  1. Wow that looks like a cozy house. Congrats.
     
  2. That's a sweet house, Mr hipster. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
     
  3. wow thats a #$%#ing castle! congrats.
     
  4. Yes please.

    How much did you pay for it?
     
  5. thats so irrelevant

    depending on where it is, it could be from 200K to 1.5M
     
  6. Man, NB is the coolest.
     
  7. That's a beautiful house.

    I like those style houses nestled within woods.

    Do that in Australia and your house has a twenty trillion higher percent chance of burning down.
     
  8. Yes, now spit on us and call us scum.

    Seriously though, nb has done well enough for himself without the ego stroking. What has it ever bought any of you.
     
  9. What is your problem?
     
  10. House/penis envy
     
  11. Fun fact: my Bigelow Number is no greater than six.
     
  12. Pretty slick digs. I'm still trying to figure out what I'll be doing after this degree is over. Have a few open offers for postdoc positions, but the prospect of not being poor is also attractive.
     
  13. House prices could vary by location? You don't say...

    Which is why I asked the price of that particular house.


     
  14. I must admit I'm slightly giggling picturing your 80s camaro parked in that driveway
     
  15. Very nice and congrats on the wife-to-be!
     
  16. Can't wait till burner stops in and tells us how much that house would cost in Australia
     
  17. And in doing so, telling us (again) how much his place cost.
     
  18. lih
     
  19. gotta be at least 5 million in a good suburb, with easy access to good schools and the most profitable bar in the world.
     
  20. what are you
    a millionaire

    great house
    how you like portland
    i wanna move to Oregon to escape bay area cost of living and because I think its pretty
     
  21. I was always most envious of NB's jawline. Every time Veyronman asked for 100x100 pics for the members collage I'd be reminded. Now I'm looking at his house and the tears won't stop.
     
  22. Hey, thanks for all the well-wishes!

    To answer your questions:
    Portland is solid. It's Seattle's little brother so it's been a pretty easy transition. I recommend it.

    The house is nice, but there's this room in the back of the garage that ALWAYS smells like farts. Trying to track that down.

    Not a millionaire. Portland is cheaper than the bay area. For now.
     
  23. I'm afraid I sold it about a year ago. She was tons of fun, but entirely impractical. She got like 6 MPG and burned super premium. But, I got all the electrical systems working and stabilized all the rust spots, etc. and sold her to a guy who takes on a car restoration project every year or so.

    He didn't waste any time, either. I saw it about six months later coming out of a parking lot. Same plates, same color and he kept the original decals (which was a big selling point for him), but it was super #$%#ing clean. Whole body had been re-done and the exhaust system was way quieter and the engine running way smoother. It was getting close to needing its injectors replaced and I'm pretty she he had done that at a minimum. Looked and sounded better than new, which made me really happy.
     
  24. Industry is nice so far. But it's industry, so the whole focus is different. Having weekends is a plus, and the benefits are good. We have one of those super space age soda machines that can make like 10,000 flavors of soda which is free. And free fruit. So yeah, do consider industry.

    How long until the degree is finished?
     
  25. The Portland housing market is fairly warm, but not screaming along like Seattle's is (or SF, for that matter), so it wasn't too bad. I paid just a hint under 3.2 Billion Australian Dollars for it.
