    Had the same thought, he shouldn't have known those details since he didn't live through them. The Loki that did was killed by Thanos.

    2021 White Sox draft selections and signings thread

    Yes, college seniors have always been low balled by orgs as they have no leverage anymore. Their choice is sign, or be blocked from the minors and go play independent ball for years (and make diddly there too).

    Market/Financial Thread

    Do you mean Schwab? I didn't like their trading platform at all. When I moved off of Robinhood I moved into Fidelity, I wanted a broker that wasn't relying upon another clearinghouse (etrade, which I used to use years back uses apex). Fidelity is a pretty stable platform, but like most brokers their tech still looks like it was created in the 90s. I'm still amazed that not one of the big players hasnt found a way to develop a better UI.

    Trust me, big Costco fan here and I've used their tire services a lot ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Wish they did more car services as well, would trust them over many other places.

    Automobile Thread

    When I was in HS, I took my car to a local oil change place and they sold me on it (helping with MPG, etc). $40 lesson right there. Funny thing, pretty sure I just topped them off down the road with an air compressor when at home anyways, so yea, really negated the whole thing. Parents gave me a good ribbing on that.

    Yea I really liked the exterior styling and the interior is well thought out. Ended up getting an SEL with convenience and premium pkgs, didn't think I would get that much in this purchase but the discount was too good to pass up, a version without those pkgs would have been thousands more.

    Tax Questions

    Yea doesnt seem too bad after I talked to them, have to send my Wisconsin tax return and then prove residency which is kind of a pain in the butt since it was a few years ago but doable.

    Saw Hyundai has a great incentive of $4250 and 1.9 interest rate for 2020 Santa Feโ€™s, found a somewhat local dealer with one discounted after being used as a loaner, so jumped on it. Got it for thousands less than what 2020 used models are going for.
