Re: Black Thursday/Friday

They don't want to work holidays but everyone else should so they can buy stuff!!!

I tend to ignore "poor planning" gripes like that. I bought what I needed to last till today on the 23rd, because I didn't want to go [more]

Re: Santa Claus

I always told my daughter that the reason other kids got better stuff was because parents had to pay Santa and his elves for the gifts. Santa was just a delivery/keeping-track-of-behavior service.

I really regret missing out on those [more]

Re: Dealing with time required to eat healthy

For breakfast, I have been into roasted zuchinni or yellow squashes lately, when having a fried egg. My substitution, since I can't do bread :)

Hmm. I thought I was being innovative with sweet potato and eggs. Dice a sweet potato, [more]

Re: Santa Claus

Leroy Jethro is now OBSESSED with Santa, probably from pre-school.

This probably won't help you, but your situation brings back memories from the past.

Re: Abundance without attachment

It's not always about buying things, but also the security or future stability it reflects.

I relate to this. I can do without a lot of stuff, but I crave the security that a big pile of financial assets represents.

Re: Is this True?

Hi, we just paid $50 to have a rock chip repaired in a windshield, with the clear goo.

A relative tells me that all it is is Super Glue and that I could have done it myself for $3.

Re: Discover bonus cashback

They followed it with a less rich offer that required $1000 in purchases each month for 3 months. I didn't bother registering for that one.

And in today's mail, Discover offers me $75 bonus cash back if I charge $500 per calendar [more]

Re: Discover bonus cashback

Heh. I took them up on an offer of $75 bonus for $1000 in purchases over 2 to 3 months a while back. It was kind of interesting to see all the opportunities for spoilage of rewards that were built in to how it worked. I ended up getting $80 worth of [more]

Re: The Thankful For List

Thanks for all the replies. I think I've got it now, and I feel less stupid at having been confused after seeing that others also managed to trip over the details.

Buy-write tax treatment

I recently executed my first buy-write transaction. I believe the most likely scenario is that I will get called out for a short term capital gain of the proceeds from being called out less the net amount paid to open the position.

Re: Raising Credit Score From Zero to 789, in 26

Essentially the system we have right now assumes anyone new is a terrible credit risk.

No, it assumes that their credit risk is completely unknown and could be either good or bad, not that they are a terrible credit
