re: Germanwings Crash: One Pilot locked out of cockpit at time of crash - slackster
Boarding a flight now. Hooray! In regards to a solution, you would think they could have some sort of emergency override button that would allow the plane to be controlled remotely. If something was to go wrong, a centralized remote location could stabilize the flight. You could also have some ...

re: Hierarchy of luxury brands around the world - slackster
[quote]what's the difference between Omega and Rolex outside of Rolex's more successful marketing? [/quote] Not much. I threw Omega in one of my previous posts because of the price point, but I was not insinuating that it isn't a quality watch. It is actually a great bang for the buck. Howeve...

re: Hierarchy of luxury brands around the world - slackster
[quote]Paying a fortune to impress random people you don't know, doesn't.[/quote] This is the biggest sticking point. With most "luxury" items, there is a vast wasteland of expensive items with relatively piss-poor quality. If you aren't going to spend enough to get out of that wasteland, you're ...

[quote]If you aren't spending 6k, you should just buy a suit from Men's Wearhouse. Isn't that the same logic you applied to watches?[/quote] Perhaps I should not have attached a dollar figure to my previous post. I used that number as a general threshold for where the investment-worthy watche...

re: Hierarchy of luxury brands around the world - slackster
[quote]is a Rolex not property? [/quote] Great point. There are accessories from quality brands that can legitimately be considered an investment - not simply a good ROI, but an item that actually goes up in value. Also, there are quality items, such as suits, that are simply a much better R...

re: Hierarchy of luxury brands around the world - slackster
[quote]They are certainly a safe choice and have excellent brand recognition. Wouldn't be my first choice knowing what I know now. [/quote] This is a good point. There are certain items, watches in particular, that you either "go big or go home" so to speak. Basically, if you're not willing to s...

[quote]Mo'ne Davis even said on ESPN that she thought it was really unfair for this one mistake to ruin everything he has done. [/quote] Welcome to the real world. What is the appropriate punishment for a college student who calls a 13 year old girl a slut? On another note, I find it amusi...

re: CNBC: For millions of Americans, the 401k is a failure - slackster
[quote]I predict that it will simply be made obsolete by inflation[/quote] Possibly, but the cost of living increases are nothing to scoff at with SS over time.

re: CNBC: For millions of Americans, the 401k is a failure - slackster
In most cases, you're more than capable of doing just that. I posted this article on the Money Board as well, assuming I'd get different perspectives. If you go there, you'll find that most people advocate to put into your plan up to the employee match, the free money, and then fully fund your ...

re: CNBC: For millions of Americans, the 401k is a failure - slackster
The comments on the article are hilarious. You've got people clamoring for a return to defined benefit plans, while bitching about the cuts to pension benefits in the same breath. Basically, the average American is too lazy to educate themselves, too impatient to withstand market downturns and/o...

re: CNBC: For millions of Americans, the 401k is a failure - slackster
There are two main problems IMO. The first is a lack of financial education. I'm a financial advisor and 90% of my clients walk in the door with no clue how their 401k and other retirement vehicles work. The second problem is how we define our wants and our needs. Far too often, wants are miside...

re: Most impressive record in all of sports? - slackster
I always mention this record in these type of threads. It is just incredible. On May 9th, 1999, Marshall McDougall from Florida State went 7-7 with 6 HRs, 16 RBIs, and 25 total bases. [quote]Obviously, Marshall McDougall had a lot of good games in 1999. But none came close to surpassing his g...
