Which is why these forums need to change, expand,  and reconstitute. We should have a medical/health/science section as well as an alternative investments section that would include lazy portfolios.  If we stop expanding we will cease to exist.

I really like the idea of a medical/health section.  I think that would generate a lot of discussion.

+1.


I also was thinking about personal finance/non-investing section, but there is one on Bogleheads already.

This is a place where the Bogleheads have feared to go. :)

Of course they have! This forum is full of blasphemy with all the talk about forbidden assets - gold and LTTs.  :o

Why does that remind me of your views on foreign policy?  ::)

Please substitute the word growing for the word expanding.  I hope that it sounds more palatable to you libertarians now. :)

Up to you guys..  I'm fine with either a separate forum or renaming this to "other lazy portfolios."  The bottom line is, I'm far more interested in discussing other lazy asset allocations rather than the few PP funds out there.
