re: Good ways to build human capital? - Cold Cous Cous
[quote]I hate to sound like an idiot....but what the hell is "human capital"? [/quote] It literally means being good at something. In the dystopian newspeak of 21st century corporate America, you don't learn a skill, you "develop human capital."...

re: My guitar crashed... - Cold Cous Cous
First inspect all the wires carefully for tiny nicks - doesn't take much to make a short. Then try jumping the pickup leads straight to the tip of a cable - just for a second, to see if it makes noise. If they work, it's probably a busted pot. Easy & cheap fix....

re: Is there an MP3 player that fits these specs? - Cold Cous Cous
[quote]Honestly, though, I would find an old used or refurbed 32GB ipod touch. It will cost quite a bit more, but I think the frustration saved by using a quality UI to navigate thousands of songs would be worth it.[/quote] Right the problem with ipods is that I am literally incapable of operating ...

Is there an MP3 player that fits these specs? - Cold Cous Cous
Looking for an old-school MP3 player, would prefer, in descending order of importance: • 20 GB storage or more • no video screen • no internet access It seems like the mp3 player market has split in two parts - one of tiny players with 2 GB of flash memory, the other of expensive tabl...

re: Did You Ever Shell Peas Growing Up? - Cold Cous Cous
I did. And to this day I love eating foods you have to work at - crabs, olives, walnuts. I really like the whole process of having to pick something apart to eat it; I think it makes me slow down and enjoy my food more. My wife thinks I'm nuts. ...

re: Inheritance From Parents? - Cold Cous Cous
It's very easy to get rich in 3 generations, just have only one kid. If you're the only child of only children of only children, you stand to inherit the wealth of 8 great-grandparents - a serious concentration of wealth, even if none of the great-grandparents was particularly wealthy. Add in the t...

re: City of New Orleans again pushes back deadline for bids on Confederate monument - Cold Cous Cous
[quote]There's a school of thought that Mitch really doesn't care if the statues ever come down (thats why the bid specs are geared toward making it impossible for any contractor to put a real # on the table). He's playing to his base, and if he ultimately has to admit defeat on the issue, he has st...

re: Looking for places to live in New Orleans - Cold Cous Cous
Definitely hit the pavement. Think of it this way - if it's easy for you to find online, it's easy for anyone to find it online. So the good ones get snatched up quick. But lots of landlords still don't do a great job of advertising, and it's really worth it to just go to the neighborhoods you thin...

re: Revisiting old thread - lsutraderman - Cold Cous Cous
Kinda kicking a guy when he's down but it's a good bump anyway. Way back many years ago there was an MT poster who called, almost exactly, the bottom of the '09 stock market (literally +-3 days). I've occasionally regretted not acting on that post, which seems genius in retrospect. But this reminds...
