Re: Golden Butterfly asset location when retired with RMDs

Is your idea of long term care buying blood transfusions from virgins like Kriegs or to die mumbling in your sleep like Mathjak and Vinny? Is your idea of long term care buyin...

I think "trust fund babies" are more the result of bad parenting than having a trust fund.
It's hard to know what happens once significant money enters the picture.
I didn't mean to imply there would be significant money involved ;D

Re: You can't take it with you...

I suspect people might get worried about "oversaving" in cases where they don't like what they have to do to make the money. If you hate your job, it would make sense to not work at it a second longer than necessary, and therefore figuring out how much is 'necessary' is important. I think a better s...

Roci, is that a nod to The Expanse?
Good call, but no it is a nod to the original Rocinante by Cervantes. A knight errant needs an appropriate steed.
Although it was an excellent choice by The Expanse.

Oops. TBH, I thought it had to be either eastern WV or (stretch) PA, since he had DC people on so much, and he said he was in a rural area.
