TIL I need to reevaluate what I am being payed. I can't afford a Corvette and I basically do 3-4 jobs at work.

Well, to be fair, it is a C6, but it has less than 40K miles on it.

And yet how many drive SUVs or trucks which cost more than that Corvette? Probably to insure, to run and maintain, and to buy.


Fucking SUVs are a scourge. They deserve to die. Bad at everything but ego boosting.

i don't even remember where i heard it-- it's a true story, if i figure it out, i'll even give credit...

dude buys a 2 year old CPO bmw m3. something like $30k out the door.

dude pulls up to work the first day after, and immediately starts getting shit from his coworker about "who's the high roller!" and "mr. moneybags and his expensive car!"

end of the day, that coworker leaves in his 1-year old, platinum edition f350 that is still worth north of $80k on that day...

My Fizzers came today. They are just like I remember as a child. Totally different from Smarties, and they do fizz. So excite.

TIL I have a real boring life.

I read the book, didn't see the movie. I saw the Right Stuff attitude... actually, I guess it wasn't really "attitude"... I saw the Right Stuff behavior?... when hang gliding. Some people just had it.
