Re: White supremacy run amok

I was thinking polite.

Whatever. You and everyone else who's overreacting can carry on with your forum-clearing rant. I have a plane to catch.

Re: White supremacy run amok

I would if I thought it was worthy of this forum. You only drop by when you have something to get off your chest, stirring up bad feelings in the process, and then disappear again. Some would consider that trolling. I don't think SW is the only one out of line here. Recent history shows that emotion...

Re: We only have 120 Trillion Years Left!

Yeah, to my mind, religion addresses this issue rather neatly. It gives us a sense that some part of us will continue on eternally, even if the 'us' is only in the 'we humans' sense and not on an individual level. Most religions also include some form of transformative point which allows for our ess...

@Seppia -- Is that just table salt or something like sea salt or kosher salt? Do you keep it in a closed or open container? In the fridge or cupboard?

Sorry for the questions ... it looks delicious and I want to try it.

Re: Entering Ketosis

I think 20g is a good place to start to make sure you get deep into ketosis. When I'm running I can do up to 45g and stay deep. It also depends on what you're eating. I'd stay off of nuts if you can until you're through the flu. I also keep the net carb number lower when I eat berries or nuts but le...

@RJ--They are definitely drafting the order ('he wants to sign something '). DoD is subtly communicating that they won't follow it in an attempt to get the administration to back off. I can't see Trump backing down without good reason (meaning getting something in return). Maybe he'll end up trading...

Re: First paycheck - You won't BELIEVE the taxes! Tax optimization?

My only advice is to get into the habit now of maintaining all your records as you go. I keep a separate tax file where I copy things I might need and make notations so I remember why I kept them. I'd also suggest keeping medical and dental records/receipts. The threshold for deducting them is prett...

Re: The Career Risk Traders Are Unaware Of.

One of the biggest problems isn't losing money and then having to win it back at twice the price. The problem is dry spells. You don't ever want to feel compelled to trade. That means you'll have dry spells. Sometimes loooooong dry spells. Sitting those out can be harder than avoiding panic selling....
