroke, we had to do it all ourselves. Which meant learning. A lot. Not just how to do things, but I had to learn why they had to be done that way in order not to be Read more

It’s beefy because the entire mechanism has to swing to the side on its own. Normally, SUVs with rear-mounted spares (Land Cruiser Prado, Wrangler, Disco I and II, Bronco) have rear doors that swing to the side and include the carrier on/within them. The Cayenne, however, uses a normal lift-gate, and Porsche probably

Good on her. There’s any amount of shame to go around at college campuses right now, but Greek life is a huge contribution to the problem. Our administration has been cagey about reporting numbers, but it’s clear that we’ve had at least six fraternities and sororities so far that have been the source of outbreaks. Read more
