I think you can read any heinous quote out loud so long as it isn't your thoughts.


You should try that at work today, let us know how it goes. May I type the words you read? Please attribute them to MakeItRain.
Didn't think it needed said but obviously context matters. You can read out of Mein Kampf in front of Jewish people if you're in a Dictatorship 101 classroom, but not a good idea on a street corner.

I'd say it's a bigger violation to read someone's words without permission than the content of the quote. I think you can read any heinous quote out loud so long as it isn't your thoughts.

That said, what a dumbass.

If we get out of this without a recession, or even just a minor one, it's a huge, huge win.

Well if the last two years don’t serve as a pretty sobering reminder that RB’s do not grow on trees I’m not sure what does
Serviceable RBs aren't uncommon, but dudes that can house it on any given play are. I'm not convinced Edwards is actually a college RB, but he's definitely a guy that is a TD threat every single play.

I appreciate your property management stories and they don’t run me the wrong way despite me having absolutely zero interest in ever doing that crap. People are all different and can be happy in different ways.
I agree, and know REI is not for everyone. I also think people think they will be getting 2am calls about clogged toilets, but that shouldn't be the case.

All that being said, I just want people to know there are more options than simply stock market investing.
I think people know it’s out there cause there are endless products and services pushing it as a great investment. It really just comes down to whether people enjoy it as a hobby.

For people who feel overwhelmed by the prospect of investing their money, index funds and tax advantaged accounts are incredibly easy to learn and require no excess skills, capital, or time. The barrier to RE investing is so high that the only people going down that path are ones who are already convinced that’s what they want to do.
The stock market is definitely easier, but many of your other points aren't altogether true. It does require some education, but the high barrier due to capital limitations can be navigated around. I may have mentioned how in the RE Investing thread, but can't remember. Don't want to hijack this thread further, but could discuss there or through pm if anyone wants.
KITN, you're starting to give off Jehovah's Witness vibes now.
Yep, I rub people wrong. :(

also getting super defensive about it probably is another reason
Didn't think I was.

Man, when I first started learning more about investing/FIRE I was all about figuring out as much as I can about how the best/most effeficient ways to invest (hence why I started this thread) but after you realize its

1. Invest as much as you can in your tax advantaged accounts (401K/IRA/rIRA/HSA etc)
2. Invest in index funds
3. Repeat for 30 years

It got kind of boring. I pretty much maxed all of my tax advantaged accounts for a couple of years in my late 20's/early 30's and now I've scaled back to let compounding interest do its work.

At some point you take a look at your lifestyle and realize the diminishing returns of saving at a high rate to retire at 50 vs 55 vs 60 etc. I'm still throwing in around 20% of my income to retirement/savings but that is dialed back from the 40% savings rate I was at a couple of years ago and I'm perfectly OKAY with it.

I used to calculate and record my net worth on a spreadsheet like once a quarter for a couple of years but now I do it about once a year or less...but if STONKS start going wild again I'll probably do it more frequently
I don't know if there are any other people here that do what I do, I get the feeling I rub people wrong when I talk about RE investing, but it sincerely saddens me when steps 1-3 is WIDELY considered the way. 1-3 is an option, but there are others that do as good or better and certainly more tax advantaged.

I think that’s still stupidly, just subject to the same excuse.

Why? Some long-play where hopefully a player transfers back to KSU? Nah, light his ass up. If his (any player, especially a sought after de-commit) team plays us he should be welcomed with boos and heckled relentlessly. That’s college sports and a big part of what makes it great.
It serves no purpose other than to tell the world you’re horribly insecure. He never took up a scholarship or roster spot here. We didn’t pour any more resources into him than any other high caliber recruit we chased.
Yea, grown adults, even in Twitter world, talking crap to a high school kid is pathetic.

I don't see why a recruit/school can't get commitment signatures when they want...after an agreed upon time frame. Maybe the first of the year after their junior season or something. The early signing period was a step in the right direction, but still not perfect.

Still kinda hurts, SD. But before everyone worries about me, if we get Randle I'll be ok.

So this may have been discussed, but since I don't want to read the whole thread...

Is there an app that shows specific recommended GPS locations to fish? Basically so if you're in an unfamiliar area, you can see specific places at local lakes/rivers that are good places to try.

They have two high level RB’s that’s for sure, WR’s are nice too. It’s just too hard to get good OL transfers and developing the ones they can get takes 2-3 years.
Saw soon phog posts where they said their OL recruiting is straight dogshit

I listened to some analysis yesterday that mostly agrees with that based on current inventory and new home starts relative to demand. The amount referenced of institutional buyers as a percentage of total homes bought last year was at nearly 20% which I thought was very high. Certainly seems like we are not going to repeat 2008.
I read that it was 13%.

I agree with SD, at most I see a flattening, but probably nothing like a crash. It is, and has been, a supply/demand issue. Rates could get high enough to significantly drop the prices, but I don't think that will happen.

I'm putting my money where my mouth is on that. But my property values are largely based on NOI, and I definitely don't see the desire for cashflow, tax savings, equity growth, and an inflation hedge going away any time soon.

Lots of smoke around Colorado and Arizona, hopefully they can snag the four corners and get to 16.
If 2 schools leave the PAC, all others will scramble to get out too. UO and UW would have no other options but to go anywhere else they can

22
If by merge you mean the best 6 remaining non Stanford P12 schools get absorbed and branded as a new Big 12 I completely agree

This is correct. Wazzu, Oregon St., Cal, would all dilute the payouts even more. No reason to life raft the riff raff.

That’s what schools like that think about KSU, etc. when contemplating the pac 12 taking big 12 schools.

Both conferences should put ego aside and merge into something awesome and appreciate having jobber teams in the league that will allow for their top teams each year to go undefeated rather than having parity.

 That is very true about KSU and it probably isn't going to change. So if teams get relegated and it isn't us, seems like that would do nothing but help us.
I'm tired of singing kumbaya by the campfire. It's time to sweep the leg.

If Wazzu and Lil OSU have to be killed to keep our spot at the table then so be it.
Not to mention zero chance they give a eff about us if the roles were reversed.

I hate what has happened to college athletics as much as anyone, but nobody is floating us a lifeline if we end up in a bad spot. I want whatever is best for us at this point, so if that means some other schools unfortunately get shorted, welp...

It's really kind of a dumb bonus, but having 12 states in the conference works with the name. Saw that in this thread or Twitter, don't remember.

I don't know what's going on here.
