That's why I am not going to buy a lambo. Although theoretically I already can buy one almost new 8K km 2019 huracan right now.  Grin I prefer a beach villa for this price.



Yeah in all seriousness I won’t be buying Lambo’s. Imagine how much a car like that depreciates in value over 2-3 years. Yes I know our bitcoin’s will be worth more (presumably) as time goes on but money is money. I don’t like losing money!

I’ll just take a standard Range Rover or something & a huge house Smiley

I think some of the luxury cars do not depreciate that much and even (I have heard) you can make an insta-winning deal buying second hand (almost new) from places like Dubai, etc.

Anyway, I would not consider buying a $200.000+ car unless my net worth would be a solid over 10-100+ times that amount. And even then... I probably would have much better things to do with my "surplus" money. I will never buy a boat/yatch ever either... I wouldn't like one even if "free"... Maybe I would buy a good Jet Ski though, but that's very cheap in comparison... and way more fun.

When I think about it, the main thing I want money for (beyond basic expenses, of course) is RE. There's no limit on how much "luxury" I would allow myself to "spend" on that if the money were not a restriction.

Anyway, first priority would be to be set for life on basic expenses and sleep well at night. Then we can start talking about luxury spending/purchases/investments.



You all are thinking way too small. This is what the properly outfitted gentleman bitcoinaire needs...



Bleh, been there, done that

Having money isn't going to be enough to keep a beast like Lambo. Maybe only for a while. This car (boats too) is a money sink. No matter how much money you have, unless you have a source of streaming income (preferably passive), you'll fail at keeping it. Everything you do or don't do with them costs you money. They stay unused, they cost money. You ride them, they ask even more money.

Let's say the car is $200k, do you think having $2m cash is going to be enough? I wouldn't feel comfortable tbh.

I don't see the point of having a luxury car anyway. I'd rather buy a cool looking used BMW/Mercedes, I mean the older ones that still look cool. (newer ones look like shit)

This car is only $16k in the US and it looks absolutely stunning. Performance? It is a damn V8.


https://www.ebay.com/itm/2008-Mercedes-Benz-SL-Class-V8/372942352153?hash=item56d518af19%3Ag%3AT-gAAOSwJBdeOulP&LH_BIN=1

Even that is probably more than I would ever want. I'd rather get an E series coupe. (again, older ones)

I don't think it is a good idea to spend your money on luxury stuff before you think a way to make passive income first. $1m is only good for a house, starting a business and a cheap car. $2m is not really much different than having $1m. Maybe a slightly bigger house, still not a too expensive car but a better business and more chances to fail and retry.

You get the idea.

I'd never spend my hard earned cash on these too luxury stuff unless I got them nearly for free. The money you get by hodling bitcoin is not free money. You are getting paid for the risk you took.

"Not only can the #coronavirus spread through direct human-human contact, but #2019nCoV can also reportedly spread through...defective sewage pipes.😷🤢🤮"

https://www.cnn.com/2020/02/12/asia/hong-kong-coronavirus-pipes-intl-hnk/index.html

"Microbiologist Yuen Kwok-yung said at a Tuesday press conference that an improperly sealed pipe could have resulted in a virus transmission, by carrying infected feces into the building's ventilation system and blowing it into people's bathrooms.
"As the pipeline that transfers feces is connected to the air pipe, it is very likely for the virus in the feces to be transmitted through the air fan into the toilet," Yuen said.

So how does this work?
Every toilet, sink, and floor drain has a U-shaped pipe, which prevents sewer gases from entering the home and allows waste water and odors to escape. To work properly the U-shaped pipe, also known as a U-trap, needs to hold water in its bend.
These pipes connect to what's called a soil pipe, also known as a discharge pipe, which washes the waste away from the toilet, sink or drain.
The soil pipe needs to have a vent pipe connected, which ensures the sewer gases and odors are carried away -- usually through a vent in the roof. The vent pipe also makes sure that pressure in the drain is equalized so waste water keeps flowing.
"If you imagine the pipe linking all the toilets in the same unit on different floors -- it's like a Christmas tree," said Hung.
During the SARS crisis, at Amoy Gardens the U pipes connecting to the floor drains were empty of water, according to a local investigation. That allowed virus-laden droplets coming down the pipes from other apartments to collect in the U-bend. Without the water to form a liquid plug, nothing stopped it from entering the bathroom."

This kinda explains everyone getting sick just chillen in their cruise ship cabin. Cruise ships are just floating piles of junk where everyone just eats buffets and poops all day.

Buy Bitcoin in uncertain times, and do not turn on the moisture fan in your bathroom.

I think that many people are putting their investments in Bitcoin, world events are pointing out that money should be protected, and bitcoin is leading as is gold.

Quote
Mr. Rager. “23%, 19%, 16%, 12% and a move up to the monthly resistance would be a 10% gain before a possible pullback. I’m watching monthly open at $10,761 as a major resistance much like it was at $13ks.”




It's nice to see BTC with that percentage of growth.

Yeah, that's why I said 10-100x the amount. 10x would be the bare minimum and that if it really was my dream or something... I mean, I understand you can "overspend" a little if something is important enough for you.

Totally agreed on your choice. In fact, this is what I have (not a picture of mine, but same colour and model):



Bought it used in 2011 or 2012 for around half the price new + extras. It does the job and looks good enough. I barely even use it because I am most of the time beyond the legal alcohol limit for driving, so I probably will keep it for a bunch of years more or until it breaks or I crash it beyond repair. Have spent almost *nothing* on maintenance. And it has a very low fuel intake (not an SL with V8 engine, just a modest 1800cc 200K SLK).

Upgrading my car is extremely low in my wish list even if I had the money.

Just got news from a friend in Shenzhen:
Almost all companies in and around Shenzhen are closed down by government until at least 2nd week of March!
No electronics going out from there in the next weeks.

I believe the impact for the economy worldwide will be huge. Moneys might want to get out of stocks into something different... (<- minor relevance to WO)

I see unrests coming to the western societies when I-thingies get short on supply and hipster fanbois will be forced to sit in Starbucks with their yesteryear I-gadget. (<- j/k - for the Chinese it's a f*cking hard time right now and I feel very sorry for them)

I don’t really care if forestry workers are as productive as they could be, so long as they keep cutting down the trees and I don’t need to be anywhere near them when they do it.  

It is absolutely imperative we don’t give them any other career options, otherwise they might become data scientists or entrepreneurs and compete with my business.  

Accordingly high tuition fees are a critical tool in making sure we don’t run out of forestry workers, fishermen, roughnecks and toilet cleaners.  People are generally pretty smart, so you can’t keep them down if we don’t have systemic barriers to social mobility.  

Some people devote themselves to a worthy vocation they feel they are suited to doing. They don't do the job for the money, they have a passion for it. Are you seriously trying to tell me this bloke would switch to a data scientist job or entrepreneur?



He's obviously dedicated to unblocking toilets for the rest of his life, and derives great pleasure from it.

I was searching for stuff to support my post above sayin how lambo is a bad idea, wrote a lot about it then...

omg wtf look what I found while I am at it on google > lambo forum, Shiet, which one of you is this?


https://www.lamborghini-talk.com/vbforum/f125/yearly-cost-owning-huracan-209650/


Just when I started talking of cars, I'll post 3 of my favorite cars:

Tier 1
(cheap tier)

These a little bit newer than the 2 below so actually the price is a bit higher than sl series despite of being a lower series model. I still like this one. To me, this is the only decent mercedes they made lately.

Tier 2
(mid tier)

These cheap too cuz they old... but still gud.


Tier 3
(monster tier)
Over a lambo anyday.


Not much to say. This thing shits on lambo on any day of the week. If I ever reach the lambo levels networth, this is my lambo of choice.
