    OLympics.....Just vaccinate all the athletes

    I got a chuckle over 1998 winter that couldn't be bothered with a budget. It would be a worthless accounting exercise. I can see the meeting play out... "Hey Frank, how much you think this Olympic thingie is going to cost?" "I don't know Marge... could be expensive... but think of the jobs and international prestige!" "Ok... lets do it." "Is it lunchtime? Why yes it is! Lets break for the afternoon." "Want to go skiing?" "No, skiing is for those elitist a-holes with too much money... And cold, wet with too much gear" "Right, nobody really likes doing that, lets go sailing then, ok?" "Sure!"

    Deal with leaky deck fittings now, or the boat will be forever damp inside.

    Cars you dream about owning someday

    Interesting additional tidbit from Bellingham WA. There is a local boat builder who also built a high mileage car back in the day (like early 80's). Gets 90+ MPG if I remember. He still takes it out periodically. Looks like a pretty normal car, albeit low and very aero. But a car shape none-the-less. (not some impractical aircraft shape)

    An explicit image was the final message in a string of 62 consecutive unanswered texts. ___________________________________ But did she sign up for any extended warranty?

    I wonder how often it gets driven... Probably best not to let Ferris Bueller near it. Is this an investment? Money parking spot to hedge against inflation? Just ego? Would you simply warm up the engine from a poly tank once a quarter and change the oil annually?

    I’m sensing a bias here. Ply again.

    Hmmm... looked to me that there was one coastie behind the bar. Perhaps an all points bulletin was issued and all their buddies came by to "inspect the flare dates"

    BMW sure seems to be a wee bit masochistic for those out of warranty. But then, so are boats. BMW has an impressive trajectory from luxury motoring to broken down as some high-schoolers first whip. In a few tragic short years. Though my personal observation is that neither group can operate a turn signal, and everyone else on the road is the enemy. Enjoy it @billy backstay, no way I could manage the operating costs and stay sane.

    Can't Trust Anyone

    I don't suppose putting a banana sticker over the spedo is considered acceptable on a nicer leased car.
