Trade the $200 Amazon voucher for $175 cash.

Put that $175 on the Colts beating the Texans on Saturday.

Easy.

Who nex?
Interestingly I was considering trading it for $194 Walmart vouchers. Walmart online is fuckin' brilliant (it hosts resellers too) and usually cheaper than Amazon. Not always, but very often and some of the things I want are cheaper enough to offset the $6 I'd lose. It's just the hassle/risk of doing something I've never done before.

Colts aint beating the Texans either, mate.

:lol:

I've been sitting watching this thinking about you, ffs.

Great shout, man. I thought the Texans would stroll this, just pass rushing fuck oot Luck but it's the opposite. Colts look like they'll score on every drive.
I went big on the Colts. They have been in immense form on both sides of the ball the past 9 weeks or so. I genuinely believe they have a shot at making the superbowl if injuries don't become an issue.

I hope they do, man. Fun to watch. I had Luck and TY on my fantasy team. I just think they're capable of playing pure shit at times.

Looks nice, what is it?
A basic car that he’s paid a deposit on now but can’t have for nearly a year. Not a bad car, tbh, but that’s the sort of wait time you’d expect on a hand built, customised, Swarovski crystal encrusted super car :patsch

@plankton I hope you negotiated in a drive car off of their used car lot in the deal?

A Skoda Karoq. It's comparable with the VW Tiguan. I could get a better deal on the Tiguan but there are just a bunch of details and options I like better on the Karoq. I got 5% of the list price which was what I expected from a car that had such a long wait list. I could have also have gotten a Karoq already at a dealer but I'm 45 and this is my first car, so I wanted it exactly to my specifications and not filled with all the options I don't care about. Don't care about resale value either since I plan on keeping this one until it's not worth to keep running anymore.

Both the car and that particular engine are in demand, so that's why I have to wait 7 months. It's been fluctuating from 3 to 12 months. I might get lucky and get some production time ahead of time. I don't really need a car but I want one now. I'm 45 yrs now and I've have been using my bike and public transportation until now. This car is exactly what I want for the next 10-12 yrs and it covers all my wants and possible needs I can imagine. So unless I suddenly father triplets and need to drive them around all at once I should be good.

I remember when the Mazda 121 was released around ‘92 and the Astina 323 a year or two later, they were both so popular here that demand greatly outstripped supply and the waiting lists were so long that second hand ones were selling for a good deal more than new full list price, I was working in the car industry at the time and traded an 18 month old 121 with more than 20k on the clock for two grand more than new list price, it was madness. My girlfriend at the time wanted an Astina 323, her step dad also worked in the car trade and got her the car for cost but the trade off was about a nine month wait...all that for a mass produced shitbox, I’m afraid I don’t understand it.

The only thing I would wait 7 months or more for is a child, and that's only because you have to.

I preferred my car in a slightly different colour but when they told me I could have a similar colour right now, or wait 3 to 4 months for the other colour, there was no fucking way I was waiting.

What a weird season it's been. 1-5 to start off, 10-1 since then. And the one loss in the last three months, they got shut out 6-0 by the fucking Jaguars. :lol:

Luck and TY can basically read each other's minds at this point. But yes, the Colts are fully capable of playing absolute shit. Well capable.

I wouldn't go that far. There were a number of missed passes in Hilton's direction. Looks like they weren't even on the same wavelength.

Marlon Mack looked really good again. He's a very adaptable back.

Hmmmmm.... I was fast asleep when this game was on, but for most of the season he's been hitting Hilton for a third down conversion like its a given.
