Something New!

Categories: Uncategorized

exhaustPeople are going to be looking for new cars soon.  I  know some people who only keep their cars for  a few years before getting another one.  I even have one friend who only keeps his car for one year before he sells it and buys a new one.  That seems insane to me because I don’t like to buy cars, but I guess since he’s really into it doing it like that works for that.  Now the thing that is strange to me though is why be has to buy them.  Doesn’t he know the saying that a new car loses 10% of its value the moment you drive it off the lot?

So I wonder how much money is is actually missing out on by selling them so soon.

But I don’t think he really cares about that because he gets so excited when he gets the new car that it’s like alright, let’s sell this other one.  Since I have known him he has gotten a new car every year.  He only has one parking spot so he has to sell the other one and he always comes home with his new car and then will want to go driving places so he can drive it.  That’s a cool thing to enjoy, and don’t get me wrong, I like cars, too, I just think it’s a bit bizarre to get a new one so often.  I asked him if he had considered looking for the best luxury car lease deals and just doing it that way rather than buying new one all the time that are just going to go down in value when he has to sell them.  At least if he were to lease one he would only be making small payments on it and then could give it back.  I guess he likes buying it, though, because he feels more comfortable doing it that way.  I don’t really know the terms of how he does everything, I just know that he’s going to get a new car and he’s going to be crazy about it and then he’ll do it again with another car.  But since he enjoys it, who am I to tell him he shouldn’t do it that way.  I actually enjoy seeing the cars he gets and since I live right next to him, I can park my car next to his.  My car isn’t as cool as his but I don’t care.  I park in the same spot.

The Internet Meetup

Categories: Uncategorized

high-speed-757095-mThere is a place on the internet where only the cool people hang out.  If that is actually true, I have no idea because I’m certainly not invited.  Don’t get me wrong, I do a lot of stuff on the internet.  I am a member of a couple sites and I know a lot of people online and I have even emailed people before that I met online to talk about random things.  But the internet seems strange in its ways and also a bit confusing.  There are some people who really care about what people think about them online.  I mean, the internet is (mostly) anonymous, but there is still a desire to be cool even when you are posting anonymously or just talking about whatever.  People want to feel that sense of being liked and even if you don’t actually know the people with whom you’re talking you can still get a similar experience online as you would if you were actually hanging out with people.

I have even seen a few services that allow you the best place to buy youtube views to make it seem like more people have liked your page.  That is probably something that people use for a specific reason but it was still a bit odd to be because it’s kind of like buying votes that you are awesome.  Not that I have a need to do that.  Cuz you know.  The thing I said at the beginning of this post is true.

I’m part of the internet that is cool and I hang out with other cool internet users.

Just kidding.  I mostly go on forums and post funny pictures and look at pictures of houses or whatever people are posting and then when I get tired of that I go watch TV or hang out with some people.  I have never paid people to like my profiles and I don’t know that I would, although I do have over 50 friends on Facebook and I think that makes me pretty awesome.  I even tell people to find me online when I meet them in real life.  They usually don’t, but how often would you even do that?  I mean if you met the person once and then you add them online is that creepy or is that cool?  I’m so cool I don’t even know.  But I know that I do like most of what I do online and that’s probably why I visit as many websites as I do when I’m feeling like something needs to make me not spend too much time watching TV.
