re: 7.8 Earthquake in Nepal; 1800+ dead; Avalanche Kills 17+ on Everest - Jim Rockford

There were probably other avalanches we haven't heard about yet, but remember, this was a huge earthquake that shook ...

I don't mean to sound callous, but I hope resources aren't being taken away from the indigenous relief effort to rescue wealthy foreigners. It's an awful situation, but if you put yourself in a situation like that, you have to go into it knowing you put yourself in a high risk environment and if the...

re: How do people let themselves get into such dire straits financially? - Jim Rockford

They'll be ballin', then have a couple of bad months, key piece of equipment breaks down, whatever, and be on the verge of bankruptcy six months later. Same with their personal finances. I've seen it happen a lot....
