If they want to build anything they better bring a bunch of heavy equipment and dirt. The entire city of Monrovia is built on a swamp. ...
| O-T Lounge|| re: Ebola in Thailand - JL on 9/17/14 at 7:52 am|
There are plenty of people here who already think that the US brought ebola here. I would say our troops are at a bit of risk heading to Liberia. Tons of people there still have weapons from the civil war and aren't informed enough to understand why a bunch of troops just showed up. I worked in an...

I work in Lagos. Have to get my temp checked daily when I get in for work. And yes I get paid handsomely for the risk. In Nigeria they did a good job isolating and stomping out the issue as far as I am told. I worry more about getting malaria than ebola over here. ...

I tried dating an aggie, didn't work. Tried dating a liberal, didn't work.
My current SO went to LSU, has similar values, beliefs, and work ethic. Personality wise I am very spontaneous and a risk taker, she is the opposite which works out well to keep me in check. I'm a big partier, she will ...

I went with my GF expecting to be bored, but had a blast. We did universal which serves booze and has roller coasters and stuff, was legit. No alcohol served in Magic Kingdom but still had a great time there, laser and fireworks show at the end of the night was really good. Did the around the wor...

Broke up with a chick cause she asked the waitress sarcastically for a napkin when there was a pile sitting in front of her. Would never date a girl who was rude to a waiter/waitress. ...

I had one of our third party guys get in my face in front of a bunch of other contractors, I'm the supervisor of the operations. Didn't say a word, waited for him to leave and wrote a letter to his manager that got him fired. They were the only company in this country who did that type of work so ...

Not sure if it was mentioned but Katie Mixon's dad played for LSU, she's a big tiger fan.

I'm usually a few cocktails in any time I'm getting on a plane so nothing really bothers me except people who don't listen to the flight attendant and people who get up and sprint to the front past your seat when you land. I work international and fly united all the time. Not a fan of the Dreamlin...

31, net worth ~700k, planning on an early retirement. Plan to roll my 401k and a few loose investment accounts I have under one advisor, this investment would be $500k. Already have a house with very low interest rate. May need to take care of my parents a little but not worried about that. Not ...

| Money Talk|| re: Need help picking advisor (dimensional fund advisors) - JL on 9/5/14 at 9:24 am|
I'm trying to find someone to handle my investments, the advisor in question is someone I know and trust. The minimum investment with his group is $500k. He has fiduciary duty and with my limited knowledge of investments their investing model looks good. I'm just trying to determine if this is th...
| Money Talk|| re: Need help picking advisor (dimensional fund advisors) - JL on 9/5/14 at 8:05 am|
My understanding is that they are fairly selective as to who they associate with. Could I make the assumption that if they are doing business with this certain advisor it's safe to say he has his shite together? ...
| Money Talk|| Need help picking advisor (dimensional fund advisors) - JL on 9/5/14 at 3:42 am|
I'm looking at an advisor who says he has an alliance with Dimensional Fund Advisors. Anyone familiar with this group? The advisor I'm speaking with says he is one of the few firms in the area that has access to their investment strategy and funds. I'm looking for someone to manage my portfolio a...

You've got a group of guys with good jobs and plenty of disposable income partying in Vegas with a combined few thousand dollars on the Spurs to win in the NBA finals, you are owning the sports book, the spurs win and you take the money straight to spearmint rhino and party balls for the rest of the...

I like the adrenaline rush you get when you have a lot of money on the line for a game/hand. I love going to vegas with a set spending limit and getting after it. If I lose, i'm over it. Usually I'm drunk, no big deal. ...
