Best strategy for emergency fund savings? - UGATiger26
My wife and I have finished saving a solid 4-6 month emergency fund (about $15,000). It's currently sitting in a savings account. Any recommendations on where might be a better place to keep it while we do not need it? We want it to be fairly accessible, but would probably not need it immediatel...

Can someone explain negative interest rates to me? - UGATiger26
This is something I've never really been able to wrap my mind around. Probably because I'm not very smart. I try to force myself to read the finance articles in the Economist, even when I don't understand them all that well. So, in the case of negative interest rates, the borrower is actuall...

The Internal Problem of QB Development - UGATiger26
What do we know about Les Miles and turnovers? It’s pretty much common knowledge that the standard punishment for fumbling is the bench. How about interceptions? Well, we know Jarrett Lee threw a bunch of pick-6’s in 2008, and then never started again until Les had no other choice beside...

Obama could go out an a high note if he wanted - UGATiger26
Assuming R's take control of congress, Obama really does have a chance to be remembered as a decent president. In my mind, he has two options: 1. Leave his pride at the door and realize that R's took congress for a reason. The people of the U.S. voted them there. He can actually realize that ...

Anyone ever see "Conspiracy? - UGATiger26
About the Wannsee Conference and the creation of the Final Solution during WWII. If I were a government or political science teacher in high school or college, having my students watch this would without a doubt be a part of my curriculum. Excellent case study on groupthink and the incredible...

Harris/Jennings comparable situation to Stafford/Tereshinki/Cox - UGATiger26
In 2006, Senior Joe Tereshinki got the starting nod at UGA for presumably having more experience and a better grasp of the offense. However, it was Stafford who eventually became the full-time starter, presumably to focus on the future. Should Miles make the same move with Harris? for the...

Open letter to the SI.com staff - UGATiger26
Your new website format blows. Why the hell would I want a pop-out sidebar taking up a third of my screen and blocking the article that I JUST opened?! I haven't even read the first sentence of the fricking article so why the hell would I already want to look at related articles? Does SI.com's primar...

A gift for a life-long Tiger fan - UGATiger26
I never thought I would be posting this type of topic on TD. This is one of those things that you see happen to others, but never think will happen to your family. My father was diagnosed on Tuesday with pancreatic cancer at 63 years old. The man has been an LSU fan since he was old enough t...

Buzzfeed "why I use birth control" - UGATiger26

Headed to Denver for a guy's trip at the end of July. Technically, I've been in Denver before, but have never really stayed there or done anything. Will be landing at about 3:30pm and staying in Denver that night before heading to Aspen for the rest of the weekend. Any suggestions for good d...

Second Amendment question - UGATiger26
Let me start by saying I am very pro-2A, so don't get your panties in a bunch before reading the whole thing. With the Hobby Lobby fallout going on, one of the issues that has come to the forefront is about rights. People are making a big deal about how women's rights are being infringed by the H...

Is logic/reason taking a back seat to emotion because of laziness? - UGATiger26
Forming an argument or belief based on logic and reason takes time and energy. One has to not only read, research, and become acquainted with the facts, but must also use cognitive energy to process it all into a narrative that can be understood and repeated. On the other hand, forming an argume...

Aspen, CO in Summer? - UGATiger26
Planning a guy's trip out west in August and Aspen was an option that is being considered... Anybody ever been in the summer? Decent nightlife and energy? Or does it become pretty dead in the summer? The main focus would be fishing/rafting/outdoors type-stuff, but we obviously want to have a ...
