  • Is it ever a good idea to split the rent with an incoming, unemployed roommate?

    I have a friend who's thinking about splitting the rent with another friend. One red flag is that other friend has been out of work for a while. Even though the potential renter may have money saved up, it just seems like a matter of time before he'll stop paying rent since it's unlikely he'll find work soon due to the way the economy's been. It seems unkind, but the way to go for the current tenant appears to be to just tell the potential roommate to just find another place instead, as an unemployed renter just can't be good for the long run. Am I missing something?

  • Tips and suggestions for homeowner renting out part of his house?

    Considering renting out a room of my 2BR/2br house. Any suggestions to legally protect myself as much as possible? Situations like if he doesn't pay rent, how can I legally kick him out... do I need some legal documents with a lawyer or real estate agent first so that it's not just my word vs. his? I suppose a credit search, proof of employement, and interview with him to see what his habits are like are things I'd do before granting him a lease/agreement.

  • How do you handle un "untargeted cover letter"?

    When you sign up for Monster.com, Dice.com or apply for a job directly through a company's website, it asks for a resume and a cover letter. Does everyone else find it easier to just customize a cover letter for each job they're applying to on a job engine or directly through a company's website, rather than using the same, generic cover letter for each application? If you do submit a cover letter to the site but NOT a position, do you just use a generic cover letter that explains your skills and experiences, but not tailored towards any position?

  • Sermon at a church about dating, relationships, and porn. What to expect?

    Anybody ever been to one of these before? I have no idea what to get out of one of these things. A friend showed me the handout he received in the mail. It's a 6 week long sermon on Sundays, discussing dating, relationships, and porn in a non-judgemental atmosphere. Seems like another series of lectures disguised as a tirade.

  • Lie about other interviews/offers at a job interview?

    Is it acceptable or OK to lie about already having other offers or job interviews while being interviewed? When asked, I panicked and didn't want to seem too desparate, so I said I have a couple coming up. The recruiter did ask with which companies and where they would be held. I'm concerned this info may get passed along to subsequent interviews being set up by the same recruiter

    I'm aware that lying about other things in a job interview (positions held, periods of unemployment, pay, skills, education) can result in not getting an offer, or termination if they've already hired you, but I'd like someone with experience in this matter to chime in. For my other interviews not associated with this recruiter, I will just need to bite my tongue and be frank about my situation.

  • ways to cook meat with an omelet or some savory pancake?

    Question on the timing of how to integrate meat into an omelet, or its equivalent like a savory pancake such as crepes, or in my imminent case, some special mix used to make some Korean pancake dish with finely chopped ingredients (such as vegetables and seafood).

    For vegetables and cooked meat, there's not much that can go wrong.... if you add the vegetables meat too late and they turn out undercooked, it doesn't taste as good. There's no food poisoning from cooked/processed meat. However, if I'm dealing with raw meat such as small chicken cutlets, or ground beef, would that be a 2-step process?

    1) cook the meat until it's properly cooked in a separate pan

    2) cook the eggs/mix/whatever and vegetables in a separate pan, and then add the cooked meat when you're folding everything together.

    Is there a way to cook everything in one pan, but still ensure the meat is thoroughly cooked? If so, what's the timing on that?

  • Which came first, Apple's AppStore, or Cydia?

    Rumor is, AppStore came out after Cydia after Apple saw Cydia's business model working out so well for them. AFAIK, if Apple did have something like the AppStore, it was all first party apps and not as prominent as it is today with the tens of thousands available. That and a bunch of other things for Iphone/Ipod Touch like how copy and paste didn't come until later on where supposedly, jailbroken iPhones/Ipod Touches were experiencing all these features before Apple decided to implement them in future models/OSes.

    Please cite references! Would like to show some friends what's really what

  • Star Wars: The Clone Wars TV series, it appears there's really only one of them worth getting?

    For those of you who are fans of the show originally aired on Cartoon Network (specifically, the newer one done with CGI, as opposed to the hand drawn animated one with the same name), I'm guessing the only one you really need to buy is the complete first season comprising of 4 DVDs? The rest appear to be subsets of this box set product:

    --The same thing really, but on 2 BluRay discs (which I'm not interested in since I don't own a bluray player nor HD TV set.

    --separate products that consist of 2 through 4 episodes of that season

    --Not to be confused with the CGI movie that also came out that was a precursor to the TV series in terms of setting up the plot for this TV series

  • Any experiences with financial coaches?

    I've been seeing a financial coach for a couple of sessions, as referred to by a friend.

    Some info I've gotten from those sessions....

    --he works for Primerica.

    --works with clients to help achieve financial goals given various situations (family, retirement, etc.)

    --talks about the usual stuff when saving $$. E.g. 50% of income for necessary living expenses, 30% for wants, 20% for savings, etc.

    --he doesn't charge an hourly nor per incident rate. He claims he makes money from kickbacks when he sets up accounts such as Money Market accounts with companies like Legg Mason. His other part of his fee is referrals, such as what I'm requesting now

    --After some sessions, he checks back with his clients about once every six months to see how things are going.

    Can anyone add from their experiences and knowledge of financial coaches? I will say I'm skeptical anytime someone offers such services without charging a traditional fee of some sort.

  • Do you need need to report previous auto insurance claims if you're switching auto insurance companies?

    Let's say for example, you'd like to switch from Geico to..., All State.

    Let's say you have a claim you made to Geico where you got careless and crashed into a wall at low speed (10 mph). No police report was filed nor necessary. Would it be OK to tell All State that you don't have any previous auto claims? If there were police records or tickets, they'd be able to look those up for sure, but would they be able to call Geico and confirm this themselves?

    I ask because previous claims such as the example above can REALLY jack up the rates.

  • Would this be considered a "mansion" or "condominium"?

    A high rise of 28 stories tall. Rather rectangular in shape.

    Each Unit is purchased by a buyer. Inside of the unit is completely owned and maintained by the buyer. The outside areas (hallways, pool area, landscaping, elevators, etc.) are the responsibility of the condo association, of which each buyer's condo fee payments cover this.

    Looking for definitions given by the real estate community and/or by those US residents in typical urban, suburban, and metroplitan areas.

    Also some debates between friends of whether this is considered a "mansion", "condominium", or both

  • What kind of batteries should I use for an LED flashlight, heavy duty or alkaline?

    The LED flashlight uses 4 AA. Also, the box says if you're not gonna use the flashlight for extended periods of time, to keep the batteries out of the flashlight to prevent leakage and other bad stuff.

    >>>Just how long of non-usage would I want to keep the batteries out?

    >>>Would I have this same concern with alkaline batteries since they're supposed to be (more) leak proof?

  • is it typical to have multiple real estate agents?

    When you do end up choosing one over the others, I'm guessing you just thank the others for their time (assuming they did a good job) and tell them that you decided to go with another agent and wish them well? Is it that simple?

  • can a pet bird (canary I believe) recover from direct flash photography?

    A friend was taking a close-up picture of another friend's bird that was in a cage. He forgot to turn off the flash, so the bird got blasted by the bright light.

    A bunch of us got wondering whether if the bird would just shrug it off or if it would affect it in adverse ways. On one hand, birds in general have sensitive eyes. On the other hand, they may be resilient to this type of thing.

    The bird didn't have a beak (unlike say, parrots), or probably just a small one. It was gray and white feathered and pretty small. You make a fist and it would fit in it. That's all I remember about it

  • how much should you tip for a half priced meal?

    I've heard of such a related frugal vs cheap example. Specifically, it's OK to use a "buy one get one free of lesser value" coupon at a restuarant, but your tip should be based on the the full amount (after you add in any tax), and NOT the amount after you apply the coupon.

    If a restaurant has a promo that an entree or whatever is half off, should the tip be based on the original price, the 50% off price, or would you tip the amount somewhere in between the those 2 figures?
