Yerba Mate

I drink Yerba Mate whenever I absolutely need something to keep my mind alert (my parents love and drink this stuff daily, a seemingly commonly held behavior in Argentina and many other Mate loving South American Countries): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mate_(beverage) Just like coffee, all you nee...

Re: $$$ for your firearms

If you tune into the Investigation Discovery channel, you can watch an unending marathon of murder porn before finally seeing an interview of Pamela Smart.

Let’s make sure the criminal gets her hair and makeup done before giving her even more camera time that she earned by being reprehensible.

Re: $$$ for your firearms

Anyway, has anyone ever changed their mind thanks to any of the previous gun threads on these boards? Maybe it could be agreed upon that the media should stop glorifying the shooter by putting his name and picture everywhere. In a world of Instagram and YouTube where everyone wants to be famous, st...

Re: Generation-X' Journal

I am well, the RV is not being used currently as a work change to a less remote location made staying with friends and family more economical. I did not find any dead mice come spring time, which is fortunate. I have debated selling it but I have not needed the money and I cannot be certain I won’t ...

Re: Warning: WH seeks to limit/deport immigrants using ACA and other gov. services

I was on a date recently and the woman brought up abortion criminalization legislation and was expressing indignation. She pressed for my opinion and I told her that it seemed highly unlikely to me that Christian conservatives could ever be convinced that abortion is not unethical, while it also se...

Re: Warren Buffett

In the first sentence of my reply I acknowledged that it was perhaps gratuitous. Hence my posting in this thread instead. My perception of Buffett and Dalio means I take what they say with at least a grain if not a half shaker of salt, and not as gospel. I would imagine I would invest differently if...

Re: investing in ETF

And you can talk about better and sophisticated ways of investing, but the masses are not capable of that. That's the whole point. That's why they have this 101 stuff and sometimes just staying in 101 is better than moving onto 201 when you are only capable of understanding a portion of it. That’s ...

Re: Warren Buffett

Mister Imperceptible, I don't see the dishonesty in them because I don't see where what they speak is inconsistent (to my mind it isn't). Could you further explain it? I mean, at least Ray Dalio that I know has discussed at length the debt cycle/deleveraging and the roles central banks and governme...

Re: investing in ETF

I know we have discussed this elsewhere including the thread I started regarding Buffett, I did read his biography, and I think where we disagree is that Buffett’s advice for the masses is questionable considering he has no alternative to saying what he is saying. Buffett is so big at this point th...

Did you speak with that representative of the other company about an opportunity with them? Why not? Are you afraid that someone at your existing company will find out? Do it NOW and if I get to Poland you will owe me a pierogi. Didn’t you know this is a numbers game? Ask for a million euros from 10...

Re: investing in ETF

Warren Buffet instructed his financial advisors to put his wife's money in index funds. I think it’s important to observe that Buffett’s wife will have so much money that she cannot play in smaller markets without buying whole companies, so 90% into an S&P 500 fund is the one of the only autopilot ...
