WTF

My dad does tile for a living, this is one of the houses he was working on. Can anyone explain this?

There are three fucking bathrooms in one fucking room.

It's a fucking orgy house. For fucking.

I had a totally logical explanation until he entered the third bathroom

Want the city to shut down an entire interstate for you and your friends to drive 200 mph on public roads? Done.

Most people think it's nice to be rich because you can buy whatever you want and eat whatever you want. Want to eat a thawed mammoth? It can be arranged. Want to fly around in a working jet pack? That's possible, too.

But that isn't really what's great about being rich. Sometimes I could eat a $2 meal in Bangkok, and it would be delicious. No need to eat those $400 meals at Michelin starred restaurants. All the other activities I mentioned are fun, but I can have a lot of fun just playing Zelda Breath of the Wild all day long while eating a NYC pizza.

Fly first class? No need. When I fly alone, I just book an economy class ticket in the center of a three seat row. Usually this means that in a not so full flight, nobody will want to sit next to you when they can sit somewhere else. If it's a couple, they wouldn't want to be separated. When checking in, you can try to change your seat, and you can tell from there, where the empty seats are. Now that you have the whole row to yourself, you can lift up the armrests and basically have a giant couch that is wider than what first class and business class gets.

As for driving around in a Lamborghini every day? It gets old after a while. Can't even pick your nose in the car because people keep staring at you. There's also that myth that you get girls with the car. I find the opposite to be true. First of all, it's mostly men who come up to you and talk to you because of the car. Secondly, I've been told by girls that the car made them not want to talk to me at first because they just immediately assume that anyone who drives a Lamborghini is a douche. Thirdly, you attract a lot of attention from gold diggers. If you're into those girls, then yeah, it's a great car to have. But not me.

So what's so great about being rich? Three things. One is freedom. No more alarm clocks. No more having to be somewhere at some time. Every day feels like a day off. I get to travel the world whenever I feel like it, and last month I booked a last minute flight to go to another state across the country for a weekend because a long time friend there needed someone to hang out with after being dumped by her girlfriend.

The second thing is having the ability to help others in a significant way. It sucks to feel like your hands are tied and you can't help others. That's how I used to feel when my family was struggling financially and I didn't have the money yet to do something about it. Nowadays I have funded other people's kids' college funds, tipped people much more than what I was paying for, custom built an Iron Man suit to cheer up kids at hospitals, helped get clean water to villages that before didn't have access to it, and etc. It feels great to be able to help, especially when I can do it anonymously and just walk away. I learned that the anonymous part is important, because once people find out that you're generous, all sorts of people will come to you asking you for your money, time, and blood.

The third thing is the ability to save time without feeling guilty about it... Well, slightly less guilty. Since money is abundant for me, time has become my most valued resource, because time is one of the only things in my life that can't be replaced. So if there's a chance for me to save time by spending money, I will. For example, I have Global Entry and a APEC business travel card. This lets me have a much shorter TSA and immigration and visa lines. It's not even that expensive to get these things. But back when I was poor, I would be willing to wait to save money. I would even go out of my way to take the free bridges in NYC because I don't want to pay the $8 tolls for the Midtown Tunnel. That's because I was raised by my parents to save money. So I felt guilty when I was spending money on myself. To this day, I still do sometimes and only buy things when they're on sale. But nowadays, I wouldn't mind spending some money if it saves me time.

Also when it comes spending money on others, I just splurge. Spending money on myself doesn't always make me that much happier. But I noticed that when I spend the money on others, they feel very very happy. And seeing them smile makes me smile, too. So I'm way more willing to open my wallets when it comes to buying things for others.

So to sum up my experience being rich, it's more about not having to spend time doing things you don't want to do rather than about being able to buy things that most other people can't.

I have trouble writing things like these in public because it can be interpreted as a rich dude being ungrateful for the luxurious lifestyle he has. But it's more about how I became more grateful for the less luxurious lifestyle that I had all along. I wouldn't feel so bad if I lived a middle class lifestyle again, and it's exactly what I do half the year anyway. I move back into my modest house in the block where I grew up in every summer, and my happiness level remains unchanged compared to if I were to go back to my much much bigger house down in Florida. After all, even in my bigger house, I spend most of my time in only three rooms of that house anyway. There's really not much need to own a big house.

Also worth noting, he said it was a 2 bedroom 5 1/2 bathroom house. Really bizzare lol

Please just stay in the car

What was she trying to do when getting out of the car anyhow?

Probably just got rear ended, and got out to look at the damage.

He brings the car to a stop without incident. /sub/savedyouaclick

Their own car ran over their legs.

WTF

Damn, dude is limber.

My guess is this s screen test for a movie or video game.

In all seriousness, if this guy doesn't do the mocap for monsters in horror movies/games, he damn well should.

Ill bet anyone a sandwich that this dude can smoke his own pole.

Storm with bad hail just came through.

New roof and siding woot woot

if they had insurance lol. I was an idiot when the Joplin tornado hit. lost my house and since I didn't have insurance, FEMA gave me 7k(which shouldn't have happened). it's all my fault for not having home owners insurance.

Home owners 101, always get insurance

Renters should have insurance, too. It's surprisingly cheap.

Storm chasers get more than they bargained for (El Reno 2013)

That guy's reactions are so comical it honestly looks fake.

Like why would you roll down the window? It's like the acting of one of those fake ghost shows or something on TLC.

I grew up in El Reno. I had that reaction anytime I rolled down the window and looked out regardless of the weather.

Kinda feel like this is exactly what you bargain for when you chase storms...

They know the risks. Modern technology has made storm chasing fairly safe if you know what you're doing.

The problem with this tornado was that it massively increased in size in a short amount of time. This was the largest tornado on record. 2.3 miles wide I believe. It also changed directions. That combined with being rain wrapped made this tornado particularly dangerous. I don't believe there have been any storm chaser deaths besides from this storm.

A Motorcycle... Swing.

This is amazing!

Guy is wearing a helmet And a safety harness Bike is hooked into the system separately Equipment is industrial-grade sturdy, not gonna collapse on him

This guy is having fun and taking appropriate precautions. Good on him.

As ridiculous as this seems, it honestly looks like it's being done safely

He's probably pulling the clutch in when he goes backward.

But he isn't keeping the rear tire from touching on the backswing, just a small lean...

Bird tryin' to do snake a solid and save him from evil spider - and look what he gets in return.

Co-worker got a flat tire on way to work today. Pulled this monster out of the tire.

80 Penny Nail.

Either had some construction workers drop it or, what I think is most likely, a surveyor didn't set their temporary benchmark properly or was going to and forgot and left the nail on the ground.  I wouldn't be surprised if you find some shiners near by or some pink flagging.

I bet it Hurt

Now there's a satisfying flat! It really rankles me when I get stopped by some little tack or sidewall hit, but if that one takes you down you don't mind as much.

Normal Day in the Office

"the next texting motherfucker rolls in front of me, gets it"

My favorite part was when a chunk of car careened off into the parked car and set the alarm off.

You mess with tram-o You get a slam-o

Watch her hands, she fully applies the brake when she sees the car going for it, before it's actually in the way.
