Re: Anyone Home?

Hi Bullet:

I'm home. Alive and well with a bit of a trick knee at the moment. Otherwise, thriving.

Re: Just Bought Some Costco

When the AMZN news came out, COST was the first stock I thought about buying.

Didn't do it, though. I know a lot of people who shop there and everyone loves it. But me, I'm a retired guy with a household of two and I am not partial [more]

Re: Thurs Trivia

My only other comment is that my knowledge of fluid dynamics is limited to beverages. Some go down faster than others (in my case, good wine).

Speaking of beverages, there was an article in my alumni magazine a while back about a guy who [more]

Re: Thurs Trivia

This isn't like the-small-object-falls-at-the-same-speed-as-the-big-object-only-different kind of a physics thingie is it?

Re: Death threats: Dem Challenger Forced Out

Forgot Regan, who survived. My bad. We have had 45 Presidents and 8.9% of them have been killed by assassins

Re: Golf vs Terrorism

Trump has already figured out what to do about terrorism; if something happens, blame Obama.

Re: Why Paris was axed

Any agreement that might prevent Mar A Logo from being turned into a malarial swamp is bad as far as I'm concerned, so I am glad The Donald decided to crap where he eats!

Re: What Ted Williams Knew

What I found interesting is how Ryan Zimmerman of the Nats has used the swing angle analysis and is hitting more homers than ever.

Zimmerman is a smart guy, UVA and all. Injuries aside, why did it take him so long to figure all this out? [more]

What Ted Williams Knew

Ted Williams was adamant that you should uppercut the ball when hitting. In part, he felt this was the way to go because the pitched ball was going down due to gravity. The slight uppercut also provides a launch angle with allows the ball to leave [more]

Re: Profit Sharing in Funds

It's like a trader at Goldman once told me; the only way to hedge a long put is with another long put.

Re: Any Liberals retired Early?

I don't hang out here much but am considered a leftist by denizens of the wing-nut boards.

Trump Weighs Staff Shakeup

The President has to blame someone for the mess he has gotten himself into. This Priebus and Butthead Show can't go on, so maybe a new Chief of Staff would help.
