  1. One of my favorite shows. Haven't started season 4 as I like to watch everything in a short time frame. Didn't wanna watch a few episodes only to have to wait a few months to finish it.
  2. This thing is a dream. Fast as hell, nice as hell, every feature I could want, and I've been getting a shit ton of compliments.

      It's not hard to pull pics off the internet of cars.but I find hard to believe that some 18 year old no matter what job you're doing can afford that.

      I don't really need to prove anything, I bought the car, and will continue posting pics of it if that's enough proof for ya. I could timestamp one if it really means something. 

  5. So after lots of research, some haggling, and pretty good luck, I am getting a 2017 Mustang GT Premium. I know some of you have said it wasn't the best option at this age, but I have my college tuition covered first off, so that's a lot of money there that I won't need to worry about (or loans). I have a steady job paying pretty decently, and grandparents who are willing to help me a little with insurance. They're going to pay what I pay for my car now, and I am footing the difference. Anyway, I'm very excited for it to come. Here's some photos from today. It's got an automatic transmission (with paddle shifters whoop) and 18" black foundry wheels as options. It's also black which was my #1 choice. I put a deposit down today, will be placing the down payment Monday, and when the salesman that helped us comes back from vacation, it will be delivered next Friday.
  6. So that 2016 EcoBoost I was looking at? Might turn into a 2016 GT. Very excited.

      I don't want a beater though, life is short, money is important yes, but this won't break the bank in the long run and I wanna be happy, so I said fuck it and I'm doing the payments on the car. I know you're offering some good advice, but this is one of those things I want more than anything.

      And that's all that really matters. :) Post pics in the car topic whenever you get it.

      I'll be sure to, thank you guys for the input, I've been on top of my paychecks anyway and have a good amount saved up, and even with the payments I can still contribute to my savings :D

  7. I made pickles once with my uncle when I was little. He has about an acre's worth of land (which is a lot for Long Island) and grows all types of vegetables. Homemade pickles with homegrown cucumbers. Speaking of gardening, here's one of his pumpkins this year, it's about 150lbs so far. Will likely hit 700+ if all goes well
  8. Doing some car shopping, Ford is offering 0% APR and $1,000... Looks like a 2016 Mustang EcoBoost may be on the horizon.

     

    Only a few more years till I get that GT... right now it's too expensive.

      You could get a tesla for 35k... How much is the mustang? 25?

    4. Brian

      Brian

      I rent so I'd have no way to charge it, the Stang sits around $34k but I'm gonna negotiate it for $30k

  9. Been getting into the occasional cigar. Fun hobby. Not sure how often I'm gonna wanna do it with the whole cancer thing but anyone else here into it?

      i know cigar enthusiasts... gotta get yourself a humidor tho if you're gonna start collecting stogies... they're ok, but ever since i quit smoking cigarettes, i quit smoking those too... but a good cigar is a good cigar, much more enjoyable than a cigarette...

      No. The are nasty and obnoxious.

  10. I've smoked on and off for about 10 months now. The first four, was daily with my best friend. Typical senior year shit. After about three months, I started dating my girl, winter got cold as hell, and smoking outside just wasn't as feasible. He got a girl too, and we started hanging a little less. We smoked still, a few times a week almost daily, but not every day. Then in February he and I had a falling out, didn't really talk or hang for a month or two, and I barely smoked then. Longest I went without was a month, and I didn't crave it at all. Not headaches, no constant thoughts, nothing. I found falling asleep a little harder at night, but I always have and relied on melatonin before I smoked. Now I smoke maybe twice a week, sometimes I'll go a few without. I guess it's really about moderation or willpower. My biggest suggestion is, try and have another distraction. For me, it was my girlfriend. We spend a lot of time together and she keeps my busy. I also don't really have an addictive personality. Weed didn't change me as a person per say. But it allowed doors to open for me. I became more social because of it, cared less about trivial shit, and just had a good time finishing my final year of high school. I grew as a person, and I think part of it was because marijuana brings people together in a way. It gave me oppurtunities to socialize in ways I never would have. Would it have happened anyway? I'm sure it would've, but it allowed it to happen sooner. My friend was a big reason for it too, but right now he's head over heals infatuated with his girl. She's his first, so I get it, but it sucks losing a friend because she hogs him basically 24/7. His cousin is a good friend of mine though so he keeps me in the loop. Anyway, I was never too open about my use here, or anywhere. But I figured I'd share my short story. Plus, smoking daily was easy since some girl we knew hooked us up with fire O's for $50. We got lucky meeting her lol

      Expecting tires to stay on the car is a given. That must've been terrifying.

      I was oddly focused when it happened like something kicked in to keep it in control. Scary as fuck though I was shaken up after though not gonna lie

  12. Looking to sell my car, lots of shit keeps happening and I've spent enough. If I do sell I either want a newer Mustang, Wrangler, or a truck. I love the 2015's, and have been looking at used EcoBoost premiums. Best interior yet, but sound like shit for being a 4cyl. They have a factory turbo tho. Otherwise I guess a GT from 05-12 whatever fits my budget. If I can't do that, I'm looking at two door Wranglers as 4 doors are too much. Trucks are all in shit condition unless you spend a fuckton of money so its a lost resort I think. Any recommendations?

      Make sure you get an interesting job. Do something monotonous, and your statement will be more literal. It's depressing.
