  1. If you want a list of things that are wrong with your house I suggest having the in laws over.

  2. Doesn't your location have permitting that would require the system to be designed to be able to treat your effluent properly for the environment you are putting it into?

  3. It has permitting now. No idea what was going on when the house was built.

  4. I have one. Put in around 2001. Cost $7000 when the anaerobics were around $3000. Mine has two pumps. One to move the sewage within the system, one to run the sprinklers. The pumps quit within months of the warranty running out. $700 each. An annual maintenance contract is required $300/yr. Also you are supposed to add chlorine tablets monthly, for sanitation and to reduce mosquitos. One problem I had was with the sprinklers. They are on a timer so that they only spray at night to empty the treated sewage. Well, one of our toilets hung up, and kept running at night. Filled up the tanks, but the sprinklers emptied them. Until daylight. Then the timer turned them off. Now, the toilet overflow had no place to go. Flooded the house. I much prefer the old fashioned gravity feed systems. Cheaper and more dependable.

  5. Thanks. The aerobic system will solve our high water problems but perhaps introduce new problems. We can probably just get new lines installed at half the cost of a new system but will still have some issues with lots of rainfall. As I said on another comment we actually have two septic systems. One is failing now but works with lots of rain. The other works now but not for the few days of the year when we get a ton of rain. If we got the aerobic system we would move to just one.

  6. I remember being nervous after we left go of Mark Richt that Georgia would be stuck in purgatory. So happy I was wrong and Kirby Smart could lead us to a potion dynasty. GO DAWGS!

  7. Me too. I was a prof at UGA and they would invite some of us to practice and dinner once a year. By chance I sat next to Richt twice. He even asked if he could sit next to me.

  8. I round up from .3 instead of .5 and then tell students all emails asking for additional rounding will be ignored. I will usually look at the edge cases and bump up a student if they have turned everything in etc.

  9. The downside of expanding the House is agenda power would likely be further centralized within the relatively small number of leaders.

  10. It’s capped at 435 cause they can’t fit any more seats in the house chambers. I can’t imagine the expense of expanding them.

  11. That’s not true at all. You can fit at least 450 on the floor and then there is the gallery seating.

  12. We took our kiddo to Chickasha. Definitely walkable and there is a merry go round too.

  13. Econ is notorious for asking questions during the talk.

  14. Notorious for asking questions before even having finished the first introductory slide(s).

  15. I once had a question on the title slide!

  16. If you make over $300k in w-2 income you generally can’t deduct rental “losses” from your taxes owed on wage income. There might be a path if you are a full time real estate professional but I think that is hard with a full time job and rental properties.

  17. I really don’t know the STR laws but a quick google search says yes with several buts depending on how you go about the STR. Generally though buying a rental property for the tax right off isn’t a great deal. It might be under some circumstances though.

  18. Norman has two Waffle Houses with one 3.3 miles to go the stadium. I think we need one more.

  19. That’s about my goal. I’m 46 and my kiddo is three. She can drop me off at Springer during her first college spring break.

  20. My uni has 34 vice presidents, each making more than the average faculty member with a full-time teaching load.

  21. We have about 18 VPs. Looking at the list it's:

  22. Yeah, that's a good list. It gets ridiculous at institutions where there are twenty redundant or overlapping initiatives running under different names with different VPs.

  23. Oh, we have overlapping and redundant initiatives, just not a lot of VPs. ;) I think my university is generally well run though.

  24. I'm sure this isn't the correct answer but I just ran into the same issue. I bought one of these, trimmed down the bottom piece until it fit and then put it in the hole. I then put a PVC cap on top.

  25. Herschel Walker is going to vote from Texas

  26. The answer probably depends on the IDC rate.

  27. This looks made up to try to further ignite the war against the liberal arts and social sciences.

  28. It’s real. I know plenty of people who know the tweeter.

  29. How old are you and do you want a mortgage when you are retired? Are you disciplined enough to take the extra payment and actually save/invest it?

  30. I'm one of the millions of Americans who's signed on to various consumer class action claims over the years, and have found that the typical payout for a plaintiff is something like a $10 gift card that I can use on Amazon. Meanwhile, the plaintiffs' attorneys get millions. So, thanks but no thanks.

  31. My favorite class action win was four cans of tuna.

  32. I tell my students I will give them a passing grade if it means avoiding the draft but anything else they are on their own.

  33. Someone is going to be creative and declare for the draft in some semi-professional league.

  34. Ha. I’ve actually had several students drafted to the NFL. I’d like to say all of them passed but that wouldn’t be true.

  35. I also do a decent amount of media and it’s always harder when the comms folks are involved. It’s not uncommon to get a call and be asked to do an interview that day.

  36. Check out the nitecore headlamps. They are light and rechargeable so you can ditch the extra batteries.

  37. I share your pain. At this stage in my career another paper means little to me. Some of my most high impact papers recently have been posted to a pre-print server but never officially "published" because I don't want to deal with the publishers or to continue providing them free content. (to be clear, I still publish papers with students in peer reviewed journals since they need those for their nascent careers).

  38. My favorite copyedit “mistake” is when Indian American Bobby Jindal was changed to Native American Bobby Jindal.

  39. Given your age and the uncertainties you list - I'm right there with you. I totally get it. That's exactly how my wife and I were.

  40. Just want to point out that “maxing out” can really vary depending on your job and income. My wife and I have access to a 403b and 457b on top of a pension and 401a. The 403b and 457b max out is $41k each this year alone.

  41. I haven't updated recently but we're hovering around zero. We broke even late 2021. But then we got hit with our well failing, leaking roof, and my spouse leaving their job that destroyed our emergency fund.

  42. We replaced our well pump in May and now I think the septic is going. It never ends.

  43. If you had previously thought that having a million dollars locked in retirement accounts and equity in a home comes with all the niceties traditionally implied with the term "millionaire", then ya, you learned something. Having a networth of a million doesn't exactly make you the monopoly man

  44. When I hit that number a top hat, cane, and monocle arrived in the mail. Wait, that’s Mr. Peanut, never mind.

  45. I don’t know how all med schools operate (zing!) but lots of med school faculty have high salaries because they generate income via their clinical work. In fact, most are expected to pay their own salaries. Teaching a class or two a year might earn you 10-20 percent but most of the high salaries are due to regular MD work and also grants and contracts.

  46. The med profs that don’t do much clinical work make low salaries compared to doctors, they are all still paid more than humanities profS. They have a trade off between clinical and research with financial ramification. But it is very different than say English.

  47. My wife was in a medical school as a PhD and it was tough because she had to bring in enough grants to cover her salary. Her salary was probably higher than a regular department equivalent but lower than MDs. She’s in the regular department now and the grants now go towards summer salary and consulting money. It’s a nice bonus.
