re: Would you invest one of your retirement accounts with a friend? - Volvagia
Well yeah. The only way to approach this is to look at the offerings and numbers without considering the names. Although the impression I'm getting from him selling the idea but not actually selling the product makes me want to run far far away from it. And the peer pressure angle used is a...

re: Woman Uses Sperm from Oral Sex to Get Pregnant; Wins Child Support in Court Case - Volvagia
At the end of the day, there must be a reason why pharm companies don't want to touch it. The only real way the promising approaches are doing it is physical rather than chemical. Either Vasogel or an Eppin based drug. From the sounds of it, it may be the latter and the reason why other ...

re: Would you invest one of your retirement accounts with a friend? - Volvagia
Is he offering better terms or is he just fishing for a larger base to get fees from? I mean it's kind of a catch, the adage of business and friends/family is always a strong cautionary tale.....but most of the best managers are closed because everyone wants to put their money in there resulting ...

re: Start buying gold and silver now - Volvagia
[quote]Still, the volatility is staggering. The Dow moved up and down over 3000 points in the first 90 seconds of trading today[/quote] That's the main thing that keeps me from thinking that this is just a correction. Even if there is no "trigger" for a crash, all of this pent up panic make e...

re: So tell me why I shouldn't sell out and move everything if the market evens out - Volvagia
I was speaking from the impression that I was being "called out" so was covering all the bases. While I'm sure you will almost always get countermanding data if you look at every thing, I only attempt to make general statements of the present situation. So I don't use everything, and then I ...

This: some form of global upheaval in the markets Indicators: deteriorating global market internals/PMI over the past few months, and commodities in general taking a draw down, particularly the highly publicized oil crash, which knocked the majors hard and injected a healthy dose of fearful senti...

re: So tell me why I shouldn't sell out and move everything if the market evens out - Volvagia
One important thing to do if you are a savy investor is risk management. But that is not timing the market. Example: If you saw the indicators (and they were there) that this was coming and you slowly increased allocation into more conservative aspects as a result, you now have capital to ...

re: Tipping is out of control in America - can we abolish it? - Volvagia
No. I anticipate pricing to be highly variable and considered thing like any business, not just 20% added to everything. You obviously not only want tipping to be depressed, but would like to have built in ways for you evade the sunk costs inherent in it even after the fact. Essentially ...

And yes, I was well aware you were referring to a post tip scenario. "My question is, would restaurants charge the same price for togo orders when it should be cheaper since they don't have to provide a worker to wait on you?"...

To be fair, it is kinda silly to expect a tip from a consumer when you gave them a significant delivery charge that is often tiered to the level of service provided. ...
