    Amigo, I don't think that you've ever had teenagers in your house before! I need to get a second job to feed the three in my house!

    Re-Framing Capitalism

    Maximizing profit is human nature. When you hire a firm to repair your fence, do you offer to pay them more than their bid?

    How should west respond to potential (likely) Russian invasion of Ukraine?

    Your post makes zero sense. You don't like the Ukrainian Oligarchs. Fine. You don't like those oligarch meanies who now own rubble and ruin. Fine. Do you give a fucking shit about their families? How about all the innocent civilians? Their children? I donated money to a group that...

    Pizzagate

    Come on Man! You're behind in the news! But I'm glad that I finally have an ally on this forum. But I've been saying this for years. And mocked mercilessly. There is an alien space ship that is orbiting mars right now. They are dying from lack of pituitary glands. These glands can only be...

    Russian Invasion of Ukraine - tactics and logistics

    Good post. I agree with you. Although I would add that Russia is to blame for the countries moving towards Nato and the west. These countries are much closer to Russia and should have natural alliance with Russia. Russia has great resources to sell. But instead Russia bullies the border...

    Re-Framing Capitalism

    Except that the paper belongs to someone else. The wealth in your house for example is only “paper”. Is based on an appraisal based on subjective educatated best guesses. But homes go up and down in value every day. Would you be happy if someone wanted to take the paper wealth in your house...

    Re-Framing Capitalism

    Yea, I struggle with how am I hurt if someone has more stock than I. I only invest in index funds. I don't think that it's a great idea for the vast majority of investors to own direct stock anyway. Individual company stocks go up and down dramatically, far more volatile that mutual funds...

    Russian Invasion of Ukraine - tactics and logistics

    I'm curious if anyone has a theory why there is such an appalling disregard for Russian KIA by Russia soldiers? I've seen countless videos of killed Russian soldiers just lying in the road. Just left there by Russians. It's quite shocking. You don't see Ukrainians leaving their dead in the...

    Russian Invasion of Ukraine - tactics and logistics

    Sorry, but there's no way I'm going to click on a link for "darknet.rutor" or whatever that is. I don't click on any link that I don't trust. Do you have a secondary source that is more mainstream? But this raises a few questions to me. First off, one person allegedly selling an AK-74 means...

    Russian Invasion of Ukraine - tactics and logistics

    Well, do you have a source for that? That's a pretty bold assertion. But the larger issue here is that Ukrainians are running out of ammo and are in need of longer range weapons. The Ukranian weapons have been mostly shorter term defensive weapons designed to take out Russian motor vehicles...

    Is Crypto dying or just dropping for the moment?

    Well, this is just malarky. Just ask any exporter or importer: the currency of choice is the dollar. In 2020, 90% of the worlds international transactions were conducted in dollars. Not gold. Not the ruble.

    Is Crypto dying or just dropping for the moment?

    I think that you're probably right. Another issue is that many people have put all their investment in Crypto. All your eggs in any one basket is a mistake. Diversify. I have some crypto, but it's probably under 2%. I'm pretty damned exposed in the stock market now, and it's not doing well...

    How should west respond to potential (likely) Russian invasion of Ukraine?

    You are a little more pessimistic than me my friend. The Ukrainians had primarily defensive weapons. They had to wait until the Russians were within their range, then they launched, and then ran away. Very effective against an ineffective uninspired army lead by imbeciles. However, Russians...

    How should west respond to potential (likely) Russian invasion of Ukraine?

    It sometimes makes me sick to my stomach to watch soldiers being killed on the battlefield via the drone videos. And this attack was quite striking. However, the Russians are in a country that did not welcome them. They are stealing land, blowing up buildings and hospitals, killing people...

    Neoliberalism Has Poisoned Our Minds, Study Finds

    I made a mistake above! My guess that much of the Victorian unrest was more due to lack of mobility. If you weren't born in the right area and with the right parents, you were stuck.

    Neoliberalism Has Poisoned Our Minds, Study Finds

    Yea, I have to say that inequality has never bothered me in the least. Wealth is greatly overrated. I have friends who are extremely successful, but work 90 hours a week. Not for me. I'd rather work 50 hours a week and ski on the weekends! I'll bet that the average American with median...

    How should west respond to potential (likely) Russian invasion of Ukraine?

    Very good point. You’re right. Actions in Ukraine will only affect Americans who consume food; use gas and oil; or who are impacted by inflation. No effect for anyone else.

    Close call at Paris airport

    Yes, you are correct. The local controller at the tower was entirely at fault. I was a tower controller many years ago (worked approach for 6 months also). Good analysis on your part. You're spot on

    How should west respond to potential (likely) Russian invasion of Ukraine?

    Dude: where do you get the news!? Of course. The Russians are bombing Ukranian cities and ports. The Ukrainians don't like that. So, they are trying to push the Russian artillery and navy away from Ukranian cities as possible. Asking Russians to stop isn't working. So we're sending...
