Re: The GOLD scream room

Yup, and since your buy you’ve stunk it up...too bad. Yet my 70/30 is up 340K YTD. How’s your gold YTD? Ok, if I did the math right, that means you, Buddtholomew, have about $12M in your portfolio, and yet you spend your time coming on here to whine about gold's poor performance over the last few y...

Re: More Than Half of Millenials Expect to Be Millionaires

Don't see anything wrong with having such expectations when you're young. Reality will settle in soon enough and I'm sure a lot of them will make it.

Re: Wellesley

I remember a heated debate between Wellesley and the PP on another forum but I don't think it was Bogleheads. I do remember that somebody named Medium Tex was the main PP protagonist however. I went all in with Wellessly for a while because the PP seemed a bit too exotic for my tastes at the time bu...

Re: The Psychology of Money

I have a much simpler solution: parents pay for their children's education. What if they can't afford to? Or choose not to? Isn't it better for society to have everyone educated? When and where I grew up, the prevailing thought seemed to be that the children paid for their own education, perhaps wi...

The Psychology of Money

I think PP'er's will relate to most of this.... http://www.collaborativefund.com/blog/the-psychology-of-money/ The piece is chock full of money quotes so it was hard to pick one but here goes (quite relevant to this forum, I think) ..... Anything worthwhile with money has high stakes. High stakes en...

Re: School Shootings

Ditto. My High School graded on the percentage scale. Highest possible was 100% which required 100% on all tests and homework, and perfect attendance in the specified class. College was on the 4.0 maximum scale. I suppose that due to The Great Leveling, there's been a need for ever more creative wa...

Re: Freedom

Actually it really IS a pain reliever. See https://www.leafly.com/news/health/cannabis-for-chronic-pain-vs-opioids for a report on some of the research demonstrating this. I can see what they mean but I'll stand by my point, based on anecdotal, experiential evidence so far. Based on my experience i...

Re: NFL National Anthem Controversy

I don't think the "bottom of the barrel" criticism applies here. This isn't the Trump thread, it's the NFL National Anthem Controversy thread. I didn't say "this happened, so Trump is the greatest ever". But it is definitely a win for him. Maybe some are fawning, I don't know. But I do know that Tr...

Re: Trump as tragicomedy

The cover-up continues to unravel . . . For the first time today, I actually think people will be going to prison. Add to Trump's accomplishments the exposure of the massive core of corruption within the DNC and its role as the waterboy of the Deep State. Some bit players may go to jail, probably o...

Re. neck issues. Been there, done that twice. First time about 5 years ago went to doctor, then for MRI and subsequent nerve tests to check for where the problem was (C7). Went to PT for a few weeks. Pain subsided somewhat with the help of heavy duty pain meds for a couple weeks. Was the OK for abo...

Re: Gold Coin Counterfeit Detectors

I bought the gold coin balance early on when I started collecting bullion coins. At the time it came with a guarantee because no coin had ever been produced that could deceive it and they offered to buy the fake coin for the market price if that ever happened. Last I heard, they withdrew that offer ...
