  1. Random political thought. I haven't been paying very close attention to politics since about a week or two ago. I feel like I can breathe, not be concerned about the state of the country for a little bit since we have an adult and don't have to be concerned about some half-brain turd tweeting hate every 2 hours 7 days a week.
  2. So as it turns out, my 33 year old cousin has taken the Moderna vaccine as part of their trials. She got her second shot on Monday of this week. I asked her a few questions about it. First, with the first shot the said the side effects were more severe than any other vaccine she’s taken before. Mainly regarding pain and irritation around the injection site. It hurt enough for a couple days that she couldn’t sleep on the arm. She then got tested for antibodies and a PCR test. Her antibodies had built up and she did test positive for Covid. So the vaccine was effective.
  3. Well guys this is how Trump will **** us for years to come and one of the major problems with the democrat party. They’re ******* that just let the right wing walk all over them. Their (unrelated) next move is to hold democrats hostage or shut the government down. Watch it happen and watch democrats bend to this.
  4. I'm thankful for the group of people who I've come to know on ES over the years. This place is like none other and has a special place in my heart. It's been my first page opened of the day for over a decade. It's second nature now. Enjoy your Thanksgiving ES fam. I love you all.
  5. Thanksgiving, like Christmas, Halloween and any national holiday is not about history to me. It’s about what it is now and the traditions that I’ve established. So Thanksgiving is about being thankful for what you have in your life, and food, and football.
  6. AM radio blows. How a professional sports team was broadcasting on AM radio is ridiculous. Plus, who the hell even are these broadcasters?
  7. Yeah the advisor at the dealer said I’d be getting a 2021 model, so that’s what I’m expecting. He went through all of the differences so I’ll know the difference.
  8. They’re roomier. My wife’s coworker had a 3 and traded it in for a Y. I specifically want a car that’s fast as balls. Really I gotta name this thing? Well then, thanks for the preparation so I won’t have to come up with one on the spot.
  9. whys it gotta be a her? That’s sexist. Just kidding. I’ve never been one to name my cars. They’re utilitarian devices to me, not members of the family. Don’t hold against people that do though. That’s what we called our dog’s penis
  10. I didn't go FSD. I got a Model 3 Performance in Multi coat red with black interior. We didn't go white cause we want our kids to ride in the thing too and I feel like white will just get destroyed. The car they let us drive was the M3 LR+. They didn't have sport mode, or whatever the faster acceleration and better handling locked on us. The advisor showed us all the settings. It sure felt plenty fast when we drove it. I got up to like 80 mph when coming onto the Dulles Toll Road in Tysons very quick. I only assume that the Model 3 Performance is going to be even more insane.
  11. I don’t own the shop. And I also own a gas powered SUV. But I get your gist. There’s a part of me that feels like owning a Tesla is sacrilegious but I think I’ll get over it.
  12. Yeah, we never closed in March and April either. What did happen is people stopped driving (and they still haven’t been driving as much). Our March and April numbers were down 50-60% year over year. So far this year we are down 10% year over year. That doesn’t seem like much but on a 4 million dollar business, that’s 400k. Nearly half a million dollars. And when someone like myself, that gets incentivized based on stuff like this, it stings. Like, I’m not gonna starve, but it has me worried that we will need to layoff people. That it’ll be difficult to come back as a busi
  13. Frankly, I can’t afford that. I can’t just not work again. I can’t have people not leaving their homes to come to my business. I run an auto service shop. I need people driving and I need cars to work on. Quarantine is not an option for me.
  14. Well, I guess the only bright side (for now) in Nova is that the hospitalization rate is still low and the rate of death is still close to zero. Naturally, you'd expect these things to climb UNLESS the driver of case load is younger people. Of course, it's only a matter of time before those younger people start to infect the older and more at risk population again. We know what we need to do, just need to stick with it. Masks, distance, wash hands. Don't stay indoors with a group of people for too long. The end. This vaccine can't come soon enough.
