You'll be telling your grandkids how this internet troll would blabber on about flying cars and whatnot and if you had just listened to him you wouldn't be stuck in some pleb middle class mortgage with an offset account.


Why is it hot garbage?

I know the feeling. Just finished the semi-finished basement this weekend. Old vinyl tiles (maybe with some asbestos?) out, indoor-outdoor carpet in. Laying carpet is a bigger job than I had realized.

Oh, well, almost done. Just the kitchen to go now.

Re: ***Official "It Lives, It Lives" Chat Thread***

Carpet is the one type of flooring I try to avoid because:

1)I hate it

2) I donít have the tools

3) I donít know how to do it

Re: ***Official "It Lives, It Lives" Chat Thread***

I agree with #1, but for a semi-finished basement that will have a dancefloor on fop of it, it's was a relatively easy kill.

#2 is BS. You hardly need any tools.

#3, do you even YouTube, bro?

Maybe your basement is different but in my basement I have a boiler, washer, dryer and all sorts of other plumbing/pipe so carpet is out

Iím surprised you didnít just go over top the vinyl.

I have 1950s era vinyl asbestos tile on good shape in the basement, but hideous. Going to encapsulate with vinyl plank in the future

Edit: specificity

Another problem I find with carpet is that the cost vs longevity is usually not great compared to other flooring materials. Than again I have 3 dogs

Re: ***Official "It Lives, It Lives" Chat Thread***

For me owning a home means being careful to tread the line of not being a slave to it. I already spend a decent amount of my weekend free time maintaining / doing a little upkeep (which I don't mind since I enjoy puttering on small doable tasks), but being a slave to constant large projects seems counter-productive to how a home should fit into your life *unless* you're super interested in these projects (and if so, whatever, knock yourself out).

Re: ***Official "It Lives, It Lives" Chat Thread***

Youíre not wrong GG,

In the beginning I woefully underestimated the amount of time, money, labor and stress these projects would take. I donít mean to be dramatic but the last few months my house has been a disaster because of the mess and clutter and constant reminder of things that need doing.

I would take it all back if I could to be quite honest. To me it wasnít worth it and I would have rather spent my time on more pressing self cultivation matters.

Hopefully the utility I gain out of aesthetics and god willing improved property value will change my mind in years to come, but itís been a slog like no other

Re: ***Official "It Lives, It Lives" Chat Thread***

speaking of carpet - my mother gave me a couple o nice oriental rugs. Seems she had em stored in her garage for quite a while. She also had dogs. Evidently flea pupae can lay dormant for upwards of 2 years (I guess body heat and vibrations wake em up or something). I have a cat but we put flea sauce on him 1x per month and he has no fleas. I return from my trip to vegas and I have the most massive flea infestation imaginable. I sit on my couch and suddenly my legs are peppered with these little phuckers. I hate using chemicals but I sprayed the sht outta my place and got em almost gone. Today is day 3. Nights 1 and 2 woke up freaking the fkuc out cuz I could feel those little bastards biting me.

I felt bad cuz the cat was holed up in a tiny little space and wouldnt come out cuz there were sooooo many and even though he had the flea sauce they would hop on for their final meal

Cdr G that's a shame, I'd love to hear Mason's theory of why McClellan was too aggressive. Miami I bet you took it better than this guy

This reminds me of a time when I was a kid. We had a single dog named shady (my first dog, Waddap gud girl). We had a massive flea infestation that seemed to be only in my bedroom.

One scorching hot summer night I was forced to hide between the AC bedroom or sleep in the living room. My dad (single dad) slept on the couch in our 1 bedroom house for about 13 years, what a stud
