Re: Cannabis goes retail...Vancouver-WA

There must have been a market shortage of "approved" product. I heard on NPR that the going rate for legal marijuana was $25/gram. (There are 28+ grams/ounce. [more]

Re: Economics of renewable energy

Ummm, why is this an either/or question?

FM,

Instead of moving all that water around constantly, why not set up some sort of water trading system? Here's what Australia has done.

The Australian water market is the buying and selling of water. It is made up of several [more]

I'm thinking a network of reservoirs and aqueducts shifting H2O around keeping the entire system in balanced all the time.

Re: CA Drought threatens aquifers next

FM,

Creating a national water conservation system is pretty ambitious. The negotiations would likely be going on into the next century. It always seems like the guy "over there" has lots of water, mostly because its far enough away [more]

Re: NYT: Life expectancy by county

Good thoughts heading your way!

At least you had a deadline for offers. It must be a better market than 5+ years ago.

Re: Fidelity brokerage link

Check with your employer's rules for using the BrokerageLink account. They can vary a lot.

I used a BrokerageLink account in the early-mid 2000's, but I paid 0.25% for what I moved into it. It was worth it for me then, since the 401k [more]

Re: Change a watch battery

I've never changed a battery in my Swiss Army watch. It's pushing 20 years or more. It needs a special tool.

However, I have changed the watchband many times. I use a jeweler's tweezers. Takes less than 5 minutes. (Summer sweat does in the [more]

Re: x-post about wind turbine farms

it turns out that at any given time ~10% to almost 20% were not working when we would pass. I think the newer ones we drive by (in Northern Arizona and Texas panhadle) probably do a little bit better. But still, I have yet to pass a wind farm [more]
