Re: US gun classifications explained. Funny, true, and sad.

The Ruger 10/22 is favored by Israeli military snipers. They used the standard one (10 round capacity, I Shrugged), but it looks like they've upgraded to a higher capacity version.

Re: Permanent Portfolio concept continues to live on in cas

Given that you seem to expect continued ZIRP/inflation/QE/monetary debasement that will lead to even more ridiculous housing prices, why would you NOT want a mortgage? If the mortgage is non-recourse why not take a loan with only 3.5% or 5% down--or even less down if you can find a bank that'll mak...

Re: Optimal Diet

Now that I've figured out how to consistently cook breast of chicken to a texture I like*, I prefer it over thighs. Plus, you can add sauces (or whatever) to it.

Re: Optimal Diet

I had been pushing more fat and (relatively) less protein over the last few years. Mark is suggesting that was a mistake. As the (other) Mark Rippetoe would quickly tell me. Well, it all depends on the specifics. If you're eating 4000 calories a day, and 2000 of them are coming from 500g of protein...

The great thing about the PP concept is that if you think you can do better than the 4X25% portfolio, you can implement a Variable Portfolio.
Bingo. The PP + VP suits my psychology.

Do you guys really give a shit either way, or are you just having fun arguing? We're at the point where anyone who wants to get vaccinated can, and anyone who doesn't has had the time and information to make their choice. Whichever side of the fence you're on, it would seem that both sides should ag...

Mathjak is completely convinced that the growth trends of the last 40 years will remain intact in the coming decades...and equities will continue to outperform.

Very interesting. Thank you for telling about this. I should give it a try. I certainly need to lose a few pounds, and the things I've tried haven't worked. If your goal is to lose weight, nothing works better than not eating. You can "not eat" for as long as you have excess weight. A day, a half a...
