| Money Talk|| Best place to invest $500k for 6 months - RC on 12/24/12 at 6:34 pm|
If you had $500k that you will likely need in around 6 months, where would you invest it?
I would like to get better than the sub 1% returns from most CD's and bank accounts. Also, I am not entirely risk averse. A 10% or so loss wouldn't be a killer....

So my nephew spent 1 semester at Texas A&M and hated it, so after sitting out this semester it looks like he will be transferring to LSU.
He doesn't know anyone at LSU, so a situation where he can meet people and make friends would be optimal. He doesn't seem like a frat star, so I don't think...

| Tiger Rant|| Ever sit in the Stadium Club for the Spring Game? - RC on 3/7/11 at 9:36 pm|
How is it? At $30 per adult I wonder if it's worth it, especially since regular tickets are free and seating is open. However I thought it might be nice to check it out and see if I would want to try and get seats there in the future....
| Money Talk|| Investing in an oil well - RC on 12/21/10 at 5:33 pm|
Anyone done this? I was talking to a guy who owns an oil and gas exploration company about this. It sounds like a bit of a high risk high reward investment, but he says he is very selective and hasn't had many dry wells. The minimum investment is around $50k to $100k depending on the specific pro...

| Tiger Rant|| The Les Miles Bubble - RC on 10/3/10 at 8:41 am|
I have the perfect analogy for this team. Les Miles is like a financial bubble. Just like real estate prices continued to climb despite poor fundamentals in the market, Miles keeps winning despite his poor coaching. We know what happens at the end of every financial bubble, the question is - are ...

I think I really need the services of a financial planner, but I'm not really sure which direction to take. I've only had limited interaction with anyone in that field and came away unimpressed. The guys that I talked to tried hard to push me towards whole life policies and a very limited family o...
| Conference Expansion|| Why is academics even mentioned? - RC on 6/10/10 at 8:09 pm|
I keep seeing arguments about the academics of the SEC keeping UT out. I would argue that the academics are on par with the Big12, although certainly it is lower than the Pac10 and Big10.
But why does it even matter? It's not like we are competing for the collegiate quiz bowl championship. The...
| Political Talk|| Would a Constitutional Convention be worth the risk? - RC on 3/22/10 at 9:32 pm|
The only way to really reign in the power of the federal government would be through constitutional amendments. There has already been a movement to do just this, see [link=(http://www.federalismamendment.com/)]LINK[/link].
In 1983 we were only 2 states away from the 34 needed to initiate a co...

I would like to start a company selling morality offsets. The premise is simple - if a republican politician or religious figure is caught cheating or molesting boys, they can purchase morality credits from my company and remain morality neutral. In turn I will place a bible in a hotel room drawer...
