RE: Building Permit Cost per State and City for New Home

Here in Hillsboro, just west of Portland, you can expect to pay several thousand on new construction just to connect to water and sewer. Then you still have to pay other development fees and pay for different kinds of permits.

RE: Ford, GM and Chrysler cash in on posh pickups

It's the same with SUVs. Most have a trim level that is very luxurious. Grand Cherokees come with 20" wheels unless you get the off-road II package that substitutes 18" wheels.

RE: NFL FOX Comedian...Riggles???

Some of his are halfway funny. I usually just read the paper during the pregame show and hit rewind if I hear they are talking about the Vikings which isn't very often. :(

RE: Have the Police stopped enforcing our traffic laws?

Back when I first learned to drive, it felt like our 1975 Dodge Omni was going to shake apart when we got up to 85 MPH. Now our Jeep rides so nice that 85 doesn't feel any different than 55.

RE: Have the Police stopped enforcing our traffic laws?

The speed limit is 80 in Utah and Idaho. I was going to Boise recently and Going with the flow meant 95. Fairly common here in Nv also, though the limit is only 75. Strange. We drove from Oregon to Louisiana and back and there were very few vehicles going more than 10 MPH over the limit on rural interstates. I kept it at 5 MPH over and still had very few people pass me.

RE: West Coast residents...Cascadia Subduction EQ could be near.

Shoot, they can't predict the weather 2 weeks, 2 days with accuracy, in advance and now they're going to predict earthquakes. Riiiiiiight. There is evidence of a cascadia subduction zone quake every 400-600 years over the past 3,500 years and Japanese records indicate the last one was 314 years ago.

RE: No Shave November

I grew a beard once for 8 days and it bugged the heck out of me. I was on a geology field course in the boonies so I also didn't have a shower over those same 8 days and smelled like body odor and campfire smoke which increased the unpleasantness.

RE: scoring in sports

In the early days of football, touchdowns started as 2 points, later going up to 4, 5, and the current 6. Field goals were worth 5, then 4, and then the current 3.

RE: Let's fix football....once and for all

Why not have helmets with foam on the outside of the shell along with padding inside? http://i.usatoday.net/sports/_photos/2012/08/06/Helmet-covers-are-a-controversial-trend-7A2102F7-x-large.jpg

RE: Let's fix football....once and for all

I think we should go back to the old rules where players played on both sides of the ball and if you went out of the game, you could not come back in until the next quarter. That would eliminate some of those huge players who can run fast in short burts, but don't have the stamina to play very long. Not to mention the players of the leather helmet era were nowhere near the size of the behemoths lumbering around the field these days.

RE: Question about a rain gauge vs. empty tuna can

Rain amounts can vary by quite a bit even in just a few miles. I remember an experiment where they put a rain gauge every 1/2 mile over an area in Northwestern Minnesota and typical summer showers didn't spread the rain very evenly. It seem as tho the simple answer would be to watch the weather on TV.They usually tell how much rain fell.(They may not be so good at telling how much WILL fall.)

RE: Tom Megliozzi Dies 77

My favorite joke from their show was identifying fluids on your garage floor. They said if it's yellow and smells bad, the cat's litter box probably needs to be changed. :)

RE: Which College Football Game(s) Are You Watching Today?

North Dakota State wins 31 in a row by putting away a good team rather easily.

RE: Saving $5.00 Bills

I use what little loose change I collect in the self-checkout lines at the supermarket. That way I can earn interest on the money that would have otherwise come out of the checking account. Our credit union pays much higher interest rates on checking accounts if we use the debit card 13 times per month. It still isn't much, but it's better than zero percent. :)

RE: Going back to cash

Tips are taxable income. I pay taxes on all the money I earn, why shouldn't everyone else? There is a third alternative to cash or credit. Has anyone used the "gift credit cards" you can get in places like Wal-Mart... The ones you can add a specified dollar amount to? These don't have any personal info on them but can work just like a credit card. Wonder if the discounts would be the same at the merchants? BTW... if you are tipping in a restaurant, please be kind and leave cash even if you are paying for the meal with a credit card. Some of the restaurants have been taking taxes out of the tip money before giving it to the waitresses/waiters.

RE: Delete

The logo on the video references Australia so the biker was going the wrong way down the road.
