I also thought "sinkhole" when I saw the news, but the ones I'd heard about before weren't near the coastline.  Here's one from a few years ago:

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-florida-sinkhole/guests-saved-as-florida-resort-building-falls-into-sinkhole-idUSBRE97B0D520130812

Info on sinkholes from https://www.usgs.gov/special-topic/water-science-school/science/sinkholes?qt-science_center_objects=0#qt-science_center_objects

Sinkholes are common where the rock below the land surface is limestone, carbonate rock, salt beds, or rocks that can naturally be dissolved by groundwater circulating through them. As the rock dissolves, spaces and caverns develop underground. Sinkholes are dramatic because the land usually stays intact for a while until the underground spaces just get too big. If there is not enough support for the land above the spaces, then a sudden collapse of the land surface can occur. These collapses can be small, or, as this picture shows, or they can be huge and can occur where a house or road is on top.

The most damage from sinkholes tends to occur in Florida, Texas, Alabama, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Pennsylvania.
IME broken water or sewer pipes can cause real damage.

I think that was a perfectly legitimate question and I am actually curious about the answer as well.

A bottle of wine and a thank you letter.

I need to drive in from Lakewood to Columbia hospital in the city, is there a spot in new jersey I can park for free or close to nothing and take a train/ferry/bus to the hospital. Or any other ideas where to park for cheaper would be greatly appreciated. TIA
columbia at the 160s? you can find street parking there, you may need to circle / wait a little. But can def be done. Depends on the duration of the stay you will have to move for street cleaning though

Often, even at the expense of severely harming my loving, warm, relationship with my spouse, children, parents, siblings and many of my friends and acquaintances. Even at the expense of discarding the lifestyle of my parents, grandparents etc.

Because i'm a truth follower.

I think this is the point that many of us have trouble understanding.
Just curious if you have the same reaction when (if ) you watch an amish documentary about someone leaving their community to pursue a "regular" life.

If you can work it out to back log as if you didnít pay.... split the profits with him.
dream land. LL has to mark up a sheet every month, what the base rent was, how much of paid, and how much arrears are remaining.

You can (as a tenant) designate payments to specific months..... as per NYS law...

Good day to bump this thread. It's National Bourbon Day today.
Pretty surprised to find out my company didn't give off!

haven't gotten around to this yet, but is it weird that Carvana and Vroom are both still giving me (high) quotes on my Nissan. Why wouldn't they just give me a message that they can't buy out Nissan?
Have you spoken to them or only an online quote? Algo is also giving online quotes. Its only once you speak to them that they inform you that they cant purchase it

Could be, but unlikely one month into the lease. The residual would probably still be too high.
+1, I'm trying to get out of my lease from august and i would be losing money.

A bigger PITA than having someone take over?
I would imagine. Especially when you are putting out a few thousand dollars upfront for it.

Can probably still make money on it.
Possibly. However, big PITA and you have to lay out the money

Did you check what Algo, Vroom, and Carvana are offering? You can probably make money on it.
You cant sell nissan directly to them. Would need to purchase first.

A Shlak is an assistant or more like a slave what does every silly thing you ask them to do without asking questions.
A must for any small business owner...

You need a past due notice from your landlord- that probably can't happen lease-wise til the 15th.
Why not ? LL is required to give 5 day late notice per HSTPA

I was wondering why we didn't hear of more terrorists getting eliminated through Covid over the past year.
They wore two masks

This is what I have been trying to explain. Americans have a time span of about 30 seconds. It is not that we don't care we just don't have the patience. So we see 30 second snippets on the news and form an opinion.
Especially if done in tik tok form with a girl in the thumbnail....
