Re: The Permanent Tooth and Gum Care Regime

I had not previously heard of Novamin. Googling it, I found an NIH paper that states that the substance has promise as an anti cavity agent, perhaps superior to fluoride. I assure you that the ADA and or other dental groups are not trying to prevent its use unless they feel it is unsafe for some re...

Re: Bullshit Jobs (Article)

At the end of my career I could have easily done what was expected of me on my job in 15 hours a week or less. There were actually some weeks in which I spent every minute of my required 40 hours doing absolutely nothing but surfing the web. The biggest challenge was figuring what bullshit to put o...

I won't go over all of it nor am I an expert in it (and you can google for what the method involves in detail) but here's a gist: - The underlying philoso...

Re: The Permanent Tooth and Gum Care Regime

Anyone try toothpaste with Novamin which I hear works even better than the Crest Cavity Protection paste recommended here? I hear it's banned in the US but not illegal per se and you can buy it off of Amazon, though at inflated prices. And one of the reasons it's banned is because it worked so well ...

Re: Why should PP continue going up?

"Why should ______ continue to go up?" You can substitute many things for PP in that questions..... Real estate, 60/40, any number of lazy portfolios, farm land, silver, muni bonds, etc, etc. Unfortunately no one can ever answer these with certainty. My belief is that balanced portfolios stand the ...

Re: Furthering my financial education

If you want to work in the industry, go for CFA.

If you just need advice for managing your own investments, trustworthy forums and blogs are you friend.
