Nice side gig. I have been lucky with selling/buying cars at profits occasionally, but I have never had the balls to do this proper. Does it happen occasionally that you take a loss?

That sounds like the most classic Hollywood movie's script. Just add in some love story.

Just 2-3 weeks ago, and he didn't go into details. The way he said it, I was expecting bribes though, yes. How are you familiar with the topic?

Well, it’s a funny comeback to attack the person writing a comment rather than saying something with content, but I invite you to try. I’ve been interested in politics all my life, and I am not saying the US should adopt every policy every other developing nation offers (among them proper unemployment and health Read more

This, exactly. A 2008 Toyota falling apart does not fit the narrative. We just sold our 2002 Camry after it failed tech inspection here in Norway. It took a literal 5 seconds to sell the car to Nigeria. Took the ad down after 4 minutes and 30 people had tried to call or message me, but nr. 1 got it.

Seen from Europe, the way Americans treat themselves in regard to the truths you spill here remain baffling. I just can't get my head around how people can repeatedly vote against their interests.

Bolts are already kind of the magic deal of the EV world. Imagine all the woggety-woggety-wag guys hearing it can burn, too, and how they'll discuss it at length. Massive deals incoming!

Exactly that. It's a sensible law that has a stupid side effect.
