At $10 per month, they're showing desperation to keep the doors open. I'd be willing to bet their profit margins are next to nothing with overhead being EXTREMELY high surviving off leverage and constant borrowing. Be interested to see their P&L. Seriously, who would want to train in an uninspired library?

They're going after the most profitable clients.  People who will only go to the gym twice a year.  From a business perspective it makes perfect sense.   Cheesy

Over the next five years, Volkswagen is planning to spend 84.2 billion euros ($114 billion) on upgrading technologies, modernizing plants and developing new car models.  The flat four for Porsche is just the start of what's coming from the Volkswagen group.

We have this man to thank for all the wonderful cars from VW

Who gives a fuck do you know how many times we have seen these movies.

I would watch Rocky 1 every year and still enjoy it.  It's nostalgia from my childhood.  If your not interested than don't!

I'm very impressed with Louis Theroux documentaries.  This one is funny and bodybuilding related.  Embarrassed

not if you're rich...

Wealthy white people are buying up the property making it more expensive for the locals to live there.  most of this woman's anger towards Haole's is due to wealthy whites making it expensive to live there.

I grew up in Hawaii and this woman brings back fond memories of what it was like to live there.  Lips sealed

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PlRndNywnfI" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PlRndNywnfI</a>

The man in the video is a car salesman and the woman is taking the car out for a test drive in Hilo on the Big Island Hawaii.

"I don’t appreciate the way you spoke to me," she is heard saying in the beginning of the clip. "You should have just minded your own f***ing business."

The man replies, "I ask you to slow down because you're doing 70mph [113km/h] in a 35mph [56km/h zone].

"And I do this all the f**ing time", says the woman, to which the passenger responds, "That doesn't make it okay."

"It doesn't matter; it's my test, not yours!" we hear the woman say. "It's my life and it's my job," replies the man.

Simply because she's more relatable than the bikini beauties. You can find pics of her journey....the average person will stop before they look like her currently....but they still think she did it without the use of substances.

She used to be a school teacher and then transformed herself. People love the story. 

Unbelievable, there are women out there that actually think she is natural.  Lips sealed

This is so sad.

University of California - Los Angeles Health Sciences

Summary:
The more muscle mass older Americans have, the less likely they are to die prematurely, new research shows. The findings add to the growing evidence that overall body composition -- and not the widely used body mass index, or BMI -- is a better predictor of all-cause mortality. "In other words, the greater your muscle mass, the lower your risk of death," said the study's co-author. "Thus, rather than worrying about weight or body mass index, we should be trying to maximize and maintain muscle mass."

I always believed this to be true and now we have proof. Cool

That's a ten-year-old Bentley Arnage. They go for around $35K (or much less if Rich got it salvage, as Amy claimed all his cars were). I wouldn't buy one because the reliability is horrible and maintenance costs are ridiculous. They look nice and they impress the neighbors, though Grin.



I thought the 6.75 OHV V8 was bullet proof.  The parts might be expensive the the engine is dead simple.

You must be very young and naïve.

Buffett started buying stocks at precisely the correct moment in history.  Buying all the insurance companies was smart thing at the time.  Now he only "invests" in companies that have a government backing and banks that pay him a 5-10% coupon.  The man is an insider, despite his Coke drinking and ukulele playing grandpa image.  A very shrewd and greedy man

The stock market is a huge bubble right now all pumped up by the Fed reserve.  When this thing pops, it's gonna make the 1929 crash look like a picnic.

Every asset class has it's cycle... right now stocks and RE are NOT the place to be.

Buy gold and silver instead.

Your wrong about one thing.  When Warren first started buying stocks it was not the right time to buy.  Ben Grahm and his father told him to wait, but he wanted to just jump in there and do it.

He is shrewd and has crafted his gradpa image, but he is also very giving of his knowledge to everyone.  I have nothing but admiration for the man.

A Plea to the Mods:

...and anyone at Solstas with any control over this board and it's posts:

Please set some kind of filter or security setting so that when any of the following key words or phrases appear, the entire post is deleted before it even hits the board. They would be:

"Oh brother"
"Son"
"Meltdown"
"Village Idiot"
As well as any sentence that refers to anyone's wife or daughter.

I'm sure all of us, with the exception of this individual, would agree this would be great.

Thank you.

Keep up the good work Mr Griffin! Cheesy

Concrete slab, 2 x 4 wood stick frame covered in plywood or OSB then stucco over the top in this case, composite rubber shingles on the roof.

Materials wise a house like that is less than people think.

Most of the houses in Florida like the one shown are made of cement blocks to withstand hurricanes.

Doesn't Gulfstream and some private jet manufacturers use Roll Royce engines?  BMW hasn't been very reliable.  I know there are multiple fail safes but BMW  Undecided.

Rolls Royce has a full line of jet engines all the way up to engines for the Boeing 777.  There is much more $$$$ in jet engines than cars and that's why Rolls Royce sold the car business.

I rented a house like this in palm bay for $900 a month six years ago.  Land is cheap in Florida. The guy who owned the dealership I bought my car from said he used to take home lots as a down payment on cars.

24  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: How long will the world's oil last? on: December 14, 2013, 09:00:42 PM
It can`t be a myth.  Oil is a finite resource.

In 2009, Dr. Christoph Rühl, chief economist of BP, argued against the peak oil hypothesis:[174]

    Physical peak oil, which I have no reason to accept as a valid statement either on theoretical, scientific or ideological grounds, would be insensitive to prices. (...) In fact the whole hypothesis of peak oil – which is that there is a certain amount of oil in the ground, consumed at a certain rate, and then it's finished – does not react to anything.... Therefore there will never be a moment when the world runs out of oil because there will always be a price at which the last drop of oil can clear the market. And you can turn anything into oil into if you are willing to pay the financial and environmental price... (Global Warming) is likely to be more of a natural limit than all these peak oil theories combined. (...) Peak oil has been predicted for 150 years. It has never happened, and it will stay this way.

Google Peak Oil, that should help.

Peak oil is a myth!  America has met 87 percent of its energy needs this year and is on track to be energy independent in the next ten years.  U.S. oil production this year is the highest it's been in 24 years.
