I'm not so worried about the equities market though. This is a natural correction or selloff. This is NOT a financial crisis. However, this is one indicator that the economy was (is) a little overheated, so maybe the equities market will expose some other weaknesses.


Let's see what happens.
And I had just convinced myself it'll be okay to wire you the cash for your 110! Damn stock market!



Somewhere along my path, I unsubscribed to the panic club. The correction was coming, so no surprise.

haha! Maybe we should get Defenders classified as a legitimate investment. that way folks could buy one and still call it a contribution to the 401k or SEP!!! We laugh, but those top shelf vintage Porsches and Ferraris absolutely crushed it (in terms of ROI) over the past decade. Fast forward five years and there will be a ETF that trades on blue chip vintage cars!!!


But yes agreed the market correction was coming. Europe is feeling a festival of pain more than us.

So many parallels to things I saw then. Banks proved themselves so incompetent or unprepared for the real world during that time.

It sucks for Europe with Greece, high unemployment, and ridiculous gov't spending...

But I'm happy it's worse for the Russians.

Last week I dumped the entire contents of my 401k into a stable value fund.

Let's see if I can take advantage of the situation this time.

Who came up with the euphemism "correction?"

It sounds like a term some armchair investor pundit made up.

Thanks Russ...I have no idea what I'm doing...I'm just operating on the fundamentals I learned from 2007-2009.

Still lost a little money off the top, but I guess since the market has just dropped massively, it wasn't real money to begin with.

Not that it has anything to do with the thread anymore but we finally closed on the house on Tuesday. We've put about 36 hours of work into it ourselves already. Made it official today by picking up the truck from Tom's house, where he'd generously kept it for me the past few months, and proud to report that it just barely fits in the garage.

Haha thanks. That was actually courtesy of the wall-to-wall carpeting we've been ripping up all weekend. FYI removing all the tacks from the stairs is a PAIN!!!! Still trying to finish up before the hardwood floor dudes come in for the week starting tomorrow.

Back yard as big as the front? Would love space like that.

You know demo work and removal goes a lot faster and is more fun when you have a party with beer and pizza as enticements?

Cute house and your first home together as a couple...that's awesome. Looks like you have plenty of room to build another garage...

Congratulations!

Yeah 750 acres of protected land that can never be developed, horse trails, etc. One of the main reasons we bought the place!

Nice place, Josh. So tell us about your dog containment plans. Thinking that pooch would like to go bat crazy, in a good way.
