    Things you just don't get

    I can kind of see how this got out of hand, maybe. Nobody reported it - Lochte just made the story up for his mom, who took it public, which prompted the investigation. They all had a number of chances to stop the train - why they didn't is anyone's guess, but the initial stone that started...

    Things you just don't get

    Story is now that Lochte and his buddies broke down a locked gas station bathroom door and were convinced to pay a few bucks to fix it before moving on. They were clearly not robbed, given that they still had wallets and watches and phones etc. upon arriving at the Olympic village. Video...

    Random Food Questions Thread

    What's the current verdict on salting eggplant? Everyone and their mother always tells you to salt it to pull out moisture and "draw out the bitterness" but I've not necessarily found eggplant au naturel to taste unpleasant to begin with. The biggest problem I have with eggplant is just how...

    Alden Flex Welt Unlined Chukka

    I have these in snuff suede and they are just about my favorite pair of casual shoes. Comfort factor is off the charts. I've been thinking about picking up a pair in dark brown as the ultimate travel shoe. Curious about people's opinions of how far up the formality scale I can push this shoe...

    The Hong Kong Tailors Thread

    I ended up going back to Peter to have some shirts made. The prices keep going up and the quality does not match. Too bad AC has gone up so much in cost; their shirts have held up very well for me. I guess I'm still a man without a home; need to find something in the middle. No recent Chan...

    In HK now; I've been a longtime Lee Baron guy and still love Peter, but looking for a few upgraded shirts. How is WW Chan these days for shirts? I remember they didn't have the softest collars back when, not sure if that's been something they've addressed. I've also bought from Ascot Chang...

    Cool furniture, design objects and desiderata

    I need a few hanging pendant lamps for our office, which has just been fitted with new cubicles with a more modern look. We have a few informal conference areas now with standing-height worksurfaces and stools, and I'd like to make them look a bit more anchored with the use of hanging pendants...

    Foo - there are some pretty nice duvet covers on Overstock.com. I have a couple of them myself.

    The Home Ownership Thread

    Holy crap, that rain showed me last night. Our basement was a flood zone. Water was coming in in places I'd never seen it before. It must have literally burst a hole in the foundation - we have some china on a shelf that is filled with dirty water - the china is at least 10 inches from the...

    The Home Ownership Thread

    Other than in the largest, most clearly public areas in my house (entry, living room - which are oak), most of my house has heart pine floors. No worries Lefty, I obviously have to get the roof to a certain point before I can even think about finishing anything. I'm not going to replace the...

    The Home Ownership Thread

    So they found all kinds of roof rot in my house. I'm not surprised - it sat idle for years before we bought it. We've known that ideally it could use a new roof, but slat roofs are no joke, so we've been living with it. No major leaks or anything, but things had been starting to sag in places...

    The Home Ownership Thread

     Glad to help. I've had a lot of fun with this little "hobby" over the years; auction bargain hunting is great fun, to boot, even when you lose. I may actually sort of be in the market myself again right now; it's possible I could go check out the very rug I linked. Yeah, I think this...

    The Home Ownership Thread

    Work started on our attic today to convert it from a spooky old attic into a playroom for our daughter. It's about 6'-2" to the joists in the center, but only about 3-4 feet of that with the roof sloping down on either side. Also some structural shoring up that needs to be done as the roof is...

    Re: Rugs - Quality Persians are easily had at auction for next to nothing. It is hard to know what you're getting into if you're a novice, as some rugs will go for thousands and others for nothing where to an uneducated eye they look the same - but hey, use that to your advantage. Room-size...
