I'd better be careful for fear of a 19-year-old 2nd year Econ major tells me I speak nonsense.

When I am wrong, I admit it so that I can correct myself and I like to be told. When others attack me, I defense myself. And, the attacker'd better be ready for a good fight. I don't fight if I cannot win.

Yes, after a few minutes, let by gone be by gone comes to mind - so does the second and minute pass by that will never return.

I thank many people who taught me great lessons when I was young; never worked with people who were not 10+ years old than I (my bosses). I am always grateful for their time and willingness to point out my wrongs and my "lack of general knowledge" and "specific knowledge".

I can sense another person's strength and weakness from hiring hundreds of people during my career. Give credit where credit is due (not kissing your Butts), you do have many qualities many older people won't come close.

I only wish I can play the "game" of life, I play poorly when I do.

Respectfully,
Lazy

Even when loss exceeding gain?

By the way, everyone in the developed countries is into it directly or indirectly; pension funds; govenment finance; the company you work for, etc. May as well have some understanding in how it works.

I have not begun talking about the game industry that most folks here have hell a lot more knowledge than I.
I'm not exactly sure about the number, but I believe you have to give 5% of the earnings on bonds and stock. It doesn't appear anywhere in your personal tax.
Here many people use the 17% rule, which means your stock needs to go up more then 17% before you can sell it with reasonable profit.

Listing long term gains from stock grant options; nothing much aout short term; certainly can be looked into.

Off the topic; interesting read

For reason unknown AMD stock shot up to >$26 this morning (highest in the past three years) and >$1 higher than Intel, while the market is flat.
