I was so close to picking up some AMD Shares 3 years ago when they were under $4 a share, I knew they'd go up but was trying to buy a house so I didn't go for it. They are now floating around
$30 a share and will likely hit $40 by end of next year. XD

Ya it's always a kick in the pant, my co-worker sold his shares at $3 and pretty much broke even only to have them bounce up. He was not pleased, I had a good laugh though because hes the head of finance. lol

When I had the thought "I should probably look into this bitcoin thing people are all on about" they were just under $1 per bitcoin.
My finger hovered over the mouse button. I thought about buying a hundred of them, thought some more, and then went to ebay and bought a watch instead.
And that is how an ordinary guy narrowly misses becoming a deep millionaire over a Bulova.

The only cars worse than a Porsche (1 in 126,000) are Cadillac (1 in 103,000) and rounding out in last place, Fiat (1 in 77,000).


In first place is Toyota (1 in 11,655,000), followed by Honda, Mercedes, BMW, and Buick. They all are above the industry average. Nissan is in 6th place and Infiniti is in 10th place.
Porsche? Cadillac? But, but you must be mistaken. And Honda #2 ? We were led to believe they were crap! J.D.Power said...

That blower unit is located behind the glove box below where you replace the cabin air filter. That must be what the tech was referring to.


While reading the Ventilation System section, I came across the section regarding the replacement of the cabin air filter.

IN-CABIN MICROFILTER
Exploded View INFOID:0000000012793700
Refer to VTL-15, "Exploded View".
Removal and Installation INFOID:0000000012793701
REMOVAL
1. Remove grove box assembly. Refer to IP-13, "Removal and Installation".
2. Disengage fixing pawl, and then remove filter cover.


I apologize for stereotyping Japanese people who have difficulty enunciating "L"s but to see it in writing made me laugh.
Is this Plasmacutter removable so I can use it in the shop?

Considering the "natural grape seed polyphenol filter", maybe "grove box assembly" is correct since you need someplace to grow the needed grapevines.

Ok, I'm sure most of you people have heard this before;

Q: Why do the British drink warm beer?

A: Because they have Lucas refrigerators.

SolarCity's convertible notes are well underwater and need to be redeemed soon to the tune of $800 million and will need to be settled in cash in all likelihood.

Combining Tesla with SolarCity and issuing straight debt have sentenced this company to financial purgatory, and it is sad that Musk's financial decisions will be the undoing of his automotive genius.
And the model three sales are stumbling after an initial bloom. The styling is unremarkable. Pretty dull looking car.
