An Interview with XMFThump

How do you define success?

The Fool:
If you could go back in time and witness one event in history, what would you go back and see?
XMFThump:
The birth of each of my four kids.
The Fool:
What is your most distressing regret?

How I Invest

Half conservative, half aggressive. Set yourself up to play defense, then focus most of your effort on offense.
