    Certainly buy a solar+battery system for your house. I assume most of you have already done so.

    Do you have to pour the concrete yourself into molds you had to assemble?

    No but I would certainly have paid extra had the kit been available.

    Is it beyond Elon to create a business that sells 3D flat packs in the space time continuum?

    Congratulations, that is awesome! We used to kid a guy I worked with that sold some ISO to buy a Miata, that if he’d waited few years, it could have been a Ferrari. Now I look at that as so passé, the analogy is now a 3 and a Roadster.

    Tip the dealer.

    Edit: sorry I’m bragging, but I’ve fantasized about an X for 7 years, but I am not rich. I plotted and schemed. And then bought the most expensive one I could with cash. And it’s GLORIOUS.

    I used the sale of some shares to pay off my mortgage. I might have to sell a few more next quarter to pay the capital gains taxes.... :(

    @rdalcanto I may do that as well.

    I would also like the idea of buying land somewhere to build a cabin.

    I called in my Day 1 Pre-reveal reservation and bought a Model 3 from options gains. Still holding onto my shares. Just picked it up yesterday and the fit and finish was stellar. Leaps and bounds better than the one I rented on Turo in 2018. I'm over the moon.

    It was, and by chance I happened to take out a lot of my winnings at that level.

    Now excuse me I have to get back to slaying the homeless population :cool:;)

    “Wealth is what you take from the world; worth is what you give back.”

    — Mark Goulston

    I'm formalizing more of my long-range plans:

    1. Get rid of any debts
    2. Philanthropy. Apply 1-2% of my wealth (thanks a lot to TSLA).

    I'm still on path with what I've always wanted to do with my life. I read this quote in my mid-20's while at a tech company (as an Engineer at the time) and taking a Social Entrepreneurship course for my MBA. It's where I got a lot of my thinking around volunteering, donating, investing, life-views, etc.

    Just trying to get started, even more, on the 2nd leg of this quote going forward.

    Well, I've always wanted to have a mistress to take care of me in my old age.
    Looks at brokerage account balance.
    Well, well. Perhaps two identical twins, 30 years younger and both RN's.

    Been looking at collectables to buy. Figured the Nintendo mii figurines are good. Find a hobby, build up a collection.

    Maybe start another company and use that to give back to the community and yeah. Some time of charity. But not donations to charities. I want to set aside a certain $$$ amount and actually help someone with a sad story back to their feet.
