There are dogs that can detect seizures in people. Maybe it could help you with an advanced warning.

3 of my buddies and I got our credit and backgrounds approved today to move into a place in Chicago in mid June. First time I'm going to be living in the city. So pumped!

What the hell is ProFlowers.com's business model? I ordered a mother's day bouquet for my mom and sister and according to FedEx tracking, one is being shipped from Ohio and the other from Indianapolis. They both live in Chicago. Aren't there florists in Chicago they could use to save on transportation costs?

 

They have a direct grower-to-consumer business model: no wholesalers, retailers, or local florists. In theory, the flowers should be fresher, longer this way.

Welcome to the next phase of your life. Moving out and driving up 57 will be one of the worst feelings ever.

First in a 3-part series about the March 2 F4 tornado that hit Southern Indiana. Pretty good read if you have any interest in tornadoes and/or live in a tornado-prone area:

 

http://www.courier-journal.com/article/201...look-path-storm

 

It was fast — and it was powerful. Many Indiana tornadoes produce winds no stronger than 100 mph. This one? Its swirling winds whipped up as strong as 175 mph.

 

On the Enhanced Fujita scale, which gauges a tornado’s ferocity on a scale of one to five, this tornado at times rated an EF-4. In short, it was one of the most powerful tornadoes ever to hit the state.

It wasn't for me. As much fun as college was, I was so ready to get out of that town I drove home right after graduation.

It obviously wasn't that thorough of a background check....

I'm about 8 years removed from graduating college (ugh, i'm old) and at least once a week I daydream about how awesome those 4 years were. Sigh.

You're right about that feeling. Except it was 55 for me.

General Bank Account Question:

 

So I moved to Minneapolis last August, but never opened a new bank account up here because I liked my Chase account (there are no Chase branches up here), and since my only "income" right now is student loans, I don't really have too much money to put into an account. Anyway, I need to open one up here now because it's (predictably) getting to be a hassle. But, my dad claims that I shouldn't close my current account (which I've had since I started college in 2007), because it would adversely affect my credit score to not have an account that's been open for a while. I've never heard this about bank accounts -- is it true? Ideally, I'd like to completely close my Chase ones (checking and savings, though I have a credit card through them too so I'm not sure how that will work) and open new stuff up here.

65 for me. It was weird and a bit depressing, but at the same time I was ready to start something new. Four years was the perfect amount of time to be there, basically.

Closing your longest-lived Credit card isn't a good move in terms of credit score if you don't have a long history. Closing the bank accounts is usually fine. It shouldn't be impossible to close the checking and savings account while keeping the credit card open, but they're a big bank so they won't make it easy on you.

That's the way I felt after I graduated. Damn, it was fun, but I was ready for something new.

And now you're ready for something "old" again as this real-world stuff isn't all that fun after a few years either.
