@Noah121 the "missed your calling" question should be interpreted as: If you weren't doing what you've chosen for a career and could choose anything else you have a passion for, what would it be?

 

And it doesn't have to be realistic. For example, someone might say "Professional Bass Fisherman" if they simply enjoy the hell out of fishing even if they're not particularly skilled at it. Is there something you have a passion for outside of work? If so, what is it? That's your missed calling.

 

P.S. Do not even try to claim you missed your calling as a Chippendale Dancer. That is simply not going to fly with this crowd. We've all seen you dance.

Currency is only as strong as the reserve system backing it.  Hence why when America prints dollars no one bats an eye, but Venezuela does it and all of a sudden people are bartering their internal organs in the streets.  Bitcoin feels more like Venezuela then America to me.  I'll keep my investments far away.

Fun fact. Whenever you're venturing out to the Northeast and are looking to try some local wine, try some from the "Outer Coastal Plain AVA".

 

It's great branding. Because the "Outer Coastal Plain" wine is actually New Jersey wine, which sounds much more awful. But they've actually done well against some worldwide wines in blind taste tests.

"Build It and they will Come!"

 

It's downright amazing what strides are being made in wine-making.  New AVA's are sprouting up everywhere.

 

Not too long ago wines from Paso Robles (CA) were consistently on the 'rough' side.  Then Oregon & Washington State; now all producing renown wines. 

 

My niece took us to a winery in Alabama a couple of years ago (pre-covid) that was surprisingly good.
