Turo shows a:
2021 Tesla Y for $99 daily,
2021 Hyundai Venue for $52 daily,
2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class for $108 daily,
2021 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid for $85 daily, and a
2021 Hundai Kona for $91 daily.

At least once I rented a car while visiting my sister.

I don't care about renting a luxury car, I would rent a Dodge Dart if one were available!

I cannot sort by price or specify a range, so this is what they show for $50 a day or less [sorted manually]:
2016 Hyundai Accent for $26
2013 Honda Civic for $30
2011 Ford Escape
2014 Chevrolet Cruze for $34
2020 Toyota Corolla for $35
2007 BMW Z4 for $37
2022 Kia Forte for $41
2022 Toyota Prius for $43
2017 Jaguar XE for $44

Maybe if I don't have an available vehicle when I need to drive to see clients I will see what is available on Turo, but it still doesn't help me with my current situation of wanting a vehicle with a functioning heater, starter, and transmission!

JR said that he would at least be making his car payment if he hadn't paid cash for his vehicles, but that bald know-it-all said to not buy cars to use with Turo unless you can pay cash.

Buy an Archie, put it on Turo, and let what Dave say be darnnnned?

What's Turo? Is that like Spotify?

FUV rental is a business model. But you'd know that if you followed Freelance Finance.

Question needs context.

I just watched one of my favorite channels, Dr. John Campbell. In today's post Official death figures, he has to waste 20 minutes asking the BBC to stop bad-mouthing him and respond to his messages. He's such a nice guy, and Youtube is such a sewer.

So.... All-cause deaths year over year is up 40%? or is that just Indiana? duckduckgo.com/?q=all+cause+deaths+up+40%25&ia=web

Linus Tech Tips and Mark Rober each bought their own warehouses

I am sure that I have missed many interesting videos because the titles are boring, but the thumbnail shows their new building: Mark Rober's title is more interesting, but I still didn't watch it for days:
Mark has some crazy stuff plus crazy projects from past videos.

Bob of I Like to Make Stuff bought a ranch a while ago.

JR sold his shops and is buying a new one.

He says that he turned a profit, but won't give information.
I am on my second video about it and all that he has said is that he won't give much information until everything is official, but it sounds like this place is 70 acres, 10 minutes from his current place, 2 minutes from his friend's new place, and has an old house and 5 old buildings.

He is selling his house, too.

He compared himself to Samcrack and joked about raising chickens and using stop leak.

I enjoyed some Samcrack videos, but there is altogether too much stop leak.

I stopped the second video less than halfway through because I have altogether too much to do today!

Is it dark yet? I need sunlight!

[I only watched this video because Mom was watching football]

He must have then - nobody on Youtube would lie or fake things for clicks.

He put a great deal of time and money into fixing it: The floor, roof, insulation, walls, lights, bathrooms, and heat, just to start.

I knew an architect who said there are people with more money than they know what to do with.

Maybe it's one of those cases where the easiest way to make a million dollars is to start with ten.

Crypto whale?
