No one has been able to tell me what's unique about the Peloton Tread that is different than any other treadmill. Don't let your kid stick their melon under a moving treadmill, period. Peloton explicitly warns to hide the key from your children, and keep children and pets away from it while it's in use. I'm a consumer protection attorney and even I can see the CPSC is overstepping here.

I don't own a Tread nor have I owned PTON.

Dunno, but I still find it funny that people pay the absurd amount of money for their equipment.

Yeah. my wife's Echelon bike that was $497 (and still probably somewhat overpriced) does exactly the same thing. It's quite literally a status symbol and nothing more.

TIL I need a Merrill brokerage account to exercise some stock options.

Guess who doesn't have a brokerage account?

Guess who's stock options hit an all time high today?

F me

Oooof. This is why I'm glad I bit the bullet last year and converted my ancient VG account to the brokerage account. I'd have missed out on a lot of money had I not done so.

Merrill Lynch. Their site is terrible and their email notifications are non-existent. Literally sitting here watching my account to see if my brokerage account opens before 4PM. I talked to a coworker in the same boat and he mentioned he opened his brokerage Monday morning and by Tuesday afternoon he was able to transact.

Like, I've had these for 5 years. Maybe a notification that my brokerage account was incomplete would've been nice?

My sister apparently ordered a Peloton tread, and they just canceled her order, so she's flying off the hinges on FB right now. :lol:

It literally doesn't.

You can pretend it does and save a lot of money, though.

GMs earnings gave them a 4% boost. I didn't look closely but from the blurb I read it wasn't significantly different than what F reported. This is stupid.

I was hung up on his semantics. "Literally" has meaning.
