Re: Appraisal came in approx 2 percent under

Let's see. You are buying a house worth $139,000. You have a purchase price that is $2,500 too high, a moisture problem that will cost $6800, and a new fridge for, say $500. So you are overpaying by $9600 or 6.9%. I would walk away.

Re: I Think I Need A New Laptop

One option is going wireless for your peripherals. I love not having to plug things in to my laptop. No more cables to mess with and I find myself using the laptop in many more places around the house.

Re: tips

Thanks, Ira. I was hoping for something a little more teen friendly than IRS pubs, maybe a video game app, but I guess it's never too early to dive into government documents.

Spend a few minutes shopping for flowers. The ads you then get on the Fool are pretty at least.

Re: What was in this to cause a $10+ drop ...

To buy all the ponies in the world would cost about $3 Billion, about the same as their quarterly dividend.

Re: Improvements in solar cycle research

Yet if solar activity means sunspot activity - which I expect it does - it isn't wrong at all.

Good catch. It is reasonable that sunspot numbers declined by 60% during the Maunder minimum. If this is what the research predicts, then [more]

Re: Improvements in solar cycle research

Predictions from the model suggest that solar activity will fall by 60 per cent during the 2030s to conditions last seen during the 'mini ice age' that began in 1645.

This is nonsense. If solar activity fell by 60% the oceans would [more]

Re: Even more uncomfortable airline seating

For years airlines tried to sell consumers on more amenities. Consumers ignored them and consistently went for the lowest fares. The airlines have finally taken this to heart and are now searching for the bottom. How miserable can they make the [more]

Re: Waiting for a charge

I suspect that we will pull into a service station and swap out the battery in about the time it currently takes to fill a gas tank. Designing a quick swap battery seems like it is well within current technology. We do this with propane tanks [more]

Re: CO2 lifetime in atmosphere

This exercise is flawed, sure you can come up with a theory, but it doesn't mean one is or is not the truth.

So, I can't say the Earth rotates, even though in the space age we have a multitude of observations showing that rotation?
