Re: Placement of cash (vs other PP assets)

In addition to Arthur P’s question, I’m curious as to how the transfer went. You didn’t have to take possession first, did you? Do the Perth Mint & Texas Bullion work together to obviate that? (First world problems, yes. The best kind :D )

Re: Placement of cash (vs other PP assets)

What an interesting thread, Sophie. Wish I had a high enough tax bracket to have to worry about it.

(Noncash: I’m out of date. I thought you kept your gold at Perth Mint. But, I remember there were a couple concerns there).

Great fake ID, Mr Trump O0 I love the rubber duckies in the tub. What is that, soup? My wife wants to know.

Re: Moonshots

I took a nibble of LUNR yesterday (Intuitive Machines), a literal moonshot. It’s up this morning pre-market due to the successful landing but I don’t expect to make money on it in the long run, necessarily. Just want to be along for the ride.

That transparent roof is neat! I know a guy who doesn’t like to sit at outdoor cafes because he’s worried that birds will drop something in his cup or some kind of plant detritus will fall in there. This would work for him O0

Re: Daily "Check In" Thread For Us

Probably just to stamp their logo into the toast. I think “coffee”, from Arabic, is one of those words that sounds pretty much the same — well, identifiable — around the world. “Taxi” — same. An English name for a bar, coffee shop or restaurant is still pretty faddish in far-flung regions. Not alway...

Re: Daily "Check In" Thread For Us

The coffee is much stronger on average than in North America and there’s lots of unique takes on flavour such as grapefruit lattes. I really like strong coffee. … I made my wife coffee for six months before I realized that the plastic “tablespoon” I was using was really 2 TBSP. (You’re supposed to ...

It’s extremely complicated, Vinny. But, suffice it to say, as soon as I saw your question I went right to work.

Re: Confused about Karat Pay, Karat Gold, etc

At last, a legit website! Thank you, pmbug.

Interesting that Apmex wants to sell cotton gloves with them when they are encased in protective polyester. But, I guess that’s to keep one’s finger oils off the polyester.

To date, you have seen his name eleven times in your lifetime, not including here.

Confused about Karat Pay, Karat Gold, etc

Looking at Smith's post , I got curious about the official site. I don't buy gold by the gram; 1oz coins are for for me. Still curious, though. Maybe if you could insert these cards into a reader that would authenticate them... I found lots of dealers, but no official site. There is one Karat or Kar...
