    They always forget to mention a base Rio OTD will be $22k to $23k while a top trim SE Mirage OTD price is $19k on avg.

    I don't got me no opiods. There's some booze in the house that the brother-in-law brought a couple weekends ago. I ain't touched it. I don't much like alcohol. It tastes like scuzz pond water that was then used to wash a hippo's anus, then bottled. Before I feel drunk I feel pressure building in my head and my body automagically stops wanting any more alcohol, and the few times I have felt an effect, the after effect, when the effect is going away, felt worse than the good effect. Why would I pay for that. I could never be an alcoholic, it's too much torture.

    As for opiods, I've taken a pill or two recovering from an injury. They were delicious.

    As for the natural green stuff. I wouldn't know where to find it, never tried it. I might be too scared to. Don't even know if I could smoke it without getting too choked up. I tried to smoke one of my dad's cigarettes when I was a kid (one time only), and it tore my throat all to hell. Twas a good lesson.

    That's why you just eat it, gummy bears and the like. Florida is about to legalize it so it won't be that hard to find lol.

    I may be about to go to Florida. But only to buy something (maybe). And it's not green.

    Ditto on the drinking. Yuck, unless it's scotch. Weird I know.

    After cancer surgery where I was opened from throat to groin they made sure I felt no pain with fentanyl. Oh boy! I see why people make it their mistress. I see why it can take over your life. But but but all opiods are based on the poppy plant! (true) and are natural

    This reminds me of the Mirage vs Spark conversation people were having about ten years ago. Yes, the Spark may be a bit more refined, but that refinement comes at the cost of some reliability and longevity.

    Same would seem to be true with the Mirage vs Rio today. Do I think I could get the same 218,000 miles out of a Rio that I got out of my Mirage?

    No.

    Wait? Got? As in past tense? Did I miss something? Or have I just forgotten?
