This is like standing in line at the DMV.


In Topic: I quit smoking

26 June 2017 - 09:50 AM

Here is how I quit.

 

Buy yourself some BlackJack gum or black licorice sticks.  Chew it up before you smoke.  Dont drink anything.

Then light up a smoke.  After you quit gagging and trying to throw up, you will notice the foulest taste in your mouth you ever had.

Keep doing that for about a week.  Then try to light up a smoke without the licorice.  You will notice your stomach rolls over before

you inhale.  That's the beginning.  Your brain will not accept that cigarette anymore as a good thing.  I have been done with cigs

since 1992, when I did this.  Even the smell of cig smoke produces a sickening in my stomach.

 

Best of luck buddy.


In Topic: Favorite Star Wars Character?

Too bad they couldn't have made the Millennium Falcon look more like a '56 Chevy.  Han would look good in a '56 Chevy.

 

The character that I liked best out of all of the 7 movies:  Boba Fett


In Topic: BMW or Volvo ?

Here is how I decide.  Go to a blue book used car value website.  Look up the same car (or very similar) from 2012 for each vehicle.  Figure out the cash value price for each car.

Let's say the 2012 Volvo was $50,000 new.  The BMW was $60,000 new.  Now look up the actual cash value of what each of those cars are worth now. 

Figure out the loss on each car.  Let's say the Volvo is worth $25,000  and the BMW is worth $38,000.  Then that shows you which car to buy.  The BMW holds it's resale better,

and therefore you don't lose as much money.

 

If it were me,  I would save $20,000 right now and buy a Subaru.  Subaru and Volvo share the complete drive train system.  They are the best cars for AWD.  Subaru holds it's

resale better than either of the other 2 cars.

 

This is why bankers and money investors all buy Mercedes-Benz.  A 5 year old MB is still worth 70% of it's full retail.

No, but a good friend of mine, showed up at my door one night....naked.  His feet were so bloody, I couldn't let him inside.

So I bandaged his feet and put a robe on him and took him to his sister's house.  God was she angry.
