    The road to wealth is simple: Drive a crappy car

    Holy crap, that 2008 just got destroyed! I drive a 2010 Acura TL that I paid cash for in 2013 or 2014, for less than half of what it cost new. I have a baby girl who drives around with me all the time. I knew my car had a good safety rating, but I thought I would look up the videos anyways for...

    OFF-TOPIC The future of movie theaters?

    I agree with what MJ wrote. All the chains where I live just replaced their old shitty chairs with these huge electronic reclining lazy-boy style chairs. They are great. The theater is also 100% seat booking, so you always know where you are going to sit before hand. I used to get stressed...

    Bitcoin / Cryptocurrency Discussion (And Predictions)

    Does anyone here have any experience with the new Ledger Nano X? It looks to solve a lot of the issues that the Nano S has, but I am not 100% on sure about using bluetooth rather than a wired connection.

    Bitcoin / Cryptocurrency Discussion (And Predictions)

    Well there is a recent explosion in BTC and ETH lately. Any thoughts from the big guys who understand this a bit better? I know a few members were pretty positive on a few alts, such as Icon, I see that one is not doing so great in relation to the larger players, any thoughts? I have also been...

    RANT Canadian health care: Time to face reality

    Throwing more money at a situation that won't improve it? But that is the governments job is it not? They don't know how to produce, only how to spend.

    Cyrptocurrency news: Facebook launches Libra

    That is exactly what they said they would do. They will give you fractions of coins for clicking ads and stuff while on the platform. So this means they can charge advertisers 50 cents a click, and payout 5 cents a click, and make mad cash the whole time. Of course we all have a year to see how...

    Cyrptocurrency news: Facebook launches Libra

    You guys are looking at this from the perspective of having an education and somewhat understanding tech. What about the billions of the world who don't give a shit about anything other than TV reruns, YouTube stars, Instagram and Facebook? They might just see an easy way to send money and buy...

    Why LinkedIn is King in B2B Lead Generation

    I heavily use LinkedIn to find out who people are. I talk to lots of people in industry who drop a name, and then I look them up on LinkedIn to see who they are. Or if I am part of a big email chain I can see who everyone is. It is also great to know what city they work out of, how long they...

    OFF-TOPIC Game of Thrones Season 8 Thread (SPOILERS)

    LOL at making John pet his wolf at the end. Everyone on the internet freaked out when he didn't give him more than a nod goodbye on episode 4 or whatever it was. This episode was an 80 minutes snooze fest of trying to wrap everything up nice and tidy and make everyone happy. As some one else...

    OFF-TOPIC Buzzfeed: Tony Robbins accused of sexual misconduct

    The biggest take away for me is that Buzzfeed believes that it is a news organization. I thought it was just some celebrity gossip rag, do people actually think it is news? If buzzfeed ever shows up on my phone newsfeed I just block it.

    Damn you crypto

    You are just gambling. And when the crypto market drops again are you going to be thanking your lucky stars that had you gotten out? Or will you buy at the top and then sell at the bottom and be saying the same thing over again?

    OFF-TOPIC Game of Thrones Season 8 Thread (SPOILERS)

    Well episode 5 was a steaming pile of garbage. How the hell did Jaime manage to escape the tent as a prisoner? Sure he was no longer locked up, but he was heavily guarded as well. WTF? Also, wouldn't Dany know right away that he did manage to escape, and therefore execute Tyrion? The show has...

    RANT Florida Teachers Can What?

    Sounds like an education problem, no? I will throw this up here again, the 4 rules of gun safety. Is it impossible to shoot yourself while cleaning your gun if you follow these. Your children will also understand the impact they can have with firearms if they know and internalize these rules...

    RANT Florida Teachers Can What?

    100% agree!! The people who are the most vocal are the most uneducated on that particular subject. I have worked my entire adult life in the oil industry, and the amount of pure BS that people talk on that subject is just staggering. Pipelines, The "tar" sands, fracking... the less people know...

    RANT Florida Teachers Can What?

    @Roli, the police are some of the poorest shooters I have ever met. Nearly every single police officer that I have come across at the range was an arrogant, cocky SOB who could hardly handle his firearm. And those were the ones who actually go to the range. It frightens me deeply to know that...

    NOTABLE! What book are you reading? Right now. Post up!

    Good Profit by Charles Koch This was one of the most profound books that I have ever read. I am throwing it in the top books that I plan to read multiple times. It really put into words a lot of things that I feel about business but never knew how to express. This is an absolute must read for...

    RANT Florida Teachers Can What?

    In Canada it is illegal to protect yourself with a firearm, maybe even with any "weapon". We have laws in this country to ensure that criminals are better off than citizens when it comes to property rights and defending yourself. There is a man in Ontario who wrestled a gun from someone...

    OFF-TOPIC Game of Thrones Season 8 Thread (SPOILERS)

    I enjoyed watching episode 4, but the more I think about it the more I hated it. Really, the flying dragon couldn't see a fleet of ships on the ocean? Are they blind? And how the hell did they manage to snipe a flying dragon from a ship moving on waves with such deadly accuracy? That is just...

    OFF-TOPIC Game of Thrones Season 8 Thread (SPOILERS)

    You are completely right. Episode 8 was so terrible I had honestly forgotten about that Snoke BS. This was similar. It just screams to me of lazy writing.

    OFF-TOPIC Game of Thrones Season 8 Thread (SPOILERS)

    Just watched Episode 3. It was a hot mess. A hot dark mess. The first 3/4 of the episode you could not even tell what was going on. A few minutes of the chaos would have been good for cinematic effect, but 40 min was a garbage heap. I disagree about the Last Jedi though. She has been training...
