One idea that occurred to me, considering how far processors have evolved past non-content creat...
| Money Talk|| Renting vs owning - Siderophore on 4/7/13 at 11:12 am|
Everywhere I see, it is being proclaimed by many news organizations via monthly cost analysis between the two that owning is cheaper than renting.
Even I have said similar things in the past, usually revolving around the notion that renting was like throwing money away.
But now that I am pla...
| Money Talk|| Input on portfolio allocation - Siderophore on 4/1/13 at 10:52 am|
14.1% VDC (consumer staples)
20.2% VOO (S&P500 index)
24.2% VTV (value oriented fund)
21.2% VWO (emerging markets)
This is all in a Roth with an investment horizon of 30+ years.
Main thing that was bugging me was if I should replace the S&P index with a growth oriented fund to...

| Money Talk|| Is the staff agency giving me the shaft somehow? - Siderophore on 2/15/13 at 7:50 pm|
I don't know the typical relationship between the staffing agency and a company, therefore I don't know if there is a vested interest for the staffing company to engage in certain practices.
Basically the situation is this:
I have a job listing I really like in a situation/geography that fall...

That is, potentially high dollar, sometimes unexpected, non-routine expenses that will nonetheless occur inevitably.
Car down payment.
Taking the family cross country
Need a new hot water heater
Buffer for moderate emergencies so you don't needlessly tap retirements

| O-T Lounge|| How many pants would have been shat if the power cut completely? - Siderophore on 2/3/13 at 10:44 pm|
Not nesscessarily in the dome, but across the country.
Wouldn't it kill the camera feeds, and a lot of people jumping to the conclusion that a terrorist attack occurred?
The truth would get out pretty fast, but that would still be an intense couple of minutes.......

It already happened. Granted, it was a Dem congress but there was a lot less political pressure then.
Is not having a sunset clause really that big of a deal in passage?...
| Help Board|| Are input on classes on LSU no longer kosher? - Siderophore on 1/15/13 at 12:52 pm|
A thread on the OT was anchored and I don't know why
I can't think of a rule broken, not even the "No two word thread titles" one.
Enlighten me to the protocol?
Do we need to have an LSU board to make sure the WYHI threads don't get undue competition? :lol:

And I don't might tightening these regulations in certifying who can get what.
My only complaint is when it comes to restrictions of what kinds of guns you can ...
