Welcome to the forums sgt. flint :)

sgt. flint : (24 April 2017 - 11:38 PM)

Hey All......anyone out there from 2 years ago remember me?

sgt. flint : (24 April 2017 - 11:39 PM)

just started playing WOT again and looking for a clan or group

bergsteiger : (25 April 2017 - 08:31 AM)

Crazy night. Got all my wins AFTER I quit tooning. Very unusual.

The_Dad : (25 April 2017 - 08:36 AM)

similar experience last night... all my wins were BEFORE I started platooning

NeoGP : (25 April 2017 - 10:25 AM)

Hey Flint!

xtc4 : (25 April 2017 - 11:28 AM)

With new mm, having good players at the top of the list seems to make a huge difference. And platooning seems to almost always put you at bottom of the list. So perhaps it makes sense that you good players are winning when playing solo.

Archaic : (25 April 2017 - 11:14 PM)

Yes, platoons seem to be pretty gimped with 3-5-7

sgt. flint : (26 April 2017 - 02:12 AM)

Hey Neo, yes i remember you. any others from the old crew still running?

NeoGP : (26 April 2017 - 10:17 AM)

not sure man..I haven't played wot in 2+ years, alot of changes throughout the 5 clans

SGrant7 : (26 April 2017 - 12:05 PM)

Haven't been on much in the last few days, but are 2 man platoons fairing much better?

bergsteiger : (26 April 2017 - 02:38 PM)

Platooning doesn't seem as big of an issue as Tier 8s. Don't think I've had a single game that I was top tier in an VIII

I've done two rooms in my home with bamboo and it worked great, Just remember to leave that space for swelling of flooring. Can't really add anything to what has already been said.

Old_Fart_63 : (28 April 2017 - 05:05 PM)

The new laminate flooring "No nails" is a big change in flooring and it looks beautiful

Hate to break it to you ThatRandomJanitor, but when you get married and say I do that means I do not have any personal belongings anymore.  You'll see.

HaHaHaHaHa

 

 

 

.........join the dark side, married life is sweeeet.

I used to handle all of our finance except her cards she acquired prior to marriage. After a couple years she had some medical issues, and the bills overwhelmed me.  I was working full time, going to school and trying to keep track of utilities, cards, medical bills, and such.  She took over the mortgage and the medical payments, and just that little bit made a huge difference.

 

I think as our relationship has matured we tend to split some things more evenly...  Hell I even got her to cook a couple times.

 

As long as you trust her, why not let her handle it.  I guess as long as she's not paying things late and racking up debt, why not?

To answer the question posed in the subject line: No way...

 

When I met my wife 11 years ago, she had a bankruptcy on her recent record. She also had 6 credit cards of varying credit limits, all maxed out. All told, she had over $20,000 in debt.

The only debt I had at the time was a mortgage on my house.

 

11 years later, all her debt is paid off, but she still has problems with spending. We have one car loan (paid off in 6 months from now) and a mortgage on our new house. But then there's the one credit card we have, that we've been carrying a balance on for a year now.

She likes to spend money, and hates to pay any attention to how it gets paid off. Card is nearly maxed out? She'd just take out another one.

 

So, no way will I ever let her do our finances.. and thankfully she's more than happy to let me do them.

Whatever works with you as a pair would be great. Your mileage may vary. However, there are as many outcomes as there are people. Having been married as many times that I have. 2 did not remember our home address. 1 passed away and one thought she still had money if she still had checks. As I said ones mileage may vary

It's a to each his own.  My wife and i run seperate accounts completely.  We have no joint accounts, nor do i see that happening any time soon.  I keep a very strict accounting of the monthly costs and budget accordingly.  Some months i eat well, some months she decides to buy a camera and i dont eat as well.....

There is nothing wrong with your wife taking over the finances, but I would recommend that you keep control of any investing, long term/retirement planning.

 

I'm going to be sexist here, and I make no apologies for it, because I just don't buy into the whole modern, men and women are the same, malarkey.We are different and I don't believe that equality in all things is even a desirable outcome.The longer I live I realize evolutionary biology is pretty much the key to everything.

 

My experience is that women investors are generally very good at short-term financial planning and investment, and very good at saving money before they have kids, but money can run through their hands like water as soon as you have kids to raise.If you don't look after your long term finances when you have kids, you will be penniless by the time they leave your house.

Wife is the accountant and handles all the bills.  Why would you have your paycheck going into her account? Why not a joint account? 

 

Cheers,
