      Oh please. In the old days a dentist actually had to create the amalgam from scratch, mixing mercury with other metals before beginning to place it. If placing a gold foil filling it all had to be...

      Silver below $16 today. Gold below $1200. I wonder if Sprott is picking out his ledge to jump from. Having bought heavily in the $34 and up range nezraM must not be able to afford an internet...

      I just got a call from my mechanic who has fixed my fan rather than replacing it. He opened it up and I guess when it heated up some part was making contact with the outer shell and blowing a fuse...

      I think CAD/CAM has changed dentistry (not oral surgery) to a large degree, and cavity finding technology, and new imaging tech has as well. Dentists can still practice like they always have if they...

      I'm staring to wonder myself. We have a black president, a disappearing middle class, a near police state, and Ebola. We are starting to look more and more like a backward country in Africa every...

      I have to think your definition of "fact" equals my definition of "opinion". What you stated was pure opinion based on no knowledge, probably the same way you invest. I guess if I make a profitable...

      The sky is not always blue, at night its almost black, and when its cloudy during the day its often gray or white. So its more subjective than you realize obviously. See? I can be a pedantic jerk...

      Holy straw man batman! No, you focused on the hidden fees, I simply stated I didn't have to pay the redemption fee since I held for OVER a year, not a year exactly. Do you understand what a...

      So its repeatable then. If oil prices drop precipitously, which they seem to be doing, and I buy the fund again, there is a good chance the fund price will increase in over a year's time. You can't...

      More high-minded blather. If economics was science it would be provable. Clearly there are schools of opinion that are very different. In physics, there aren't multiple definitions of the rate of...

      What a bunch of high-minded blather. If the fees are hidden, by definition I wouldn't know about them, that's what hidden means. The fee I was talking about was the 2% redemption fee which I didn't...

      Declaring something as unequivocally "false" is really a sign of a lack of nuance on your part. Rarely are things true or false in investing, unless you believe investing and economics is an actual...

      Take a look at the exhaust manifold cover. Often oil seeps out of the intake boot on to the manifold and then burns once its hot. I put a zip tie around the connection to keep it tight and it seems...

      I bought the GAP fan and its worked well for a couple years now. I think they are well built for the price. I replaced the rad too, with OEM, and its good quality unless you are racing or...

      Actually this was an energy mutual fund in a 401k so there was little choice being the only fund with any oil stocks. The only caveat was there was an early redemption fee of 2% if sold prior to a...
