There’s never enough B in my BLT, but the problem isn’t solved by simply adding more bacon. It’s the size, thickness, and shape. The bacon strips are thin and insubstantial; they never quite scratch that chunky, meat patty itch. Luckily, this is a problem that can be solved with a waffle iron and a plan.

Needless to say, if you can afford a $3 million, track-focused hypercar, you can afford its absurdly expensive maintenance. Still, actually seeing the numbers in front of our commoner eyes can be quite shocking. In addition to its multi-million dollar price tag, there's a service bulletin floating around Facebook claiming that the Aston Martin Valkyrie will apparently cost its owners about $464,000 to service over the course of just three years.
