I'm sure a lot of people have heard about this but it is new to me and I did a search and didn't see anything so I figure I would post.
This guy is applying the whole "practice something for 10,000 hours and you will be an expert" thing to golf. He is trying to go from ...

I really need to cut back on my caffeine/energy drink intake. On a given day I'll probably drink 2-3 cups of coffee and a full 16oz can of Monster.
How difficult will it be and how long will it take for me to get over the effects of going cold-turkey on all of this stuff? I'm expecting some h...

| SEC Rant|| Why is American Football so popular in the United States? - bpfergu on 3/7/13 at 7:58 pm|
I guess this is sort of SEC-related.
If you look at the rest of the world, the most popular sports primarily consist of soccer, cricket, basketball, and a few others sprinkled here and there. However, in the United States it is american football.
The typical "american" sports are baseball and...

Yeah I've googled it but I still have read mixed opinions.
I want to diversify some and start an account outside of my 401k and stocks.
The plan is to put some money I have saved into either an ETF(s) or mutual fund(s) and add to it on a monthly basis (if possible, and if it makes any differen...

I say "cure" because you can't really cure cancer. Rather contain it and control it indefinitely.
I also say "most major" cancers because I know many different cancers react differently to many approaches, and there are a plethora of rarer cancers that haven't or probably won't have the necessar...

OK, so I've been using Creditkarma for quite some time now. I'm constantly looking for more ways to bump up my credit score, and I was looking at their "credit report card" to see where I could improve.
For "total accounts" I only had a grade of "C". Apparently it looks better if I have 21+ acc...

For me it is a good pair of shoes. I don't have a problem spending 400+ dollars on a good pair of AE strands or some Alden boots. I know they will last for 10+ years and those...
