If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

What isn't like that?

Do you know what food used to be? Do you eat in restarsunts?

Do you know what houses used to be? Do you have more than 1 room in your house?

Do you know what phones used to be? Do you have a smart phone?

Etc etc.

Just because something has been improved upon since it was invented doesn't mean it's a waste. Of course it has some merit, but saying that we should all only use the most basic type of something is ridiculous.

People can spend money on whatever they'd like. They earned it let em enjoy it

Good point but it's something about a car that sticks out.

You can justify fancy and very overpriced food because you have a sensitive stomach (or similar) etc...

You can justify a big house because you have a big family and/or you have a lot of "stuff"

You are one hundred percent correct with the smartphone, there's absolutely no need for the latest and greatest but that is a rather grey area. The purpose of a phone was to connect person A to B "wirelessly". The purpose of a smartphone? Not so sure... perhaps the ultimate time waster?

But a car? A car was and is ultimately just to get you from point A to B. Some do it faster and some slower but that's all it is and if you live in any sort of metropolis the speed goes out the door anyway. So what net gain is there in spending X amount more then the average?

Well for starters, when talking about cars, safety.

As we are talking about Dan's car from that post:

"According to a Tesla blog post, Model 3 demonstrated the lowest probability of injury of all cars the NHTSA has ever tested. The agency's data showed that Model 3 occupants are less likely to get seriously hurt in a front, side or rollover crash than in any other car."

gimme a break !How many people do you know that eat fancy food because they have a sensitive stomach?. How many people do you know w who live in a fancy ( not just big ) house because it gives them more space. we live in a generation of creature comforts and a car is no different
May you slide down the banister of happiness & get many splinters of success up your career.

Can't remember the right thread - but I'm seeing less "unread posts" than "new replies".
Looks like a bug to me.

Wondering the same, the comments make me very skeptical.

On the other hand, all the dd copycats posted the same within minutes so they must hold it's real  :D
