Re: Money on the Table

It will all depend on needs and wants. I didn't want kids. I didn't need (or want) a car. So I didn't need a lot of income. When I was last working, in 2006, my basic needs could be had for about $700-$800 a month.

Re: Walter Palmer, May Your Clients Walk Out On

I'm not defending trophy hunting. I don't understand the mentality behind it, I don't support it, and I think this dentist is getting what he deserves. But I thought the article had an interesting perspective on how the economics of it can result in [more]

Slow Leak

My right front tire has a slow leak. I've been just filling it up regularly when the light comes on. It needs more air every couple weeks. Is this a serious problem? Does it increase the risk of a big blow out? I've heard there are cans of foam you [more]

Then there's the whole civil asset forfeiture thing for carrying lots of cash. Don't know if the same applies to precious metals, but it seems that civil rights and common sense are in short supply.

Re: Pulse event could kill most of us

You need some remedial education in GMP/EMP events and in describing accurately what I said.
