    Also......

    It would seem that my payment plan I put in place five months ago had paid down my debt faster than expected, did a consolidation loan the other day to put it all in one payment....... now I have three grand left over........

    "Have an exciting career in signs and graphics" they said. Little did I know that would entail so much rolling around on the floors of all kinds of places you wouldn't even normally walk without shoes on. I spent my morning installing graphics on stair risers at a local college....6 sets of stairs, and my knees now feel like a Ukrainian whore on New Years Day.

    Dude - it hasn't been *really* cold in Montana for 25 years. :disgust1:

    :think: How the fuck does this happen? You had no idea what the debt balance was before you set up the "consolidation loan"? :confused:

    I think it has to do with all the Californians moving there. The hot headedness is warming it.
    Severity, worse. Not sure about their new models, but in 2011 IIRC, T got a patent for their fuel cells that would reduce the risk of fire spreading to other cells, but still failed to use it even in 2014. One kid got into an accident at over 100Mph after speed limiter was removed for some reason and the fire engulfed the car within seconds. There was another that caught fire after it got a flat tire, and recombusted at the tow lot. Anther randomly caught fire for an unknown reason. I believe they were all Model S's. :panic:

    Number of combust is likely on par.

    having a patent for something doesn't necessarily mean it can be manufactured at a commercial scale.

    not really. https://money.cnn.com/2018/05/17/news/companies/electric-car-fire-risk/index.html

    I said likely, never did the research. Haha.
    To be fair, there a lot more gas cars than Electric. And their research doesn't seem to pool all the other E-cars like they pooled all gas cars. Not a fair comparison. 300,000 Tesla's are less likely to get into an accident than gas cars since are say 300,000M gas cars. Same odds, but less chances.

    8" of snow so far, shoveled the driveway, plowed the hood, then had to shovel the driveway again.

    Looks like tomorrow will have to be snowshoeing not biking.

    I’m finally used to it. Very quirky car what with the spartan interior. Given my various hangups* it’s pretty damn well suited for me.

    * things I like:

    - good visibility
    - peace and quiet
    - zoom zoom-ability
    - AWD
    - 2” hitch
    - headroom for my oddly proportioned self
    - different but not ostentatious
    - green
    - clean dashboard layout
    - perception that it’s a good deal

    So, to the first part. True.... but even over the five years I have been here.....this winter is quite warm. I haven't had to truly shovel my driveway at all yet. I mean November last year I was in the back yard building snow ramps for the boy to sled on, right now i could probably still run the mower.


    For the second, about six months the ago, the wife and I sat down and make an attack plan to rid us of all the small debt, little 25 dollar a month stuff, doctor stuff, etc. We set them up in order, started with one at 400 a month till done and minimums on all the rest. Once one was done, move to the next. The stuff with minimums ended up payed down lower than I had expected. I didn't take the time to call every location for exact numbers.

    Its perfect though, everything is in one payment now, will be 600 towards consolidation a month, with a monthly minimum of 190.

    Feels nice to see the end for debt, even better that we are able to even do this.

    I personally think that this wind-chill reporting is nothing but a scam perpetuated by news stations trying to get people attracted to outrageous weather conditions. What was the real temperature forecast?

    Barre. Younger brother bought a house up this way recently so my siblings and I all came up for a visit.
