Re: Crazy Doctor Talk

I have dealt with physicians in a surprising number of settings, and the one thing that I can always count on is an attitude of: "I know.  I got it.", even when it was clear that they hadn't gotten it yet.  When you are trying to provide professional services to these people it can be maddening--e....

Re: Crazy Doctor Talk

So is it any surprise that adding a lot more stress is not working out too well?  It's not too surprising, MT, that two doctors of your acquaintenance have exited stage right in the past two years.  Sadly that trend will continue.  And yes, maybe it is the nicer/sensitive people who are less likely...

Re: Time to buy CEF?

Thoughts? I think it's a reasonable thing to do, as long you're comfortable with the tracking error you'll get as compared to a PP holding only gold, and especially if it's with only a fraction of your gold allocation. I am thinking about doing it myself.  I trust CEF more than I do GLD, SGOL, IAU,...

Re: Sprott Intends to Make Exchange Offers for Central GoldTrust and Silver Bullion

And CEF, but that has a lot of silver too. Actually not a bad idea, though, especially if you don't hold a high percentage of your overall gold allocation in an ETF or close-ended fund.  I just like these Canadian funds better.  They are more transparent and less susceptible to Wall Street shenanig...

Re: Other risks

I wish I was a cartoonist.

I feel like someone could make a great comic strip  out of whales discussing the thumb-bots.  I'm not sure how...sorta like Dilbert...but with whales and thumb-boys instead of Dilbert.

About 4 mins.

Black Mirror

There's a new episode of the Black Mirror available on Netflix called "White Christmas." 

The entire series (all 3 seasons) have really great, original, creepy science fiction (like a modern-day Twilight Zone) but this episode is particularly good.

Re: Official Fargo-Only thread

I think that season 2 was better than season 1. Season 2 was some of the best television I have ever seen. If you go back and watch it a second time, there are all sorts of details that you probably missed the first time around.  Brad Garrett's explanation of his shampoo preferences takes on a lot ...

Re: LEAPS PP

this my humble opinion... i do love the PP... however i think gold is dead i dont think it will rise again for at least 10 years... That may or may not be true.  But if you look back at the bear market of 80's and 90's, there were still years where gold had positive returns. Hopefully you keep us p...
