| Money Talk|| CFA Check in thread. - TheHiddenFlask on 4/8/13 at 11:26 am|
How's everyone doing this go round?
I'm getting close to the end of the first review and should be making not cards by mid week. The writing portion is much more terrifying than I had planned on.
CFA check in thread rules: No discussion of stocks or market ideas. ...
| Political Talk|| Is anyone else excited about the fiscal cliff? - TheHiddenFlask on 12/31/12 at 11:43 am|
A lot of the a-holes who love liberal policies will finally get to pay their fair share instead of passing it on to my generation.
It's going to tag me pretty hard, but it will be worth it to make people feel the pain that they deserve. ...
| O-T Lounge|| Staining/sealing cypress outdoor chairs - TheHiddenFlask on 12/26/12 at 11:25 am|
I got 2 hand made wooden rockers from my parents and I know I need to stain them. However, I don't know much about it and could use some advice.
I'm thinking I want to do a light colored stain first and then I could go darker on later coats if I wanted to.
Is 2 coats of stain the optimal amo...
| Political Talk|| Why do liberal states want large federal government? - TheHiddenFlask on 12/14/12 at 1:52 pm|
I understand that they want a large government, but why wouldn't they want to remove power from the federal government so that they can be free to create their liberal utopia within their state?
As a conservative, I have no problem with any state making their laws and policy as liberal as they wa...

| O-T Lounge|| Espn segment on Colorado head coach - TheHiddenFlask on 11/28/12 at 7:55 am|
He got canned after going 4-21 in 2 years and he pulls the race card.
ESPN takes this and presents it as a fact, backing it up with the fact that only Tyrone Willingham got a second chance at a head coaching gig (which he failed miserably at).
Remind me again what Cutcliffe was fired for? Wh...
| Food and Drink Board|| Tacos Tierra Caliente - Houston food truck - TheHiddenFlask on 11/25/12 at 4:39 pm|
After eating here for the 4th time, I have come to the conclusion that this is the best non high end food I have ever had. I have tried everything there (except for the beef tongue) and it is all phenomenal.
Is there a better taco in Houston?...
| O-T Lounge|| What's the best DWI .gif? - TheHiddenFlask on 11/20/12 at 9:13 am|
This new Lakers bro one has to be close to the GOAT.

| Money Talk|| Groupon: The dumpster fire of tech stocks - TheHiddenFlask on 11/15/12 at 4:57 pm|
So, I have hated pretty much every internet IPO in the past 12-18 months because, frankly, they have all been hot garbage in the rain.
However, even in my beariest dreams, never would I have imagined the fall from grace that GRPN has experienced. I mean, sweet mother of Zeus, that thing has gone ...
| Political Talk|| Rant on the idea and underpinnings of secession - TheHiddenFlask on 11/13/12 at 2:48 pm|
First off, the idea of secession is silly and utopian.
Now that we have that out of the way:
The reason people want to secede, in my opinion, is similar to the reason for the revolutionary war, except completely upside down.
tax paying Americans have carried a heavier and heavier burden o...

I'm near city hall, if that makes a difference....
| Money Talk|| Unemployment down to 7.8% - TheHiddenFlask on 10/5/12 at 7:33 am|
Very convenient for the president.
Especially when only 114k jobs were added. I might be buying into the BLS being rigged.
This makes unemployment .1% lower than when he took office.
ETA: U6 remained unchanged. ...
| Political Talk|| I turned on MSNBC to see how Romney did. WOW! - TheHiddenFlask on 10/4/12 at 6:52 am|
In the first few minutes
The president let him self be over run
Romney dominated the debate
The Obama camp is going to have to make major changes
Romney is a great debater
I wouldn't have expected this kind of stuff out of Fox News. Romney must have really thumped him....

We caught some yesterday and I offered to cook it for they guys. They want it grilled, which wasn't how I was going to do it, so I could use some tips. Mahi Mahi are filleted and some have the skin left on. Amber jack are filleted.
Also, any suggestions on easy appetizers with the fish would be...
| Money Talk|| The GM Card - TheHiddenFlask on 9/17/12 at 10:58 am|
This has to be one of the best cards out there if you are going to buy a new GM vehicle at least every 7 years?
5% back on everything.
The only downside is the cap per purchase is pretty low, but this would make a great "second card" to supplement and Amex, right?...
