re: Is Twitter a buy? - Beerinthepocket
if you can do the following it's a definite buy: 1. Buy a controlling share 2. Stack the board in your favor 3. Become buddies with Mark Zuckerberg 4. Convince your new buddy to buy Twitter at a premium paid in Facebook shares. If you can't do that I'd just buy Facebook shares....

re: Las Vegas Bachelor party on a budget - Beerinthepocket
It's not damn near impossible to get 8 dudes in the club at the same time. You just talk to the VIP host and get bottle service with a $3k-$10k minimum depending on the club and the DJ. It is in fact impossible if you are trying to just pay cover and go in. Just don't even try to do Vegas on a...

re: Vacation time, how does it work for you? - Beerinthepocket
200 hours (25 days) PTO to use for anything (vacation, sick, personal). Still have to charge almost 2000 hours to clients each year so it's really more like flex time than PTO bc you have to make up for it by working overtime. We do get holidays on top of those PTO days, usually 8-12 days a year dep...

re: Should parents supports their kids in college? - Beerinthepocket
[quote]chalmetteowl[/quote] Isn't fair to the kids that have to support themselves? Life isn't fair. Is that the excuse you are going to give your kids when you explain to them why you don't think investing in their future is important even though you have the means?...

re: Should parents supports their kids in college? - Beerinthepocket
[quote]TigerTroll11[/quote] Solid reasoning there. Paying for your kids education is the single best thing you can do to ensure their financial success. If I had to pay for my education I would have missed many investment opportunities as I would have had to be paying back debt, not investing ...

re: Should parents supports their kids in college? - Beerinthepocket
I'm going to do the same as my parents did for me. Pay for all education as long as it's gainful education, you must make a 3.0 or higher, and you have to work during the summer (for the experience, not the money)....

re: MSM war on the tech industry - Beerinthepocket
They want the makeup of tech companies work force to look like the population as a whole, but that isn't possible. Ex.: while African Americans may make up 12% of the population they may only make up 2% of those qualified to work for the likes of Google or Apple....

re: MSM war on the tech industry - Beerinthepocket
Are you trying to be this dense? USA Today is a part of the main stream media and the OP is pointing out that USA Today(and others in the MSM) is constantly writing articles critical of the hiring practices of the tech industry. If you still fail to understand what is being discussed, please aban...

re: If you had 10k to invest - Beerinthepocket
Pretty sure there was a what to invest $9k in a few weeks ago as well. Go to that thread and add $1k to what they said to do. Investment strategies are not going to change that much from having $1k-$300k to invest. Your options and strategy really only changes once you break the income or net wor...
