I only have about $5k in my scottrade account: a couple of funds I bought that had $1k mins and some assorted stock. I've been thinking about buying VTSMX (min. $3k). As the subject says... any reason I should buy directly from vanguard? Scottrade will charge me $17, I believe. However, I like h...

In the past I've used up favors with friends or hired random laborers. Friends break shite b/c they drink and laborers steal things. I'm thinking it's time to let the pros handle it. Anyone got a decent mover in the Baton Rouge area that they recommend? I see the trucks around town all the time, ...

Didn't know if this had been posted before, but I didn't want to post it the usual thread b/c of the spoiler. I think Lee Toric (Donal Logue) is going to wreck some shite.

Verizon and AT&T data plans are pretty shitty and I've been looking at T-Mobile. However, there map shows a lot of 'service partner' coverage when you get away from the major cities and interstates. How is the coverage in Denham, Zachary, New Roads, etc? Also curious if anyone has problems in the...

| Political Talk|| Is the 'electorate' really different today than in the past? - ashy larry on 11/7/12 at 9:33 pm|
I've seen this excuse used a lot in the last 24 hours. However, when you look at the presidential elections over the past 20 years, no democrat has gotten less than 251 electoral votes. You have to go back to Dukakis to find a Democrat that has performed worse than Romney's 206.
I point this...

don't get me wrong... the content is great. But the whole website is terrible. Say what you want about netflix, but I find their site 100 times easier to use. it is easier to add things to the queue and keep track of what i've watched.
