Private company ownership

Too little is known at this point but Tesla might well go private. I own some, am willing to hold for many years, but how does it work for me if they go private?

Has anyone been through this before? My guess is everyone truly gets bought out, at least in the past.

Re: Consistently over budget on food - what are you guys eating?

We rarely spend so little on food. Our non food items regularly get lumped in with food though. About 30% comes from eating out, generally lunches. Avoiding beef, eating out, and booze helps the bills be cheaper. I think of food as a fixed cost and do not budget for it. In other words, I just keep t...
