On the other hand even with VR and a wheel I find I am able to get comfortable driving in real life on tracks I’ve been on before a bit faster in real life than in sims. In sims it takes a bit of time for my brain to get calibrated to the feeling of speed and distance and even after it is I am MUCH more consistent in Read more

To be clear: they will not be orbiting the moon on that trip as you imply. It’ll be a flyby on a free return trajectory.

“Sound” as we know it is really just waves within a medium such as air or water. The waves hit your ear drum and are interpreted as sound. The same waves interact with a diaphragm in a microphone and are converted to electrical impulses that can be played back through speakers to re-create the waves. In a vacuum there Read more

Sure but we’re not talking about having cash on hand we’re talking about not having debt on hand. Which to me is worth missing out on investing that capital when we’re talking about low 5 figure amounts. Difference between having an asset you can liquidate if there’s a crisis vs carrying debt into a crisis based on Read more

Inherently with a loan you’re the mechanism by which a financial institution making money. Your rate is a function of their risk. If you’re low risk you get a low rate. If you want to grow your money in a similarly low risk way you’re also going to be growing it at a low rate. Anyway my point is: it’s possible to Read more

If you’re in that position it shouldn’t be too hard to save up some liquid cash for a short period of time to make a purchase vs taking on debt on a depreciating asset that’s already a maintenance cost money hole. Any of those investments pay dividends?

If they’re going to LEO generally orbital rockets aren’t littering space with spent stages, the stages typically deorbit either deliberately or on their own over time.

The connections thing is def there and interesting. Like when I was on the factory tour our group was actually slightly oversized after a Canadian couple got snuck in last minute (normally huge no-no) when Porsche Canada called in a favor: they were parents of a guy that had bought multiple GT3s.

Here’s a question: let’s say its your first 911 but you are intending to track the car and have a history of doing motorsports stuff. You’ve been on the Porsche factory tour, you’ve been to the museum, you’ve done the ‘Ring. You’ve been tracking something else for years and now want the best. Does Porsche care? Also Read more
