    In my early 20's, my friend worked at a car dealership. I went there and 100% financed a Corvette (I know....guido) and used to make the payments on a credit card. After 3 months, I parked it in a bad neighborhood in Brooklyn after a party, woke up the next morning and it was gone. It was stolen and never recovered. Insurance paid for it.

    Worked out fine in the end because I had banged it up a bit and a friend of mine accidentally put a bullet hole in it too :c

    I worked for netscape, one of the first people in. They gave stock away like it was candy. When AOL bought them out they tried buying stock from the employees. I held on. You have no idea how much that was.

    These guys liked to carry. We were drunk and he was showing me his new 9 and put a round in the quarter-panel :grr:

    After that, the car was a magnet for every door in the city.

    Enough that I planned to be retired and living like a king right now. Now any stock I or my wife gets is cashed and put in other ventures as soon as it vests
