    Hit and Run accident

    I’d go with Garmin with a combined Nav system. I have a Garman Nuvi from 2011 and it’s great.

    Hit and Run accident

    They didn't raise rates when I filed my last claim. My insurance rates are incredibly cheap. My last at fault accident was in 1982. I only have one traffic ticket from 1981. I could always sign up at Geico. They have a discount if you own Berkshire Hathaway shares. They're only $315,000 right now.

    How should you adjust to a big server going for 2 1st serves?

    Use a heavy racquet. With a heavy racquet, you only need to get the ball on the strings. My old 17+ ounce racquets - you could hit the ball on the frame, strings, sideways - you wouldn't feel the ball.

    3 days until National Cheeseburger Day

    I think that the beef industry would sue you if you ate a IF or BM cheeseburger on that day.

    Hit and Run accident

    I have considered those for a while. They only record front and back. I think that this car drove at me at around a 45 degree angle and a dashcam wouldn't catch that. It would catch is license plate. What I really need is satellite data following the car to its residence.

    Hit and Run accident

    If you won't answer questions, yes, you could get arrested. But that didn't happen. From my perspective, I just want his name and insurance company. If he refuses to provide a report for his insurance company, I believe that they will just accept my account and declare the owner liable. And...

    Are you getting a flu shot?

    Son got his today at work. He sent me a link to the CDC Flu Map at https://www.cdc.gov/flu/weekly/usmap.htm Massachusetts is already at Widespread. MA is typically the earliest and most intense state for flu. NH is a Local Activity - we get it because we're next to MA. My manager has had it for...

    Are hospitals in the U.S really this expensive?

    I want to mention that these positive operating margins that we see, small that they be, are in the context of an 11-year bull market with very low unemployment. These thin margins may very well go negative in the next recession.

    Are hospitals in the U.S really this expensive?

    Carle Hospital system had operating margins of 4.7% in 2015. U Florida Health had operating income of $114 million on revenues of $1.467 billion. That's an operating margin of 7.7%. Decent but certainly not a killing. Novartis had an operating margin of 21.8% in 2018. My general impression...

    It could have been even worse. I could have had cancer. Oh, wait.

    Are hospitals in the U.S really this expensive?

    Which hospital? Is it a non-profit or for-profit hospital? What are their operating earnings like? Do you have a link to their financial statements? A lot of stuff that you read in the news regarding finances is rubbish. You need to look at the actual financial statements.

    Are hospitals in the U.S really this expensive?

    Gilead Sciences was $110/share four years ago. Today it's $65.79. They're getting killed, not making a killing. If you want to show that an industry is making a killing, show their earnings and their charts. The reality may be the opposite of what you believe.

    Are hospitals in the U.S really this expensive?

    You could get hit by a car or a terrorist bomb and have hundreds of thousands in cost. Even while eating right.

    Are hospitals in the U.S really this expensive?

    The hospitals aren't doing well. UVAH, the hospital in the original post loses $500 million on an operating basis per year.

    Just ban the bad human drivers. I came up with a list of where human drivers are better than autonomous vehicles.

    Hit and Run accident

    The insurance company got back to me. They will send someone to my house to do the appraisal. The car can be driven but I'd rather drive it as little as possible. Fortunately I have another car. We do not know who the other driver or owner is but the insurance company will put in a request to...

    Are hospitals in the U.S really this expensive?

    Are you sure that your number for Medicare doesn’t include Medicaid? I generally see the numbers for Medicare and Medicaid together around 25 to 27 percent.

    Hit and Run accident

    They are taught to stop after an accident in Driver's Ed and I'd guess that there's at least one question on the exam about it. They just ignore it after they get their license.

    Are hospitals in the U.S really this expensive?

    Could you provide a source for your claim. The Federal expenditure charts that I’ve looked at have lower percentages of the Federal budget for Medicare and Social Security.

    Hit and Run accident

    The dent indicates that he hit me at a 45 degree or greater angle. My son suggested 20 degrees or greater and his understanding of physics and math are a lot better than mine. That's pretty hard to do on a highway. His front, driver's side bumper should be damaged. It's possible that there's...

    Hit and Run accident

    I gave testimony at a Planning Board meeting two months ago. An abutter took down a bunch of trees on our property and built a parking lot on our property. The developer laid out a plan to recompense at a meeting and I got up and said that their plan was inadequate and that it was in no way near...

    Hit and Run accident

    In no-fault states the insurance company will pay for your damages if you can identify the other vehicle and it's determined that it wasn't your fault. There is some inference of guilt with flight. I sincerely hope that there is no challenge to my account of the accident and I followed the...

    Hit and Run accident

    In New Hampshire, hit and run is a Class B Felony. But the punishment is the same as a misdemeanor if there is no bodily damage. The delta, of course, is what goes on your record.

    Hit and Run accident

    The financial penalties, sure. But I don't think that the criminal charges would apply if the driver couldn't be identified. Of course the police could call in the household for questioning or bring it to a grand jury but this isn't the kind of place where that stuff happens unless there's other...

    Hit and Run accident

    In my previous accident, the car was about five years old with probably 80K miles. They replaced the rear bumper, trunk lid and the passenger's side rear quarter panel and I believe that they used new parts. The car is two years old with low miles - I'd be annoyed if they used used parts. I...

    Hit and Run accident

    The last loan we had was paid off around 1999 or 2000. I really don't like borrowing money. Financing is a profit center - they may be adding financing fees. If there is a true discount to be had, then that can be negotiated to reduce the price. You generate wealth through recurring passive...

    Hit and Run accident

    Yeah, the last time someone hit me was a while ago and I was estimating costs based on that incident. The mirror alone looks like it could be four figures. Replacing the whole door would be very expensive. I wonder if they remove the door from the sheet metal, replace the sheet metal and then...
