The sidewalls have a pattern that looks like the Michelin Tweel, which was an experiment in airless tires (supported by elastic rubber instead of compressed air), except instead of being a surface pattern there were holes that went all the way through the tire. It was not a smashing success, though it did find some use for things like ride-on lawnmowers and construction vehicles.

Think it was NatGeo that tracked a kilo of raw opium from Afghanistan to New York. From $10 to $15,000 plus by the time I hit the street

On a long term basis, I'd reckon RCs are cheaper.

Well, it's definitely expensive here (well over a $100 per gram), it may be cheaper in Berlin...

A kilo of opium is enough to keep a person stoned for a very long time, though.

I'm not seriously suggesting anyone should do drugs, but from a purely financial perspective I'm still pretty sure it's cheaper than the RC hobby for the purposes of keeping your lizard-brain quiet and content.

In your part of the world, possessing narcotics is grounds for the death penalty -- sometimes even if you have a prescription for them. That kind of severe personal risk requires drug dealers to bribe a lot more police to leave them alone, and bribes are expensive.

On a completely different note, the "keto" diet has been mentioned here a few times in the past, and apparently by its very nature it causes damage to your immune system from malnutrition: https://nypost.com/2022/01/11/jenna-...arre-symptoms/. Something to keep in mind.

Shorter life span.

Thing is as addition grows itís not hard to develop a $100/200+ plus day habit. Even in the RC world thatís hard to maintain

So it turns out Chico, CA is only about 3 hours north of me. That's where Amain hobbies is.


Also, Amain's track complex is $25/month for your own personal key card access. That's insanely cheap. Around here it's $25/day for practice.

In other news, in Illinois apparently you now print your medical cards from home. That doesn't seem questionable.


I printed mine out full page so it's giant sized, but wasn't as funny as i thought it would be.
