One of my biggest pet peeves. I just left the grocery with 6 items. How many bags did I get? 6. A bag for every fricking item.
I usually get paper or I'm prudent in telling them to load them up, but wasn't paying attention this time.
I can't stand double baggers either. I've never had a bag b...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Marcus Wheaton or Terrance Williams? - rintintin on 9/11/14 at 8:29 am|
This would be my 2nd wr and are my only options. 14 team league, .5 ppr, with very few bench spots, and I have Welker molly'ed out on the bench.
I started Williams last week and he had a decent game, but only because he caught a meaningless TD at the end of the game. Plus Romo was horrible.
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| This was Atl's Superbowl - rintintin on 9/7/14 at 3:35 pm|
Although it's only the first game, after last season they needed this game for their confidence for the rest of the season. They played with so much emotion.
I'm not that mad actually. We're better than them, and they know it. We'll beat them by 2 TD's in the dome.
The defense played horribly...

[quote]Tanner McEvoy 8/24 50 yards 0 Td 2 Int 6.8 QBR[/quote]
I know Wisconsin is a run oriented team and their QB was untested, but that stat line above is just atrocious. Give credit to our secondary, who could've been exposed considering our run defense was getting gashed most of the game and ...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Welker owners, how worried at you? - rintintin on 8/27/14 at 8:30 am|
Usually a concussion is no big deal, and a player will not miss significant time. But with this being his 3rd in less than a year, coupled with the NFL being extremely cautious with concussions now, how worried are you that he will:
a) miss significant time?
b) be less productive due t...

Any recommendations on a day road trip from New Orleans to see some plantations? Strangely, living here my whole life I've never been to any plantations or tours or such, and would very much like to go.
Planning to go this Sunday with my gf. I was thinking maybe Oak Alley and St. Joseph, since t...
| Money Talk|| Timing the market - rintintin on 3/16/14 at 7:06 pm|
I know timing the market is taboo to most investors. A fools errand it is. We simply can't predict what it's going to do day in and day out. Many professionals, and some of the best investors of all time abide by the "hold through thick and thin" rule.
Given that, for shits and giggles, I decid...
| More Sports Board|| Now we have to hear how mature and "well spoken" Winston is all damn year - rintintin on 1/6/14 at 11:15 pm|
The main reason I didn't want FSU to win. For some reason the media thinks his childish slang is "well spoken" and he's oh so mature for his age. I'm sorry for all that like him, but he aggravates the shite out of me. I won't be watching ESPN for a good few months.

Opened a Roth and SEP IRA for the new year through Ameritrade. These are my first retirement accounts and I plan to not touch them for 30 or so years.
Basically what I would like to do is use one to purchase some well diversified mutual funds or ETF's, make regular contributions, and pretty much...

From what I've read they seem to be much more advantageous for self-employed folks over Traditional or Roth IRA's. The maximum contribution per year is nearly 10x's that of other IRA's, you can use it to invest in any number of investments including real estate, stocks, etc, and you can "borrow" up ...

regardless of what happens in the game.
I watched the game in a predominately Bama bar, and I have to say Bama fans are pretty boring miserable people. They emulate their coach perfectly. I felt like I was at a funeral.
Sure we lost, our season is over, and we'll bash our goofy coach and team...
