DaemonFCYeah, my main use for the Impala is drive Mandy to work and grab food at where he works.Jul 31 01:26
DaemonFCSo I don't put many miles on the car.Jul 31 01:26
DaemonFCIf we go somewhere in Illinois and it's no further than half the state down, I usually take Metra and the CTA and Pace.Jul 31 01:27
DaemonFCSo I only put about 400-500 miles a month on the car, normally.Jul 31 01:27

-TechrightsBot-tr/#techrights-dpaste: Sum of Channel PopulationsJul 31 01:28
DaemonFC$37-39 on a month where I just use the car to take Mandy to work and grocery shop, and then over there, the next cheapest is like $90-100 for Geico or Progressive. Every month.Jul 31 01:28
DaemonFCSo even if I have a high month because we got out and saw mom over in Indiana or we went downstate for some reason, it's not going to average out higher than the flat rate companies.Jul 31 01:28

schestowitzsears_hardware: looking....Jul 31 01:30
DaemonFCI'd never pay more than $40-50 for liability coverage, ever.Jul 31 01:30
DaemonFCWith some companies and in some states, going from excellent to bad credit can more than double your car insurance premiums.Jul 31 01:31
DaemonFCGeico sent me a "Fair Credit Reporting Act" notice that said "Factors" from a credit report were the reason I didn't get their best rate possible.Jul 31 01:32
DaemonFCSo I just have to stick it out with some cheap and sketchy company that keeps me legal to drive until this bankruptcy is older.Jul 31 01:33

DaemonFCOf course, there's lots of problems with having roommates, not the least of which is they can move out and break the lease and the total rent must then be paid by the remaining tenants, who are jointly responsble for the entire amount.Jul 31 11:26

DaemonFCMinceR, Lake County recently moved to get rid of a "mosquito abatement district" because it would "reduce inefficiency". Then I noticed something amusing.Jul 31 12:59
DaemonFCThe district overtaxed residents for years and had accumulated about a million dollars in unspent funds that were sitting in a bank account. :)Jul 31 12:59
DaemonFCIn the mean time, it owns no equipment and has nobody on the payroll because it contracted with private companies to spray for the mosquitoes, which is honestly probably not even being done.Jul 31 13:00
DaemonFCKnowing how this state works.Jul 31 13:00
MinceR:>Jul 31 13:01
DaemonFCSo it seems like a pretty easy score to just get rid of the district, keep the contracts, take the million bucks, and then keep the mosquito tax unchanged so that it keeps providing a "surplus" and they can say they didn't raise anyone's taxes.Jul 31 13:02
DaemonFCWhich will technically be true.Jul 31 13:02
DaemonFCIn fact, they say that spraying for mosquitoes is harmful to the environment and we should do it less.Jul 31 13:02
DaemonFCTranslation: They cut down the sprayings and sure people get bit and sick but it saves the criminals running the county money that they can spend on themselves, so what the hell.Jul 31 13:03
