    Was talking to my boss about that a while back. He said that if he gets challenged, he can not make a case for us to keep our DT office space that the team transitioned so seamlessly to WFH that there were literally zero hiccups. Plus side to that for me is, he would have a hard time telling me I can't work on vacation in Vegas or really any place with an internet connection. I guess that goes both ways though lol
    We already lost out spots in the office, transitioned to full time work from home a few weeks back. Same deal, worked so well from home, that they couldn't justify keeping out office spaces. Even gave us money to outfit a home office and all that. Someone brought up the fact that we could technically work anywhere, but there are tax implications with that, as well as visa implications technically, but not like anyone will know. We had a new work from home contract to sign that basically says we will work in Alberta.

    I learned that our government in Alberta blows more than I ever imagined.

    1. Don't EVER take your health for granted, no matter how old you are.
    2. Don't EVER adopt a 3rd dog, if you ever have to move into anything other than a house, you are going to get FUCKED (in our case, moving to BC, houses are too expensive, and condos/townhouses, even trailer parks cap the dog limit at 2)

    A fun car is needed in my life, went without one for 4 years and was bored. Thanks to Covid, people offloading their toys and dealerships hungry for sales I made the move. Hopefully this pandemic bullshit settles down and autocross restarts again.

    Do not, I repeat, do -not-, go grocery shopping at a big box supermarket on NYE if you don't absolutely need to.

    Crows and Magpies get hyper aggressive when there are no restaurant or street food vendors to scavenge scraps off of.

    This. Interior, paint and general fit and finish is typical GM cheap stuff. The engine, trans and chassis is on-par if not better than my older E9X M3s. Both sound fantastic in their own way. I plan on keeping this one for a while, with a bit of luck I’ll be on VanIsland within 4-5 years where road quality isn’t an issue.

    I learned that when Honda dealers go under, there are no blowout savings for me to scavenge.

    Wrong thread. You need the vehicle interior debate mega thread.

    SS. The ZL1 is out of my price range and I can't imagine hooking up another 200hp on the street.

    9.5ishL/100km on flat highway. Fuel economy isn't a concern with minimal driving I do.
