Not everyone can be a lawyer...
If every 34 year old had that net worth, the country would be in much better financial shape.
I was more taken aback by the bragging about his retirement accounts and savings than the amounts.
doesn’t shawn have an mba?
Shawn made that money by selling off topanga’s sweet ass
I only got it because I had to get some kind of graduate degree as part of my graduate assistantship position in the athletic department. There was really only 2 or 3 classes I liked, I basically hated the rest of it.
Reminds of an older guy I used to work with that said his move was to flash his Blue Cross/Blue Shield card to a prospective lady in order to seal the deal.
I saw Jason Heyward in the airport a year ago wearing those after the baseball season. So so fly.
I, for one, would like to see a breakdown of Shawn Hunter ‘s living expenses that allow someone making that little to save 20% of their income.
An old coworker of mine joked about doing that with his business card. I don’t think he ever got laid.
He worked at a school that gave him housing super cheap I believe.
Probably has a sugar daddy.
Housing was provided for most of my time working there, then I got a "promotion" and had to pay for it, but it was super cheap.
Not trying to say what I have done is realistic for most people though.
The cost of living in the parts of Central Virginia I have lived is pretty low. Around 10-12% less than the national average.
still, making $2200 a month and saving $400/month is impressive.
Hey Shawn Hunter can I borrow some money
Going from Blue Cross, to Cigna, back to Blue Cross I can see the appeal. It’s how I know I’m getting old, though.
My buddy used to leave behind his card on randos' pillows after sleeping over. His job title was Librarian
Because he enjoyed professionally handling their periodicals?
Need sock recs that don't make your feet sweat a ton? I have a decent walk to work and my feet get hot as hell by the time I get to the office.
That smart wool ..
For dress shoes or more with sneakers?
Who walks to work in their dress shoes??
I don’t have to walk to work so I wouldn’t know.
Ah man that sucks
I wouldn't consider them dress shoes, more a casual shoe (but not sneakers).
Big fan of my bombas, but they do get a bit warm.
Darn Tough has the best warranty but I’m right in the sweet spot of between sizes with them. They’re either too loose or just a hair too tight. I still wear Fits brand most days. They’ve gone from no written warranty to two years. I think they don’t do the lifetime deal like Darn Tough, REI etc because so many people abuse that system. Swiftwick socks are the coolest, fastest drying socks I’ve owned but they’re almost too thin for what i like and they frayed and looked bad sooner than some others I’ve mentioned. In all fairness I was really hard on them and they held up better for gym and cardio use than any Nike socks I’ve owned. I’m a big fan of Darn Tough if you can get a good fit. I’m a Fits Homer because their cut/fit feels like it’s tailored to my foot.
Reserved spot. In and out. No issues
I pretty much wear exclusively Balega socks. I like them.
Easily my favorite pair of socks. But at $12 per pair, there’s a reason I only have one. Just hard to justify that expense for athletic socks.
That said, wearing them on a day when I finish work late does actually guilt me into fitting in that late workout. “Come on, Brick... are you really going to skip on a day you’re wearing $12 fucking socks?”
They are insanely comfortable.
Pretty much just wear the hidden comfort and the silver ones all the time
Basically a knock off Big Green Egg for $330
I lit a boston butt on fire with one of these, they get hot fast. My BGE has never done that.
You need the "smoking stone" or what ever they call it to avoid direct heat. I've done about 15 boston butts on one of these without an issue but you need the head diverting stone. You also need to learn the vent combination that works. I usually do 1/2 on the lower vent and 1 to 2 on the top vent to stay at around 215 degrees all night.
yep used it along wtih a drip pan. The BGE has one similar. Never seen anything like it.
What kind of temps were you running? The only problem i've ever had is making the vent openings too small and choking out the flame overnight.
If you’re catching meat on fire you probably just suck at grilling and shouldn’t be blaming the grill.
It went from 170 to 700 degrees in ten minutes with a fire box only 4 inches from the meat in a chinese aluminum container. Flames licked around the heat plate and hit the meat. It's far shallower than the egg and doesn't regulate the temp as well. Pluses are its so easy to clean the firebox, just unsnap the bottom and slide out the tray with all the ashes. Cooks steak well just not a great smoker. Costco has a komoda BGE rip off that looks nice.
That happened because it was getting too much air. I've never had that happen without opening up the vents substantially or leaving the lid open. You may have had an air leak or bad seal somewhere.
Do you not have any thermometers? You just threw a Boston butt on a 700 degree grill?
As you can see from the picture, there is a thermometer built right into the top of it though it can't be relied on because its a metal container with a thermal blanket. I'm saying that this thing is tempermental and you get what you pay for. It is ok but 1/3 as good as a ceramic egg. The smoking was planed for say 8 hours, temps got low after a couple hours, add a little air, and then it shot up to 700 degrees and being close to flame because of the compact nature, it was cooking at 700. The BGE indirect heat raises 3 inches, note this one is completely flat.
Like I said earlier, you opened up the vents wayyyy too much.
Buy two of the BGE brand felt gasket material kits and replace the gasket along the lip of the grill, as well as in the area of the bottom air vent for a more air-tight seal. Makes a pretty big difference, IMO. Without checking I think I may have just replaced the bottom gasket on the lip of the grill, if you replace both the latch may not close properly.
Good choice on the Akorn. I bought one on sale years ago as a place holder until I was ready to drop more serious coin on a BBQ set up. The damn thing still gets the job done, so I haven't replaced it yet.
I've had my Akorn for several years and it's been great. Will second the need for the stone, but I rarely pull the bottom damper past the 1 setting and never have extreme heat issues.
new gauge for my truck to show boost and EGT
do you have NOS?
