I have a nearly 20 year old vehicle that I wouldn't trade for anything. What's wrong with 20 year old vehicles? It's my daily drive to work and elsewhere - I use my wife's newer (brand new, hate, she now understands why I advised 100% against the course of action she took) POS when it is convenient or quick trip or family trip (it has better fuel economy and space). My fuel economy is not awful, about 28 mpg, and I do most of the basic work on it myself (changing brake pads, belts, terminals etc) to keep the rock bottom cost even lower.  This has featured the added benefit of the boon of some mechanical knowledge where none existed before. I at least investigate any issues myself prior to ever considering thieving mechanics. It has been paid off since I bought it (at a cool 120k miles) for five thousand dollars. It has some wear (now, and still not bad, was mostly pristine when purchased from singular owner) and certainly doesn't have the bells and whistles of newer vehicles, but I am absolutely fine with that. I just crossed a quarter million miles a few months ago. I keep the oil changed regularly and it scarcely needs other maintenance too often. My battery even lasted almost 5 years, granted that has nothing to do with the particular vehicle per se. It is a manual transmission and primarily a joy for me to ride.  I would be glad to have my daughter learn to drive this vehicle in some years if she is willing - and I certainly plan to teach her how to operate a manual transmission at the least.

I'm happy letting others get into cars they can't afford. I agree that new vehicles are not the way. When I do finally replace my favored child, it will be with a used vehicle that has already reached maximum depreciation and that will be regardless of how wealthy I am, as that is one method I will deploy to stay wealthy/maintain wealth (when I get there!).

I would never consider, much less purchase, a Tesla of any kind.

My last 3 Daily drivers from present back to 97.







I don't change unless I have to and I think I'll go back an older Vandom Plas that I may have to rebuild when I decide to change again. I choose comfort and style no matter what year.

I honestly believed that I understood the concept of self-expression but I cannot rationalize tattooing.  I realize it is my failing that I don't understand tattoo so I make light with the hope that one day I might understand.

Excellent poem, is that your own writing?  I share your sentiment; I always figured if I got a tattoo at age 65 I'd regret it by age 66.   Although, I am craving sushi all of the sudden.

 No, it's an adaptation of a Theodor Seuss Geisel poem for children.  I only added a couple of stanzas.

Got an offer to sell this account for 657 BTC and I just couldn’t refuse, not in this bear market. The person seems to be coming after big accounts. I’m the 5th to sell up now. Handing over the keys to new owner next week and will announce fresh handle 👍
 Huh

If anyone is interested, I'll sell my BTCtalk account for a pastrami on rye.

Hmm. Does it have to include your WO workload?

Funny thing here is, nobody in the bitcoin community believed this freak for a second

Yet you name Gavin, Roger, and Jihan... all three being central figures in the Bitcoin story, from long before the split.

Quote
Gavin, Roger, Wu... And those people are retards. They were retards back in the day in 2015, 2014, 2011... and they are still retards.

Must hurt - the fact that at least two -- and maybe all -- of these three retards could each buy you a thousand times over, hunh? (subtext: who's the retard?)

Retirement on crypto (BTC and altcoins of many flavors) has its issues. As the price of BTC and/or your altcoins drop, you get depressed and spend your crypto hash like a drunken sailor.

On the other hand, the price of your crypto of any flavor goes up and you are happy and also spend money like a drunken sailor

I might suggest that your experience is unique to yourself.

Yeah... thing is, the full-size van form factor just works for me. If someone made a van with interior trim up to luxury car standards, this woulda been a done deal already. Alas, no. So my decision is to abandon the form factor I desire and get a pickup, or settle for the comparatively downmarket experience of a van. Either seems a compromise, which makes me need to consider other platforms*. Which leads to indecision. ::sigh::

*i.e., maybe Tesla X?

Oh well, the wife is the car guy in this family, anyhoo.

I don't mean to beat a dead horse, but I cannot resist to say that I am not going to let you get away with this delegation to the wife thingie...

You misunderstand me. The wife has a Corvette and a Camaro. I like my van better.

Quote
By the way, the Tesla X is a kind of SUV that differs from vans, and there are quite a few other models of cars on the market that are similar to the TeslaX - excepting that the electric nature of the TeslaX is surely an interesting experiment that is still ahead of its electrical charging infrastructure support.

Agreed. The X would be a deviation to a more conventional carlike platform, in that the interior is quite sedan-y. Only in the running if deviation from van is called for.

Quote
Anyhow, I was thinking that there are some features of 20 year old vans that are not quite present in variations of modern SUVs, which would include your mentioning of the TeslaX as a possible consideration point, including that actual ... [note deleted text - ed] vans could have the potential to have removability of seats and just the possible stand up space and roominess and customizability that some of the modern SUVs would not have - maybe even putting a bed in there or some other living room or even transportation space conveniences.

Now you're catching on. As but one example, in addition to a daily driver, it is my hunting lodge.

Quote
My question here remains what is it about your particular 20-year old van that you like, besides the mere inconvenience of changing vehicles?

Bingo. If I ever figure out that the next vehicle will be a van, I'd get a new one post-haste. Probably a Quigley. But other matters have my attention ATM.

.....  NOT good for my sense of manliness.   Cry Cry

well you could always just  cash out a couple of BTC or so and go buy yourself a nice new shiny manly looking pick-up truck. Problem solved. (as long as you don't have a tiny penis)

My claim is that I have an average-sized penis.

My balls, OTOH, are made of steel.

I enjoy the civil war in camp bCash, the mud fight is very amusing.

I find it quite amusing as well. Even though a significant portion of my wealth hangs in the balance. Gallows humor?

Ah, well. It will be settled in the fashion of Bitcoin:
"They vote with their CPU proof-of-worker, expressing their acceptance of valid blocks by working on extending them and rejecting invalid blocks by refusing to work on them. Any needed rules and incentives can be enforced with this consensus mechanism."
