In other news, had to take the car back to the dealership. Thought the gas smell would disappear but its lingering around. Lifted up the access cover to the fuel tank (back seat) and what do I see? Fuel all over on driver's side. Its screwed on tight so dunno why its leaking out.

Unfortunately, the head tech isn't in till monday so they gave me a V6 Accord. Damn its fun to do second gear pulls. But that's where the fun ends. Sloppy handling, crap brake feel, quickly tapped the brake before a hard corner and ABS kicked in hard, sport mode sucks major donkey balls, manual mode sucks more donkey balls, etc. Doesn't even let me shift down to 1st upon slowing down and auto shifts up! WTF!

I am, however, able to spin the tires from a red light though!

Just your basic single stock stuff. Swing trading, so just a couple day holds. It's a relatively small portfolio while I get better at reading patterns, but it's been a lot of fun so far, so I might dump more money in soon.

Good luck, hope it works out! I have *some* money set aside as play money so I'll be joining in on the fun soon.

Maybe I should sell all my organs to buy 1 Berkshire Hathaway A share..

That's very dangerous, you're lucky you didn't go boom!

Hope you are taking this further with the stealership as this is very serious!!

It's actually surprisingly easy! I have a stockbroker friend that I get lessons from, but it's honestly really consistent and fairly predictable in a good bullish market. Unfortunately, it seems we're going to be going bear in the coming future so who knows. Maybe I should just start shorting.



Also, Formula Drift TX was awesome. It was super cool meeting @Knshro13, as well as Tuerck, Vaughn Gittin Jr, Forsberg, Dai, and Aasbo (damn that dude is tall).

He's right you know... you only need one kidney and a portion of one lung assuming you don't do anything that requires heavy breathing. If you get/have an auto you can get rid of your left leg too. That would save about 50lbs on me
