    and to paraphrase Chuck D...
    because it seems relevant

    If you are 25 and you dont have a lesson you
    can teach an 18 year old then you really have nothing to offer society.

    ahhh... trick question!

    No car is an 'investement' (save for really old models) because
    you aren't actually 'investing' in them. Simply an investement
    gives you a return on your money and most cars value drop by
    about a grand as soon as they drive off the lot.

    oops... I was acting very old right there.
