    Coming 2 America was....not good. It's not Caddyshack 2 or Blues Brothers 2000 bad but it was still pretty bad. Lots of funny and talented actors in the cast but the writing and story were just not entertaining.

    Just got first Moderna shot today. Arm feels about the same as after a flu shot. It's the second shot that I'm worried about. Everyone I know who has had the second shot of either Pfizer or Modena has had a rough go of it. The worst seems to kick in the night of and day after the second shot.

    Automobile Thread

    Look for a used engine on ebay that comes with a decent warranty or try car-part.com to see if a local salvage yard has one available. Then try to find a mechanic to install it (craigslist or facebook). If you can get the engine and installation for less than $2k then it might be worth it. Also try to find a dedicated Vibe forum. A place like that would be a great resource to see if it is worth it or not.

    I hope they develop a reasonably priced self driving electric RV in my lifetime! Imagine going to bed in your RV and waking up at your destination.

    Jerry Reinsdorf is cheap

    Article in today's Trib about the purchase. Pretty interesting stuff. JR originally put up one million of his own money and now the team is worth $1.65 billion. https://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/white-sox/ct-chicago-white-sox-jerry-reinsdorf-sale-40th-anniversary-20210129-smniowquojgg5kdhviqfhfbn2a-story.html

    Not a movie but Raised by Wolves on HBOMax is excellent...confusing...but excellent. Ridley Scott directed the first two episodes and the series definitely has his vibe even though someone else created it.

    2020 Election Thoughts

    From what I understand they can impeach him even after his term is over and then pass a resolution forbidding him from running for federal office ever again which should be tempting for republican senators eyeing a 2024 presidential run.

    2020 Celebrity Death Thread

    Throat cancer. I saw them with David Lee Roth in Tinley Park in 2015. It was a great show and I thought for sure they would at least tour every couple of years especially since his son joined the band but then he was diagnosed with cancer and it kept getting worse.

    Market/Financial Thread

    Buyer realtor's became a lot less useful when the MLS was made available to everyone on the web. If I'm thinking of moving then I can go to realtor.com and get almost all the info that I need to know about a possible purchase even if it is in a different state. I would still need to go to the see the house in person and get an inspection but there is not much else a realtor could do for me especially if I'm pre-qualified. That said a buyers realtor did help when we sold our last house FSBO. We had almost completed the whole process without using a realtor (paid $250 to get it listed on the MLS) but it was a 110 year old house and failed the inspection so the original buyers backed out. We made the necessary repairs and put it back on the MLS with a 2.5% buyers realtor commission. It sold within a week at full price and the buyers realtor totally greased the wheels to get the buyers onboard including getting them to lower the price on their contingency sale condo. I live in the burbs now and within the past few years two of my neighbors sold FSBO. They both paid a small fee to get on the MLS. Neither of the buyers used a realtor. One buyer found their house on realtor.com and other found their house by driving around neighborhoods and saw the For Sale sign. Seller agents are best used when you want a hands off approach and lots of guidance. If not then there is not much to selling a house to a qualified buyer. There are also plenty of discount realtors like these guys who I would probably use if I was selling my house: https://lincolnwayrealty.com/#
