Re: “Mensa mini-quiz

1. Palomino is a type of horse / breed and a color. It was classified as a horse type BEFORE the genetic component was understood. Yes, different breeds can have a tan color However, Palomino is still considered a "breed." Look it up on petbreeds.com

2. YES. Questions that are knowledge based are absurd. No MENSA test would quantify a person's intelligence quotient using questions that would appear on Jeopardy, or in Trivial Pursuit. The questions are designed to test your ability to see patterns where most people see randomness; to problem solve, etc.

3. How is the last question a test of intelligence? Really, do highly intelligent people know that "incorrectly" is spelled incorrectly by smart people? My IQ is over 170 and I didn't know that. Why would I? Is there a cutesy clue in the question itself, like a "wink, wink" isn't this cute?

The best way to go out and drink under $15? Go to the grocery store. Stay home.

Re: “A Broke Student’s Guide

I'm a bartender on Fourth Avenue, and I can assure you none of us worth our salt is going to serve someone five drinks within fifteen minutes. It's irresponsible to encourage students to binge drink as quickly and cheaply as possible.

Also, if you're too broke to tip, you're too broke to go out.

Stealing fountain drinks? Typical under educated socialist. Wait until somebody steals from you.

Way to go TW. Advise people how to rip off local businesses so that they have more drinking money.

Nicholas pretty much sounds like a loser. Thief, liar, drunk.
I don't think I'd want his blood, either.

Re: “A Broke Student’s Guide

From their website Kyle:

– Due to declines in gas prices and finance charges, the annual cost to own and operate a vehicle has fallen to $8,698, a nearly 2 percent drop from last year, according to AAA’s 2015 Your Driving Costs study. This research examines the cost of fuel, maintenance, tires, insurance, license and registration fees, taxes, depreciation and finance charges associated with driving a typical sedan 15,000 miles annually. In the United States, a driver can expect to spend 58 cents for each mile driven, nearly $725 per month, to cover the fixed and variable costs associated with owning and operating a car in 2015.

That assumes that you bought a brand new car, financed it at some interest rate. Then you suffered the immediate depreciation year after year.

I don't think this is you and me. I don't know anybody that bought a new car since Obama got elected.

Re: “A Broke Student’s Guide

They must have, Starving Artist, if the American Automobile Association is saying it. And my bad, it's actually been revised down to $8,698 per year (2015) to own and operate a mid-sized sedan. http://newsroom.aaa.com/2015/04/annual-cos…

Re: “My Stay at the No-Tel Motel

I moved to Tucson from San Diego almost a year ago. I live off Oracle in the Casas Adobes area, so on our way to Temple, which is on Country Club, we passed the No Tell. Just by reading the sign it sounded like you could catch a disease from staying there. Guess I was right.

$8,500 per year? Did they legalize crack?

Re: “A Broke Student’s Guide

Where is "ride a bike" on the list? Average cost of owning, operating and maintaining a car is $8,500 per year and a UA parking pass is over $650. You can save a lot of money and get nice muscle tone without joining a gym or attempting to get in to the Rec Center by opting to ride a bike. Just saying.

Re: “Border Love

Frank Stagg, I'm sorry you lost a friend to a drunk driver. What about all the Americans who are dead because of Timothy McVeigh, Jared Loughner, Sandy Hook, Columbine, et al? Do you propose we get rid of all white males?
