Ripping off the elderly

This stuff is disgusting. The reason they get away with it is because the investments are safe. Safe from loss but not safe from inflation. There are two sides to the risk coin. Risk of loss from price fluctuations and loss from eroding dollar value (inflation).

Why Your Not Married

Sound advice for women who want to get married. I would add stop reading romance novels. I am lucky in that my wife seemed to get this from the start.

Because ultimately, marriage is not about getting something -- it's about giving it. Strangely, men understand this more than we do. Probably because for them marriage involves sacrificing their most treasured possession -- a free-agent penis -- and for us, it's the culmination of a princess fantasy so universal, it built Disneyland.

The bottom line is that marriage is just a long-term opportunity to practice loving someone even when they don't deserve it. Because most of the time, your messy, farting, macaroni-and-cheese eating man will not be doing what you want him to. But as you give him love anyway -- because you have made up your mind to transform yourself into a person who is practicing being kind, deep, virtuous, truthful, giving, and most of all, accepting of your own dear self -- you will find that you will experience the very thing you wanted all along:

Love.



Diego adds: Women don't need to stop reading romance novels they just need to reconcile them with reality and learn how they can enhance their relationship. Romance novels and movies are like porn; know their place.

Are stock prices determined by facts or human nature?

And for every Bill Miller, there's a Charles Steadman, who ran the snakebit Steadman Technology & Growth fund, which managed to lose nearly 90% over 30 years. Those 30 years, incidentally, ended in 1997, one of the best periods ever for stocks.



How do you get people to keep giving you money for 30 years with that track record? He must have lost it all at once but 1997 was not a bad year for stocks especially tech stocks.

"Cooking by the Book" A Lil' Bigger Mix by Mastgrr

NSFW. This is funny but it is so wrong. I mean very wrong. WWWRRROOONNNNGGG!!!

The show is Lazy Town a kids show produced out of Iceland. My son loved this show for about 6 months and then he mercifully chose another show to watch since the show was on a loop with only about 12 episodes and, although the tunes were catchy, on the fiftieth viewing you just want it to stop.
