    I'm ready.

    I've got friends/family that make a lot of money but are drowning in payments and have zero savings.
    Prepared for nothing, I'm stressed out for them.

    all the same variable that caused 2008....are in play today...times ten.

    I reckon it will end the same way. with the WRONG folks getting bailed out & more of our freedom being taken away.

    Father in law passed months ago. Executor of the estate notified us of the first offer on his home in months but said he feels inclined to wait because it's not close enough to asking.

    I told the wife It's not my inheritance but if it were I'd push to close the deal. This economy has more downside than upside and if it's in the dumpster next year the types of people who can still shop for a 2nd home in a recession will be looking to bust her balls big time.

    sooo...HP always wins the race. 1500 vs 1020

    and...it takes a Chiron 1/2 mile to beat a Plaid.

    which in the "real" world could never happen, as we only jaunt from stoplights.

    and the Chiron will lose every time.

    awesome.

    Watched that over the weekend with my dad and uncle in deer camp. They were both surprised you can buy that performance for $120-140K....and beat a $4M Bugatti.

    You get used to the driving characteristics quickly in the Tesla.

    One of the first times I drove the tundie after getting my M3, I left the keys in the ignition when I went into the gas station!

    I truly enjoy driving ours.
    It’s intuitive

    like using an iPhone

    if my wife can get in and take right to it, the engineers did an awesome job.

    I have almost exited the wife's car several times, without turning it off (push-to-start) out of habit.

    Same. I constantly reach for the gear lever up by the steering wheel when I drive the Tundra. Get out without shutting it off. Leave the keys in it. Forget to turn on lights. Let off the gas and quickly realize I have no regen. The list goes on!

    Tesla re-invented/re-imagined how we should use a car.
