re: Pickup Truck Wars: 2017 Ford Super Duty - dragginass
Yup, experience with 7.3's and 6.0's. I have a built 6.0 currently, and I know how much more efficient it is than any 7.3. I hand calculate mileage regularly. ...

re: CFA designation. - dragginass
[quote]Considering random guessing gets you 33%, you didn't exactly blow it out of the water. [/quote] This isn't the OT. I wasn't boasting, bragging, or embellishing. I don't know if 55% without studying makes me a moron or a genius, my point was merely relative to my interest in the subject m...

re: How much is an oil change (non dealer)? - dragginass
That's why you drive the vehicle before an oil change. If there is "sludge" in the bottom of your pan that isn't getting carried with the oil flow then you have bigger probs. The local MB dealers use the extractors exclusively. I love my mityvac....

re: CFA designation. - dragginass
Thanks for the advice. I'm not "genius smart", but without studying I took a practice test and got about 55% right. Now, maybe that next 20% of improvement/studying is where the genius comes in, but I'd like to see how intuitive the material is to me once I start studying. I won't sacrifice my fa...

re: CFA designation. - dragginass
I'm not sure what niche I'd find at this point, though business valuation would interest me. I have young kids, so at this point I think I'm going to purchase the LVL 1 hard copy books so I can begin reviewing the material and see how it fits into my life at this point. I think there are even 3rd ...

CFA designation. - dragginass
Thinking about starting to study for the CFA. I realize it's much more specialized than an MBA, but it seems to be more respected. I don't really have any desire to stack it with a CFP and be a glorified salesman. My main reason for pursuing it is personal, but if I did actually want a career cha...

re: LSU Law Professor writes article for NYT - dragginass
Tyson was on the Jim Engster radio show thus afternoon. I don't like either one, but I listened as long as I could this evening. Tyson was explaining how it's racist to judge a young black man in a hoodie (as being up to no good), but it's NOT racist to judge the intentions of the cops based on ...
