Lot of breweries in that area.  Better limit tasting to shot glass size or one would be visited the last few in a shopping cart.

Lol. Nah can hit 5-6 and be ok

I agree. I see those every so often and wish we had looked and driven one before settling on the CX5.

The CX5 is a nice vehicle too. 

I would only spend V60 money if the reliability is still there and I’ll be able to drive it hard for a good 10 years at least. I own a Jeep now and I know I’ll have some issues within a year or two.

Ha, funny you mention the jeep. My wife rented a wrangler 4-door for a few days and fell in love with it. So much so, she wants to possibly trade the Cx5. I've never been a jeep guy, especially wrangler, but a few people she's asked about it said they really liked theirs.

My cousin owns a 2 door, manual transmission Wrangler with massive off road tires and loves it. He’s up in NH every weekend, so it suites him well. Those Wranglers do hold their value since they do have a loyal following. Not the most practical car, but it certainly evokes emotion.

I might be in the car market soon. I keep going back and forth between Forester, Outback, and CX5. Currently have CX3 and love it, but too small.

I feel ashamed every time I turn the starter and settle the wah-wah to hear the purr of the internal combustion engine's toxic fart factory's slow poisoning dose-contribution of the hour.

It's just something we don't consider - like ... "flying" to a destination and then "riding" in a cab, to an auditorium that took a giga ton of carbon foot-print to power all aspects of overhead for ... just to rail as an environmental activist about a fossil fuel driven society. 

We are walking talking and "breathing" ( puns always intended just because I find pleasure in being annoying...) balls of toxic hypocrisy.  Hypocrisy more than anything else is the lubrication of society.  

Like ...pounding away on a key board connected to the WWW ... to rave about the pitfalls of an impersonal social medias tearing at the fabric of culture.  

Most vegetarians ... they don't seem to be aware that they can be that way because they are couched in a societal machinery geared along by the majority - the enemy blood thirsty cheeseburger mongers.  That's a particularly "delicious" hypocrisy right there - that whole holier than thou bag of shame and shade about eating meat.  I guess if the majority cogs in the gear box decided to go vegan... maybe, but that wouldn't suffice the caloric needs of 7.5 billion mouths to feed - a purely agrarian species from orbit ... heh, probably in some super advancing counter-supplemental technology whence we are not there yet, that might be possible. It is an advancing environmental science problem but intuitively .. trying to turn the daily page of Earth's humanity on farming likely does not provide enough ... When it takes a 2 acres to raise a cow... that balloons to a requirement of arability land for growth that exceeds availability..  Animals concentrate nutrients into packets for redistribution - as coldly metallic as that sounds, it is a true.  And then when aspects of climate and climate change get in the way... and crop vitality is not as dependable as the nutrients packed in Tenderloin, it just doesn't map out as very realized. Out here in reality, the point is, vegetarian cannot do this alone.  Meat eaters can. It's called a gun or arrow, and camouflage. But most can't - hence the creation of Industrial abattoir scaling.  That form and structure provides the provisional access convenience that delivers unto the moral high road's plate, the calories they will need to ablate our value as human beings for not being as morally priceless as they are.. Isn't that special -

And on and so on..  You know ... despite all religions of the world and vicissitudes of history ... there is only one commandment that has prevailed for a million years:  hypocrisy.

Well, to be fair, base price is 10k more for the Volvo than the Mazda...

true and it's hard to justify that kind of premium, but I've had audi's and would sound like a hypocrite if I said it wasn't worth it.

The European Investment Bank is supposedly going to put digital bonds up for sale via the Ethereum blockchain. 

That’s big. It’s coming which is why I don’t want to miss the ride. I’m not claiming to be a crytpo expert but everything I read says to buy in. Play money can turn into some nice profit if it pans out and if it doesn’t, it was just play money I would have lost at the Casino anyway.

When you’re making $2k/wk on crypto lol, you should.

Does anyone know how the taxes work on coinbase? Let's say I invested 5k in Ethereum last year  and its worth 50k right now. If I withdraw 45k into my bank account through coinbase do they report it to the IRS? Or am I supposed to report it?

I belive they’ll send you a tax statement at year end which you’ll report as income. They also report it to the IRS. Long term capital gains (1yr plus) are taxed depending on your taxable income and filing status but they are taxed lower than short term gains.

Remember though what happened on #DogeDay aka April 20th... it cratered -- well went down like 5-10 cents.  Recovered a few weeks later... but it was no where near what it was "supposed to be"

Well making a few hundred is better than nothing lol

I'm sitting on 60K of DOGE... bought in around 0.10 or a little higher... so actually making some good money on it.  Am watching like a hawk though... I have set my bars as to when to get out

That is amazing. I don't own any as right on coinbase, it said it was created as a meme. Too risky for me.

I’ve got 300 doge coins at 0.30 so we’ll see if we can make a quick couple hundy next week and cash in. But, I think it does some longevity so  when it tanks again post Musky SNL hype, I’m gonna buy back in a little.

I was considering buying some but it isn't on Coinbase, so forget it

I really think Coinbase is missing out on not having DOGE listed as being able to buy/sell

48 hours since my 2nd Pfizer shot, sore arm, slight headache, a few chills. The worst was woke up at 2 am from a deep sleep Saturday night with a panic attack. Dizzy, shortness of breath. Lasted about 90 minutes. Was pretty scary, but no other real physical symptoms.
