Re: Omar accused of treasonous plot with Qatar

How is it that an apologist for a culture that claims the right to dismember a woman's genitalia against her will ends up in this position to begin with? Mutilating penii is part of the American culture, but lots of males are politicians. I'm not sure what argument this point advances, but surely y...

Re: Stock scream room

I guess different people handle it differently, right? You raise an interesting question. If the vp is “money you can afford to lose” (Harry’s words) do you replenish that once you lose it? But when you say “you would only add-non-investment income to the VP”, it’s still money that could have been ...

BTW I like hearing what Shiller has to say too. You can watch some of his Financial Markets lectures online.

Re: Stock scream room

20% VP means you keep adding to it if it goes down. That's correct. If you're using HB's method, you don't keep a certain percentage of your wealth in the VP bucket. Otherwise, it's just another leg of the PP. You have to keep them separate, and only rebalance within each bucket. So you would only ...

Re: Service economy inspires crappy design

I'm guessing that the lack of ease in home maintenance is a trade off the car companies make in order to achieve optimized aerodynamics and weight. That would help explain why back when people worked on their own cars, they were landboats. And some of those landboats looked really cool! No doubt. A...

Re: Pizza Drones

Yemen's Houthi rebels launched drone attacks on the world's largest oil processing facility in Saudi Arabia and a major oil field Saturday, sparking huge fires and halting about half of the supplies from the world's largest exporter of oil.

Re: Service economy inspires crappy design

So Ive recently taken to start working on my own vehicle ( a beater that I decided to fix up)..and I'm shocked at how awful cars are designed when it comes to making repairs easy. Parts that engineers know will need servicing are buried under other parts which often necessitates hours of labor to r...
