I think I'm going to close this instance down soon. I'm now over at @kazriko now. Maybe I can reuse this vps for something more fun.

Darn, I've had a bag of Ultimate Albanese gummy bears in my shelf for over a month. Apparently the shelf life of those isn't particularly long. I'll have to remember to use them sooner next time. (They're better than the normal ones, but I've kept the normal ones on the shelf for 2-3 months before.)

The electric company sent me an email about electric cars. They compared a midsized car vs an econobox electric. It didn't break even until 2 years... Then I looked closer and found that they had used a nearly base model electric price, vs a much more specced out midsized car. The price difference was about $9500 over the standard price on the midsized car, for a total difference of $12000 instead of $3000. Even their 5-year projection doesn't show you saving that much with the electric.
