Apparently he's either not reading this thread or is ignoring us. Heavyweight, are you there?

That's pretty expensive. When I went to China (Zhuhai), the lady said US$5 per hour so I gave her a twenty and said wake me up in 4 hours. For the five bucks, you also get a nice plate of vegetables like cherry tomatoes and even a bowl of ramen if you want. I gave the food to the masseuse. Felt bad for her working half the day on me.

BTW, to work at a Hooters, don't you have to have... ummm... Hooters?

I had massages in China too, but not for $5/hr! That's pretty crazy.

This one was better than I've had in China though, so it was work the money.

It was not a fancy big boulevard store, but one of those in the marketplace for "locals" or something and the people working there were blind so they had better sensitivity on the fingertips or so the marketing strategy says.

Today in Boston was a perfect sunny day out 64 Anyway as i was driving slowly in Welelsley center saw few kids making that truck honk motion and screaming something (couldn't make out). So i revved my engine couple of times and they liked it Just love putting a smile on kids faces.

A guy pulled up next to me and asked me the usual question what type of car is that. And i always respond "Lotus Elise" not like you other guys just say "Lotus." I don't know i just feel like they need to know both the make and model. Doesnt seem to hurt. Then he was like very sweet ride.

I've seriously never received a negative comment since i first got the Elise in 05. All positive comments. Must be the locations

My first question was going to be if they were blind - that's a legitimacy test for a Chinese massage. I think its part of the "to each according to his ability" part of communism. But they give a damn good massage and are surprisingly good teachers considering we had no common language when I was being taught. Avoid the face massage though! They get violent around the eyes - not a joke on them being blind, they forcefully press up and into the forehead extending over the eyes via your eye socket.

All I said was I love Italian sports cars to.

No... it's FROM each according to his ability... which means, the more you earn from your ability, the more you have to give to central government. The other part is TO each according to his need, so they redistribute to those they deem in need, whether or not they earn it.

The blind massage is actually a great example of capitalism that they exploited the market for their talent, which is more sensitivity to the touch and there is a market for their services.

Thanks for correcting me. Was trying to type on phone before battery died while lotus site kept freezing and didn't proof read. Hate looking like an idiot.

But I think it exemplifies both ideologies insofar as it enables and forces those who otherwise lack the ability to contribute to work and simultaneously shows what you described. Because many others have other abilities they are prohibited from practicing massage to allow for the blind to work to the best of their ability in a touch-based industry. But let's not get political here

Socialism versus capitalism is not political unless you make it that way. It's a war of economic principles, which have great implications on how people live.

The reason being... given the choice, no free man would voluntarily choose socialism without seeing some type of gain, such as being the leader of the socialist regime, which then allows him/her to live like a capitalist, which in turn, pretty much means, the top socialists, are in fact, capitalists, exploiting the situation for their own gain.

I think the best comments I get now are asking how my car handles in the snow. It's cute how everyone thinks my car will be leaving the garage to face Chicago winter.

Another great drive yesterday. Got a lot of attention and asked they usual questions...blah blah... But one person knew his cars since he knew what it was (had smile on my face).

Interesting and funny comment i had at a Starbucks drive-thru. Some employees noticed it and were like "nice set of wheels you got there." "Thanks"

One employee says: "You must get a lot chicks in that car. Have you ever tried getting it on with her in the car? (sarcastic joke and

Me: "Hmmmm.... Could work because of my height and some girls i see are usually my height one or two inches smaller than my height."

Got my coffee revved a few times and drove off.

I had several in my month of owning it. But here's 2 recent ones.

- Parking at my sister school picking her up, a kid (14) walk by with his friend and said "Nice Rhino!" Give me a thumbs up while taking a picture.

Rhino?????

And here's one from 2 minutes ago

- Parked behind my store and work and they're having a party for employee at frys in the back parking lot. Walked out to my car to get stuff and manager / owner of that Frys walked up and talked to me. Asked me if it was the Esprit, and if it had 500 hp. Fun guy =)

Ran into my buddy the other day on the road. I was in my Noble and he was in his Exige. We pulled over in front of a yogurt shop to chat. We were there for a little bit and we got non-stop comments and questions....

Older lady: How old are you guys? You look too young to drive these cars.
Me: I'm very old, older than you think. The other guy is... 29?
Her Husband: What are these? Fast? I have an El Camino bored to 450hp but these things make my car seem slow.
Older lady: Who owns which one? How much? Oh, I love this one (points to Exige). This one is so cute. It's more cute. Sorry (to me)
Her Husband: C'mon, let's go.
Older lady: I really like this one. Just love the way it looks. (stares at Exige)
Her Husband: Hey, let's go!

Dad: What are these cars?
Me: That's a Lotus, this is a Noble.
Kid: I've heard of Lotus, never heard of Noble.
Dad: Never even seen a Noble...
Me: You guys probably won't see another one either. They're pretty rare.
Dad: Can we take pictures?
Me: You bet.
Kid: I don't want to take pictures! (acting shy)
Dad: GET OVER THERE AND STAND NEXT TO THE CARS!
Kid: (standing next to car) Hurry! You got the camera wrong! I'll do it myself!
Dad: STAND STILL!
(After the power struggle is done over pictures, kid comes back)
Kid: How old are you guys?
Me: That guy is 19, I'm old enough. You have any older sisters you can introduce to him?
Kid: No.
Me: Stay in school. Study hard. Buy one of these for yourself.

Another older lady (AOL): Wow. Ferrari?
Me: No. Lotus. Noble.
AOL: Where from?
Me: England.
AOL: No wonder. Never seen before. So pretty.

Then there was this one younger dude in his 20's walking by, saw our cars, and made a beeline to them, made 2 complete circles around both cars, inspecting every detail, getting very close to every edge, and smoking the whole time. Didn't look at us, didn't try to talk to us. Just nodded to himself every few seconds. Then walked away nodding like he gained some deeper understanding into the universe.

Was in downtown Austin for the F1 fan fest in my buddies 335. Spotted a guy in a yellow 05 Elise next to us at the light. I decided to mess with him a bit and asked if it was a lambo. He said no Lotus and I said "is that like a Ferrari?"

Haha sorry if you're on the board I just wanted to have some fun.
