I live in a densely populated urban center, but occasionally drive some distances to ... beaches, for example, on wide open highways (where there are lots of traffic cameras, so what's the point unless you don't mind paying the speeding fine.)

The only point of having a Lambo is part of the "peacocking" process where you are displaying your prowess (wealth) to the opposite sex and to others in the hopes of achieving higher social standing and thus being able to obtain a better mate and ensure the survival and prosperity of your offspring.

Totally legit human desire.

Not all that necessary though. When I had my Porsche I found it quite futile when trying to pick up women. I'd be in the bar, my Porsche sitting outside in the parking lot...no assistance to my game. Now I drive a 2005 Hyundai but have the hottest girlfriend I've ever had.

 Well, if you're doing 50km/h over the posted speed limit where I live, you will be charged with stunt driving (speed limit is 100k on 400 series highways) which means an automatic 1 week suspension of your licence, 6 demerit points, your car gets impounded for a week at your expense and there is a fine of 2 to 10 thousand dollars.  If you manage to get to 15 demerit points, you get your licence suspended for 30 days.

NB. I couldn't afford the insurance and maintenance on a Lamborghini anyway.


 

You know exactly where I'm coming from.
The local authorities can be.. . difficult.

Oh, is that where you live? G licence? That's a problem as I to, have no influence on the local authorities there. Where I come from (and I'm assuming where you once were, or if not, maybe where your parents or grandparents came from), ... being in any government position has it's fringe benefits. I'm speeding and counter flowing sometimes, and no tickets. Spotless driving record. Most of time I'm "law abiding" and just "being good."

I did get a ticket for a broken tail light, and the guy knew who or what I was; much respect to him for doing his job. I paid the fine and got my license back.

One day, when I'm there, I want to join the OPP (Ontario Provincial Police) or TPS (Toronto Police Service), but will most probably prefer to be CF (Canadian Forces), cuz I like the CADPAT uniform look.

I can't blame you. Just do three years of almost nothing and you're on the sunshine list (the government 100k annual salary list) it seems. I wouldn't call it almost nothing, but ... it does take some guts to do whatever it is they have to do.

I have other reasons for joining ... but those might not be applicable in a few years, or a few months from now, depends.

Well, Jimbo seems to like it alright here. But it's a tough town to bustle in. International competition from every corner of the world is squeezing out a whole generation of young go-getters.

That sounds like a pretty tough place. Technically I need a Lambo like I need a hole in my head: I have a 10 mile commute to work and either the Porsche or the Prius can do it quite easily. It's just that I have more of a smile on my face with the Porsche.

If my commute was an hour to drive 20 miles with bumper to bumper I'd drive the crap box all the time. Or have a driver and said Maybach.

I now have this image in my head of a desert night, sky all black and starry and a big bonfire surrounded by a ring of Lambos. It's the meeting of the Bitcoin tribe, they have come to pay homage to the Bitcoin God....

Ok, time for bed.

Some guy has been busting out car windows on my street three times a week for a year. I'd have to move to a nicer neighbourhood. A Porsche would be an inconvenience.

While I was in high school, I got a classmate who basically drove a Testarossa to school everyday.  One time, he got a suspension from school for a week, and was forced by his parents to attend a public school for a few days.  Not surprisingly, his Testarossa got smashed up and his face punched in on the first day.  

There is also this dad who would show up occasionally in his Lotus Esprit to pick up his daughter from school.  One time he showed up with a girl who looked and dressed younger than his daughter.  
"Hey, I didn't know that you had a sister?"
"NO, that's my new mom."
"Oh..."

Driving a classy antique and people might give you a thumbs up and chitchat with you.  Driving a Countach to school or to work and people might give you the finger and gossip behind your back.  Might as well get a chauffeur who can double as bodyguard, which I do see quite a few people do in real life.

Maybe we should change the poll to "how many Trabis are you gonna buy".

I am an investor. I am interested in block size. Ergo, claim is demonstrated as false.

Ok. I'll rephrase that in a manner that even you can identify with.

"Not one investor is remotely interested in blocksize, capacity or any other monetary vehicular niceties if it means the loss of 90% of the value of their holdings". (As it does when a suffix is added to the word "Bitcoin").

In other words, the market is arbitrating between stores of value and technologically versatile investments. Bitcoin is the latter so in that respect the one with the least tampering will be considered to have the maximum store of value. It doesn't need to support a gazillion transactions per second, it only needs to be more valuable than it was last year and support 7 transactions per second.

For performance and functionality, the market looks to either Visa or alts.
