June 28, 2021
Welcome to the last week of June. As I write this we’re on our final day of vacation before starting our drive home tomorrow morning.
We started things off in Florida, enjoying the beach, the pool, and plenty of palm trees, and then traded all of that salt water and sand in for fresh water and mountains in Tennessee.
On Tuesday, both my wife and I will return to our normally scheduled programming at home.
Random shit I read on vacation
Apparently, a lot of damage has been done during the filming of the Fast & Furious films over the years.
Surprisingly, or maybe not, approximately 1,800 cars have been totaled thus far and that number will surely increase after a tally of the wreckage from the 9th Fast & Furious film are all added up.
Speaking of cars, who needs a ride?
Imagine pitching a business idea to friends, family and eventually potential investors that went against everything your parents ever told you: “If asked, never get in a car with a stranger. Instead, run to the nearest house and get help.”
Well, apparently parents, and millions of others around the world, have grown much more comfortable with strangers over the past few years.
Uber, the leading ride sharing company, had revenue of $11.1B in 2020 and is now, in addition to getting you to your destination, in the business of satisfying whatever your food cravings are by delivering everything from a Venti Latte to a 10 piece McNugget and large fry.
That’s it for this week. Talk again next Monday when, hopefully, I’ll be back in the rhythm of normal life.
