Re: Colorado Grocery Store Mass Shooter

Not at all, Sophie. It’s on me. I get highstrung before a flight. Thank you for being patient with me. For those who have a gun and a license to carry ( or open carry) there is no substitute. If you have to come back late at night from the airport or move a lot of gold at once, or whatever, a bodygu...

Re: Colorado Grocery Store Mass Shooter

O0 Point taken. In a pinch, a weapon (and training to use it) is the only thing that will give you a fighting chance. Too late for a guard in that situation.

Re: mathjak's daytrading adventures

Looks like this is another anything-can-happen year. Is the economy on track to recover or is it all an illusion?
I’m still hopeful for stocks, myself.

Re: Colorado Grocery Store Mass Shooter

but the mass shootings you're thinking of- the Joker in the movie theater, the guy shooting down into the crowd from his room in Las Vegas - you're right. There are some things that just happen and you cannot defend against them. So you don’t own a gun, have no training in firearms or defensive tac...

Re: mathjak's daytrading adventures

I’m ok taking losses in stocks, losses in what I consider “protective assets” like Gold and LTT’s is more difficult to swallow. It's really frustrating when they don't zig enough for stocks' downward zag. But, they really aren't protective assets in the sense above. Or rather, they aren't protected...

Re: Colorado Grocery Store Mass Shooter

Same with the gun. My hood is safe, but I have one in the house just in case. No concealed carry permit, so I just don't go into sketchy areas. That's my own personal choice, not a commentary on anything else. I would bet most people would consider the Colorado grocery store neighborhood to be as s...

Re: Colorado Grocery Store Mass Shooter

I used to walk home from the train station after midnight, after flying home. I don't do that as of 2020, but it's not a reason to move. It's a reason to take a cab.

If you want to hire someone to bodyguard you, it needs to be an off duty police officer.

Just as an example, the aforementioned app works in NYC. The guards are ex-military and some are retired police, but not off duty police officers.

Tesla accepting bitcoin doesn't count because the price is still in dollars. But Taleb on a rant isn't unusual :) It's his...

Huh. I thought Bostonians just don’t pronounce Rs. “Bah” instead of “bar”, “cah” instead of “car”, etc. Wouldn’t have guessed “torlet”.
Maybe it's like the British where they put them in when unneeded. 😂 I sawr a film today. No offense to our British pp'ers.

Re: Who’s buying Gold?

I would love to buy more gold this spring. It’s like $90 over spot (5.4%) to $200 over spot, which hurts. If it were closer to spot I’d already have it in my hands. Still hesitating.

Putting speculation aside, I've read a lot about the real and useful commercial purposes of secure digital currencies. I've read very little that says BITC is it due it's limitations.

Could you clarify that last sentence. Bitcoin is “it”?

When was the last time a Jew went on a shooting spree or blew himself up? Rhetorical question, I know. Probably that guy who went nuts in Hebron. Long time ago. In the U.S. none come to mind.
