Re: Daily "Check In" Thread For Us

Hot and muggy here in NYC today. I went outside for a walk early this morning, before it got too hot. Heading out of town for a day trip tomorrow. I was checking out cars on the walk too, as I'm considering buying one. Between the endless lockdowns/remote work and the breakdown of public transporta...

Re: HCQ does work

No it doesn't. Thanks for posting this tech, but it's an observational study just like the one I posted from New England Journal of Medicine that did not find a difference between treatments. I've said already that I completely support prospective, randomized clinical trials and that's what's neede...

HCQ does work

"According to a protocol-based treatment algorithm, among hospitalized patients, use of hydroxychloroquine alone and in combination with azithromycin was associated with a significant reduction in-hospital mortality compared to not receiving hydroxychloroquine." https://www.ijidonline.com/article/S1...

Re: Ray Dalio: Money, Credit, Debt and Economic Activity

So, I was perusing through the hallowed ground of the original HB PP thread. I came across a post from one of the more prominent Bogleheads named Rick Ferri, whose comments are very relevant to this discussion here. That speculation comment qualifies as one of the worst economic predictions in mode...

Re: The tech-dumbell portfolio

I am VERY drawn to a portfolio of cash and gold right now along with paying off all of my existing debt. The PP has served me well. And I am well aware of the money lost over the years thinking "this time is different." I didn't think this time was different in the tech bubble nor in 2008. But I ju...

More Voters Rule Out Trump Than Biden
Thursday, July 2, 2020
Mixed results on who has presidential ‘stamina’

That's not Biden.

Re: Isn't there an Avatar Thread?

Tech, I bought a $30 Wahl haircutting kit from Amazon. Pretty good as long as one's wife wants to take a chance. Small possibility to get it wrong, though, and with nobody else around, it will grow back unnoticed. With my 4th cut coming up my barber is getting really good. And the haircut kit paid ...
