My wife’s cousin, she was spoiled as a child with wealthy parents and was never told no. She was raised believing she was a princess and now she is out of high school and weight has caught up with her in a big way. She is pushing 285 lbs but still thinks she is a princess and wears such revealing clothes. She won’t take hints, my wife has tried to invite her to work out with her but she thinks they are equal and she weighs considerably more than double.
Oh, no problem. I just turned 52. I co owned the first place with another person (generally not a good idea, btw, but it did work out for us,) back when I was early 30s. That particular one neither of us lived in, we just rented it out, then sold it 6 7 years later for a lot more. After that, I rented for another 5 years, as I had cheap rent. Then I bought a foreclosure for next to nothing in yet another city. Again, it was the situation at the time. It was so much cheaper than renting then that it made no sense to rent. Then I moved for a job in San Diego. The rent there was ridiculous, but prices were not that bad, so I bought again and owned two small condos in two different cities at the same time. Then my job moved, so I sold the San Diego condo for a good profit and am now living in the other one (Phoenix.) The market is really taking off here, so in about a year, I sell this place too, hopefully for close to 3X what I paid, and just go back to renting for a while. To answer your “how did I buy” question, the first place was a traditional mortgage with 20% down. The foreclosure was cash. The third place was again traditional mortgage with 20% down.
Toyota started building the first Celica in 1970, but the cars that will appeal to the young prospective buyer are models of the sixth (1993 1999) and seventh (1999 2006) generations. These are the newest Celicas, so they are the most common in the used car market and will have fewer miles on them.
Recently, as my boyfriend’s lease term ended this month, we went in to talk to the finance manager about our trade in process (salesperson no longer works there). He said he would try and work on it and to come back. He set us up with a salesperson and we got nowhere. Basically, they screwed us. Even though we negotiated the price of my car before figuring we needed to combine lease payments, I am now stuck with a remaining payment of $825/mo for my car alone as my boyfriend had to trade in his car. Somewhere in the mix of paperwork it was calculated to have my boyfriends value over the 36mo instead of 15. Instead, we should have had a much lower required monthly payment and paid over that amount for the difference of my boyfriends car during the 15mo so when he turned his in my payment would have been $400.
Sorry I rambled on there a bit. I really just confused about how we got to where we are now. How did we get to the point where no one is having these discussions? The damn boat is sinking and instead of plugging the hole and working on boat version 3.4, we arguing about the color of the fucking wood.
It’s a complete road/track animal: light weight (515kgs) front engined and rear wheel drive. Anyone who’s ever driven one will tell you how much fun these cars are! The kit also comes as a complete package, with engine and all! The R400 comes complete with a 2l Ford Duratec engine developing 210bhp, thanks to Cosworth hitting it with the power stick. That’s 420bhp/tonne. The bad part in all this is the 31,000 asking price, but to be honest with you, they are worth every penny. If you can’t afford this one, the classic kit starts at just 13,300 and that still has an engine, although only a 105bhp 1.4 Rover K series engine. Still, 200bhp/tonne is a great place to start with a Caterham.
“People who have a feel for a car get into an Alpina and instantly appreciate the steering reaction, the special suspension, the improved engine and so on but equally, people who don’t have that ‘feel’ tend to getin, drive for five miles and recognise that they are behind the wheel of something different,” says Andreas Bovensiepen, son of the founder and Alpina’s co owner and chief executive. “They feel that harmony.”
We really need to be able to have an adult able to ride in the back as we have a foreign exchange student living with us who needs to be able to come along for family outings and also have found from experience that having an adult in the back with baby to sooth, give a bottle/binky etc is essential to making longer car trips tolerable/comfortable (which we take often).
You in bfakn.club LA, in addition to the high monthly BMW lease payments, the $500 annual car registration fees, mandatory $2k/year full coverage car insurance, higher premium fuel usage at $5/gal, replacement runflat tires at $1500 a set, BMW $900 lease acquisition, $500 lease turn in fees, extra miles charges, and “outside the norm wear tear” costs at lease turn in will eat you alive.
With its four plants in Great Britain, BMW has now prepared itself for London departure from the EU on 29 March and has therefore brought annual maintenance forward from July to April. “This gives us scope for an orderly transition,” Wendt said. By stopping production in the weeks following the Brexit, BMW wants to reduce the risk of interruptions in the supply chain and restart as smoothly as possible afterwards.
Have you ever seen a Parking, Tow Away Zone sign? What do you think would happen if you parked your BMW there? Do you really think the property owner would bother to call BMW roadside assistance to tow your car away? Or would he just have Cletus drag it away like it does with every other car on the planet that he tows with the car in park and brakes on? Same thought experiment applies if somebody gets there BMW repo Same thought experiment applies if the police drag away an abandoned BMW. Same thought experiment applies if a BMW gets in an accident and is disabled/locked up. IOW, towing cars in park is a solved problem, and it happens all over the country hundreds, if not thousands, of times a day.
These things can be expected in an older vehicle. But come on, this car is barely five years old! And only three years old when I got it! And it’s German!! I now have new appreciation for every Ford product I ever owned or leased. I miss you Escort, Probe, Mercury Cougar, Mountaineer and yes, I even miss you, Taurus.
Focus STs are WAAAAY more fun than a 328i, and they sold brand new for less than 24k. Find a lightly used one for 15k and get way more practicality from it due to it being a hatch. Will also come with significantly lower insurance payments and exponentially less in maintenance costs. You can go less practical with a Mazda MX 5, those are fun as hell. I could go on, but I have a feeling that recommending other cars isn going to convince you.
It’s not just that it’s on one screen. The Hearthstone UI and animations are brilliant and under appreciated in terms of how they help with understandability. Consider the animation when a new card is drawn, for example. It comes out and at the apex of its arc, it slows down quite a bit. That combined with a strong preference for brief card text makes it easy to read as it’s drawn. Same when your opponent plays a card: the card flips over for and hangs above the board for a few seconds so you can read it.
I think that it also a bargain on the used market, because if you to to subreddits like /r/frugal everyone just blindly parrots “buy a Honda or Toyota.” Which means that on the used market, you artificially paying more because of the fierce competition. I happily buy a Fusion or a Mazda6. In fact, 3 years ago, I almost listened to the advice. I went and test drove the 1 size smaller vehicles. The Civic was bleh. The Corolla was double bleh. I strongly considered the Focus, but would have had to step back to a 2005 2010 to avoid the Focus PowerShift transmission. So I decided on a Mazda3 instead.
Anyway, having established the connection between BMW and VerifyCar, the second part of the image includes a tweet from a VeChain VP talking about how VeChain reps were showcasing VerifyCar to BMW. The tweet is from October, but regardless I think the point was to use the BMWBLOG text to corroborate what VeChain had been saying all along. In other words, they are using the first part of the image to lend credibility to the second.
OP, I am confused you think people are pretentious for driving a Lexus, BMW, or Mercedes. Basically they have a character flaw. I get that. Fine your opinion. But what I DONT get is how you are judging people by their material things but think that people that had those things are a snob. Why are YOU focusing on the material. THAT is so confusing to me.
I generally don support posturing bills for the sake of electioneering and just because it a bill doesn automatically make it more detailed than a proposed plan. Bernie can play the “I a Senator and I did Senator things” card when he the active Senator vs ex Senator. The stage this year is littered with active Senators this year, and arguably he the least productive and least effective of the bunch.
The new officer is trained to take command and expects immediate obedience from a citizen, and a citizen has no rights at all during the situation. That’s what we saw in the Boston neighborhood as cops were searching for the Marathon bomber. People were ordered out of their homes by yelling and shoving officers, with no regard at all for their rights as American citizens. That would not have happened a few decades ago. I don’t think it should be happening today.
Also picked a pretty convenient year to stop your chart, since it immediately fell back off starting in 89, down to a low of 17,000 in the early 90 look at that, the Mets were good and their attendance was higher. Now then fast fwd to the 90s and the Yankees dynasty starts. And obviously attended and fandom switches back.
In order to place another above us, we have to consider ourselves as beneath them. While you may respect them or think them worthy of such esteem, in actual fact you are setting your relationship with them up for failure. We hold people that we put on pedestals to a higher standard than we hold ourselves or others. We see them as more than and better than and while this may be true, it is only true in certain areas of their lives and specific arenas that they operate in. In other areas of their lives they have their shortcomings and when you have someone on a pedestal your tendency is to focus only on your own. This has a negative impact on your own sense of self worth and self esteem. You overlook your own attributes, skills and abilities in favour of the other. You cannot effectively work with the other when you are holding yourself back.
Not “only in South Africa”, even Gordon Brown is being hauled over the coals for spending too much government money on personal items. Seems all politicians are the same worldwide. We are kidding ourselves in voting for their election “promises”. Every politician of every creed only cares about lining their own pockets and then they incite us with their pretty speeches (never written by themselves)to turn against each other because of all the problems they have created. Booooo to all politicians and their greed. Good luck to every private citizen you’re on your own, mate!
Also the limits of the infant seat are nearly the same as most others on the market. It goes to 30 inches and 33lbs and provides a wedge fitted into the seat for use with newborns up to I believe 11lbs to ensure they have the proper recline and helps to keep their head from dropping and keeping their air way open.
6) Kirsten Gillibrand. Pretty much family issues female Booker. She has solid positions where she has them, but they also rather polarizing and she expressed them in a rather aggravating/aggressive interruptive way. She also fell flat on non family/female/health issues and suffers from being the 3rd women behind two much more well rounded women frontrunners syndrome. I say Sec. HHS or Sec. Labor for her.
To me, life is science. We are created from the most common atoms throughout existence and to think that we are somewhat special is fucking comical. Earth has been around for about 4.5 BILLION years and multi cell life only being around 600 MILLION years. I just some organism that will exist and die in a mere pinpoint on that timeline and my atoms will continue one just like they did the billions of years before I came into existence.
There also Nikon 70 200/2.8 AF S lenses of course, but, of course, they more money too. The 80 200/4 AF S VR is also very good I have that one at work and if you know you never need/want f/2.8, it is worth looking at. The old 80 200/2.8 AF S was very good but they all had motor issues and there were no parts to fix them anymore so unless something changed, I avoid them. There also the 80 200 AF D but that a manual focus lens on your D3500. If you need even more reach, there the 200 500/5.6 VR. I let someone else give you the rundown on the other 3rd party lenses and there all sorts of options if you want to spend a lot of money on lenses.
It the same thing as the guys that buy a high powered 30k Ducati race bike to putt around town on. Everyone is entitled to do as they wish and if it worth it to you then awesome, I personally just find the notion silly. I bought a 2016 BMW 3 series slightly used with 1,000 miles on it.
I’m not going to sit here and say that anyone who is at the top, or who has a fancy degree on their wall, is lazy. I won’t say that at all. I will say, though, that too often many of these guys simply put themselves on a pedestal that really has no business being beneath their feet. They all think, regardless of how they arrived where they are, that they have earned their position. They have earned their right to the big prize. They believe wholeheartedly that they deserve every bit of what they have, and that everyman deserves virtually nothing except to be thankful for what the top trickles down.
It absolutely is a luxury car. Perhaps not the base model with manual seats and no heated seats. A average selling price of 50k and premium features all the way around. How can you argue it isn doesn have ventilated seats, a heated steering wheel, the suspension isn what I expect in a luxury car, the car is noisier than a typical luxury car, the seats are not like that of a typical luxury style car, the interior finishes don scream luxury to me either. Don get me wrong the model 3 is absolutely a premium car. I just don feel it crossed the line into luxury. I also don feel that entry level BMWs, Audis, Acuras or Mercs fall into that category either. Premium, yes. Luxury, no. Luxury is getting into a super comfortable seat you melt into, feel like you are riding on a cloud, surrounded by luxurious finishes and a nice quite ride. The model 3 is a terrifically fun car to drive, but it isn luxury. It a terrific car, and a really fun one to drive, but I don know how anyone can call it luxury.
