But now with the kids grown, the ornate carvings and "unfluffy" low seating are a joy to my heart.
Your couch is older proven technology and the Tesla isn't.

I think you have the Volt and the Tesla mixed up. Oh and BTW. If you sail across the ocean you won't fall of the edge. I can see how new ideas scare you.

Just a question to Mikey and Saltwn ......... Why don't each of you buy one of these wonderful machines ? It's not because they are outrageously expensive ,and useless as every day transport is it ? Get one and put a sail on it for days when it's cloudy .........win win ! Report your findings when you've owned one as the only vehicle that you've owned for two years .

Same reason I don't buy a lot of things. I don't own a Ferrari for the same reason.

The thread was about how they paid off their loan.

I think the sentiment was "fun". I know that's hard for a gopper to understand if it isn't gun related, but nevertheless it's true.
