Bad at timing the market? You can still make lots of money... - slackster
This article just came up on CNBC, but the origins were from February of this year, so it may be germans. Either way, I think the board will appreciate the insight: [link=(http://awealthofcommonsense.com/worlds-worst-market-timer/)]LINK[/link] [quote]Meet Bob. Bob is the world’s worst mark...

The 2015 College Football theme: Inexperienced QBs dominate the landscape - slackster
I was taking a look at some of the preseason polls and I couldn't help but notice the lack of experience that most teams will have at the QB position. Obviously LSU's tribulations are well documented, but it will be a concern at most top programs this year. Using the preseason Coaches Poll, I've bol...

How important is FDIC insurance to you? - slackster
I often run into clients who have no faith in the US government, yet they will not entertain any investment that lacks FDIC insurance. How important is it to you? Would you have any concerns going over your limit with a bank? Do you "price" the insurance in to the risk/reward analysis of your in...

Leeville/Fourchon/Grand Isle fishing reports? - slackster
Headed down there tomorrow and wanted to see if anyone has had any luck in the past few weeks. I noticed a few mediocre speck reports in the truck thread :lol:, but haven't read/heard much else lately. ...

There is no way the Cavs win without 30+ shots from LeBron - T or F - slackster
Is there any way the Cavs win another game with less than 30 shots from LeBron? I just don't see it. Let me be clear, 30+ shots don't guarantee a win for Cleveland by any means, but I simply don't see another strategy that gives them any chance. ...

Secretariat would have won by approximately 16 lengths today - slackster
Obviously there are some variables that can effect things, and it isn't an exact science converting times to lengths, but using the 6 lengths per second rule of thumb, Secretariat would have beaten American Pharoah by 16 lengths (2.65 seconds). Glad I got to finally see a Triple Crown winner in ...

True or False: Cam Newton will be a Top 5 QB in the NFL in 5 years - slackster
This seems absurd on the surface, but it really isn't that much of a stretch. Drew Brees, Tom Brady, Peyton Manning will all be out of the league. Roethlisberger, Rivers, and Romo will probably be out as well. It is safe to assume that Rodgers and Luck will be Top 5 QBs in 2020, but then w...

So what is the purpose of the "max" contract in the NBA? - slackster
To my knowledge, the NBA is the only professional league that stipulates teams are subject to a particular max contract for a player. Why? The decision to have a salary cap is another story all together, but I simply don't understand the draw of a max contract. It may prop up the salaries of tie...

Would you rather be the T-wolves or Lakers GM in the draft? - slackster
Obviously the 1st pick is better than the 2nd pick, but as a GM, which position would you rather find yourself? From a self-preservation perspective, the Lakers GM is in the best spot IMO - you simply take the big that the T-wolves pass up. I view this draft like I did the 2007 draft with Greg O...

I'd rather watch Noah herp-derp all night than the LAC-HOU foul fiesta - slackster
shite is just tough to watch. Both teams embellish the hell out of ticky-tack fouls and whine from tip-off to final whistle. As bad as the Bulls-Cavs series was on offense, it was considerably more entertaining to me than the 60+ FTA that occur in this LAC-HOU series. Hopefully the Clippers c...

What is going on with Bryce Harper in 2015? - slackster
This season has been quite an anomaly for Harper thus far, and his advanced metrics seem counterintuitive. I know we've got a few Nationals fans on the board and others who've seen him play, so I'm wondering if there is something that is happening on the field that would explain his statistics. ...

Anyone successfully contest a speeding ticket in LA? - slackster
Got one this morning, and while I know everyone says it, I legitimately was not speeding. As long as the court costs are similar to the ticket fine, I'm determined to contest it out of principle. Anyone have advice? ...

Mayweather didn't lose the fight, but did he win it? - slackster
I understand Floyd won more rounds, but that seems like a dumb way to decide the champion. The 4th and 6th rounds for Manny were better than anything Mayweather put together IMO. Seems disingenuous to score those rounds 10-9 as if they were just as close as the 8th and 9th rounds. ...

Is it trade down or bust for Tennessee? - slackster
Tennessee is going to get offered at least two first round picks for their spot, and they would have to be an idiot to pass on that, right? There is all this talk of needing the "right package" or else they'll take Mariota themselves, but if they overplay their hand they're fools. Why take a QB ...

Robert Valentine - A true American amidst the chaos in Baltimore - slackster
This was from the CNN coverage of Baltimore last night, but I feel it deserves a separate thread so it can be properly appreciated. Wish there were more people like him... [link=(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sN1qSRgKoU0)]Video[/link]...
