Wife just told me she wants a silver Camaro. What should I do? Both of mine take up the existing garage. Guess it's time to draw up the plans for the ultimate garage.

We kind of got screwed, we missed the tech boom and also missed the low commodity prices. If I had a time machine, I'd go back 15 years and buy ALL THE SILVER AND GOLD haha. Oh and that Google stock I heard something about
hindsight is 20/20 take some calculated risks if not try VTA

Better than parking cash in your money market and just as liquid

Motley Fool is a pretty good website. Take the risks you can, I tell anyone if you can't afford to lose it all in the stock market don't put it in. Personally I started with dividend funds (Ford/Intel, made close to 25% on those 2 overall, plus dividends at roughly 3-4% which is better than any money market/CD out there) That was the main reason for investing, I was looking at my checking account and steadily watched interest rates drop as the economy went down and just seems crazy not earn on money I'm not using.

For a safe bet I love Vanguard Mutual Funds, their Dividend fund closely matches the S&P which usually beats the market overall, as well as their Windsor II fund if well balanced, plus you can't beat their expense ratios.

You'll win and lose, I've had stocks go down 99% which I still hold since it's pointless to sell at this level, but I've also tripled money on a stock, recently I owned Power One (PWER) bought at $4, it was recently bought out for 6.50 a share. Sell when it's high, buy when it's low, I bought into Nike at a low point and have made almost 25% in just over a month. Now I don't have hundreds of thousands so it may appear miniscule but it's all a percentages game. I would love to do day trading once I safely have 10,000 in capital purely for that.



Definitely, so don't buy into 3/5 year charts, 2007-early 2009 saw most stocks go down 20-50%, 2009-now have seen most go up 15-60%. So anyone who says they've made money the last 3 years is an idiot, why? Because anyone with money in the market with half a brain could have increased their money 50% plus in the last 3 years.

Mutual funds offer less risk but less reward, stocks are higher risk but high reward so keep it diversified. At most of our ages you can afford to be risky (within reason), but also save up for retirement, Lifetime funds which you put in your retirement year are great because the advisors shift the holdings less risky as you get closer. Unless you're lucky enough to have a matching retirement portfolio, then certainly do that first, me since I don't put money into my Roth.

Sound advise I wish I could bank cash in a Roth. Remember one thing be greedy when others are cautious and be cautious when others are greedy. TAKE profit when you can don't look back after you have made a buck or two and regret making a buck. Many others have failed to regret making a buck and have watched their profits dwindle waiting for the market to rebound. My greatest learning experience was Cisco systems and I started buying it in 1995 oh how I wish I sold it in 1999. Long story sore subject

So I have amber halos on the front of my car as DRLs. I was given a ticket a month or so ago and now going to contest it later today in court.

The officer said it was red, even after I said it was amber.

Why don't you pull up the official documents from AAC that prove without a doubt that it's amber and not red? I'd take those with me for sure

I don't think they're dot approved anyway. I could sell green lights and label them amber doesn't mean anything.

Wow, ok so get this, even after

1) Showing the judge the AAC invoice which said amber

2) The two pictures that I have already posted in this thread

3) Saying this: According to Florida Statutes Title 23, Chapter 316, Section 224, Part 1: “Front Clearance lamps, identification lamps, and those marker lamps and reflectors mounted on the front or on the side near the front of a vehicle shall display or reflect an amber color.”


The judge was undecided. She has decided to mull over it for 5 days (forgot the legal term) and then report the decision.


If I lose, I'm appealing again and getting a lawyer. Forget the money, now it's on principle.
