    If you got $50,000 extra, is there anything safe you can invest in to make a few thousand extra?

    Thinking of getting a new car. Maybe do 12,000 miles a year.

    Any reason not to lease?

    • If you don't mind giving away your money and never owning a car, get a lease... pro(s), you get to have a brand new car every 3 years.Maaku
    • financially, i think a lease equals a very high interest rate. I've heard it is not financially smart to lease. Also, buy a car outright, no payments at all.capn_ron
    • If you buy a car, it loses money the second you drive off the lot.doggydoggdog
    • Leasing is like throwing money away. It's like rent and you get nothing at the end.monospaced
    • buy a 2 year old lot and let someone else take that hit.capn_ron
    • also, cars lose money every day generally. they are expensive things.capn_ron
    • I would lease a fancy car. generally, i'd purchase even though it's a depreciating asset.dorf
    • the car i bought had under 5K / year. they're out thereimbecile
    • Leased 3 before, own one and lease one. Lease = full tax write off & milage. Usually cheaper payments. You can always buy your lease afterwards.ArmandoEstrada
    • @armando, do you use a cpa or file your own taxes?dorf
    • ^yes, I would like to also know lolfuturefood
    • Lease if you want something brand new every few years. Like Armando said, you can always buy after the lease is up, and if you lease a car that tends to keep...lvl_13
    • ...its value, it's a no-brainer. Just make sure you negotiate that final purchase number if that's your end goal. That way you can purchase for a good price...lvl_13
    • ...and you know how the vehicle has been treated/repairs needed in the lease terms. Buying used is always a gamble. Not always bad-not always goodlvl_13
    • I am oldschool, I like to keep my fixed costs low thus I only buy. But never new. As mentioned above: Let others lose money with the write-off.Longcopylover
    • be aware of unexpected high costs when returning the leased vehicle.mekk
    • I ususally buy a car that's 5 or so years old with a low mileage. Thinking about selling and leasing a car. Wife is gonna do some number crunching.microkorg
    • I leased and I'm due to return the car next May, I also had 12k mi per year. I anhilated that mileage, so I'm buying the car.HijoDMaite
    • I don't know where you live, but in SoCal mileage restrictions are no bueno.HijoDMaite
    • People who say "buy used a year or two old" must have never tried that. Often times the savings are negligible vs new.section_014
    • Overall though, buy. My car has under 50k and it's paid off.section_014
    • Lease. Aging cars end up costing you more (cash and frustration) in the long run.Al_dizzle
    • I file as DBA on taxes so use lease as tax writeoff. Lease with option to buy, depending on car.ArmandoEstrada
    • Buy used. Cash. About 5 years old will be half the price of new, and you'll have lots to choose from and data to figure out which models have should be avoidedmonNom

    @maquito, my point is as follows:

    I find it absolutely irresponsible, for the reason that a parent's job is to actively protect their offspring from harm. This is the main thrust of my argument.

    What people are doing when posting their their photos and full names is, basically, doxxing them. There's a reason we, as adults, use handles and nicks online. It's to protect our privacy ... our right to which shrinks more and more as time passes. Any statement to the contrary is a load of shit, otherwise you would all be using your own proper names as handles.

    I simply can't conceive that a parent would put their precious little geniuses at risk like this. There are — believe it or not — paedophiles out there, for example, and they also know how to use the internet. And with the seemingly-routine leaks of user data here, there and everywhere, the point has been drilled home to protect what's left of our privacy. To me, it's mind-boggling to say, 'Oh, it's OK, the risk is really low. If something happens, well, we'll deal with it when the time comes.' Eh?

    Consider ...

    Example 1:
    'Honey, do you think we should get some insurance for this car?'

    'Naaaaaaah. On the off-chance we crash, we'll get it then.'

    Example 2:
    'Hm. We should probably get some anti-virus software for these servers, yeah?'

    'Pffft. Whatever, man. If we get hacked, I'll get some then. Otherwise, really low risk.'

    This is what you're basically saying when you post Junior's full name and photo.

    To drive the point home:
    • mg33 has his given name, initial of his surname and city in his QBN profile. No chance anyone could out his address because he's not given his full surname, right?
    • Oops! mg33 Jr's full name is in a post associated with him! Hey presto, someone interested into doing something nasty now has just about all the info they need to make it happen.

    Anyway, this is the last I'm going to say about it because, apparently, the consensus is it's absolutely OK to dox your spawn, and it represents acceptable risk. In the end, it's your collective problems.

    • your opinion sucks.
      just fyi
    • Well, what can I say. If you want, as a parent, to live up to your QBN nick, that's your prerogative.

      just fyi

    A crew of 4 CUNTS just tried to jack my car ... just as we're having our 9:30 stand up design meeting ... my buddy went out there like a champ and spooked them. These guys were already being hunted by police there was even a police chopper overhead ..They broke into a house around 8:30 a.m. this morning and have broken into a bunch of other cars this morning. According to someone on Nextdoor the APD helicopter is looking for them .... most likely trying to ditch that Chrysler and take mine sweet new precious, FUCK that some scary shit.

    Went to SixFlags yesterday, had a great time.
    It was fun and scary and now I have the most ridiculous sunburn ever.

    I underestimated the Texas SkyScreamer.
    While I was waiting in line I started looking at the structure and details of this ride. Big mistake to focus on that when you're going to be lifted 40 stories above the ground.

    My hands were so sweaty it didn't matter what I was trying to hold on to, lol. I never get sweaty hands.

    @Continuity, this made me think a lot a while ago, since I have friends who refused to post pictures of their kids until they where "old enough to have their own Facebook account"; how old, you may wonder, does a kid need to be to have an own Facebook profile?

    Apparently 12-13 is the age when school mates usually start, -in Uruguay-. Instagram: even younger, at 9 y/o, since it's easier to handle, easier privacy, etc.. Even if parents really want their kids off the matrix, shit gets real with the classic"everyone has, I must have, I don't wanna be a loser" ...bully fuelled kind of shit, and/or when they have access to a smartphone to create an account, not even their parents': a friend has a smartphone and lends to create account.

    That being said, lead me to wonder... what's the difference between starting your "online profile" when you're a baby and when you're 9 y/o. Or even more, it makes me wonder what kind of risk do you think this kind of exposure may lead to. Risk, danger, ...privacy violation...? Really? Maybe I'm missing the whole point here.

    How can an indexed picture of a baby with it's name on a blog can be the digital equivalent of dangling them off a balcony?

    • I think you're missing the point maquito.oey
    • But how?maquito
    • you asked it yourself, I mean: "risk, danger, ...privacy violation...?" you can research on the matter.oey
    • then you ask "really?" I can reply "yes really, why not?" but that's not a good answer. as dangling them off a balcony I think it's exaggerated but...oey
    • ...there's a certain risk, danger factor and privacy issues as well.oey
    • you're example though is a good one to raise questions where the line should be drawn. and to make all sorts of questions that come with the use of social mediaoey
    • by kids nowadays. kids wanting their pages is different from parents posting their kids pics but I understand your point and I think that's a good start for aoey
    • serious discussion. questions must be raised and things should be properly analyzed. critic is good if constructive. one can be skeptical without being cynicoey
    • about this. I understand continuity but that's not the best way to start a serious discussion still is question is legitimate to some point.oey
    • but that's my opinion.oey
    • Your kids are safe the internet is awash with billions of pics and images of babies and kids, names pics everything. I blame my wife and all her female friends_niko
    • On Facebook. It's a little unnerving for me personally and I try to get her to remove any posts of our kids but there is so much of it out there nobody bats an_niko
    • @oey, I get it. I couldn't agree more about analysing and constructive critic. It's definitely a serious topic. I also agree up a to a certain point about amaquito
    • mere danger factor, but I should research about it. I should not make an assumption just from what I think about it.maquito
    • I can not say I'm right but when friends do it I also raise that question but keep it for myself and question myself as well.oey
    • All cool!maquito
