Re: Smuggling Gold

If you're using mules and not doing the smuggling yourself...
And... your mules aren't caught more than 1 out of 6, and you're paying them almost nothing... it is better not to pay the tax.

Business 101 :)

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

New Zealand yesterday. No masks or social distancing required. That could be because their nation seems to be largely free from this breed of animal that dominates the American landscape Or because they have the most fierce border closure on the planet. The New Zealand border is currently closed to...

Re: Daily "Check In" Thread For Us

I'm actually a fan of various "little luxuries" like that, provided they're not so frequent that they break the bank. I think about it in terms of the "80/20 rule" -- 80% of your monthly expenses come from 20% of your transactions. If you control costs on that top 20% (things like mortgage/rent and...

Re: Daily "Check In" Thread For Us

Thanks Mark. Wife and I are talking about having a winter home and then using AirBnB for long term summer stays near family. I have no idea how impractical that might be. We'd store some belongings nearby, but I think it's going to be a crapshoot to find a suitable place to spend a month or three. ...

Portfolio Charts New Shortcode Feature

Thank you Tyler for a great new feature . Well thought out and handy. Quick question: Is there any reason that Shortcodes don't work when the portfolio allocation is over 100%? The rest of the site works just fine when I simulate using leveraged ETF's by upping the allocation percentages. Cheers, an...

Thank you Sophie. I woke up this morning with the realization I had seen something wrong on the internet last night, and needed to fix it today. But you beat me to it! :)

You probably think I'm kidding.

Re: Daily "Check In" Thread For Us

Mark, do you mostly use AirBnB? At how many weeks or months duration does a booking become impractical and hard to get? I use hotels if I'm only going to be somewhere for a day or three. Much more than that and I usually use AirBnB. I don't book more than a month anywhere, but sometimes I've extend...

Re: Daily "Check In" Thread For Us

I'm in Golden Colorado for the rest of the week. What a beautiful town. The mask culture is fierce here. I visited Buffalo Bill’s grave today. I don’t think he would have fit in well in today’s Colorado. The town has a sweet smell of hops wherever you walk, so I thought there must be a ton of microb...

Not real??!!! It is linked to their web site?!! http://www.wfac-gym.com/files/wfac_wav.pdf Vinny It's real. I must have misunderstood the confusion. What is the disconnect that you found?

From having twice read his Starting Strength book the above is NOT what I'd have expected to read!

It's okay, Vinny. We know your sarcasm meter is broken. I don't have an ear for music. It's all good.

Re: Daily "Check In" Thread For Us

For all of the Lifters on the forum... I passed through Wichita Falls, TX early this morning. I had to stop by Mark Rippetoe's gym and get a photo. WFAC.jpeg For those that haven't read it, here's the waiver you have to initial and sign to squat at Rip's gym. ALL MEMBERS/GUESTS OF WICHITA FALLS ATHL...
