Re: Hard Assets - Some Off-the-Beaten-Path Ideas

Last year, I played around with keeping one of these in my carry on bag for a while. 500 watt hotplate / dual voltage 110 or 220. About 5" diameter. It turned out to be just too much of a pain to pack and carry through airports, so I ditched it pretty quickly. Worked well, though. hotplate.jpeg I d...

Re: Daily "Check In" Thread For Us

... A Chinese language professor was fired because in his lesson he was teaching a word that sounded like the n-bomb to English speaking people. The administration said that this kind of conduct was unacceptable and not inclusive. What? That's the way the word in the Chinese language just happens t...

P.S. Hard Assets - if it hasn’t been mentioned, the Reveal podcast on fake art was really interesting. It seems like fakes and copies are keeping some places in business.

Re: Hard Assets - Some Off-the-Beaten-Path Ideas

I doubt gas ranges are any more efficient than old ones, but for sure refrigerators are - good point. Yea, something like a gas range I think going for as simple and durable as possible is the smartest thing. I don't understand the $15,000 Viking thing or whatever the fancy ones are. I like how som...

O0 It’s always that charge of collaboration with the enemy, stabbing the righteous natives in the back that excuses the pogroms and torture of those rootless people, eh, Murph?

Re: Poll: Have You Thought Of Leaving Forum Because Of Politics?

I do not care about politics, especially in US. Its pretty impressive that out of 300M people you have those 2 candidates to choose from. There is a whittling down process, Vil. Don't you have that in Bulgaria? O0 As they say- anyone who wants to run for office is, by definition, unfit to rule. Or ...
