Re: ERE as secular monasticism?

The question HB is posing is not whether you agree with not getting married and having children, the question is whether there is a parallel between those choosing not to get married and propagate within the context of 21st century ERE and those choosing such a decision within the context of Medieva...

Re: Investing for Collapse

Ironically, the first US immigration crisis in America was when Mexico invited US Southern citizens into Texas after they declared independence from Spain. It was soon overrun by Southerners who just continued their way of life. Mexico tried to fight back by limiting immigration and demanding that e...

Well, that certainly falls under "soon." Good luck. I don't have kids but my piece of advice would be to tell them "next month" when they start asking what day they were born. By the time they figure it out you'll have saved on at least one birthday.

Re: Investing for Collapse

Instead of hedging against collapse, maybe think of the benefits one might find in face of a collapse. Such as the revelation of one's true character as it could be viewed as an opportunity to confront one's true nature being that one is suddenly forced to adapt to extreme and unanticipated circumst...

Re: Investing for Collapse

I just don't think the "your money will grow 1000% in the stock market in 50 years!" advice is viable for someone my age, I consulted the forum to hopefully widen my understanding of investing.. Which is a wise calculus. If you read BSOG (Biggie Smalls Original Gangster a/k/a Black Son of Grey) one...

Re: Investing for Collapse

Gee whiz. You have already lived longer than most people did a mere millennial ago. Get laid, watch a Disney movie and if you still feel this way, buy a first aid kit, although I'm not sure exactly how that's going to help when the marauding gets underway. Good luck!!!

Re: Investments Trade Log

The fact that Disney is being impacted by Coronavirus is informative: it tells us Disney has a strong presence in China. So what's negative in the short run is positive in the long run. The main reason that movies are comic books or cartoons with unsophisticated dialogue is in order that they can ap...

Re: Should I be OK with my townhouse neighbor's Ring doorbell camera?

I understand you are a religious guy and you're probably trying to love your neighbor as best you can but if you lived with this guy during the Mosaic period he'd be peeking into your tents at night. You have to think of HOA as the fence that makes good town home neighbors. I never address problems ...

Re: Investments Trade Log

I started buying DIS in the mid 120's. It has come down since the initial spike caused by streaming launch. It's four businesses in one - merchandising/movies/theme parks/streaming. The only thing they can't do is gaming so they license it out. The capital costs of launching streaming plus Coronavir...

Re: Should I be OK with my townhouse neighbor's Ring doorbell camera?

I disagree. That stairwell is common area. He has no legal claim to surveil it and I would think your right to walk it without being surveilled comes under your right to quiet enjoyment. I would claim harassment. Fuck this douche. He's probably wacking it to your wife's ass. Or maybe your's. Go to y...

https://www.washingtonpost.com/technology/2020/02/18/ring-nest-surveillance-doorbell-camera/ My question: is your townhouse subject to a HOA? If you do have one, I would use them as a third party to mediate the situation. Some HOA's have amended their by-laws to prohibit cameras as they surveil comm...

Re: Lemur Journal!

I am a MF subscriber to one of their services so I have access to their boards. There is the famous "Saul's Board" where hard core investment analysis goes down.

Re: Investments Trade Log

I bought TTD as well. TTD and Roku are usually coupled together as the two cut the cord plays that are not actual streaming services. I don't own Roku. The person who runs the MF TTD board SWEARS by this stock. Believes it will be $1000 per share in not so distant future. I don't know what call opt...

@Jason Excellent call! Up 26.74% today. I wish I would have chosen that one for the call options I've been doing lately... I'm an investing genius.

I also don't have any interest in what you are trying to produce, but I can potentially save you a lot of time by giving you a highly opinionated take on what was really going on with the Keebler elves in that tree.

There needs to be more generations represented. 2+ trees each with 4+ generations and 50+ people in each tree would be a good place to start but that is going to be tough.
What about these guys.

Re: the animal's journal

My wife was selling organic products a few years back and one of her offerings was a dry dog shampoo. She had a few regular customers in Alaska who owned Wooly Malamutes. Just throwing it on and brushing it off their coats offered maintenance between full blown baths. That is a cute ass doggie. Look...

Re: Investments Trade Log

I'm sold. Bought my first SPCE stake @ $23.66. I hate space more than Facebook but now I own both. Hopefully they can do better than Boeing and keep their shit up in the air.
