    I once bought a scratch ticket with my last dollar. That ticket won me $50. It was literally like winning the lottery.

    I love to read, but unfortunately carpal tunnel injuries make it painful to hold a large book. Thank God for E-readers

    I’m a mechanic with over $75k worth of tools. I know that professional tools require their own insurance. Even if the shop burned down, tools are not covered unless they have their own policy. This is also true of your homeowner policy if you have a lot of valuable goods (say, $30k in jewelry). The jewelry would need its own rider.

    Around here he wouldn’t have had the choice.

    Several years ago a friend of my father had his Nissan truck stolen. Two years later he saw a truck in the Costco parking lot with a unique feature that identified it as his: he had built his own trailer hitch for it and welded it to the frame. The truck had been completely restored and painted a different colour, with a lift kit and nice tires/wheels, but that hitch proved the truck was his. He parked so as to block it in and called the police. They arrived, he showed them the trailer hitch, and they waited until the guy came out. The police confronted him, had the vehicle impounded, and when they checked it out later they found the correct VIN in one of the hidden places on the vehicle. The guy was charged with possession of stolen goods and my father’s friend got his truck back.

    I agree wholeheartedly that it is not OK, but then I disagree vehemently with just about everything Trump says or does.

    I still remember the full VIN of the 1988 Thunderbird I had in 1995. A ‘71 Mustang’s VIN would be significantly shorter (17 digit VINS did not become a thing until ‘81), and even still, many of the digits in a VIN would be the same for every ‘71 Mustang, a few more would be the same for all with the same engine, transmission, etc. it’s the last 7 digits of the vin that identify that particular car in that model line. This still holds true today – if you call a dealer looking for parts they’ll ask you for the last 7 or 8 digits of the VIN, and from that they can identify the car.

    It’s not hard to believe that for the first several years after his car was stolen that Crunchy would have looked at the VIN of every ‘71 Mustsng that he saw, so he’d probably have his own memorized.

    Trump didn’t create this new world, he just made it OK.

    One thing I’m thankful for: My dog is absolutely unperturbed by loud noises. Thunder, fireworks, even gun shots don’t bother her. My mother’s dog, however, is terrified of the wind.

    I stopped Wordling when they started wanting me to create an account and log in before I could view my stats. Shame, I was undefeated.
