The Democrats are right in that anyone without a decent education and the ability to be highly agile in their role is fucked.

So everyone can whinge about the cost of education, but if your population isn’t educated, it’s not going to be competitive and it’s going to drag down your economy.

Yes, but how are young Americans going to compete for domestic jobs, when they have to get student loans for $50K-$100K @ 2-4% interest and when U.S. open borders allow immigrants (like H1B's) coming in by the tens of thousands who already speak English and got single or multiple degrees for next to nothing in their home country, all completely paid for?

Answer: They can't. They are saddled with a debt burden overhead that they have to service that the equivalent immigrant competing for the same job won't have, and they won't be able to accept a lesser salary in order to compete.

The low cost Chinese workers can’t speak English so they are useless for white collar outsourcing.  

You should do some more research. Expats who speak native English and Mandarin are being employed in China (metro cities like Hong Kong, Shenzhen, Shanghai, etc.) specifically to teach English to those educated Chinese students so they can get the outsourced white collar jobs from America.

Pretty amusing when back in January some people here thought the $3k-4k moves up and down every 2-3 days was "just a correction" and completely sustainable, lol.

but not haha amusing. I kind of always knew what the shot was going to be, but my inner bull took over the chinashop. Some said that I was a dreamer. But was I really the only one?

Are you sure that you are not just reframing history?  Funny how a bit of time passage can change perspectives... dragging you out from the cupboards in your dehydrated state, was not a pretty picture, as I recall, but maybe I am the only one?   Wink Cheesy

I was cool as can be. You must be thinking of someone else.

LN capacity reached 51 BTC up from 30 last week Cool

https://1ml.com/statistics

That is interesting Paashaas.

Seems like a kind of exponential increase in lightning network usage that is ongoing, and more than 52.4 BTC, as I type this response.

Perhaps increased confidence in the security of the lightning network, which is resulting in increasing avenues of utility for bitcoiners. 

Segwit abstainers are going to be one-step removed from such added Bitcoin utility, yet in any event all bitcoin hodlers are likely to be advantaged by such increases in BTC capacity.

There are some scenarios where it makes sense to borrow for depreciating stuff as well - it becomes a sort of a rental then. A car is one example. There is no way I'd spend $25k of my own money and I really don't wanna drive a $5k clunker because my time has value too. So I "rent" it for $200 a month or so. Will not build any equity in it but I don't care, it's not an investment.

Blah. Used car: Invest in a set of tools and the ability to read and you can get that 25k car for a few K tops. My newest car is a 2002, 2001, 95,87,86,68. Why in the name of heaven would I want a new car?

my wrenching days are far behind me. brakes fluids filters tuneups are about all i wish to do now. my time is worth more than what it would take to do any repairs and maintenance beyond that.

and in the sticks dependability is all. so i buy new and get 100,000 mile "everything included" warranties. once it hits that (say 5-6 years) the new vehicles have so many new features and tech its worth buying new again. repeat as needed.

i still do stuff on an old jeep thats my wheeling mobile, but thats pretty easy to work on. and its a hobby mobile, not a daily driver thats absolutely needs to get me from point a to point b when i need it.

I can relate to economizing and frugality up to a certain point, but at some point, you have to begin to treat yourself.

Yeah, while you are building your nest egg and your various financial assets, you might want to be extremely focused on utility and lack of depreciation; however, at some point, there is value in treating yourself and even showing status that comes with new products that depreciate - a car being a decent example of such.

Well, I did treat myself to a bit of a splurge, a 32 valve 5.0L Porsche 928S, bad assed little car that's pretty unique on the road. A new Toyota or even Tesla just doesn't add much in the wow factor for me. A Lambo has been on the mental table, but I'm not sure if I can fit in one for a longer drive. Maybe if bitcoin tops 25k I'll pick one up just for giggles or something. But even then I would prefer a Diabalo as opposed to something new (The LP500S is amazing looking but a total bitch to drive. I tried it, too much work by far).

Guess I'm just not at the showing status portion of my life yet. But I can understand the lack of wanting to wrench, I'm just pointing out to my kids that it's a lot cheaper to fix something themselves and spend money on hookers and blow than have a new car and no H+B. :-)

well if my kid ever asks me whether to spend money on a new car or a clunker, hookers and blow,
I would indubitably encourage the former...but that's just me.

Tell us more Jojo !

I'm not a huge expert.

I know it's a custom casting smallblock bored out to about 450CI.

It ran 10.37 last season naturally aspirated.  The blower is new and untested under load.  He expects to run into compliance issues with tech when he starts running in the 9s.

69, all steel, all glass.  Sexy fucking ride
.

Thats a butt ton of work! Got a buddy with a 67 RS and Had a buddy with a 69 396SS 12 bolt main(pulled wheelies|| that was the shit) but to get into the 9's with that sexy beast is a act of love. Smiley

And well worth it IMO! Cheesy
btw there is a 69 (?)Camaro that does the 9's called the beast.

FUCK! I'm wrong it's 8 Second @ 172MPH !!!!!




A couple of decades ago, I used to have a '68 Chevy 3/4 ton truck with 70k miles. Rust-free, straight and solid. It had a crappy stock 307 V8. That was a bad engine for Chevrolet, it burnt a quart of oil in 500 miles!

I replaced it with a fresh '67 327 with 2.02 intake valves. Solid lifters, doublehump heads, Carter 4bbl, and dome pistons. Aluminum Edelbrock Torker II intake. I had to have the starter rebuilt with more windings for the high compression. It was licensed, and had open headers, it was hot shit on the farm. At the time.

It was geared too low to go fast, but it got there very, very quickly. It had the snap/crackle/pop/rumpity rump idle. The other farmers thought I was weird. Some of the young ones saluted me, for hearing it start a 1/4 mile away, on a cold winter morning.

This was a daily driver for 11 years, not just a weekend fun thing.

That paragraph is so fucking butch my testosterone levels tripled just reading it.

i had a 74 vega notchback.
burnt more oil than petrol.
sounded and ran like a flatulent tin can.
then i crashed it.
probably for the better.

motorhead I'm not...
I used to tell people my 72 Gran Torino had Oil induction. Lol

They were impressed until I explained what that really meant. Smiley

BTW I've got a 350 sitting in my addition right now on the engine stand, been too lazy to find it a home. Too tired after the XJS rusted out while I was laid up. Smiley


Yes.  At the time of Roger's lock-up for the "fireworks", he was 22 years old and an unknown, but just from his description, he did not seem to experience any kind of real torture, and overall he may have received a bit on the kit glove treatment side.  

If Roger were locked up now, he could have some bad experiences based on his exponentially increased notoriety - but since he is rich, too, currently, rich people do NOT tend to get tortured when they go to jail, unless there are really extreme and revolutionary things going on in the society.  By the way, I would not wish torture on anyone, even if they have some despicable personality traits, but there are concepts of fairness/justice that assert that letting the punishment fit the crime would be the right thing to do in figuring out punishment(s).

Punishment should fit the crime but what should the punishment be when the crime is fabricated and the real crime is bucking the system and how do you prove that?

32 valve 5.0L Porsche 928S, bad assed little car that's pretty unique on the road.

I remember these from years back but the all aluminium engine Ive not heard of before.  Is that an asset for the older car, I've no idea how people decide whats going to be popular.  On another forum I know someone got a F40 in the last market crash, its price appreciation since equals its acceleration.   If it was me I'd want to buy a De Tomaso  apparently is easy to work on Smiley

The funny thing there is a classic cars are often tax free in terms of an asset appreciation or capital gains tax.   Im not sure about fine art and other things, there might be a few assets which are actually quite clever to hold for their long term value or at least ability to hold value over time.    If you happen to also love the car or whatever asset then its a bonus.   This is easily arguable in terms of diversification, so long as you believe the price is not inflated wrongly for some reason its personal judgement on that one.

Quote
Bankers in Germany’s automotive heartland have a recommendation for investors seeking alternatives to low interest rates: vintage cars from their region.

“For customers with more than 1 million euros in liquid assets, a classic car can be an attractive addition to their portfolio in terms of yield and value stability,” Jens Berner, vintage car expert at Suedwestbank AG’s asset management unit, said in an interview. “After the financial crisis, requests for alternative investments such as art, wine or classic cars had risen sharply.”

Also I post because I saw very similar article just recently - https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-07-09/vintage-porsches-683-gain-fuels-returns-in-carmakers-homeland


Also would help to know a good mechanic.   In terms of the Lambo meme, generally people refer to new cars which often is a heavily depreciating asset.   Not always it depends on production vs demand but usually not a good idea, imo kinda pointless unless you also have the race track


For all you TA lovers... if you want to read the biggest crock of horseshit TA and laugh, well here ya go :

Judging by a ratio could be of some use.   I think they are arguing the total market cap is overvalued if considering an average ratio vs transaction value done since 2010

Storage and upkeep are massive in comparison to say "art" which hangs on the wall and doesn't need upkeep until you get into the massive digits. Investing in classic cars is more of an act of love than investment.
