Yeah, I can afford to fuel my gas guzzling V8's. We can buy Charlie and Biker a bus pass with our great credit.
Gasoline taxes and federal mandates on formulation account for most of the disparity with other states. We have refineries and supertanker terminals 40 miles away.
Pa State gas tax is 60 cents a gallon. That money is supposed to go to roads and bridges. Somehow The PA State Police ended up with billions from that fund.

The government sucks, I agree
ALL liberals are racist/NAZIS. That's my starting point.

About a month and a half ago I took a 5% stake in a company called Upstart. Here is their blurb from Wiki:

Upstart is an AI lending platform that partners with banks to provide personal loans using non-traditional variables, such as education and employment, to predict creditworthiness.


They announced earnings today:

Tue, August 10, 2021, 1:05 PM·18 min read
SAN MATEO, Calif., August 10, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Upstart Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: UPST), a leading artificial intelligence (AI) lending platform, today announced financial results for its second quarter of the fiscal year 2021 ended June 30, 2021. Upstart will host a conference call and webcast at 1:30 p.m. Pacific Time today. An earnings presentation and link to the webcast are available at ir.upstart.com.

"Our second quarter results continue to show why Upstart has the potential to be among the world’s largest and most impactful FinTechs," said Dave Girouard, CEO of Upstart. "Lending is the center beam of revenue and profits in financial services and artificial intelligence may be the most transformational change to come to this industry in its 5,000 year history."

Second Quarter 2021 Financial Highlights

Revenue. Total revenue was $194 million, an increase of 1,018% from the second quarter of 2020. Total fee revenue was $187 million, an increase of 1,308% year-over-year.

Transaction Volume and Conversion Rate. Bank partners originated 286,864 loans, totaling $2.80 billion, across our platform in the second quarter, up 1,605% from the same quarter of the prior year. Conversion on rate requests was 24% in the second quarter of 2021, up from 9% in the same quarter of the prior year.

Income from Operations. Income from operations was $36.3 million, from ($11.4) million the prior year.


There's more to it. Google it if you are interested. Just thought I would bring this here in case anyone wants to look into it.

Nope, look at the organic growth. A couple of UJers buying shares isn't going to be needed.

Another stock I've owned for a couple years is Crowdstrike. They were just added to the Nasdaq 100, and two other minor indexes. The stock is up about 8% today on that news. They report earnings on Aug. 31. One of their main competitors(Palo Alto Networks) just reported earnings, beat projections, and is currently up 17% today. If CRWD has results, it looks like they might get a nice pop as well.

No guarantees, and do your own due diligence.

Crwd had a good earnings report, and beat expected numbers, but didn't blow them away like they have in the past. I've sold half of my Crwd shares and have bought more Upstart, as well as some shares in a company with the ticker Mndy.

Are there any negatives at all for using .223 in a rifle that is designed for NATO 5.56? Any fouling issues?

I haven't shot this firearm yet, but everything I read says no. You don't want to shoot 5.56 out of a gun chambered for 223 do to higher pressure with 5.56

^ that is pretty much the only guideline. they are basically interchangeable. a 5.56 shell might be a bit stronger so more powder, but that is kind of one of those points that hair splitters grind on and its not much of a big deal at all.

the main thing that i would point out is the difference in using bullets with brass shells vs steel shells. stell shells "can", over time, do a bit more damage to the chamber. brass is a little more expensive, BUT, it can be re-loaded. You can't reload steel.

I didn't, I was thinking of a fella I worked with around 2004 and he got caught up in a currency scam. He wired $30,000 to some dude in France to buy Iraqi money with some bullshit story that The US Government would guarantee the dinar and he would get back $130,000 to $250,000. He told me he could get me in on it. I was in my early 20's and didn't have a pot to piss in and I told he was a fucking idiot.

yeah a really good friend of mine got scammed about 25 years ago. he tried like hell for a few months to get me in on it. it was a company that had figured out a "glitch" in the currency trading system and could skim off conversions of dollars to pesos. He had statements showing he had made a shit ton of money. It was all a scam. I think after they busted them he got about 25 cents on the dollar back.

it never fails to amaze me how ridiculous these stories seem and yet people fall for it.
