The only problem is the troll is also macduff. This is rich! First of all, I am not Hocus. Second, if I were, how could Hocus troll his own board? mac Its easy. He claims "scores and scores" of supporters and "thousands of posts interested in his claims". I'm afraid I didnt understand the actual de...

Thanks for the update at TMF. Obviously, I no longer visit. It's quite amazing to me the direction that board has taken since I added it to my favorite boards back in late '97. Unfortunately, it's transformation into something else prompted me to remove it from my fav's 3-4 years or so later. One p...

Greetings th :) I'm happy your hanging around th. Because when any of you folks are posting about any other subject those posts are wonderful, informative and intelligent. Since I know there will be more of those type of posts in the future it's easier to skip over this stuff. I agree. Perhaps we c...

For th : You have really gone off the deep end by siding with telegraph in this series. Remember, what I told peteyperson . If ataloss insists bringing up the past, which he did, then we need to be able to respond with the context that existed at that time. If this is the deep end, I'm going to loo...

Except there has been a completely or largely unexpected event that has markedly affected stocks in an unusual manner at least once every 5 years in recorded history. Sometimes positive and sometimes negative. Sometimes more often than 5 years. This is why, in short to intermediate time periods, the...

th Uhh..I said that. And it had nothing to do in its original context with the "conventional methodology". Further, 60% stock is not something i'd consider "high". Further, the study absolutely showed many end balances higher than zero. No, you did not! You do not have to defend...

I think I'd like to stick you both in a hotel room with a couple of quarts of 10-40 motor oil and lock the door for a weekend.

Thats what I think.

It is like guys getting together talking about current dating opportunities and women and discussing Marilyn Monroe and everyone failing to mention that she's not available as she's dead. ROFL. I guess you could date her. It'd be a bit messy though. I wonder if she had a monkey?

Anyone remember an old piece of software (I remember this from the 70's but saw incarnations of it well into the early 90s). It was called "eliza" and it was supposed to emulate talking to a shrink. It started out saying "So tell me how you feel" and would look for certain key wo...

NOthing is absolutely safe for a 30 year withdrawal period. CDs/MMF can kill you in high inflation. At the time that that was written, the conventional methodology claimed that 4% was the maximum safe withdrawal rate. It required a high stock allocation. It said that you would not be assured of any...

It really didnt require a pro. Every darn thing you say screams "I'm angry and full of hate towards this person". I just asked the pro to look into it and tell me I'm not crazy. Like I said earlier on, gauging someones temperament on a BBS isnt a very exact science. But when you supply so ...

Sorry I could only stay interested enough to read the first paragraph. If you had other points, I didnt take them in.

Oh I did say so, but that seems to have been selectively filtered out. And I have reviewed any and all claims to determine stock market movement of periods less than 30 years. None work. None currently proposed can be determined to be successful until the period of time expires that they were suppos...

May I interject a difference of opinion? It appears that we're forcing opinions into black and white segments. I, and others, have said "the future is unknowable", and considerable liberty is taken with that statement here. Such statements, at least when I've uttered them, mean "the n...
