This begs the question from paulS - was the Ferrari authentic[Image: smile.gif].

Seemed to be. It looked as badly put together as all Fiats used to be - they own Ferrari. The two (dead) ones I've looked at closely were clearly put together by blind people. The Fiats are made by robots these days, the Ferraris I've seen were clearly hand built. And not in a good way.

RE: Is Vaping ‘Cool’?
First of all, it's not Ray Ban OR Revo - it's all about the Maui Jims.

I forget that exotic cars are a rare sight for most people.  They're so common here that I only really react if it's something hyper rare; a Bugatti or a 918 or a LaFerrari or something.  I'll pay more attention to a well-preserved 1991 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais W-41 than I will to yet another brightly colored Lamborghini Gallardo at this point.  AMG, Maserati, and Aston Martin sedans are so common here that they fade into the background with late model Bimmers.

That said - the richest people I know still shop at Walmart and Target, unless it's for something specifically high end.  One of the wealthiest people I regularly hang out with drives old beat up cars and dresses one step above a homeless man.  It's always funny to go to high end casinos with him and stand in line for the rewards desk - watch them force a smile while inwardly rolling their eyes as he walks up to the counter and then listen to their tone change DRAMATICALLY when they pull his points balance, LMAO.  He has a couple of C5 Z-06's and a Porsche Cayman, but he rarely drives them.

"Stupid poor people try to live rich; smart rich people live poor."

I'm the antithesis of this post.  I don't vape to look cool - I assume I look cool and if someone disagrees than they're wrong and I don't really care anyway.  And I preach the vape gospel to anyone that'll listen.  If they are disinterested I'll stop; if they ask questions I'll have them vaping within the hour.  If this turns people off to me, oh well.  I have plenty of friends already.  Wink

Hi AJ - I use Maui Jims for my fishing - best for seeing through water. I use my Revos for driving - best for driving in bad weather and when the sun is out but the roads are wet. I also have Oakleys with dark lenses for when it is really bright and Raybans which were my first buy before I knew better.[Image: smile.gif] FYI - I was a sunglass nut before I became ecignut[Image: tongue.gif].

I"m less of a sunglasses nut than I am my other interests, but once I discovered Maui Jim I just wear them for everything.  Best shades I've ever experienced.

My wife had an uncle that died when he fell asleep smoking while on oxygen and burned down his trailer and himself. I'm guessing that was karma since he was a downright nasty human. Wife beater, worthless bag of mostly water.
Quite powerful I must admit. Not much I won't do for that. And I'm just waiting for my father-in-law's house to launch, there are three people on oxygen there, and they all smoke. You can't walk across the floor without tripping on an oxygen line, I forbid my wife and kids to go visit, there are enough oxygen tanks in there to level a small city.

I practically live in Ray Ban but since I need glasses to drive I am in glasses anytime I'm behind the wheel and sometimes that can be for 1/2 my day....and frankly I like the way they feel...not anything about the brand, if they were some unknown small company I'd still wear them....now that said, I went to Ray Ban years ago as I ride a motorcycle and at the time the only brand that was a sturdy pair I could get that had the poly-carbonate lens that could handle a possible small stone/pebble or a nasty June bug/warp, etc......

Same here for anyone who asks me about vaping. In almost every since conversation I've had with anyone who asked or was interested in vaping, they were a convert...

Michael, I know there is a service in Houston and most every where, where you can rent "cool" cars for a day, a weekend, etc.  I won't be cheap but it will be fun.

An exotic sets you back $200-500/hr in Vegas, depending on the car.

A fun head-turner that costs less is the Polaris Slingshot.  You can rent one fore around $350/day after insurance and everything.

As an optician in a very high end establishment most of my sunglasses run over 500 dollars. My wife could fund a house with hers.
