You got a great deal on that loan, though. Don’t beat yourself up, it wasn’t a terrible decision. Like, if you had plunked down 20k on a used Italian car without a warranty and then had to pay payments AND all kinds of crazy maintenance costs... Then maybe it would’ve been a bad decision. Depending on how pretty the Read more

So $2600+$854 for depreciation and interest on loan equals $3454. That means you had reliable transportation (a necessity for your job aka your income) for four years at $863/year. I’m ignoring maintenance and insurance, because those costs have nothing to do with the loan. Also, buying used means you saved money on Read more

My wife’s mini has a check engine light that will sporadically turn off on its own. It will come on again only to go out again. I just assumed that was a result of that legendary British wiring.

When we see the printed word in GoT, it’s in English. And “Hodor” is a contraction of “Hold the Door.” His name isn’t “Graneb” or “Coldak” or something like that. Which means they’re speaking English. Which means that Game of Thrones takes place in a Westworld park. That’s why everyone is able to travel so quickly.

Can we all agree that the only thing social media has done is to make everyone argue. This contrasts deeply the fuzzy words zuck says about “connecting the world.” I can’t even go on that network anymore. It’s like walking into a room full of people arguing. Not my idea of a good time. Fake news articles. Fake Read more

I’m really surprised that after years and years of breathless fawning over tech titans of Silicon Valley by our integrated marketing and communications tech media, we’d end up with a story like this. It’s not like Mark Zuckerberg went to folks like Peter Thiel and Yuri Milner for early investment capital or anything.

People can have leisure and freedom now (and HAVE been doing it for decades). But they choose instant gratification and consumerism. They choose to have the expensive new car and iPhone every couple years, and eat out all the time, instead of putting that money into an Index fund and paying off debt.
