Re: How to sell revisited...

It's a puzzle, but I come down with not selling it.

Re: Luk Vs Brk, S&P over 10 years

I posted this chart on the BRK board a while ago.

Distressed RE REIT?

My son approached me with the bright idea that he should buy a parcel of land in Detroit. His reasoning is that real estate now is cheap in Detroit and long-term would likely come out of a slump and do well. He's thinking 20-40 years for this. He's [more]

Re: Tupperware (TUP)

When the Chinese will forgo revenue for the sake of electric vehicles you know they are serious. The total loss to municipal coffers looks like $6,000,000. And it isn't as if Chinese Tesla owners couldn't afford it....

Re: N.Y. Doc tests positive for Ebola

See the next post. A classic case of not knowing something we don't know.

N.Y. Doc tests positive for Ebola

So.....

How did he get the virus? If it was in some obvious way (say, touching a victim) then why didn't he check in earlier?

Or is something really bad going on?

Re: tee it forward?

I've found that after a certain awkwardness getting used to the various tees it is more fun.

IMO the fun of hitting shorter irons into the greens quickly displaces the tentative feelings about which tees to use.
