Re: Anyone Else Prepping?

I saw a graphic that said soap can actually penetrate and destroy this particular coronavirus.

I don’t have any way to verify if that’s correct... hopefully it wasn’t just a meme!

Now there are "active shooter" drills regularly carried out in schools (or, at least that is the impression I am under).
They are called "lockdown" drills around here. Sounds a little better.

IndyCar is real racing, while NASCAR is merely racing-themed entertainment. ;D

Re: Rebalance during these days of high volatility?

Everyone just has to find the right balance for them. If you're checking constantly and want to use a hair-trigger to rebalance, that's fine but certainly not required. Some people may only check their accounts a few times a year and will miss short periods of extreme volatility, and that's fine too...

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

Regarding tests, where were they going to come from... out of thin air? Is it possible that US regulations have slowed the development and manufacture of necessary testing materials? If anyone here was President, what would you have done or be doing differently (accepting that hindsight is 20/20)? I...

Re: Transitioning from a Boglehead 60/40 to Permanent Portfolio

Thanks for the ideas. I am thinking that I will convert half of it (along with anything new contributed) to the PP and leave the other half 60/40 and then slowly DCA it. How do you all handle your 401K? I will probably leave mine at 60/40 since there are such limited options (no LT treasuries, gold...

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

I have parents 80+ that watch MSNBC, so I feel your pain. I can’t really speak to what people 80+ believe. But surely(?) you realize that Trump was not calling the coronavirus a hoax. He was (rightly or wrongly) calling the Democrats’ extensive criticism of the administration’s response a hoax. Of c...
