    I bought Honda Insight 2019 for uber

    Your decision to drive Uber is crazy. A driver needs to also be a mechanic so he can fix everything that breaks. Your warranty will run out in about a year or less if you are driving full time. 50K miles yearly if driving 40 hours a week. Things will start to break, you will have to pay...

    What to Strip from Car

    Keep the alloy wheels. A good used set can go for 1K depending on the car. Get steelies from a junk yard with junk tires.

    Quad low beams

    Those led bars are too bright. They are obnoxiously, painfully bright in the rear view. Its a large single point of light that can "burn" the retina. There is no way to regulate it, so people are going crazy in an arms race to not be blinded.

    TRIGGERED: Picked up an Asian Lawyer, told me his dad is a Doctor, drove him 25 miles, great chat.....NO TIP

    https://www.quora.com/Are-Asians-bad-tippers "As an Asian, I have big problem with tipping. If I am not the employer of the waiter/delivery guy/etc, why am I expected to pay them just because ‘their livelihood depend on it’? I go to the restaurant, I enjoy the food and service, I pay the bill...

    I think alot of ppl chasing wealth adopt @@@@@@@ personas. They become selfish, other ppl don't matter. If you always consider what is fair for the other guy, you are a nicer person but won't have as much wealth, unless you are really talented.

    A young girl biking in china was hit by a car. Hundreds of people passed by without doing anything. They just ignored her. They don't want to get involved. Is it cultural, or is it in the DNA?

    I was ready to pull the trigger on two cars...

    You know, someone else ALWAYS drove them first. Off the assembly line, into a holding lot, onto the transport, off the transport at the shipping yard. Onto the ship, off the ship, onto a regional transport, onto a local transport, off the transport into the dealers lot. Test driven many...

    I was ready to pull the trigger on two cars...

    I think I've got a line on another car. My search radius keeps expanding. The problem is, every week I'm without a car is 1K earnings lost.

    I was ready to pull the trigger on two cars...

    I don't think so. I need to change my strategy, either go really low-rent with intention to reupholster the car, or go higher. Even consdiering a short term rental, this might be the sign I need that rideshare doesn't want me. I've driven all over creation in a 100 mile radius. There was one...

    Candy experiment... strange result

    I used to buy peppermints from Sam's Club. Lots of people took them, some said thanks, some just started eating. The reason I stopped is because I would reach over the seat and start eating them myself when I got stressed. I liked the eating sound. Most people are crunchers. If they are not...

    Proposition

    Its BS. If he is buying a lambo, they will handle the driving 2 hours away. Probabaly just yanking chain. When you say yes, he will back out.

    All the quality women are taken or in jail!

    I've been shopping cars every day. Half of them were smoker's cars. I hate showing up at the dealership, get in the car and leave a minute later because the car reeks. Happened twice today. I may have to increase my budget and look for a stalwart Camry Hybrid. 1579217355 I thought about it...
