Bummer. If I lost hours due to lifts being down, and the mountain told me to pound sand, I'd dispute the charge with the credit card company. Takes just a few minutes online or on the phone. The...

I agree that Major is not a troll and is generally a good guy. But a large number of his posts had disinformation or views on COVID-19 that were not good for public health. I hope he's more careful...

Yes--private sector is much more efficient, but only the federal government is big enough to coordinate on the massive scale necessary. Appalling that they have not done this already

This is one of the really messed up things about our society. Colleges are supposed to be the onramp to American meritocracy. But too many kids have to weigh the finances too carefully, and then...

You've sort of lost the general point which is that very few people have significant wealth in the stock market. First, on the specifics--do you know many 30 somethings with $100K in the market? ...

True, but not really. If you have $100K or so in the stock market via your 401K, you might pick up $7-8K/year on average. That's nice, but hardly earth-shaking.

Also, as the past 12 years have...

I went to Penn (the Ivy, not the football powerhouse). In 1985, tuition was $10K.

I agree that the fault is largely with the colleges. An irony for you in return--as the financial support has grown, college has become less affordable in total.

This is exactly it. If you've had money in the stock market or similar investments, it's been a gusher of additional wealth for approximately the last 12 years.

I thought I answered it? The value of Mobil 1 is stretching the time between oil changes, in some cases dramatically. A BMW, just for example, can go something like 15,000 miles and 12 months...
