  1. It is amazing how people can reach that age and still look so happy and youthful. Thanks for sharing!
  2. Great find! I can't find any in California for under $24/bottle!
  3. You can find this gem for under $30 USD. It is Sassicaia's little sibling and hits above the $30 price point in my opinion.
  4. Beautiful! I am tempted to pick up a box now...
  5. Such an amazing thing to see. It is a time capsule of our hobby!
  6. GM and Michelin will bring airless tires to passenger cars by 2024 They'll test the tires on Bolt EVs later in 2019. Jon Fingas, @jonfingas 06.04.19 in Transportation 125Comments 12003Shares Steve Fecht for General Motors Airless tires for everyday cars might soon be far more practical. GM and Michelin have unveiled a prototype of Uptis (Unique Puncture-proof Tire System), a Michelin-made tire intended for passenger cars. It looks like Tweel and other air-free concepts of years past, but its mix of composite rubber and resin embedded fiberglass lets it operate at highway speeds -- earlier options tend to work only when you're slowly putting around. It's not as visually appealing as conventional tires, but Michelin claims it's just as comfortable. More importantly, there's a tangible roadmap. GM will start testing the Uptis in Michigan later in 2019 on a fleet of Chevy Bolts, and expects the finished version to reach production cars as soon as 2024. The automaker hasn't named specific car models that will use the new tires. The Uptis should have immediate financial and safety benefits. While it won't be completely invulnerable, blowouts, flat tires and irregular wear would be things of the past. However, GM and Michelin see this as particularly important for a future where electric and self-driving cars are commonplace. Airless tech reduces the need for environmentally harmful tire production, and eliminates the need for a spare tire that adds weight and shrinks fuel economy. They'd also help autonomous vehicles drive around the clock without fear that a stray nail will ruin a trip. Don't be shocked if this becomes the norm, if just because the expectations for cars themselves will have changed.
  7. I agree. All great marcas so just look for the best quality ones.
  8. To my palate aged cigars become exceptionally smooth and silky where young cigars have a bit of a roughness and power to their flavor/texture. I wouldn't necessarily say aged cigars turn flat but it is rather a different experience overall. The beauty of our hobby is we usually have access to both depending on our mood! I compare this a lot to drinking the same wine but different vintages. You can really tell a difference when you taste them side by side! I just tasted a 2014 and 2016 Cabernet Franc from a small vintner. The 2016 was very lean and light on the palate where the 2014 was a full body well rounded flavor. The taste was almost as if I was drinking a completely different wine! However at the end of the tasting I thought to myself that one isn't necessarily better than the other but made for different occasions. I'll drink the 2016 now and the 2014 will age wonderfully in my wine cooler.
  9. I wonder how much market "research" went into choosing the right gauge...
