better idea

summer home in the woods, because you aren't rich until you have a fucking summer home

LOL, I just sold the summer home. That's where the money is coming from for this. Couldn't handle 2 money pits. I do need to look into the maintenance costs for the boat.

TBH, if you have a ton of money right now, the best thing would be to invest it.  If it's a very sizable lump sum, you can put that in interest-earning accounts and, depending on how much money you have, you can earn anywhere from 7%-25%.  Not sure about the interest-gaining cycle, as some are yearly, bi-yearly, quarterly, etc., but I imagine you have at least 100k, and I'm sure you could get a 10% gaining account on that if you invest.  10% on 100k will get you $10,000 in a single year.

I'm having fun with math today apparently.  ;p  Just figured how long it would take to make 100k @ 10% double; turns out it's ~7.27 years, or 7 years, 3 months and a week.  Hey, I remembered something in math.  rofl

Anyway, just something to consider.   :afro:

Your being too sensible. I am curious though. What would you suggest I invest in that's safe, that will get you 10%. Retirement is only a few years away, so can't afford to loose it in the stock market.

I wish I lived near y'all so you could pay me to fix your boat issues. If this was in "The Man Thread" I may have added a bit more. ;)

hehehe feel free to move this to "The Man Thread". I AM leaning towards the boat. After the Atlantic City Boat Show on 9/28 I will need to discuss boats. Thinking about something around 29ft with a head, can pull 2 skiers and sleeps 1 man 3 women. :-)

Why can't you have both?  I don't know what kinda budget you're working with or what kinda price line you've come to, but there are all KINDS of boats listed on craigslist for not a whole lot at all and with winter approaching, boat prices will be plummeting.  Then again, I do live only 10 mins away from Lake St. Clair so everyone and their mom has a boat in my area so they are easy to find for steals.  Get yourself a decent boat then go buy your hotroad and put more money towards the car than the boat imo.  Problem solved  :ban:

I'm 30 minutes from a lake and 1hr from the ocean. New boat prices are outrageous. The boat pictured is close to $200,000 new. That's nuts. If I go the boat route, will probably get something a few years old. There is a big boat show in Atlantic City the end of this month. gonna check that out.

Like my old mans always said, a boat is nothing but a hole in the water that you continuously pour money into. Maybe not if it's some little john boat with a trolling motor that even the crappiest 4banger truck can pull around on a little rickety trailer. But anything else, yeah, a headache waiting to happen.

And cars aren't nearly as fun as motorcycles.

The new Harleys are out now and they have tons to choose from to satisfy most anyone unless you want some kinda crotch rocket. But those are for fags anyway.

I never had a motorcycle. Always wanted a Harley. Just afraid I would kill my self on one. Lots of deer in my area. And the main thing I would do on one is go bar hopping. :-)

Current favorite drink is a dirty (slightly filthy) Ketel (or Goose) martini up with 3 blue cheese stuffed olives. Just ordered an olive stuffer, pitter and "Dirty Sue's Premium Olive Juice" from Amazon to make my own.  :heart:   :bananaw00t:

LandJaeger? What the fuck is that? and where do i get some, that shit looks good

The ones on the left are the best. German butchers usually have them. They were the favorite snack for the German storm troopers in WW2. Someone told me they saw them at a Wegmans.

Landjaeger and beer. Nothing else comes close.  :beer:  Maybe landjaeger and scotch. Those Canadian Blue Whales did look good. Seems they only have them in Canada. There will be 600 blue whales crossing the border shortly. Hope their as good as they look.

Poor server admin performance? Based on what? The fact that he doesn't tolerate wise asses on "HIS" server.

Don't bother going to that server unless you want to have to try and adhere to some arbitrary standard of playing correctly. Run up the frags too fast, or use rail gun too much and you will basically be asked to leave.

I've never been a "wise ass" on his server. It was made clear that I wasn't welcome because I was railing (gasp) and playing aggressive (gasp). The server is bipolar though, because at times the play was aggressive, when Ex wanted it that way. Then other times he'll chide you for railing too much and fragging too fast, especially if one of his internet wives complains about it. I consider that extremely "Poor server admin performance" by making people try and "adhere to some arbitrary standard of playing correctly".

That server is meant for chatting and quake/xatrix is an afterthought...

And GoGoGadget...not sure why you have any opinion on the matter...at least Ex pays for a legit server to run his favorite mod...your sloppy, pathetic, non-server will never get a fraction of the traffic that his does...and he can actually get people to play there...
Yep, I hear ya. Exti can be a little over protective of his family. But again, that's why he pays for his own server. I take it you are a good railer. I think it's understandable, that if you were on your server with a group of friends that aren't that good and someone joins and starts annihilated everyone, you may do the same thing. I myself, don't mind getting annihilated. Come see me play Optica some time. 30 to 1. AND I think he let's me get the 1. And I still go back for more.  :notworthy: Next time you feel like playing on FOX, maybe join and ask "are we playing seriously or just goofing around?". Maybe Exti should put a comment in the server description "non-serious play 80%, serious play 20%". hehehehe
 
Hey, who is gogogadget? I guess his post was deleted. Must have been a good one. lol
