    Stian Ytterdahl tattooed the receipt from his McDonald's visit

    The 18-year-old did it as 'punishment' for his success with the ladies

    Mr Ytterdahl, thought it was better than the alternative - a Barbie doll

    McStupid? Norwegian teen has his McDonald's dinner receipt tattooed on his ARM for a dare... and his dad's locked him out as a result

    Somehow I think he may regret that in a few years.

    Something positive: At least he’s alive, not permanently injured and not a convicted criminal. Unfortunately that can’t be said about a number of other young men in his generation.

    (But I do kind of wonder what kinds of chemicals are in that tattoo ink, and where and by whom that ink is made…)

    When he becomes a grandfather, he'll be able to sit down with his grandkids and say "back when I was young, a burger cost only 12 Krone!" and show them his arm.

    If that was the only place McDonald's was, I'd be very happy. (his arm, not Norway:wink:)

    what a sad tattoo to have.
    soon
    hope not but his judgment doesn't appear to be very 'good'

    I will venture a guess that this particular Norwegian will not get to the point in life where he can afford a Model S.

    They're a lot cheaper than other fast food...

    A take-away pizza costs about $28 to $50, for instance. Eating at a restaurant is even more expensive. I ate at a Indian place last weekend - and the bill for four people ended up at $400. (Including two bottles of wine and a couple of glasses of beer.)

    - - - Updated - - -

    You might be surprised. A cashier at a grocery store can earn something like $65.000/year here, so even if he isn't the sharpest knife in the drawer, hard work may put him in a position where he can afford a Model S.

    Yeah but the cost of living.

    A McDonalds Cheeseburger at $8.33 or $100 per person at an Indian place.

    Yearly registration tax on Model S is $3300.

    Where?

    The yearly cost for a $100k Model S here is (with 25%/$25k downpayment):

    - $10.400 in financing (8 year loan, 5% interest, 28% tax deduction on interest)
    - $1.300 in insurance (rough estimate)
    - $750 in servicing
    - $750 in tires
    - $500 in electricity
    - $100 in annual registration fees

    Total: $13.800/year, or $1.150/month.

    If you make $65.000/year, that works out to about $4.150/month after taxes. That means that after paying for the Model S, you have $3.000/month to live for. A perfectly okay apartment costs $1.500/month, food costs around $700/month, which leaves $800/month for everything else. That's not 100% comfortable, but certainly workable.

    To save up the $25k, you'd have to save $1000 of those future Model S payments per month for two years, and use the remaining $150 on public transportation.

    According to Bjorn from Osla Norway,who makes Model S videos for youtube,

    http://www.teslamotorsclub.com/showthread.php/24575-Bjørn-s-Tesla-Model-S-videos/page12

    "Yes, higher weight means higher tax for re-registring. Look at this calc:
    Kalkulator: omregistreringsavgift - Tollvesenet


    Unfortunately, google translate couldn't make the submit button work. "Personbil" means regular car or a sedan. The tax is 19.6k NOK for a Model S. That's about 3300 USD. Ridiculous if you ask me."



    I suppose one can live at a barely acceptable level to drive a $100k car but kinda stupid. Maybe a decision someone that gets a McDondals receipt tattoo would do after all.

    "Omregistreringsavgift" is a fee you pay to transfer ownership of a car after the first-time registration. It makes selling/buying used cars expensive, but it has no effect on the cost of owning a car long-term.

    The yearly registration fee is around $100.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Also, I'm certainly not recommending that the guy runs out and buys a Model S, but in 10-20 years, he may well be able to comfortably afford a Model S. The Model S doesn't have a luxury car price here in Norway - pretty much every one can afford one if they work hard and prioritize it.

    I remember we had to disuade a 18 yo trainee from buying a Model S on the Norwegian EV forum. He could very very narrowly afford one, because he didn't pay rent in a house his family owned and had saved up around $20k. If he had bought one, he would have used around 70-80% of his income on the car. Of course, he had to have a P85.

    IIRC, we talked him out of a P85 and into a 2-3 yo Leaf.

    I saw 3 cheeseburgers for 36 Krone, which is 12 NOK a piece. At the rough exchange rate of 6:1, that's $2. Am I miscalculating?

    No. You are correct.

    Ordering the Happy Meal shows very poor judgement.
